I come in contact with many people who developed rhabdo (rhabdomyolysis) after working out in a gym. Sometimes this after working with a personal trainer and other times it's in an exercise class. Regardless, I believe this is occurring far more than people realize. Every day, I see people posting on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, talking about what happened to them. I will not let this continue. Rhabdo is the dirty secret of the fitness industry and the industry's failure to discuss it will come back to haunt them. In fact, I believe it already is.
In this video review, I share 5 reasons why I believe rhabdomyolysis is occurring in gyms around the world. If you are thinking of joining a gym or hiring a personal trainer, watch this video. It may save you time, suffering and maybe unexpected medical bills.

How To Stop Rhabdo From Occurring
The best defense against rhabdomyolysis is education. Listen to your body and don't be afraid to tell a fitness trainer you've had enough. Don't be afraid to walk out of an exercise class if you can't continue. Rhabdo is serious and can sometimes lead to long term problems. There is more to this condition than kidney failure. Please share this with others and help reduce future cases from happening.
