RAÚL GIL | Rethinking the assumptions that govern sport, fitness... and the world

RAÚL GIL | Rethinking the assumptions that govern sport, fitness... and the world

Fidias. Health, sport, education.

Fidias is a fitness center formed by a team of people passionate about education and movement. They have such innovative vision that it’s hard to explain. For this reason, I invite you to discover its methodology, masters, courses, blog and store... clicking on this link.

Last, but not least, thank them for the transfer of the image you’ll see in this post of “May the force, and patience, be with us…” and the gift of this t-shirt —which I love— that you can see on this episode.

I would summarize the way of seeing the world of Raúl and his Fidias team with Mishima’s quote: “Qui n’ha begut en tindrà set tota la vida.” (“Whoever has drunk of this will be thirsty all his life.”) He doesn’t give us a recipe, but he teaches us how to cook. He doesn’t explain us a methodology or tell us what exercises to do, but he teaches us how to build our and choose them. That’s why his way of thinking and seeing the world applies to everything and, while he explains us how he trains, we learn how to live.
