HIITCAST ep 53 - What is Fitness?

Updated: Aug 1, 2019




Have you ever critically thought about what fitness means to you? ...Should that definition be different from person to person, or should exercise scientists and the fitness industry have a unified understanding?

Dr. Jenkins, PhD exercise physiologist, wrote an article in the CrossFit Journal (read it here: https://journal.crossfit.com/article/science-jenkins .... for real, READ IT) citing how many exercise science organizations have differing understandings, criteria and definitions of the simple word: "Fitness".

We discuss the CrossFit definition of fitness by Greg Glassman, and it's beautiful simplicity in its physics based math. And this leads me to a handful of lightbulb moments!

And we spend a lot of time talking about some of the amazing research coming out of his lab :)
