I’ve been immersed in Physical Culture for my entire life — both as an athlete, and as a coach/trainer — and this is something that I’ve found to be universally true: those who ultimately succeed in mastering their physical selves aren’t necessarily the most well-read, the most technically savvy, or scientifically astute. They don’t necessarily have greater willpower or focus than the next guy, nor are they repositories of Rain-Man-like facts and figures. No, these people (and I unabashedly place myself in this group) are, quite simply, masters of synthesis.
And the ability to synthesize the currently available science with the empirically, “in the field” proven, in addition to such matters as the particulars of a client’s current situation, is indeed a rare commodity.
So while information (books, videos, etc.) is ubiquitous, synthesis is extremely rare. It is exactly that quality, though, that precisely defines my wheelhouse.
And I can say the same about Michelle’s ability in the kitchen.
So by all means, devour all you can on the subject of Physical Culture. This blog is a great place to start, but it is by no means the one definitive, exhaustive source. If you still find yourself lost or muddled, then think about scheduling some time with Michelle or myself (or both, if you prefer). Our rates are $150/hour, either in-person or via Skype. For more extensive help, we can set up a specialized package, just for you that meets your needs, as well as your budget.
If you want to dive in a bit deeper, and explore more of an apprenticeship model, feel free to check out the Immersion Experience.
Either way, we’d love to help you attain you goals. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set an appointment now.
