Actually, I would love to see Fitness and Exercise done as a sub-topic of Health, much as Boston is a natural subtopic of the Mass. state forum.

Fitness and exercise is a vital part of health, and even the USDA has recently put the whole food pyramid on a base of exercise, thanks largely to the work of Dr. Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Nutrition.

Also, from now unti the Spring, there will be much more discussion about fitness etc. as we arrive at the annual selling season for the latest exercise and diet gimmicks. We will see new exercise devices like last year's Abs Roller (or was that the year of the Rocker thing?) and new "miracle diet" pills that "melt fat" without having to change what you eat, and for which millions will be spent by the gullible. Of course, you never see such products two years in a row as they end up proving to be just the annual fad.

The only thing I might suggest is a sticky up top reminding people that the best exercise is free of cost, but if they have to get a machine, to use one that has a good history of success like a treadmill.

Putting it as a sub-topic of the "Health and Wellness" forum would be good. It all goes together so well.

The new forum has been created as a separate forum. In a month or so I'll post a poll on whether or not it should become a sub-forum of this forum.
