In honor of the #KetoExerciseChallenge hosted by KetoCoach and GoodyBeats on Instagram, I thought this quote was pretty fitting.
To me, exercise isn’t anything specific or intensive. It’s moving the body every day in a way that’s sustainable.
That said, it’s always context-driven to the individual.
Personally, even tho I don’t compete, I still ride BMX at an elite level and in doing so want my training to protect me from potential injuries.
Therefore, my training is programmed and involves the gym.
The purpose of this challenge is to get you moving your body for 20 minutes a day in whatever setting you feel is best. That could mean the gym or it could mean riding a bike, jogging, hiking, climbing, a sport, yoga, Pilates, etc.
Bottom line, move your body in a way that serves your goals. If your goals require more conscious programming and training, then you may find yourself in the gym more than 20 minutes a day. If your goal is to move regularly and in a fun manner, the latter examples may be a suitable choice per your goal.
There no right or wrong when we’re talking Action that truly aligns with our goals.
It all comes down to perspective!

I believe nutrition is the majority of what manifest body composition one way or another.
That’s not to say we can’t get lean by training our asses off and eating poorly, because that was the case for me in the past.
What context lacks from that approach is internal health, which I learned the hard way after being accidentally diagnosed with a massive brain tumor during a concussion evaluation via an MRI.
We’re mislead to believe body composition improvements is all about eating less and moving more, energy balance. Calories in versus calories out, or calories stored vs burned for energy via dietary consumption and exercise.
No doubt, we have to intake calories (energy) accordingly to our goals but what’s rad is that we can shift our metabolism to running off of fat for fuel primarily, which allows ya to reach out body composition goals much more efficiently, effectively and enjoyably in my experience and my clients experience.
Exercise is the minority in this context when we talk about longevity and brian health. That said, exercise is a must in my opinion for overall health, strength (body and mind), and supplementing a healthy way of eating that’s aligned with the unfocused goals, which vary person to person.
This is a killer an workout to end a training session that has the abs engaged 100% and on fire to help them pop a bit more 💪🏽
