Natural fitness / evolutionary fitness

Postby 7bluewren » Sun Feb 26, 2012 5:57 am

I'm looking for info! Was just wondering if anyone knows anything about natural or evolutionary fitness. It may have other names, I'm not sure. I like the definitions of it here: http://tengeri.com.au/home/natural-fitness/ and here http://movnat.com/about-movnat/what-is-movnat-2/. I kind of find the idea of gyms and a lot of conventional exercise bit unnatural/sterile and I'm looking into alternatives. What are your thoughts on this type of exercise and do you know of any online, preferably free resources I could look at, or any books I could buy/borrow on the subject?
Cheers

May I refer you to Jeremy, of Peep Show:

"I don't need to pay money to join a gym. The world is my gym. The hills, the trees, the rivers - they are my gym."

That's all you need to know.

thanks Herbsman! that is a good idea... I think its right in that a lot of the evolutionary fitness is about just going outside and playing and enjoying nature... prob is I live in an urban environment, though there are some parks and stuff, I probably want something I can do in an urban setting... I've never seen this peepshow because I'm in Australia and don't have channel 4.

ok if anyone else is interested I am finding this site helpful. I'm thinking seriously about buying to wild movement guide, pretty reasonably priced http://www.wildmovement.com

I've found the advocates of this exercise advise a paleo diet :? So I emailed the guy and asked about vegan alternatives. I eat pretty high raw and have pretty much cut out flour and sugar. Which are also no nos on the paleo diet. I know raw veganism is out there, I eat pretty high raw, but the thing is I am not really anti-cooked food. But I do not eat much grains and I just try to eat foods as close to their natural state as possible. So a lot of raw vegan recipes work for me. If something is lightly steamed then I'm ok with that that, but I actually prefer tasty salads to steamed veg so I eat raw out of preference a lot of the time. I try to avoid browning things. And I love fruit. Sugar is nothing compared to fruit. but anyway, this post is not meant to be about diet and I'm waffling...

I agree with that, but what happens if someone doesn't own a car...
Whenever I can, I arrange with friends to go for a mountain run. It is just not as often as I would like it to be. Mountain is far away- I don't own a car to go alone when I am available.

The public training stadium is also far away. So, I basically train on the asphalt, it is the only thing I can do for the moment. I also do yoga and body pump at home through internet. For now, I am sticking with this no gym solution because there is a strong possibility that I might move from this area.
