Volunteered Hardship

In today’s world, we come up with activities to mimic our ancestral struggles. As humans, we’ve evolved to leverage tools and technology to answer the call of inconveniences. Instead of running from bears, we go for a jog or a luxuriously paved hike. Instead of hunting for food, we go to the grocery store. InsteadContinue reading “Volunteered Hardship”

The PPSC and Humility

There is something positively contagious about learning something new. An impulse to open up and share new knowledge with the world. Everyone should know about X, and there is no reason you should not apply X, immediately!

Why Weight Loss?

There was a morning you woke up, looked in the mirror and decided you didn’t like what you saw.

Not in the sense that he caught covid and nearly died. But the whole ‘Normal’ thing. Things have changed a bit from the beginning of theContinue reading “Racquetball + Fitness = Anthony”

I Run Because

Step outside and turn on your distance tracking/speed tracking app. Thumb through previous runs and set a target for today’s run. With the headphones blaring, you get started. TheContinue reading “I Run Because”

I Am Lost and Don’t Know What Exercise to Do! What Type of Exercise is Best for Me?

I sit down to talk to a prospective client. “What are your goals?”, I ask. “I just want to lose weight”, they say. “Why?”, I clap back. “I’ve always been overweight and I hate exercise.” They say. It’s a common obstacle. And every single day, someone will tell me how much they hate something, don’tContinue reading “I Am Lost and Don’t Know What Exercise to Do!

Where do I get my exercises from?

Not really anywhere special. Youtube. Instagram. Google. It comes from my brain and exploration of movement. Something that always bugged me is the inconsistencies in movement pattern nomenclature. And maybe that is where I need more growth. But when a Doctor tells me there is a deficit in metatarsal extension and flexion, that’s not goingContinue reading “Where do I get my exercises from?”
