The Fitness industry has become obsessed with numbers and statistics. Calories burned, number of repetitions, and how far someone can go on the treadmill are some of the numbers people enjoy talking about. One missing element (which I think could get more people involved in exercise), is a deeper understanding of the mind muscle connection.
Exercise is good not only for your body, but also for your mental health. You will get more from a fitness training program if your mind is in it too and not just your body. For a moment let’s stop focusing on all the statistics that our technology driven devices have wrapped our minds around. Put down your fit bit for the day and instead just focus on the joy of the movement and not trying to track down a specific number.
