Who are you?
I'm Frank Forencich and I'm the creator and lead trainer for Exuberant Animal, a performance training company in Seattle, WA, USA.
What is fitness to you?
Fitness to me lies in developing an intimate relationship with the natural world, especially in vigorous movement. It's a complete and integrated experience that includes, not just muscle and cardio, but sensation, attention and spirit.
What are your goals?
I'm currently offering Total Animal Training to a variety of clients including corporate, schools and private gyms. As we grow, I'll be looking to hire and train more trainers in the Exuberant Animal method.
What is one of your main concerns in relation to health?
My main concern is that people now spend far too much time indoors, insulated and isolated from the natural world. We are in serious danger of forgetting our connection and relationship to the earth. The health consequences of this de-natured lifestyle are immense.
What is your favourite exercise/activity?
I love barefoot running, partner-resistance training and big spiral moves with the Animal Stick, all of it outside.
