In her landmark book Learning to Breathe Fire: The Rise of CrossFit and the Primal Future of Fitness, former New York Times columnist J. C. Herz notes that Gold's Gym has statistically identified February 7 as the "Fitness Cliff," when checks in at the gym take a steep drop.
It's no secret that Americans disagree on their views about universal healthcare. Yet the divisiveness isn't about a lack of empathy for our fellow man. It's about a lack of clarity.
