About The Episode

Fitness is important. We won’t bore you with cliches and quotes on how a fit body leads to a fit mind. However, we touched this topic because fitness is also very toxic, if not one of the most toxic topics out there. The reason is because people don’t understand what fitness is to them.

It means different things to different people. Fitness for an athlete and a programmer are bound to mean different things. Yet, they go to the same gym and get the same trainer. It’s a lot of hullabaloo without much consequence when it comes to fitness.

In this episode, we talk about our experiences and journeys towards finding our definitions for fitness. Spoiler alert! It means different things for all three of us.
