It’s hard to imagine two people at the beach more fit than Matt and Megan Titus.
As owners of SoWal CrossFit (NWFL Fitness), these two are “in it to win it” when it comes to health and fitness.

Trading in “bad habits” for “healthy habits,” they decided back in 2011 to pursue a healthier lifestyle.

Red Tide can ruin a day at the beach in Walton County, Florida. Luckily, Red Tide is pretty rare in South Walton. The 30A beaches rarely get Red Tide, but when it come it is no fun.
