Training (and Retaining) Beginners

by Tom Purvis, PT


When was the last time you were a beginner at anything? Especially something that you believed you'd never be good at or it's just not your thing. What misinformation is being perpetuated by the extreme fitness television shows today? If the goal is to get the other 80% exercising, maybe we had better stop thinking like us; people who LIKE to exercise, and start thinking like those who don't! Explore the minds and bodies of non-exercisers and strategies for how we might best approach this population, to not only create an ideal and comfortable environment for physical change, but to inspire beginners to stay for life!
