So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

Sweat means nothing.

Well, it doesn't mean NOTHING, but we seem to think it has a much larger role than it really does. For SOME reason we think sweat is a clear indicator of fat burn. It's time we had a talk about sweat, fat burn, and how it all REALLY works.

Have you had a good "sweat session" lately?

This idea is dead wrong...

What's in this episode:

  • We talk about life, and how some things never change
  • My current progress, and the progress of someone else, too…
  • A little unsolicited advice about muscle soreness and artificial sweeteners
  • And we have a BIG, rather educational discussion about sweating, fat burn, how they each work, and the relationship between the two.
