P.S. No panic! If your are moderately working out on a regular basis, it actually acts like an antioxidant!

2. Crossfit coaches can get certified in two days.

How much knowledge do they really have? It doesn’t mean that your coach is that bad. But you might consider asking him some questions.

3. Running on a had surface damages your knees.

There is an idea that our bodies are not made for running on the pavements. There is an amortization system inside all our joints, including knees. The thing is, that we are more like off-road vehicles. We are not created to be running on hard surfaces.

You can always use a special running track tho. Or just run on the beach… Oh… Dreams…

4. Foot Fungus.

There is an actual reason why it is called the athlete’s foot.
