Movement or exercise? What were we designed to do? There are so many schools of thought out there when it comes to movement, exercise and fitness. Some say the gym is where it’s at. Others run or ride bikes for miles. Others play out in nature and use the world as their playground… The latter is true for this week’s guest, Darryl Edwards, the Fitness Explorer, who is one of my greatest movement teachers.
Several years ago I attended a Primal Con health retreat in Lake Tahoe, and one of the highlights of the weekend was meeting Darryl and being a part of his fun, engaging, challenging and mind-bending Primal Play sessions. Since then I’ve been to several other Primal Playouts in Sydney and I completely support what Darryl stands for, his all-inclusive approach to spreading the joy of movement for everyone, and the wonderful human being that he is. You won’t want to miss this!
In this episode we discuss:
- Movement vs exercise
- How humans were designed to move
- Darryl’s movement method Primal Play and the importance of play
- Gut health, the Microbiome and movement
- Plenty more on health and movement!
