Physical Education or Sports Education?
From our childhood, we were trained to think… healthy is movement, movement is exercise, exercise is sport and so sports are healthy. Just take a quick look at your Physical Education Program as a youth. During your classes, what did you learn about the physical nature of your body? Did you learn Physical Education or Sports Education? Did you learn about your knees and how they work or how to kick a ball, bounce a ball or play a sport. When I asked several hundred clients of my fitness center the overwhelming answer was that they learned sports. A few of them told me that they did have a weight training class but even then it was more about using the equipment or performing prescribed moves, not about your physical body.
