Born Primal Episode 5: The Fitness Explorer (Podcast)

Kendall helping her little one get some reading practice...

Listen to me being interviewed on Born Primal and the opportunity to win a copy of the book "Paleo Fitness"
"Darryl Edwards also known as The Fitness Explorer from London, is the author of the brand new book Paleo Fitness. He developed the PRIMALity methodology to inspire others to make activity truly fun while getting incredibly healthier, fitter, and stronger in the process.

In this episode of Born Primal, Darryl and I have a conversation about the importance of play for children and adults, plus the differences between Paleo in the UK versus the US."
