What is Physical Fitness?

Physical fitness is a state of health and well-being and, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports, occupations and daily activities. This is another field that encompasses a variety of modalities, training styles, and the like and is achieved through nutrition, specific exercises, sleep, etc. 

Fitness Trainers must learn anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, exercise programming, nutrition (including diet and supplementation), postural assessment, and a variety of other things. 

When it comes to my style and what I advocate, I focus on a few things. My main area of work is Massage therapy but I do offer guidance on overall fitness and exercise:

  • Are you functional and functionally fit?
  • Do you look and feel good?
  • Are you free from unhealthy food addictions or lifestyle habits?

I want people to be functional in their daily lives. I want them to have good balance and posture, be able to lift and move things, be able to do the activities they like (including sport-specific goals), and all-in-all be able to be a strong, well-rounded, physically fit person.

Lastly, I help people adopt and change their eating habits and free them from food addictions from such things as sugar or other potentially unhealthy foods.
