One Moment at a Time: How Fitness Happens

“Things don’t just happen!”

This was the response I would hear from my father when I used to exclaim, “It just happened!” as an excuse for having done something wacky that I immediately knew would get me in trouble.

Deliberation and Decision

Whatever disastrous event I was responsible for that precipitated his stern rebuke, it all really started when I made a decision to act on my idea, didn’t it?

About The Author

Steven Siemons ACSM CPT's picture

As a lifelong fitness enthusiast and armchair philosopher (BA in Social Science, UC Irvine), Steven communicates his passion for health and wellness with an offbeat slant. It's a lifestyle, he will insist; and fitness is really a journey to find what fits--for you. His personal fitness journey has primarily centered on resistance training for more than fifty years. An intense three-year exposure to Shotokan Karate under Sensei Ray Dalke and Sensei Edmond Otis in Southern California during his thirties (he is now 65, since you're wondering) had a significant impact on his appreciation for the martial arts as fitness disciplines. It is his sincere hope that you will find insight, inspiration, and knowledge from the ideas he sends your way.
