Description:

The National Fitness Junto (NFJ) - www.nationalfitnessjunto.org - is a club of mutual improvement for health, wellness, fitness, nutrition, therapy, and sports business professionals. Members gather to exchange knowledge and ideas, debate issues, and support and improve all the practices and businesses that the NFJ can influence. Investigating and discussing a wide range of topics to further understanding, promote curiosity, spur creativity and improve their standards of practice have been the goal of many of their collaborations. An enthusiasm to invite other open-minded professionals to join them in this pursuit is what inspired the creation of The NFJ.

Episodes

020 – Inspiring

8/12/2017
More
What’s the difference between motivation and inspiration? How does enlightenment fit in?… if at all. Eliciting awe, humility, gratitude, and rage are some of the many tools utilized to inspire. Sources of inspiration seem to come from anywhere and, as usual, everyone is inspired differently. Inspiring Meeting Date: 4 / 20 / 16 Attending Members: Patrick Rahm - Tim Ridley

Duration: 01:21:41


019 – Self Preservation

8/12/2017
More
A majority of us want to preserve our health. But there’s more to the “self” then just our health. Can our identity interfere with our ability to improve and change? Our vague, often inaccurate perceptions of pain, risk and time muddy the waters. How do we coach people through these perceptions? Can people change how they perceive themselves?

Power, strength, and size are often used interchangeably. How does power differ? Are the intentions behind training strength and power the same? Which exercises and intensities are utilized?

017 – The Back Squat

6/24/2017

Achieving the "correct" depth in the back squat exercise continues to be debated; more of that here. Babies, basketball players, power-lifters, and Crossfit all seem to complicate the issue.
