60 Second Interview: Vic Verdier (MovNat)

 60 Second Interview: Vic Verdier (MovNat)

Who are you?

My name is Vic Verdier. I'm the guy you call in the middle of the night when you want to learn about natural movement, aquatic activities or self-defense.

What is fitness to you?

Fitness is the mental and physical ability to do whatever you want with your body: running, jumping, playing, climbing, or defending yourself.  It allows you to quickly learn new skills or techniques whilst minimising the risk of injuries.

What are your goals?

My main goal is to train as many people as possible in natural movement.  Compared to the far less efficient "fitness programs" based on isolation movements using one-size-fits-all machines you find in most commercial gyms.  People have to re-learn how to move in a natural way, in a natural environment, with a nature-oriented mindset.

What is one of your main concerns in relation to health?

How can people gain so much weight and become couch potatoes - when there are so many good things to eat and to do in the world around us.

What is your favourite meal?
 
Any meal my late grandmother would have prepared. She didn't know anything about processed food, artificial flavouring or corn-based additives.

What is your favourite exercise/activity?
 
Improving my personal record on the 100m dash whilst chasing a pit-bull.
