As a former English Major, I read a lot.  I read an article that had a quote which saidExercise has one spelling, but how it is applied is extremely diverse.” [i] The quote made me think of a point my Movement Specialist frequently makes, that one fitness approach may work well for one client but only partially work for another.  Any developed fitness routine needs to be tailored and customized for the individual.

I did so for the sake of sport and athleticism, as well as to hope for a single glimpse or sweat droplet that would lead me closer to understanding the likes of these select few.
