Collected Fitness Wisdom #42

Why do so many people feel the need to pick one thing as the be-all, end-all of exercise? Kettlebells, suspension trainers, dumbbells, sandbags, barbells, bodyweight exercises, resistance bands- they're all tools. You wouldn't own a tool box with just a hammer, why would you want to consistently work out just one way?

~ John Romaniello

Look at your goals.

Look at your behavior.

Does your behavior match your goals?

~ Dan John

Once upon a time there was no such thing as organic. It’s a relatively new construct, born of our time of industrialized farming. There’s something really wrong in a world where we have to give plain old good food a special label. When I was growing up there was no such thing as organic because all vegetables were organic i.e. GM free and free from nasty toxins. It’s a sad testament to our times that we need this labeling to help safeguard our health.

~ Susan Kobrin

We've become a nation of wimps. Too many people don't bother or are afraid of exercising hard. But intensity is probably the only way to lose weight with exercise.

~ David Neiman, professor in the Human Performance Laboratory at Appalachian State University
