The Fitness Industry is a Public Health Failure | THE RUSSELLS

From my new article for the CrossFit folks, on their blog, The Russells.

For the better part of the last 20 years, the fitness industry has engaged in multi-layered fraud that has insulted, lied to, misled, and confused countless Americans. Their malfeasance, like the most notorious pyramid marketing schemes, has many layers, each designed to influence a different audience, from consumers to employers to policymakers and the media. They have succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams as academics, ostensibly non-profit organizations, and fitness entrepreneurs have become rich and influential far in excess of the actual value they’ve added to America’s public health.
