To expand on my post from yesterday - the Harbor Park Voyage is broken down into three distinct phases:

I think this is a great time to talk about a major misconception in the health and fitness world: the fact that everyone wants to focus on fitness, but in reality this misconception is making things a lot harder for a lot of people. You might think back to a time when you worked out regularly and felt amazing. Just focusing on your workouts was enough to make a difference in your life. If that is true, I'm willing to bet that you were a lot younger and had a lot less responsibilities.

The fact of the matter is that as we age and as our plate of responsibilities grow, the same routine that worked when you were younger just doesn't cut it anymore. Your body is dealing with a lot more stress, a lot more hormonal imbalance, and an ever changing body. When you were younger, you didn't have to worry about these things, and working out did everything you needed it to. But now, it could be working against you.

With this understanding, we look back at our phases.
