Mariko Takahashi's Fitness Video

Friday, February 13, 2009 Posted by Peter Janiszewski, PhD
First off, I wanted to draw our readers' attention to an interesting and quite heated debate over some Canadian television shows focusing on what many consider to be unhealthy and inappropriate weight-loss and lifestyle strategies - "Bulging Brides" and "The Last 10lbs Bootcamp." In particular, I encourage all to check out the associated comments posted to get an idea of the different perspectives on the issue.

On a lighter note, please enjoy a segment of the oddest fitness video I have ever come across - Mariko Takahashi's Fitness Video. This will hopefully attenuate the triskaidekaphobias some of you may be experiencing on this Friday the 13th.

Despite her interesting physique and an odd choice of exercise class participants, Mariko even has some salient advice to give with regard to exercise: "The point is not only to lose weight." Well put, Mariko...

Have a romantic Valentine's day as well as a peaceful Family Day - we will resume posting on Tuesday of next week.
