Why Exercise?

If we cannot out-exercise a bad diet, then why exercise?

First, it’s impossible not to exercise. It is something we do all day long. Exercise is defined as “a physical activity that is done in order to become stronger and healthier.” You don’t have to go to the gym to exercise because every move you make has the opportunity to make you stronger and healthier.

Every time you sit, stand, reach, pull, push and walk, it improves your strength, flexibility and mobility. Even breathing correctly can work your core muscles better than any crunch or plank, and breathing is something you do at least 17,000 times a day. If you are moving everyday as you were designed, then you would never have to step foot in a gym unless you wanted to.

The key to exercise is moving as you were designed. It is my belief that 9 out 10 people do not move as they are designed, which means we do not sit, stand, reach, push, pull or walk correctly. The reason we are unable to move as we are designed is because, as a culture, we stopped moving the way we were designed. When we stopped moving, we started to break down physically. This physical breakdown in the feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips, groin, butt, back, abs, shoulders and neck affects our muscles, bones, joints and our internal systems.

VIVE Workout was created to correct this breakdown and get you moving as you were designed, so that every move can make you stronger and healthier. Moving as you were designed has TREMENDOUS health benefits. In fact, even moving incorrectly still has big health benefits. Walking (even incorrectly) for just 15 minutes a day has amazing health benefits as researched by Tim Church and his colleagues in the book, Move Yourself.

Why exercise? Why move every day? Because you were designed to move every day. Let’s return to the basics of exercise and experience how sitting, standing and walking correctly are the only exercises you’ll ever need to keep you physically healthy and strong.
