Note: This is a transcription of the intro to the video: ‘22 Outdoor Exercise Ideas’.

Hi guys,

I am in the United States at the moment at a place called Prescott (Arizona). Just had a fantastic workout at a playground nearby Watson Lake. I thought I would show you what it is that I have been carrying in my suitcase since we have been travelling, so you can see what I use for a work-out.

1/ First thing I have is an exercise tube with handles (resistance tubing) on the end.  There are so many different brands of this that you can get. I really like this one as it’s got an encasing over the top in case it snaps.

2/ Second thing I use is a suspension training strap system. Once again there are so many of them that you can get. This one is an Australian-made one called ‘The Ultimate Instrument’. It’s very simple and it all fits inside a little bum bag or ‘fanny pack’ as the Americans call it 🙂 . It’s actually got door anchors in it as well to use in your hotel room if you don’t have access to somewhere like this. (not available for sale anymore)

3/ I also use a skipping rope, especially if I want to do a strength endurance type workout to basically just keep the movement running. Great for doing a skipping set in-between a set of exercises.

So it is really quite simple! You’ll see the videos that we have just made with the exercises that we have done. Find a beautiful area like this and go for gold.

It’s had a huge influence over the last several years on the fitness industry at large and is now an industry within itself worldwide, especially within the United States from where it originated around 10 years ago. It’s an extremely intense, demanding form of fitness, which is now a sport in it’s own right. Here’s an in depth analysis of my experience of it, so buckle up and get ready for the ride :-).

Movement, defined as “The act, process, or result of moving” (your body, in this case), is the 5th of the Primal 6 keys of optimal health. We all know that movement is important, yet all we ever talk about is exercise, defined as “bodily (or mental) exertion”. By definition, they are not much different. However, exercise seems like something we have to make time for, sign up to, schedule in. Yet we have many opportunities for movement every day!
