Ep 83: If Peleton Offended You, You’re an Idiot

Bold title I know. But it has to be because this past week in the world of health and fitness has demonstrated a new level of idiocy. It is even so much more than pure idiocy, it is bordering on outright stupidity.

I won’t stand idly by. I am not afraid to express my opinions. Someone has to reign in the crazy and speak some sanity!!!

EP 75: The Takedown Episode

Alright….here we go!!!

For my 75th episode I asked listeners to tell me what aspects of the health and fitness industry needed a good Coach Taylor thrashing….and the response was huge.
