We also had on Lance Jensen from Jelly Belly's Sport Bean division. He talked about the latest innovation in jelly bean. This is what happens when you combine the great taste of Jelly Belly jelly bean with sports performance enhancing carbs and electrolytes. For a dollar a pack you will not find a better tasting way to keep you going on long bike rides or marathon runs. Forget the gels, go with the beans. For more information go to www.sportbeans.com or www.jellybelly.com
The Doctor also shared his tips on how to pick the right workout facilty or gym for you. Number 1, it has to be convenient, either on your way to work or one your way home. It shouldn't be more that 15 minutes from your work or home. Number 2, it's got to be clean. Number 3, it has to address your needs. And number 4, you will have to listen to the show to find out that one and all the rest of these great exercise tips.
The Fat Guy gave his Sarah Reinersten on the Amazing Race 10 on CBS update. She is the triathlete with the fake leg. She and Peter finished 1st in the second round and we will be tracking her progress each week on our show. Some of the other contestants are not happy Sarah gets to board planes first or uses her one leggedness to get cabs. But all is fair in love, war and the Amazing Race. Check out the Amazing Race website here http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race10/ and Sarah's website here www.iamsarah.org
Another highlight of this show was the Doctor sharing how he used to workout at the same gym as his hero Bruce Springsteen. That's right Dr. Fitness used to spot Bruce Sprinsteen, Clarence, Max and the rest of the E Street Band. I think he still has the sweaty bandana the Boss used when he bench pressed during his Born to Run Tour in the 80's.
