Putting the Fun in Functional Fitness

April 6, 2021

Discussions about exercise almost always center, specifically, on "fitness" in "how much weight can you lift?" or "How much weight have you lost?" or "How fast can you run?" While there is nothing wrong with having concrete fitness goals, in this conversation, certified physical trainer Erin Clubb goes deeper. She speaks about her own health journey. She talks about how movement is an integral part of our lives, and she emphasizes the importance of creating a practice and style of movement that allows us to maximize all that we want to do more of. Instead of making exercise an opportunity to shame ourselves, she discusses the value in simply setting goals that are in alignment with what is important to us as individuals. In short, she has a philosophy of putting the "fun" in "functional fitness."
