Go Back to School on the Basics

As we gain more experience within our fitness practice, we often are drawn to complexity. We begin to believe training can’t be effective unless we’re using some fancy method or the latest fitness technology. We sub out old flexibility standbys for complex, pretzel-like poses and heavy doses of smashing our tight muscles. We elect to eliminate gluten and only eat starchy vegetables on days of extreme activity, and only within three hours of exercise.

Integrity is a word I use often in my work. I use it to talk about “being the same person in every situation,” being true to one’s values and system, and, the key for this section, “being one piece.”

“The body is one piece” has been a teaching truth of mine for decades, but it can be simplified to “Integrity.” As you train and pursue your goals, you must think of your body (mind and soul) as one piece. Your feet, even if you don’t realize it, are searching for clues from the ground to protect you from making life changing or life altering error. You inner ear is helping out the feet by providing feedback on what is upright and rest of your body is sharing information to help the decision making process. There are sharp toothed and sharp-clawed animals out there trying to eat you and all kinds of obstacles to overcome.
