One of the four key areas we focus on at Core Performance is "movement." Along with mindset, nutrition and recovery, bringing more—and better—movement into your daily routine will ultimately help you feel better, look better, and move more freely with less pain and greater vitality.

When contributor writer Joe Kita wore a pedometer for the first time, he realized that his workout was not enough, and, worse, his concept of fitness was all wrong. Despite having run marathons and biked centuries, the work-at-home writer was barely moving.

In the five-part series that follows, Kita consults with top fitness experts to find out what it really means to be fit and active. His advice goes far beyond the usual clichés of taking the stairs (still important) and results in a practical, actionable strategy to live better. Read on to see how Kita learned to change a lifestyle that was turning him sedentary, and how you can, too.
