After attending a Mov Nat workshop at Paleo FX and, later, a one-day workshop in my home-town (you can read about it here) I'm feeling EXCITED about working out for the first time in a long time.
I've been working in the Fitness Industry for nearly 10 years and have done it all (bodybuilding, "functional fitness", Crossfit, Oly lifts, boxing, mountain biking, etc.) and have found merit and benefit from each experience, but I feel like Mov Nat is not only an elegant synthesis of true fitness (broken down in into locomotive, manipulative, and combative skills and aptitudes) but it is also REALLY fun and liberating.
For example, I've been riding my bike around town for years, but now I stop to balance, jump, and climb onto things. I'm looking at the world around me with an eye for movement opportunities and ways to interact with my surroundings.
Anyone else into "natural movement"? If so, what have your experiences/challenges been? (Mine is that damn muscle up!)
