The Art of Fitness

The art of fitness is in the eye of the beholder.

It could mean art of the body moving or seeing the body in motion. It could mean how the body responds to exercise or seeing how it adapts to exercises. The art can be in a contraction or an exercise.  It could be the pose that you do for countless hours and feel then amazing that you worked so hard and achieved getting that particular pose. It could mean your favorite exercise. It could be just the simple art of the body. That's what I love about it. It is all how you perceive your art. 

To me it is all those things. Here are a few things to keep in mind when creating your fitness plan in order to reach your art of fitness that will sculpt your body into a piece of art.

The Art of Fitness is seeing your body evolve to be the best version of yourself. To continually grow to meet new goals and measurements. To go beyond those goals and realize, "I didn’t think my body could do this or look like this or, even better, feel like this." After understanding how the body works and responds to exercise, that is where the art of fitness is.
