It's impossible to know, unless you're Urban Meyer or one of his doctors, what exactly caused the two-time college football championship winner to see-saw decisions about his prestigious professional career and his family life.

I am definitely in favour of running outdoors-and preferably in a forest- than running on a treadmill in a closed space. Hereunder I am going to cite some of the reasons for this preference: 1. First of all I strongly believe that running on a treadmill has nothing to do with the real world conditions. There is no air resistance, the belt is doing part of your job, there are no negative slopes as well as slope alternations or physical obstacles. To my point of view people who are used at internal, artificial conditions will have a quite daunting task if it is to run outdoors. 2. I do not find it healthy at all to run in a closed space and breathe the carbon dioxide that other people emit.

The workout program includes 10 cardio and body weight resistance DVD workouts arranged over a total 63-day workout schedule.
