To train naked is to show up just as you are, without pretence, masks or bs. It is to live and work intentionally, to design and train for the life and career you desire. The ancient Greeks trained in the nude and competed naked in the Olympics, they literally had skin in the game. The word for gymnasium in Greek, gumnasia, literally means to train naked. These gyms were not only for physical training, they also had dedicated spaces for intellectual exercise, philosophy, teaching and conversation.
We train to compete and succeed. We practice over and over in order to nail a presentation. We must then also be training just as hard to become better human beings, to live meaningful lives, to do work that matters, and to thrive in chaos.
This keynote and book are calls to train naked, to have skin in the game and start training for the ultimate marathon, life.
It speaks of identity, purpose, ethics and along with a selection of life changing practices, they aim to inspire each one to take charge, get skin the game and train. www.thisispierreduplessis.com
