New Content Update

Posted by Ross Harrison, CSCS, NSCA-CPT on March 25, 2016

After taking a number of years off from my blog to help raise my two kids, I am finally back to creating new content. I have written a couple articles and also made five new videos, revived my newsletter, and created a health and fitness Facebook page.

For now my new articles have only been sent to my newsletter subscribers, but I will probably post them eventually. If you would like to be added to my newsletter, please let me know. Just send me an email at ross@precisionhealth-fitness.com and I will get you added to my newsletter list.

For now, two of my videos can be seen on my website home page at www.precisionhealth-fitness.com/ and the exercise videos can be seen at www.precisionhealth-fitness.com/exercise-videos.html.

All the videos are also posted on my new Precision Health & Fitness Facebook page.

There will be much more to come in the future, but for now, please let me know if there are any topics you want me to cover in the near future. Also, I encourage everyone to visit my Facebook page and post your thoughts about anything related to health or fitness. Feedback/advice is always appreciated as well. My intent is to create an interactive community to discuss issues related to exercise, nutrition, psychology, and anything else that will help people reach their goals.

Blog Update: Future Directions

Posted by Ross Harrison, CSCS, NSCA-CPT on September 8, 2010

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has been visiting my blog and giving me feedback on my posts. I appreciate the time you spend reading my information and I hope it is useful to you. I started this blog about 10½ month ago and I have been pretty happy with it so far, but things are going to change in the near future.

I am still going to write new articles, but my blog will probably not not be the first place my articles will be posted. About a month ago I started revising and updating some older blog posts and publising them to a site called Associated Content (AC). One of my future goals is to write shorter articles and this process is helping me get better at doing that. So far I have 32 articles on AC and will continue updating old posts. To see what I have done so far, please click this link. This will take you to my profile page, which has links to all my articles.

Writing for AC has caused a little decrease in time spent on my blog, but the big change is that I was recently offered the opportunity to produce new articles and videos exclusively for a health and fitness website. I would like to say more, but I am not allowed to give any specifics at this time. Since I will be spending most of my time producing content for that website, I will be writing less on my blog, but I will still try to produce occasional new content here. However, the blog content will still appear on Associated Content first, because that increases the distribution options and allows me to reach more people.

At this point I am not sure exactly what the direction is going to be for my blog, but I am always willing to answer any health or fitness questions you have and I am definitely interested in hearing about topics you would like me to cover in the future. If you ask me a question or suggest a topic for me to write about, I will make sure to respond. If you have any questions or topic suggestions, please email me directly at ross@precisionhealth-fitness.com.

Misuse of Scientific Research in Health and Fitness Marketing

Posted by Ross Harrison, CSCS, NSCA-CPT on August 25, 2010

     It can be very difficult to separate quality sources of health and fitness information from misleading or untruthful information used for manipulation or product promotion. One of the primary reasons is because sources of quality information and sources of mediocre information both use scientific data to make their information come across as more factual or compelling.
