The world of functional fitness is exploding. CrossFit, Weightlifting, Powerlifting, Strongman. More and more people are dedicating time to becoming stronger, faster, or more functional human beings.
Unfortunately, the rise of functional fitness has brought on a tidal wave of misinformation which, at best, leads to a waste of your time. At worst, it sets you up for injury and bad habits.
Everyone has goals and desires, regardless of what fitness they choose, yet most people don’t know HOW to go about that or WHERE to turn for quality information. We want you to stop wasting your time looking down the rabbit hole.
Our mission is simple: educate people to be smart about their training, whether your sport is CrossFit, weightlifting, Strongman, or powerlifting. Having a solid nutrition plan, learning how to recover properly, working weaknesses and improving movement.
Join us here at Athlete Daily, as we strive to bring you the very best in fitness coverage, backed by the most respected and knowledgeable minds in the world, all with the goal of building more informed athletes.
We created Athlete Daily, because we wanted MORE out of functional fitness coverage.
More information, more education, more journalistic standards. If these sports continue to grow, how can the media NOT grow with them? We are tired of seeing more and more people blindly following programs or jumping into competitor tracks under the notion that “this is how I need to train/eat/move if I want to reach my goals.”
Are there quality training programs out there? Smart nutrition plans? Sound advice from knowledgeable people- including high-level athletes? ABSOLUTELY.
And our goal at Athlete Daily is to seek them out and deliver them to you.
