Nuance and education

Love these conversations to bridge the gap between fitness and medicine. It’s long past due for there to be a clear bridge between the two, and conversations like these are the way to start and maintain an open and productive dialogue among all professionals, and members of the general population, along the health and wellness continuum. 🥰
