Extreme Fitness
While obesity has become a major health problem here in the U-S, there are some notable exceptions.  Convention dictates that exercise is healthy for the body — builds muscle, boosts energy and burns fat — but it turns out there can also be a dangerous side to fitness.  In some extreme circumstances, exercising can be hazardous to your health.

Rio Funk Star
