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.

Some lessons shouldn't be learned the hard way.

There's always fads that come and go, and it's usually ok to let people learn from their mistakes. Some mistakes, though... are too harmful for trial and error...

I care. Sometimes, too much.

There are a lot of different diet fads and fitness fads that fly around from time to time. Everyone is always looking for the quick fix... the magic button... the easy answer. Most of them, honestly, are relatively harmless. The worst thing that'll happen as a result of trial and error, in most cases, is bouncing back and regaining the weight you lost. Well, that and a modest sum of wasted time and money.

Sometimes, though, more is on the line.

While most fitness and diet fads are relatively harmless, some can land you in real hot water. Not everything is safe to try at home, by yourself, unsupervised and unguided. Oftentimes people simply don't realize the damage they can do to their own body. Unfortunately, one of today's popular fitness trends is a failed experiment of the past brought back to life.

Waist Training is a thing again. And it needs to die.
