5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!! 25 Jun. 2013
By Rebekah
I have always had a keen interest in exercise and nutrition, however over the last few years I have found little to inspire and excite me, I fell into excuse mode, I didn't have enough time to exercise, the gym membership was too costly, I didn't have time to cook etc etc. This book has changed that, I have a renewed passion and drive to be 'lean, strong and healthy'. After reading only a few pages I found myself trying out my cat walk, my bear crawl and sharing my knowledge with others, after work work-outs will now be a feature!!!

This book is for all generations, during playtime I made a game of some primal moves with a small group of children...Their enthusiasm and energy was infectious, primal training should be part of every school curriculum. I also find that whenever I have a spare minute I slip off my shoes and wall sit for a while (there can be a lot of waiting around on my job.)

The detailed program effectively removed many of my excuses to beginning a Paleo lifestyle, all that I needed to know was there, recipes, exercises, meal plan...

This book is an education and inspiration to ditch the 'quick fix' 'convenience' culture of diet and exercise and embrace a life of simplicity and strength, a must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the fitness world needs !! 6 Jun. 2013
By Zach
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having been a fitness enthusiast for most of my life from school sports like football, basketball, athletics and gymnastics, I loved them all. As with a lot of people, adult life can be a little bit distracting and you neglect health and fitness. I tried athletics groups and hiking and some jogging but always 'felt' like it was missing something. I never really felt happy with myself however hard I tried.
I started eating a Paleo diet in December 2011 and saw vast improvements in my health, mood and progress in relieving pain from a back injury. It was then I first encountered Darryl Edwards (Author) on an internet forum and began conversing with him and found his knowledge of this way of eating enormous but what was so interesting to me was the fitness aspect as this was my passion in life. I got to meet Darryl on one of his PRIMALity workshops and found the experience great. I learned more about physical capabilities in 2 hours than in my entire searching of literature and internet for 4 years. Actually working out (or 'Playing out' as Darryl calls it) made all the difference as it was this very part of the 'work out', the 'playing' part, that made me feel happy to 'work out'.
The one thing that stood out from meeting with Darryl is you get the impression he has really has researched this from every angle, weighed up the pros and cons and gone with the best optimal solution for human fitness. This first book is just the beginning I hope, and people start to adopt this lifestyle rather than just a quick-fix.
I got a copy of this book and it seems like a fitness book anyone can pick up, read and understand without getting too technical and scientific. But if you want the science and evidence, it has a resources section at the back of the book.

This book is much more than the sum of its parts - it is truly a holistic approach to feeling energetic and brimming with health. What's more, it's enjoyable to implement.

I bought this book on recommendation of a friend and though it sounds clichéd, it has genuinely transformed my life and interaction with my young family.

The book is well-written, concise and practical. There is a nuts and bolts introduction to paleo nutrition, with references for those wanting to dig deeper. If you are already up to speed on ancestral nutrition, this provides an excellent refresher. There is a handy two week meal plan with delicious recipes all the family enjoy - even my fussy four year old. I'm such a firm believer in this approach - based on my own personal results using the book - that I am even weaning my baby as a Paleo-baby.

The real beauty of this book, and where it outshines all other books on the market, is Edwards' approach to mentally transforming your attitude to "fitness" or "working out". As the book says, "Don't work out, play out". This fundamental shift in attitude enables the reader to easily incorporate movement and play outs into everyday life - and for me, this means with the whole family. There is a four week plan for three levels of fitness, with the primary focus on whole body movement rather than "exercise" and easy to follow descriptions of the movements together with photos of both males and females performing the movements.

With time constraints of a modern life, two careers and young children, I needed a plan that was achievable and could be integrated into everyday life, and wouldn't require hours and hours of my time or special equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars I finally found "my thing" yayyyy!!!! 4 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I will begin by saying that I am one who has an aversion to exercise, to a typical workout, so I am an expert in the field finding excuses. The only way you will get me to move is through dancing. I met Darryl at Paleo F(X) in April, 2014. I participated in one of his workshops of primal play, we “explored” ways, from animal walks to playing tag, to planks and partner work. Time went by and I found myself sweating and laughing so hard, I really did not feel was “exercising”. I was so happy I met so many incredible people and at the end of the workshop all I could think of was, I can’t believe one could get fit while having so much fun. But it is TRUE! I bought the book and now I take it with me on my business trips.
Darryl suggests that getting strong should be fun and functional. In this great book you can also find the basics of Paleolithic lifestyle. The book is easy to read, and to the point.
I was most excited for the fitness plans that I can adapt to wherever I travel to with minimal or non-existent equipment.
I finally found my “thing”. I am ready to move naturally and effectively! I highly recommend Paleo Fitness.
