Movement isn't only affecting your arms, legs and abs; through a process called mechanotransduction, movement influences the behavior of your cells. Similarly, your movements don't only affect your body; they also influence other bodies, including the body upon which we all reside. This perspective is called movement ecology.

The key to increasing our personal movement lies in understanding how movement works and expanding our thoughts and actions away from exercise and towards a movement-rich life.
