Many people don't get this until they try it. What do I mean? Well how many people comment on enjoying movement not because they will get fitter, or look better or will win medals but actually because they enjoy the process of movement. All those other goals will happen naturally as part of that process without the risk of losing joy.
FUNctional movement can be silly but it doesn't have to be pointless. It can be serious, it can be risky, easy or extremely difficult, it can be given context (real or imaginary) with purpose aligned to what we actually want to do in life. I'll expand on this point in a further blog post on PRIMALity. But for now here's a mini-testimonial from one of my recent workshops.
PRIMALity in action.
"Darryl was quite clear when we met him that his fitness sessions would change our lives. I’m always up for some life-altering *WODs, so I made sure I attended the first one I could.
Am I ever glad I did. 40 minutes flew by like 40 seconds. I realized afterwards that I didn’t stop laughing the entire time. Playing piggy-pack tag and hopping like a bunny had me so exhilarated that I actually put on a demonstration for Chris and Orleatha in the Austin airport. Darryl wants people to put fun, functional movement into their lives in a way that enlivens our spirits and makes us stronger." - Tara (Primal Girl)
