Fitness is full of meaningless platitudes, and I try to avoid trafficking in them as much as possible. So when I use social media to post some turn of phrase, I try my best to ensure that there's meat behind it. We have a chalkboard at Present Tense Fitness that I use to convey different messages. Sometimes it's just exposition like, "hey we're doing this thing on Sunday." Other times I just try to write something that's been on my mind. This week I changed the chalkboard to say "You're quite likely exponentially stronger than you perceive yourself to be." I posted the picture to … [Read more...] about On strength: Just Go and Learn To Be

There's no excuse for this, and the only reason you should walk away from an initial personal training session feeling destroyed is a … [Read more...] about Should You Be Scared to Train?

Anna: What preconceived notions did you have about yoga before you started practicing it? Jason: Probably the most important preconceived … [Read more...] about A Lifter and a Yogi Walk Into a Room (Part II)
