Beauty of Naked
It’s Monday morning, and what better way to start the week with a little (or a lot) of naked flesh, but all in the best possible taste!
ESPN have recently published their Body Issue, the 7th time they have done it. This is an increasingly popular annual event where they celebrate the beauty of the naked body, assisted by a selection of wiling athletes from a wide range of sports.
As health and fitness experts, we are all interested in the human form, and it is refreshing to lose all the Nike and Reebok fitness clothes, and just appreciate the beauty of the human body, whatever age, sex or shape.
As functional training experts, to see bodies in the ideal shape and condition for a range of sports just emphasies that a functional body really can and should be all shapes and sizes dependant upon what it’s main function is.
In my PilatesEVO educations, I use the definition of functional training as “Functional training is about using knowledge of functional anatomy to select exercises that help prevent injuries and improve performance, but the movements have to make sense and be applicable to one’s life.”
