Ecological Fitness is a blog of Dr. Canyon Steinzig RN PhD. It’s intention is the exploration and articulation of fitness in the most broad and open manner possible for me at the time that my thinking is articulated. Fitness, like health are not terms or concepts that can be easily or satisfactorily defined with simple swipes. Rather, they each require a deep exploration of the philosophical, emotional, intellectual and biological variables by which they are defined. I have chosen the term “ecological” because for me it best represents that sense of wholeness within which our lives are actually lived, and therefore “fitness” must too, dwell. For this reason the postings may contain thoughts as seemingly disparate as poetry, death, exercise and homework. The blog serves as a repository for content relevant to my life in all of its spheres.
