Originally, Fitness and Fallacies was a book written by Rick DeLorme M.A.,M.S. and Fred Stransky Ph. D. The book was copyrighted in 1990 and was published by the Kendal Hunt Publishing Company. It was used in as a supplemental text in fitness and health science classes at universities around the country.
Fitness and Fallacies was written to address the prevalence of fitness fallacies promoted to the public by many sources. It was written in the hope that readers would better understand what constitutes an effective fitness program.
The book has been out of print for some time and no copies are currently available for sale. Because many fallacies of exercise are still widely promoted in public forums, some of the concepts originally discussed in Fitness and Fallacies are presented on this site as a public service.
Some used copies may be available on Amazon.com.
