New Media & the Big Ship of Fitness
Mind Pump host and fitness/wellness guru Sal DiStefano sits down with Spartan Race founder Joe De Sena to talk about new media, the state of the fitness industry and what you can do today to be stronger and healthier.
You may be fast at something, but are you efficient? Repetitive frequency of proper skills builds effective health and wellness regiments—getting you to your maximum potential. This week we have Sal DiStefano back on the podcast, discussing the platforms of “new media” and their role in shifting the “big ship” of fitness.
- Podcasts are like the new “Guttenberg Printing Press,” causing a new media communication revolution.
- Fitness versus Wellness: address mental, physical, and spiritual to solve the US health epidemic.
- Most chronic diseases can be solved by changes in lifestyle and attitude.
- Fitness and health are empowering.
- The internal “locus” of control is knowing you can do something for yourself to improve your situation.
- Speak your message in a way that empowers people.
- If you do one form of exercise, Sal says make it resistance training.
- Weights are the most modifiable form of resistance training.
- Change bad patterns by repeating good patterns frequently and often.
- Frequency is important when it comes to movement and health.
