Doxa: the official and unacknowledged systems of meaning by which we know culture.

Paradoxa: a neutral, non-committal, and open way of perceiving, reading, or experiencing that exists outside of common systems of culture and thinking.

What is PARADOXA? 

Paradoxa is a system and tool agnostic lens intended to simplify the process of understanding exercise-based movement. 

Fitness is a confusing and overly complicated industry, and Paradoxa offers a simple, clear set of principles readers can use to evaluate exercises, modalities, and tools to better serve their wants and needs.

Quite simply: Paradoxa is a ruleset for exercise, heavily influenced by game design. It is a free, open source resource that has been hacked from a huge variety of influences, from within the exercise and fitness world and without - there are methods culled from Olympic weightlifting, dance, gymnastics, physical rehabilitation, olde time strongman, and more.

What’s in PARADOXA?

  • The Principles of Intentional Movement: a set of guiding principles that streamline the process of physical training

  • In-depth breakdowns of how to structure exercise sessions and programs
  • Tables for understanding major movement patterns, effort rating, and training effects
  • A guide to common exercise equipment
  • Case studies to help contextualize information

Future Print Run & Expansions

Paradoxa has been printed! Find copies hereParadoxa in print

Paradoxa is intended to be a simple, accessible way to interact with exercise and movement. I hope to release future expansions on the idea with drills, games, tool-specific iterations, and more. It is also intended to be a collaborative project, so different interpretations of the idea are welcome.
