I notice people posting advice on fitness. Have you, or anyone else here, tried to increase their running endurance or size of muscles without exercising? Steve says it can be done. No one seems interested.

That is what he is claiming. And that is what you are claiming when you say reality is congruent with your beliefs. At bottom it is solipsism: that the universe is at your command, and nothing else in the universe matters other than your belief or desire. You can soften it, or finesse it: but that is, in the end, the nature of the claim.
