The amount of money being spent on health and fitness is incredible. A great example is United Healthcare spending millions of dollars on a new campus that features a multi-million dollar gym in which very few people actually use. Ron raises some interesting questions about even how society values working out. Has working out turned into a status symbol? "How nice is the gym you go to? What brand of running shoes do you wear?" Well Ron is sick of it! Fitness is about personal health and we all need to refocus on the core principle rather than the fluff on the side. Trust us, a $2500 treadmill is not a required to sweat.
As the potential health risks from sodium continue to be found, Ron is here is give Boston Market a stamp of approval.

With a recent study in hand, Ron discusses the cost of eating healthy in American today. While you might think you may be saving money today by eating your cheap fast food, in the long run, both your health and bank account will be worse off with the high-calorie fast food.
