The Generalist Method

The Generalist Method

When it comes to fitness I consider myself a generalist. I’m not sure that’s really a proper term but it kind of sums up my approach to my own physical health. I run but I’m not a runner. I do some CrossFit but I’m not a CrossFitter. I lift weights but I’m not a bodybuilder. I do yoga but I’m not a yogi.

So what am I and do I have to be anything at all?

Spiritual Health and Naughties American Rock

Being spiritual is pretty fashionable at the moment and if you weren’t sure what being spiritual involved and only had social media as a reference you would probably come to the conclusion that it involved lots of yoga, meditation, veganism, constant self love, doing handstands in scenic spots and maybe growing a big beard. This isn’t what I think of as spiritual health, this is the Instagram version.  You don’t have to be spiritual to work on your spiritual health and just the term ‘spiritual’ tends to get people rolling their eyes and switching off.

My version is probably not what you think.

CrossFit - My thoughts on the 'Sport of Fitness'.

CrossFit - My thoughts on the 'Sport of Fitness'.

I’m a huge fan of CrossFit.  To be more specific, I’m a huge fan of CrossFit done well.  I’ll happily recommend the sport to anyone who is interested, and I think everyone should try it at least once.  I’m not a Crossfitter but I have done CrossFit and plenty of it.  I still train in a box and my coach is a CrossFit coach, so I do know what I’m talking about, I just don’t do it anymore. 

So why do I love it so much?
