Pedometers Are Now Obsolete. BioTrainer Weight Loss System Works Better. Also Forget Video Games - Speed Stacks Rule This Xmas!
"The funniest weight loss and fitness radio show on the internet." Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy show.
On tonight's show, Doctor Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about two of the hottest gifts for the fitness lover or the weight loss wannabe in your family.
First we had on Patrick Cioffi, Jr from Bio Trainer. Bio Trainer is the new device by Premier Products that will make pedometers obsolete. You see Bio Trainer tracks all your physical activities and then calculates how many calories you burned. Each day you can use their online service and actually know if you gained or lost weight that day. Pretty amazing stuff. Denise Austin has signed on as their official spokesperson so you know it's good. Forget joining a gym this January, buy this product instead and save yourself a fortune. Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy listeners save even more. Just type in the promo code Dr Fitness on the order form and you save big bucks. Bio Trainer is having a special this Holiday season - if you sign up for a year of the online service for $100 they will throw in a free BioTrainer. That saves you about 50 bucks, right there. Check them out at www.biotrainerusa.com
We also had on Bob Fox the president of Speed Stacks. Speed Stacks is the must have gift for your kid this holiday season. Forget about Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii, get your kid a set of Speed Stacks and they will love it. The Fat Guys kid has stopped playing with his video game and plays with his Speed Stacks almost everyday. This is a sport that the whole family can play together. It's easy to learn and very addicting. The object is to take the Speed Stack cups and stack 3 pyramids with them then immediately unstack them. You have to do this as fast as you can without knocking them over. Sounds easy but when you have the pressure of the ticking clock things get interesting. Go to www.Youtube.com and search for "sport stacking" or "speed stacks" and you will be blown away at how fast these kids can do this. The sport is called Sport Stacking, it is catching on all over the world, it is even in PE classes around the country and the World Championships have been broadcasted on ESPN. Go to Bob's website www.SpeedStacks.com and check them out.
Dr. Fitness had some really good tips about how to Stick to your New Year's Resolution this January. We didn't get to all of them, but here a few of Dr. Fitness' tips...Number 1, make your goal a top 3 non-negotiable goal. Number 2, make it fun, and tell lots of people about your goal. And Number 3, get a partner to watch your back. They will be there to get you back on your program when you get frustrated or lose interest. There were a lot more detail from Dr. Fitness, so you will have to listen to the show to find out all the rest of these great tips. And I'm sure he'll post all the tips on his blog, even the ones we didn't get to tonight.
Another highlight of this show was Fat Guy talking about his new website www.GymsAreARipOff.com the Fat Guy thinks that gyms prey upon sedentary people and basically take their money knowing full well that they will stop going to the gym in a matter of weeks. So check out the Fat Guys "Gyms Are A Rip Off" blog and submit your gym horror story. It seems that people are frustrated by the broken promises their gym gave them when they joined and also they are usually disappointed when their hometown gym gets bought out by a large national corporate chain. Service usually goes downhill fast.
