The World Needs a New
Fitness Solution

What happens when people believe they have to go indoors to move? We end up with more illnesses and chronic disease states than ever and stripped of our instinctive, wild, and very necessary part of the human experience—adventure!

Our sedentary lifestyle has led to high rates of obesity, anxiety and depression, nature deprivation and digital distraction. Entire countries are burdened by the healthcare costs of preventable illnesses. Meanwhile the oceans are full of plastic, ecosystems are collapsing, and the Earth bears the brunt of our indifference.

LEARN

your health is your wealth

Mother Nature’s Gym blows the walls and the ceiling off what Personal Trainers, Health Coaches, and Mind-Body instructors can—and cannot—do with their clients indoors. 

What new doors will this course open? For one, your training studio will expand to your favorite nearby forest, lake, or green space. You will no longer be limited to earning money as an hourly employee or stuck staring at a screen to train remote clients.

Think of Mother Nature’s Gym as an added skill set to your fitness toolkit. You already have all that you need to lead your clients in the indoor gyms and studios. Now you’ll add what’s been missing—the restorative, healing power of nature. No matter where you want to lead your first outdoor fitness retreat, this course will help you develop the confidence and competence to take that first step.

“The philosophies and pragmatic instruction in this book certainly comport with the standard of care for musculoskeletal health.

As a member of the Board of Counselors at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery, I can strongly state that if the world followed the precepts espoused in this book, fewer people would require the skills that I can offer in the clinic or in the operating room.”

Paul Winterton M.D., Board of Counselors, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
