Primal Play – making exercise fun!
If exercise came in pill form, we would only be too eager to take our medicine. But is working-out as medicine too difficult a pill for the majority of us to swallow? By understanding that nature has hard-wired us to hate exercise, but encourages us to love movement, we can examine our attitudes to exercise. If working out isn’t working out, what should we do instead?
BHMA’s Trustee Darryl Edwards is a play advocate, movement coach and author of the best-selling book Animal Moves. Darryl developed the Primal Play Method to make activity fun for children of all ages (4-to-94) while getting healthier, fitter and stronger in the process. He is most passionate about working with those who don’t really like to exercise!
