fun

Life is too short for fitness to be so serious.
If you hate exercise and find it devoid of meaning and inspiration, I have some advice for you - stop.
Some days exercise is fun. And that's great. Some days exercise is not fun. And that's great, too. Here's why both sides are valuable.
In this episode, we talk to The Fitness Explorer Darryl Edwards about primal play, fun fitness, and meaningful movement.
It's all too easy to write the perfect session, only to wind up coaching kids who don't want to engage with your program today.
Let’s look at your goals, your schedule, and how you can arrange your training to have both fun and progress this season.
Serious athletes may see play as a waste of valuable training time, but is it really?
When children are asked what they think is important in life, play is often at the top of the list. So, when was the last time you played? I mean really played.
Even for the worst affected, there is hope for these clients if you are able to help them find the joy in training.
Physiologically, adults and kids are both made up of bone and muscle tissues, they have the same organs, and they need the same fuels. So, why is it you can’t train them both the same way?
Fitness testing is a snapshot of a point in time, but kids tend to develop non-linearly. How valid is fitness testing for kids and what should we be looking for?
If you can make training more enjoyable, children are more likely to accept it. The priority is keeping the child engaged, moving well, and wanting to come back and do more.
Don’t let the usual excuses hold you back from doing something truly fun and truly effective. Change your workouts and you’ll change your results. Have fun this week!
