Fitness in Philosophy

by

The Fitness in Philosophy podcast is dedicated to discussing the intersection between concepts in philosophy and their connection with fitness. Each episode we talk about a particular philosophical concept like autonomy, knowledge, virtue, or truth and discuss how that idea connects with coaching fitness, participating in fitness as an individual, and fitness culture at large. It’s hosted by OPEX Fitness Founder James Fitzgerald and Philosophy PhD/(soon to be) OPEX CCP Coach Robby Gustin.

In this episode of the Fitness in Philosophy podcast James and Robby turn their attention to the concept of progress and its connection with fitness.

In this episode, we discuss the following questions.

-What is progress?

-Is progress always good?

-Do certain activities that humans engage in involve progress while others do not?

-Can there be any true progress in fitness?

-Are all the attempts at progress in fitness ultimately folly?
