There’s a quote by Mr. Rogers where he challenges the idea that play is separate from learning. Fundamentally, playing is learning, he argued cogently.
Likewise, playing is training. There’s a level of seriousness which people begin to put in place for training in order to displace play/fun. What would be the point?
For youths especially, but all of us in general, we could coldly and emotionlessly sit there in front of a pulldown machine logging it in our workout journals. OR we could be playing ninja, climbing ropes to sneak into an imaginary world of play.
Part of the way that organized athletics and the fitness industry have failed the every man is by turning human movement into some sort of over-serious, unimaginative assembly line. Beyond the fundamentals of proper execution in structural lifts, the whole pursuit ought to be a stream-of-consciousness-like expression, not a “am I following Shape Magazine’s ab toner program?” cookie cutter checking-of-boxes.
Play. Make it fun. That IS training.
