Thinking about the words health, sports and fitness creates images of exercise, athletics and motion. Along with those images, personal beliefs concerning ability, fear and competition impact physical performance. While some of these conditions cannot be changed, acquiring skills that emphasize the present moment and make use of natural patterns of motion can enhance capability.
Remarkable, professional, competitive, aggressive, frustrated, serious, recreational, middle-aged, uncoordinated and challenged — all are adjectives that depict different kinds of athletes. All of these athletes, however, on some level share the desire to be part of motion-based activity. It is desire, and the results of past emotional experiences, that motivate people to improve their outcomes.
