Before we jump into the details of the course, I want to share three things that I believe:
Everyone can enjoy exercise
It's common to associate exercise with discomfort, dread, failure, or guilt. We force ourselves to grind through activities we feel we have to do. We "embrace the suck" and "push down the pain."
It doesn't have to be like this. We are born to move. We instinctively roll, crawl, climb, and run. We joyfully push the edge of our physical capacities. We can reconnect with this innate desire for movement. We can embrace an embodied approach and rediscover the joy of exercise.
Effective exercise can be simple
Most of the fitness industry is designed to make things seem complicated with endless activities to do and countless concepts to learn. It's overwhelming and leads us to doubt ourselves. We look to "experts" to just tell us what to do.
In reality, the foundational principles of effective exercise are simple. We can all understand and embrace them. We can each design an approach for ourselves that aligns with our goals, intentions, and life.
Exercise is a lifelong journey
Many people are hunting for the optimal workout program while others are struggling to get started. In most cases, there's a sense of destination we're striving to reach as quickly as possible.
Yet, there's no perfect routine for all people at all times. There's no magical fitness paradise to rush to. It's an infinite game we have to keep playing. The key is to get started. No matter where you begin it will evolve and ripple across your life in ways you cannot imagine.
