We warmly welcome the media to help us spread our evolutionary health and fitness message.
Instinctive Fitness is broadly similar to the newly-emerging “Paleo” or “Primal” diet in the US, eschewing grains, processed foods, legumes, and modern ingredients (all sugar, vegetable oil, trans-fats, sweeteners, etc) in favour of the high quality meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts. It is a high-fat, medium-protein, low-carb diet. Instinctive eating is not as restrictive as Paleo but provides all the same benefits. Put simply, it favours “REAL FOOD”.
Instinctive Fitness rejects most of what goes on in typical gyms in favour of natural movement such as walking, running, lifting, dragging, carrying, jumping, balancing – ideally outdoors. Combining a low-effort, low-intensity programme punctuated by sporadic vigorous, energising bursts of strength and speed (High Intensity Interval training). Marathon running and other chronic cardio forms of exercise are seen as being potentially dangerous to health.
Instinctive Fitness looks at the social and physicological changes between how we live today and how we lived for hundreds of thousand of years. It identifies simple changes we can make to enable our lives to become more natural, healthy and stress-free. Topics such as sleep, relaxation, ‘barefootedness’, cold water, sunshine, the outdoors, play and love are covered.
