1994 Phil Kaplan attempted to call in a radio show to
dispute information being disseminated by a self-proclaimed
nutrition expert. The call screener refused to put the
call through and 30 minutes later Phil sat in Bob Morency's
office at the studio of WNN discussing hosting an "honest"
radio show. Phil promised to deliver The Fitness Truth,
and the following Saturday the Mind & Muscle Fitness
Hour was born.
1996 Clear Channel invited Phil to join their team and
The Mind &
Muscle Fitness Hour became a South Florida mainstay
on Miami's #1 AM station, WIOD. The show received critical
acclaim and scores of awards as it became the trusted
resource for health, fitness, and self-improvement.
Over 200 guests have appeared on the Mind & Muscle
Fitness Hour ranging from professional athletes to research
scientists, from biochemists to physicians, from bodybuilders
to motivators, from ordinary people seeking excellence
to superstars wanting to share some rare honesty.
2007 Phil took a hiatus from the show to spend time
with his then 3-year old daughter, and the "when
is the show coming back" questions and emails poured
in. In 2009 Destination Radio was born. As an independent
network, Destination Radio will broadcast fitness and
self-improvement talk 24/7. It will be available worldwide
on the internet, will feature select programs braodcast
on terrestrial radio in cities throughout the U.S.,
and will feature live and recorded programming allowing
for live guests, live phone calls, and limitless empowerment

Muscle Fitness Hour in the Archives, every show holding
as much value today as it had when it was first broadcast.
