We dive deep into health and fitness on this one with Jonathan Di Pierro, a Montreal native, now based in Ottawa. Owner of not one but TWO gyms, in Opex Ottawa and Crossfit Actus. Opex is all about personalized fitness, and joining a community environment with a custom program, and Crossfit is all about "constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad time and modal domains" and also very much noted for a community feel in each gym. We discuss the differences in the two, and who would be more suited for each.
We also dissect the difference between working out by having fun, and working out as a chore, and which one is better for your progress (guess what; fun is always better!) We also discuss his awesome story about travelling Europe and Asia, and then following his (now) wife to Mexico and then competing in South American Crossfit Regionals.
Really an awesome chat with a really nice guy.
If you have any health and fitness questions, reach out to Jonathan, or myself, and we'll get you the responses.
