It’s important. ⁣ ⁣ To quote Louie Simmons;⁣ ‘Your pyramid is only as tall as its base.’ ⁣ ⁣ He discusses this point in terms of general physical conditioning. ⁣ ⁣ But it holds very true for your intellect too. ⁣ ⁣ We pride ourselves on having a reasonable understanding of health, exercise, human movement and performance. ⁣ ⁣ We are no experts by any stretch of the imagination. And we don’t pretend to be. We are well aware that we are building our foundation, the base of our pyramid. ⁣ ⁣ But we do feel like we combine knowledge and experience reasonably well. ⁣ ⁣ One without the other is an incomplete package. ⁣ ⁣ He who is educated but has no experience has no ‘real world’ cases. Life is not like a book. Things do mess up and often don’t go according to plan. ⁣ ⁣ He who has experience but lacks education may fail to apply critical thought to situations (the ‘this is what we’ve always done mantra’). Having a deep, theoretical understanding of underlying principals (anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology etc.) can help shape decision making when things don’t go according to plan. ⁣ ⁣ In a world where becoming a fitness/health/exercise ‘expert’ is becoming increasingly easy...⁣ ⁣ - Short courses - 12 weeks to learn exercise, movement, the human body, physical assessments, nutrition concepts, psychology (to name a few) YA KIDDING ⁣ - Insta ‘influencers’ - having a decent rig and a camera now allows you to give training/nutrition advice to the people that follow you? ⁣ ⁣ ... it can be a difficult task to sift through the rubbish that’s out there. ⁣ ⁣ Be informed when making a decision regarding your health, performance and/or longevity. Your body and mind will thank you for it. ⁣ ⁣ #one22
