The Goals of Exercise
he responsibility of each generation should include mentoring the youth and if not summarised remarkably simply, improving our world during your lifetime. That general approach has typically been followed throughout history and though their have been a stumbling blocks, many corners of society have generally maintained a positive course of direction.
In this year of 2013, of infinite possibilities and a world remarkably connected, we as a society are far apart, self absorbed with our concerns and all too often fail to realise what is most important.
Over ten years ago I wrote ‘the one thing is the whole thing’ and as much I would see nodding heads in speaking engagements, I still don’t think the public understands that exercise was meant to improve the quality of life and not, as the industry does so very well, assist with creating an obsessive lifestyle. The marriage to the gymnasium, including the endless fitness classes and ‘must have’ specialised equipment, only serves to derail efforts for true long-term health and purely serves to fill the coffers of the industry.
This is what ‘we’, my generation, were supposed to promote, whether it was through sporting adventures or promoting exercise at the local community centre but all of ‘this’ was to lead to a better quality of life.
It should have never lead to expensive fitness classes, costly specialised equipment or promoting complicated dietary practices that promotes obsessive compulsive disorder but it did and fault lay firmly on my generation.
We inherited a completely different world but were derelict of our duties and led a generation astray and well off the path.
It is time now to reset the course, turn back and return to the former course which is ultimately why I am releasing Renegade X
I do this for you.
