Who Is The Everyday Athlete?

In the U.S.A. and U.K., approximately 60% of all adults aged between 18-64 are completely sedentary. They do no intended exercise, have completely inactive jobs and spend more than 14 hours per day sitting on various types of chairs (sofas, office chairs, dining chairs, car seats, etc.). A further 20% of all adults do a little bit of daily movement, but not enough to maintain health.

The remaining 20% of all adults regularly exercise to an adequate degree. What does adequate mean? This differs slightly from one government organization to another, but generally, it’s quite a small amount of regular exercise. By this we mean, 30 minutes of brisk walking or jogging per day and some regular resistance training to help with strength and bone density.

According to the Oxford English dictionary, the definition of an athlete is, “A person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise.”

“The Everyday Athlete is a person who is proficient in their everyday physical activity and exercise regimen.”

If You Have A Body, You’re An Everyday Athlete.

The Everyday Athlete is someone who cares about his or her health enough to do something about it and has reached at least a very basic level of fitness. The Everyday Athlete is someone who regularly partakes in purposeful physical activity and/or has an active lifestyle and job. The Everyday Athlete has a degree of knowledge about how he or she should carry out an exercise regime.

The Everyday Athlete wants to be a: –

  • Better Mom
  • Better Dad
  • Better Golfer
  • Better Cyclist
  • Better Runner
  • Better Boss
  • Better Human Being

The Everyday Athlete wants to unleash their inner athlete and Strength Matters provides the system, process and blueprint to help you do just that.
