Insanity's Shaun T on Living in the Moment, Health vs. Thinness, and Sweat USA

If you're into fitness in any capacity -- even if it's just watching infomercials and bemoaning the fact that your abs are flab -- you're probably familiar with Shaun T. The man behind Insanity, Focus T-25, Hip Hop Abs and lots of other glorious tortures, he's been whipping people into Beachbody® shape for quite awhile.

And now, the man behind the madness is paying a visit to the 305 for Sweat USA, next weekend's fitness festival extraordinaire. He'll be leading some uber-intense workouts, answering audience questions and meeting and greeting. Ahead of his arrival, we chatted up Shaun on diet vs. exercise, the fact that even fitness gurus have weight fluctuations, and why he digs our tropical town.
