Podcast Episode 024: Debunking Exercise Myths with Colleen Cannon

April 6, 2015 | 35 minutes, 29 seconds

Are you frustrated with your workouts? Are you feeling too exhausted to exercise or go to a yoga class? Are you not losing the weight or getting the benefits you hoped for? Perhaps you are pushing too hard! Studies show that the more intense the workout, the less fat you burn – really! While I thought the “no pain, no gain” proverb died 20 years ago when I wrote Body, Mind and Sport, it is back, and folks are exercising in more extreme ways than ever.

Join me in this rare, extremely lively and informative interview with professional triathlete and former World and two-time National Triathlon Champion, Colleen Cannon, where we cover the risks of extreme and excessive exercise, how to perform at a high level with less effort and more joy, and achieve a much happier, healthier and longer life.
