“thefitnessmonk” was created because fitnessmonk was already taken. Ha! But I actually like the “the” in place more now. I created the idea and name, out of a combination of my love for spiritual learning and my affinity for fitness. The idea is to keep things simple in an otherwise complex society infatuated with glamour magazines and trendy diets. I hope to instill wisdom in you to take the next step with your health while teaching everyone to care about their bodies and search for deeper meaning in life in general.
