What Amazon's Philosophy Has To Do With Your Health

“We are stubborn vision. We are flexible on details.” -Jeff Bezos

This philosophy of Jeff Bezos that drives the culture at Amazon is a huge reason behind their success. By keeping the overall vision in mind and not getting too caught up in the details they consistently grow as a business.

If you don’t feel you are living your healthiest potential, adopting this philosophy may just be the thing you’ve been missing.

Most of us easily fall into this trap, losing sight of our purpose and our why when it comes to our health.

If you want to be healthier, focus instead on being flexible about the details of how achieve it.

Is Your Movement Right for You?

Yeah, we said it.

At ABC, we spend most of our day helping people figure out not only how to move more, but move better.... We believe that any movement is better than no movement but also see it as our responsibility to highlight the differences between different forms of movement.

Depending on what your goals are not all movement is equal. For example, for heart and lung health riding a bicycle is a great choice. But if you are looking to avoid osteoarthritis in your hips, walking overground is where it's at!

We are passionate about helping you find the forms of movement that help you live your best life today and for years to come. Reach out to us with any questions you may have about whether or not your movement routines will help you meet your goals!
