Welcome to part four of the Primal Fitness Coach Expert Certification overview!

We covered the first ten chapters of the course in previous episodes, and in this episode, we’re talking about sprinting and jumping. Sprinting is the ultimate primal workout and the quintessential expression of the homo sapiens’ genetically hardwired fight or flight response. When you perform these brief explosive acts, you are getting what is considered to be a “desirable” fight or flight stimulation, but one forgotten benefit of being a fitness enthusiast is that learning to persevere through these difficult physical challenges has a strong likelihood of carrying over to real life. By learning how to hone your fight or flight and stress mechanisms, you can actually become a more calm, balanced person.
