Fitness is my passion and my profession.
My own fitness journey began in the 1980’s when I was in high school. At home I did Jane Fonda’s workout video. At school I signed up for a gym class to learn how to lift weights. I also joined the neighborhood gym to take aerobics classes. Since then I’ve explored many fitness topics from a variety of perspectives.
I’ve been a gym member and I’ve been the manager. I’ve been trained and I’ve been the trainer. I’ve been an athlete as well as a coach. I’ve been a student of fitness and I’ve been the teacher. Throughout my career one constant has been the power of the fitness myth. These stubborn myths are a major source of misinformation and they have shown resistance to debunking that would make bacteria jealous.
I believe people are tired of the fitness mythology and ready for the truth. Your fitness results depend on the choices you make every day – from your annual resolutions to how you spend your precious exercise time. Those decisions are only as good as the information you consider.
Consumers are faced with a constantly changing barrage of fitness recommendations, promises and infamous “scientific breakthroughs,” but the distinction between reliable and unreliable information remains a mystery instead of a priority.
My objective is to help you find and use only the best information. I believe knowledge determines both attitude and action and I’ve written several eBooks to help you navigate your own fitness journey: The Fitness Paradox (i.e. the problem) and Fitness Education for Consumers (i.e. the solution).
