A priori -- a word for the information age.
a pri•or•i 1. reasoning from cause to effect 2. knowledge existing in the mind independent of experience. More ...
A priori is an important concept in an information society, where we live in two worlds: A local world and a global world. The local world is the traditional real world where you walk, run, eat, carry, feel gravity and interact with people -- face-to-face. Your global world is the world that is changed by people you don't even know. It is the world that is more competitive each day. It is the world that makes products obsolete before you have the chance to really use them. But it is also the world that allows you to talk to friends and family thousands of miles away. It is the world that allows you to see a product on
Amazon.com, buy it, and have it shipped the next day. It is a world that allows you to see current video news or sports from any city's network news website or see photos of friends or family from anywhere in the world.
A priori skills are valuable because reasoning and visualization without experience is a necessary skill in a world that is increasingly global, remote and virtual.
With Aprioriathletics, you don't just learn cookie cutter techniques, you learn the rationale and the reasoning of how your body works in your local, physical world and how technology works in your global, virtual world.
Ultimately you synergize these two worlds together for your best human performance.
The mission of Aprioriathletics is to improve human performance and health in sports, occupations, business, family life and personal life.
The mission is accomplished with understanding and practical application of the following fields of study:
