Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Some excellent ideas from this one! Great job.

  2. Awesome! I like seeing the kid in there – I did some of those things with mine just the other day!

  4. How inspirational! What a wake up call to see all of the fun ways to use our muscles in our own environment. I will never look at stairs and railings the same.

  5. Love it. I like the fact they use a TRX as well. Some great exercise ideas.

  6. A workout that uses little to no gear?!?! These workouts used a pickup truck, a dog, a whole ocean and a small child! Do you know how expensive a child is? I’m not getting one just so I can work out!

    Great video :)

  9. Thanks for all the wonderful comments.
    It’s both encouraging and validating to hear from people who are open to a “different” way of training, and Mark’s “Primal Blueprint Fitness” hits the important points head on!

    We have always enjoyed training and playing together. In addition to the obvious health benefits of making healthy choices in the foods we eat and activities we pursue, we’re now being rewarded once again as we witness our own children sharing the benefits of an active, playful lifestyle with their kids! It just doesn’t get any better.

    Be well!

    Cathy & Mark

  10. Great video!
    It really shows joy of life, and that a primal lifestyle can be a source of such joy.
    The video is well made too, loved the little details. The dog made me laugh! And how many times a day do you throw that kid up in the air? :-)

  11. Nice Video! I don’t know if that was a real fish but if it was that is priceless! I love working out with my kids, and they love to be tossed, as well as the crawling exercises, pushing and squatting. Because kids are not a solid piece of steel, they add an extra dimension of difficulty…and yes they are an expensive piece of fitness equipment!
