Thinking about movement…

Fitness and health are not equivalent. You can be fit for a particular athletic pursuit, but that doesn’t mean you are a healthier person: high performance in a narrow category often comes at great costs (such as joint damage and muscle imbalances) In short, what we are doing with our bodies most of the time thoroughly trumps how hard we may be capable of working out for a small portion of our day. True health is about thinking of your movement in terms of being the human first and a specialist second. Improve your movement vocabulary generally. Do not box “exercise” and “non-exercising” time. Movement not exercise determines our shape and mobility.
