I'm no Jack LaLanne

I would like to preface this article with a few facts about me, as an author. Although I consider myself an artist, and fancy myself as someone who is adept at the English language, I am not a trained writer. My bachelor’s degree from Ithaca College is in the arts, opera, to be specific, and not in a science or in a language discipline. There are people who are far better at both the science side of my profession, as well as communicating ideas about the science and its’ implications on topics as varied as injury and societal and economic byproducts of said science. That being said, my position as a trained musician, with great educational focus on Western Classical music, positions me with a keen historical perspective and detailed eye for timelines as it pertains to trends, adaptation, imitation, and advancement of ideas.

Like music prior to the media and technological explosions of the 20 century, the fitness industry moved glacially for the past millennia. That same sprint towards the “next big thing” in society as a whole has certainly had its effect on the fitness industry in the past century, with no sign of slowing in this one.

With so many trying to find faster, shinier, quicker, easier, more “modern” fixes, the foundations are being ignored far more often than not. Jack LaLanne had it right. A gym full of new machines, wonder drugs to control appetite and a myriad of other first world ailments of convenience cannot yield the results that a diet more akin to our grandparents (or great grandparents) and foundation strength moves like squats, sit ups, push-ups and pull-ups, these moves’ wide menu of variations, along with calisthenics will.

Coming from outside of the industry has allowed me to find my own way, though the path has meandered at times, to Renegade Training. I am 30 now, and in the best health of my life. The path has been cleared by Renegades like Jack LaLanne, John Davies, Hordon Health founder Marc Hordon, and myself. Follow us. Take your next step toward true health. Forsake the “next big thing” and lean on community, fellowship, using and moving your own body correctly to reach your goals. The Renegade Trainers at Hordon Health are waiting.
