Hi, this is Brent Brookbush, health and
00:00:0400:00:07
and author of 'Fitness or Fiction: The Truth About Diet and Exercise'. In my
00:00:0700:00:12
years as an educator, I've realized that the fitness industry is an unregulated
00:00:1200:00:16
misinformation machine, and there's a cost to that. Every time somebody buys
00:00:1600:00:23
into a gimmick, a trend, or a fad that has no physiological possibility of working, that
00:00:2300:00:28
costs you time, money, and motivation. So I set out to bridge a gap. I set out to
00:00:2800:00:32
bridge the gap between the scientific community, and you, those who are
00:00:3200:00:36
embarking on a health and fitness lifestyle, or embarking on a career in
00:00:3600:00:41
health and wellness. I decided to create this book that was going to bust myths
00:00:4100:00:44
in a research-based way, that means I'm going to take the research from the
00:00:4400:00:49
scientific community and I'm going to communicate it in a way that's easy to
00:00:4900:00:54
read and fun to read, and that's where this book came from, Fitness or Fiction.
00:00:5400:00:58
So I'm taking all of these myths, and I'm going to bust them with research. I've tried to
00:00:5800:01:03
keep my opinions out of this book and give you just what the research has
00:01:0300:01:09
to say about each one of the major aspects of your fitness programming. So
00:01:0900:01:13
in this book you will get information on nutrition, cardio,
00:01:1300:01:18
flexibility, strength training, and there's even information in the back about how
00:01:1800:01:22
to create a more motivational program for yourself. I hope you enjoy this
00:01:2200:01:27
book, I hope you will help support me and help support the evidence-based
00:01:2700:01:31
mission that we're on, and get this out to your friends and family. I look
