I am so excited to share with you the release of this comprehensive project, one that has been two years in the making in order to create the ultimate online certification experience for the topic of fitness!

I’m talking about the Primal Fitness Coach online certification program—a home study, multimedia educational program that we believe is the single most comprehensive, online educational experience you’ll find anywhere. If you want to start a career in fitness, elevate your career in fitness, or if you just want to enhance your overall personal knowledge of all aspects of leading a healthy, active, fit, energetic lifestyle, then you will love this course. Homestudy is where it’s at these days, and in this very intensive program, it helps even more to be able to go at your own pace. You also have the perk of having endless access to the materials!

In this show, I will walk you through all the details of what you’ll be learning if you decide to embark on this guided journey on all aspects of fitness. One important point we hit on is that in this highly regimented, goal oriented, focused, driven, hectic society, it can be easy to thoughtlessly apply the same mentality to our fitness pursuits, thinking we must quantify and measure everything, and push ourselves past our breaking point. But science and the wisdom of our bodies tells us that we shouldn’t go out of our way to put up consistent results at the expense of our health, which is why the first chapter of the course is centered around the concept of Fitness for Health. Unfortunately, a lot of mainstream fitness programming is flawed and inherently overly stressful, but this episode will teach you how to draw the distinction between fitness and health— something all health conscious people must remember, as it is entirely possible to be super fit while also being unhealthy!

You need to be consistent. But, of course, you can go all out once in a while. [19:17]

The second chapter of the course is about everyday movement. Just moving more in daily life, is possibly more important than adhere to a devoted fitness regimen. [23:42]
