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.

We aren't doing enough.

What is heart disease, is "cardio" really treadmills and bikes, and how does it all work together? The answer may surprise you.

"Cardio" isn't what you think...

We have this idea that "cardio" is running and cycling. That it's treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. When we think of fitness we think "cardio" and "weights". Good news is... your idea of "cardio" is a bit off, and so is your idea of how to approach fitness in general.

But that's not today's topic.

Today we're talking about your heart, heart health, and how to keep your ticker strong and healthy. I'm taking time to shatter your idea of "cardio" because, well, I kind of have to get through that to get to the good stuff.

Heart disease is a (solvable) problem.

Heart disease, in its many forms, is the number one killer in the USA. The bad news is, we're not doing enough to stop it. With the way everyone in this country seems to be up in arms about gun control, you'd think they'd be even CRAZIER about stopping an even BIGGER killer. There are a number of factors that put you at risk for heart disease. Easiest way to protect from heart disease? Eliminate how many risk factors apply to you!

So what are those risk factors, and how do you protect against them? Welcome to episode 93 :)
