Philosophy of Playout

We can find any excuse not to exercise. No time. No equipment. No gym. No motivation! Exercise was never meant to be a chore. As children, we love to exercise—run, climb, skip, jump—and we called it PLAY because it was fun. So, why did we stop playing?

 

As teens and adults, many of us view exercise as a means to an end: a workout. The sports we played as children no longer fit into our busy schedules.  We don’t have a simple way to get exercise information. Fun has become secondary, and results, primary. But without fun, we have no motivation and often give up and miss out on our goals.  That's why we're combining play with a regular exercise routine to make it fun, competitive, and social! With Playout, we can achieve the results we’ve always wanted in less time, while enjoying the process!

Let's stop working out, and start Playing Out!


Precepts of Play

  1. Play for yourself. Don’t get caught up in becoming the best or quit because you think you aren’t good enough. Compete with yourself, and you will get better.
  2. Enjoy the journey. The game is what’s important, not the result. Take advantage of the time you’ve been given, and find joy in every moment.
  3. Believe in yourself. To make mistakes is to be human. Revel in the slips, falls, and scars, and don’t give up. If you are willing to learn, failure will be your best teacher.
  4. Be fearless. Play at your own pace, play on your own path, but push yourself, and don’t be afraid to try something new. A truly great Player will find the delicate balance between recklessness and cowardice to walk the fine line of courage.
  5. The best time to play is NOW.

Life is a game. Play it out!
