Your Weight is Not Your Health — Stop Confusing the Two

Your Weight is Not Your Health — Stop Confusing the Two

A large part of the battle we face with our health is psychological. This has become more and more apparent to me the longer I work with and train people in these research studies. Understanding the underlying physiology is important, but it isn’t the whole picture. Our mindset dictates how we feel about ourselves and influences our physical health.

Throwing a donut on a baseball bat does shown not to improve bat speed. Game play in sports happen at full speed and replicating the motions of sport at anything less than game speed is putting the athletes at a disadvantage and creating unnecessary potential for injury.
