Using a skeptical lens we look at the trends, fads, research and misconceptions surrounding fitness and health practices and how they intersect with Physical Culture, self-actualization, and artistic expression. Musicians play their old, new and favorite music and discuss their health and fitness practices and health and fitness experts discuss current trends, practices, research and their efficacy, effectiveness and connection to our physical culture.

About Vincent Metzo, MA, LMT, CSCS
Vincent is the Dean of Advanced Personal Training at the Swedish Institute and the Director of Education for Kettlebell Concepts in New York City.
Vincent’s dance, theatre and acrobatics background lead him to choose exercise science and education as a career. During his time as an undergraduate at NYU Tisch School of the Arts studying acting Vincent’s interest in movement and acrobatics grew. This led him to study acrobatics and tumbling and to work with a strength coach to improve his tumbling and acrobatics. The results of a well-designed program led Vincent to decide to return to NYU to pursue a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and Fitness Management.
Between his undergraduate and graduate education, Vincent performed and recorded for many years with Flash Cooney and The Deans of Discipline and went on to sing with other local bands. He moved away from his creative pursuits for a while and while working in corporate fitness and receiving his Diploma and License as a Massage Therapist, he began teaching at the Swedish Institute where he developed and runs the Advanced Personal Training Program, the first personal training degree program in Manhattan. In addition to maintaining a private massage therapy practice and personal training business where he works with track and field athletes, Broadway dancers and fitness clients, Vincent is the creator of the FCES (Flexibility and Corrective Exercise Specialist), Focus on Flexibility and Periodization of Sports Massage workshops, As the director of education for Kettlebell Concepts, he authored the KBC Level 2 course called The KBC Metabolic and Neurologic Specialist Certificate (KBCMNS.)
Creativity has continued to influence Vincent’s pursuits in fitness and education. Despite having a career that is more science based than his initial education at Music and Art High School, Quintano’s School for Young Professionals, and Tisch School of the Arts or his actor father, illustrator mother and artist grandfather would have predicted, he has found that creativity has permeated all his endeavors. The PCMA show on Radio Free Brooklyn is an exploration of this not uncommon blending of science, fitness and creativity that occurs in creative individuals.
