The difference between WORKING OUT and TRAINING

Exercise, as it relates to physical activity, is defined as "a particular movement or series of movements done to become stronger and healthier." In 2015, over 54 million people enrolled in fitness centers in the U.S., and there are around 34,000 membership-based exercise facilities in the U.S.  Despite that, people aren't seeing positive results; our society as a whole is getting less healthy!  Obesity and rates of lifestyle-related diseases are increasing despite the popularity of 'exercising.'  Why is this?

At what intensity should I train?!?!

For the performance-minded athlete, one of the most important aspects of any training program is training at YOUR proper intensities. The science as to why training within the constraints of your physiological zones is covered in a different post, the take-home message is that whether you are working one-on-one with a coach or following a plan from a book, finding your training zones are critical to optimizing any training program. In addition,  the method by which you find your zones can either set yourself up for success or lead to a path of overtraining and failure.

Measure to Excel

In the January 26-27, 2014 Wall Street Journal, Bill Gates wrote an article titled, "My Plan To Fix The World’s Biggest Problems – Measure Them!"  The take home message was:  without feedback from precise measurements, any progress is destined to be “rare and erratic.”  Gates writes, “You can achieve incredible progress if you set a clear goal and find a measure that will drive progress toward that goal.”
