Not too long ago, I had a conversation with Tony Horton, creator of P90X. Without realizing it, Tony dropped a bombshell on me while we were discussing the common reasons people say they exercise, including a desire to live longer.
“Forget survival,” Tony said to me, “that’s a form of quiet desperation.”
I told him that I train to have joy, happiness, purpose and the ability to go do the things I love to do without having to worry about my body. Tony also cited secondary benefits of an active lifestyle as a prime motivator, stating that exercising and eating well makes him feel more curious in life. And then he dropped the bombshell.
