Who would kill for the perfect body? And what happens when a “hot” body turns up cold? In the new three-part series, KILLER BODS, Investigation Discovery explores what happens when fitness gurus, body building experts and aerobics instructors turn from their diets and instead, turn deadly.
This series profiles three cases that have more twists and turns than a Pilate’s class. Add a dash of sex, drugs and desire and it’s the perfect protein shake-up of unforgettable people in untenable situations. With New Year’s resolutions in full swing, ID takes a look at the darker side of the fitness industry. As people embark on new diets and fitness regimes, this series shows that even with the ideal physique, sometimes life is far from idyllic.
