The StrongFit Equation: State vs. Action

At its core, the principles that underlie StrongFit are a system of learning. As the system continues to evolve, so do the structures that shape it and the concept of reinforcement learning presents a powerful allegory to how humans grow and adapt. Though easily buried by an abstract algorithm, the basic of Q-learning is this: success is found in moving beyond our mistakes and that our intention within the present matters. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be breaking down the Q-learning algorithm and what we can learn about human nature from this advancement in machine learning. Q-learning works by incrementally updating the expected values of actions in states based on the maximum possible re

StrongFit isn’t found in sandbags and sleds, neither is it even in the geekier content of torque chains or the central nervous system - first and foremost, StrongFit is a platform on how to lear

What is StrongFit

In the couple of years now I’ve known of StrongFit and movement master Julien Pineau, I’ve been privileged to sit front row to see the inspiring evolution of a culture.
