{#TransparentTuesday} Why do you move your body"






Last weekend I attended an all women?s MovNat certification workshop. I met a bunch of amazing women, and had a bunch of fascinating conversations. What?s on my mind today is the result of some of those conversations, with a special shout-out to Jen Sinkler, who is truly as smart and funny in real life as you would guess from social media.
What is the purpose of physical movement"
According to mainstream women?s fitness culture, the purpose of movement is basically toburn calories, burn fat, lose weight, fix your flaws, get smaller, be more attractive, take up less space, be deserving of love and belonging, and earn your worth.
Obviously, I?m not down with any of that. Like, at ALL.
That?s why I liked MovNat?s counter-culture philosophy. For them, the purpose of movement is to honor and strengthen the body you were born in, the way we were designed to. It?s a step in the right direction at least, since it rejects all the mainstream physique BS.
This weekend got me thinking about how there are so many different subsections of the fitness/movement industries, and how each one has a unique philosophy about why we should move that way. Each one assigns a unique purpose to physical movement.
Let?s look at a few examples.

Most of the fitness industry is designed to teach people how to manage and improve their weight, their health, and their aesthetics. Some will use terms like ?elongate,? while others use terms like ?shred,? but it?s more or less the same philosophy: Move your body to improve your weight, health, and physique.

Of course there are some niches who focus mainly on improving performance (strength, endurance, speed, mobility, or agility). These include crossfit, powerlifting, triathlon training, gymnastics, golf, and pretty much every other sport ever. The philosophy behind performance-focused training is something like: Move your body to perform, or Move your body to win.

In my coaching circles, movement is often designed to ?empower? women, and make them feel confident. How this works and what this means is usually pretty vague and enigmatic though. I hear explanations ranging from being more confident because you look good (back to aesthetics), to being more confident because you?re strong enough to accomplish a certain task or protect yourself (performing/winning), to being more confident because you learned that with hard work, you can accomplish things you never would have imagined (promoting a growth mindset).

Either way, there is an undeniable thread of movement philosophy that says: Move your body to build confidence.

Some segments of the movement world focus on mobility and safety, from MovNat to Ido Portal to Kelly Starret. These are built around the idea that learning how to move properly can help you offset cultural movement deficits, age well, and optimize your life without getting hurt. My dear friends Hunter Cook and Kate Galliett of Fit For Real Life both populate this camp, and the boiled-down philosophy i...
