The True Fitness Continuum. ⬆️⠀⠀
“For health and wellness, push folks towards vitality. There is a sweet spot for fitness at which point pushing it further leads to sickness and disease, NOT increased health. Competition comes with a high price of admission, where the rewards are honorable but are NOT connected to health.” - OPEX Founder James FitzGerald (@jfitzopex
Connecting intent to program design, whether that intent is elite fitness or vitality, is an essential role of the coach.⠀
