There is a difference between exercise and training….
Exercise is a means to maintain, recover or improve health and for most people comprises a series of movements performed to burn a few extra calories. This allows us to offset some of our luxurious life style choices….like that cream cake or the bottle of bubbly.
Exercise is great, I love it. My active lifestyle allows my decadent moments without too much bad juju.
Training is a different monster.
If you are training then you have a performance related purpose. A defined goal that requires you to practice a skill.
Take a look around at your average gym member or leisure runner and then take at look at those that have performance related goals; those that train to increase a skill.
It is skill that sets apart the bodies that exercise and those that train.
Do you train or do you simply exercise?
