The Biggest Fallacy in Fitness with Rachel Garmon

The biggest fallacy in fitness, an error in reasoning about how we approach exercise, is that exercise and training are the same thing. In one viewpoint, exercise is a 'thing we do' for benefit and on the other side of this argument, 'training is a process'for an extensive period of time.

The dictionary defines fallacy as "a mistaken belief, especially one based on unsound argument". The biggest fallacy in fitness, an error in reasoning about how we approach exercise, is that exercise and training are the same thing. In one viewpoint, exercise is a 'thing we do' for benefit and on the other side of this argument, 'training is a process'for an extensive period of time. However, the issue is that we use the terms interchangeably. How can we be so specific about our goals, but not identify what is required to do so?

In this episode, hang out with Jenn and Rachel as they describe how most exercisers are wasting their time with 'clock-in, clock-out' exercise routines. The premise that repetitive exercise alone is a large variable in creating a cascade of wellness benefits is a big misconception. This is also the mindset of the professional exerciser. The professional exerciser will lack focus, increase their chance of injury and burnout, and worst of all, they will waste their time on futile exercise.

If you desire a more transformational exercise experience and are tired of a mundane approach, let us know! A great first step to change is admitting that you are ready for it.

Have a strong week!
