Our first guest was one of New Jersey's favorite personal trainers and authors...Kevin Valuzzi. His new book "Stop The Fitness Confusion" taps into the wisdom of over 50 top trainers and fitness experts to get their best fitness tips. Kevin says that a suprisingly consistent methodology came up amongst all the trainers. A circuit-style interval training is highly recommended for people who are crunched for time and are looking to burn more calories faster. He said this kind of work out allows you to burn calories all day long. For more information about Kevin, please go to his website www.thefitnessleader.com and to buy his new book go to www.stopthefitnessconfusion.com
Next up we had on Kevin Betts, the President of Fitness Together, the undisputed leader in the franchised personal fitness trainer business. There are over 600 Fitness Together franchises. Their philosophy is 1 Client 1 Trainer 1 Goal. At a Fitness Together studio the client works one on one with their trainer in a well appointed suite that features all the equipment anyone would need to get a full body workout.

Next we had on Tina Vindum, outdoor fitness expert and host of the radio show Outdoor Fitness on the Lime channel 114 on Sirius Satellite Radio. Tina talked about the importance of training outdoors in order to get one with nature and use the surroundings around you to get a wickedly effective workout. In San Francisco she does outdoor classes with her clients first thing in the morning. They might be doing pull ups on a tree branch one minute and stretching on a parking meter the next. Each workout is different and each is sure to kick your butt. Tina stressed that exercising outdoors is an almost spiritual experience. She says she has had clients get overcome with emotions as they workout. Picture yourself at the crack of dawn, surrounded by the glow of the rising sun, running through the woods with the skyline of San Francisco in front of you as sweat is pouring off your body. Pretty cool huh? For more information about Tina, her only accredited Outdoor Training classes and her radio show please go the her website www.outdoorfitness.com
Dr Fitness chimed in with his weight loss tips. And this week they were all about the importance of eating 30 grams of fiber each day. He listed some of the best fiber rich foods and they included: legumes, brans cereals and some fruits and veggies that will surprise you. Be sure to check that out.
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by over 30 people who are interested in what he eats each day. Who would have thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's eating exploits on Twitter. Food journals are great ways to lose weight and the Fat Guy is always trying anything in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So take a peek into his food diary. You never know what he'll write. Somehow he can stay compliant to writing on Twitter but he can't fit in exercise each day. That's right, moments after he eats something the Fat Guy Twitters about it and you can follow him so that one day if you try real hard you too can look like the Fat Guy.

Remember we are now on every morning in Michigan. On radio station WKNW. They asked us to create a Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy "Wellness Minute." So now a new Wellness Minute runs on that station each morning at around 7:40. Each Wellness Minute features the doctor and I going over 5 of his best tips on a given wellness subject like: losing weight, getting in shape, living a healthy lifestyle, etc. We're working on ways to make those tips available to all our listeners. If you have a favorite radio station that you think would benefit from our Wellness Minutes send them an email telling them about it and who knows maybe you can hear us everyday too.
Also once again, I need you to please do me a favor. My kid Max has been doing a radio show called "Kid Power Radio" for awhile now and you should check it out. Tiffany from The Daily Candy called his family friendly radio show "Hilarious!" This is a great show for your kids. It is kind of like a kids version of David Spade's "Showbiz Show" on Comedy Central or Entertainment Tonight mixed in with a little Wayne's World. Max recaps the week in entertainment and gives his take and review of what he liked and didn't like on TV, at the movies, video games, in books and in music and even restaurant reviews. Please go to his site and download the show for your kid. He had a big show recently he interviewed Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. And if your kid sends Max an email he'll read it on the air next week. The show can be found at www.kidpowerradio.com and you can email Max at RadioStarMax at Yahoo.com.
