From Olympic weightlifting to steady state aerobic training, I like to explore every niche of fitness and exercise that I can, and objectively analyze the pros and cons of each. This makes your decision on which type of exercise to pursue that much easier.
Contemporary research on nutrition pours into the field daily. I like to take the research and simplify it to the best of my ability, and make it easily digestible (no pun intended) for those seeking to reap the benefits of these new discoveries in science.
Identifying lifestyle factors that may influence one's health, whether they are positive or negative, always serves as a strong predictor for future outcomes of successful changes in health. I dissect the subtle things that can help/hinder one's progress. This allows for your progress to be jump-started by small, but crucial changes in daily life.
My name is Mike Wernert and my philosophy on life is to learn as much as possible, and convey the information that I learn into a format that is accessible to anyone and everyone that wishes to improve the quality of his or her own life.
My my areas of expertise are fitness, exercise, nutrition and healthy lifestyle, although some discussions may explore topics outside of my niche(s). I take time to research, dissect, analyze and condense information into reasonable chunks so that anyone who reads my thoughts and topic summaries will leave with a better understanding of the world in which we live.
My hope is that I learn and understand as much as I can, and communicate this knowledge to any ears willing to hear it, and that they ultimately apply this information in a way that allows their life to become better, as well as those around them.
I will leave you with a quote to summarize my view on lifelong learning:
