60 Second Interview: Erwan Le Corre (MovNat)

 

 

Who are you?

I'm Erwan Le Corre.  A man with a vision, that aims to explore life and be true to my nature.  To enjoy and share my experience with others.

What is fitness to you?

I am interested in movement, the way we move in nature.  To be fit, is to be 100% practical and adaptive.  To prepare me for life, not a mirror or to look good on a beach.

What are your goals?

Moving naturally is the best way.  I want to make this vision accessible to everyone.  That everyone feels free to exercise any time, anywhere.  The way that humans have been moving for millions of years, efficient, strong, healthy and free.

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

That fact that people have lost the ability to move, squat, walk.  That one day everyone will become couch potatoes.

There needs to be a cultural shift, which goes beyond fitness.  It is a philosophy.  To be strong, happy, healthy and free.  Not weak, depressed, sick and imprisoned.

What is your favourite exercise/activity?

Jumping!

What is your favourite meal?

Organic scrambled eggs, bacon, coconut oil on a bed of green leaves and walnuts.
