There has been an explosion in interest in extreme fitness: As medical professionals point to our culture’s growing obesity epidemic, programs such as Crossfit, P90X, Bootcamp, Spartan and Tough Mudder Races coupled with radical diets modeled after primal eating habits are gaining more followers. Christian versions such as The Daniel Plan have taken off led by Purpose Driven Life author Rick Warren. Why this new extreme take on fitness? What does this say about our culture’s view of health and wellness? Are these extreme programs hurting us or saving us?
