Many affiliate exercise with stereotypical associations encouraged or identified by sciences and society. Science, gyms, disease risk, aesthetic appeal, health and wellness, medicine, and the like. Yet it is less than often that people look at exercise as achieving a higher level of thought. Yes, I am talking about exercise philosophy.

January 29, 2014 Thanks to everyone who donated their time, energy, talents and money we were able to raise enough funds to pay for our 501(c)(3) application!

Judgement. As personal trainers we're not supposed to judge our clients. We're supposed to be open minded as our clients tell us what brought them to us, what got them to their current weight and how we can help them live a healthier life. There are classes, trainings and certifications that cover this topic helping us to ask questions and listen to the client, rather than judging them.
The CrossCore® Lat Row Progression, or “Reverse 180”, begins as a single arm row, then progresses into a single arm row with hip rotation and then finally finishes as the “Reverse 180”.

But no matter your foot placement preference, you gotta PULL THE PIN!
