PrimalCon 2012 Registration Now Open!

primalcon2011 320x240 1I am very excited to announce that registration is now open for the third annual PrimalCon (Thursday, April 12 – Sunday, April 15, 2012), our 3-day Primal Blueprint health and fitness retreat held at the beautiful Oxnard Beach Park in Southern California. PrimalCon is a total immersion weekend experience of expert-guided workouts, play, leisure time, lectures and presentations with assorted expert presenters on Primal-related topics, camaraderie with fellow Primal enthusiasts, and extraordinary Primal feasts – an experience that you will never forget for the rest of your life.

PrimalCon welcomes participants of all fitness and experience levels with leveled exercise groups and strict efforts to ensure appropriate self-pacing all weekend. The conference fee is $795, which includes delicious catered Primal lunch and dinner buffets, and a lavish goodie bag of apparel and other Primal gear. You’ll book accommodations directly with a choice of nearby options (oceanfront resort, upscale affordable motel, oceanfront campground, or even renting a beach house with your pals). To ensure an intimate experience and direct engagement with me and expert presenters, slots are limited to the first 125 registrants.

IMG 0226 2Hopefully you shared in some of the excitement and magic of the 2010 and 2011 PrimalCon events through our extensive photos, videos, and live blogging. PrimalCon is more than just great food and a lively and diverse agenda blending lectures, fitness activities and plenty of play. The truly magical element is the gathering of like-minded folks from all over the globe who share a tremendous passion for living Primally.

  • Seminars and presentations include general sessions with me and other featured presenters with specialized areas of expertise directly related to the Primal movement.
  • Workouts will take place right on the sand or the expansive grass fields of Oxnard Beach Park. Experts in Primal Blueprint Fitness will guide you in small groups segmented by ability, and designed to invigorate you without risking overstress or injury.
  • We’ll have all kinds of fun, games, and relaxation, including leisurely hiking on the beach and sand dune preserve, Ultimate Frisbee matches (of course, no good conference should be without), extensive free time for small group engagement with the presenters of your choice (wanna learn to tightrope-walk?), and the top secret Primal Team Survivor Challenge that will test all of your physical, problem-solving, and teamwork abilities.
  • Hard-core Primal enthusiasts are welcome; we’ll have some lively fitness competitions to test you against worthy competition. However, as aligned with the principles of the Primal Blueprint, this conference is for absolutely everyone. Even if you are injured, relatively unfit, or unfamiliar with the Primal Blueprint, this weekend can kick-start a brand new way of life! We’ll group you with those of similar ability for fitness activities, and watch carefully to ensure that you don’t overdo it. You can also feel free to pick and choose your agenda participation at any time. After all, the beach beckons all weekend.
  • We’ll have lavish Primal feasts featuring ridiculously colorful and enticing lunch and dinner buffets. Enjoy an amazing assortment of fresh-cooked, locally grown, pasture-raised, premium quality Primal offerings. Linger after dinner for social time as the sun sets and the fog drifts in to mark the end of the day.
  • Oh, let’s not forget the now world-famous Primal ocean plunge. (Watch it here.) Don’t worry though, you can get from the water’s edge to the Embassy Suites jacuzzi in about 41 seconds (might even count as a sprint workout)!

Guest Presenters

In addition to yours truly, we have a stacked presenter list for PrimalCon 2012 featuring numerous leaders in the field and members of the Mark’s Daily Apple community:

ErwanCloseUpFaceLog2

Erwan Le Corre is the founder of MovNat, which is a synthesis of his long-term passion with natural movement, his extensive knowledge of “Methode Naturelle” and his philosophy of life. We are overjoyed to have the leader of this fast growing movement join us at PrimalCon. Erwan, originally from France, now lives in the USA. He is working on a book, DVD series, a MovNat certification, and an indoor-outdoor permanent facility for MovNat training.

Kelly 0333 2

Kelly Starrett is Founder and operator of CrossFit San Francisco. He is an expert on performance-based orthopedic sports medicine, helping athletes prevent and recover from serious injuries with functional rehabilitation exercises. Kelly holds a doctorate in Physical Therapy and has trained numerous Olympic and professional athletes, professional dancers, and military personnel. He has competed at the elite level in whitewater rafting and whitewater kayaking. Kelly will provide 1:1 and small group consultations during the PrimalCon weekend to address specific functional problems and injuries of PrimalCon guests.

Picture8 2

Barefoot Ted is back by popular demand for PrimalCon 2012! Who can forget Ted floating along the Oxnard Beach Park cement path with strides as light as a deer, undaunted by strange looks from passer-by’s and inspired 24/7 by his mission to ”re-discover primal human capacities and encouraging others to do the same.” Ted is an independent athlete committed to re-discovering primal natural human capacities and encouraging others to do the same. He has been featured in numerous articles focused on the benefits of barefoot running. He also has played a major role in popularizing minimalist footwear including Luna Sandals.

Angelo ProActive Massage

Angelo dela Cruz: Angelo won well-deserved “MVP” honors at PrimalCon 2010 and 2011. The guy was simply amazing – a high-energy master healer and athlete who went from dawn till late at night spreading positive energy to PrimalCon guests. He got us all going with his morning Vitamove (an energizing/focusing mix of tai chi and stretching), and we can’t think of a better way to start 2012 days off at the beach. Angelo will engage with groups large and small to dispense his unique wisdom and instruction in the areas of breakdancing, parkour/freerunning, gymnastics, and martial arts. He is also an expert healer and was in high demand for 1:1 stretching/massage realignment sessions. To get a sense of Angelo, check out his ninja warrior audition tape!

Picture7 2

Chef Rachel Albert: At PrimalCon 2011 Chef Rachel wowed attendees with her delicious dishes and by showing them how to make healthy and quick meals. She is a dynamo of enthusiasm and expertise from Phoenix, AZ who has been making quite an impact on the Primal/paleo cooking world. You may know her from her book, Garden of Eating.

Chef Rachel will present a cooking demo at PrimalCon. She will introduce you to special cooking techniques, and will show you how to make dazzling, eye-catching arrangements that entice everyone – Primal or not – to dig in.

BillyVives

Billy Vives will present his unique and super-creative kettlebell workout throughout the weekend. Billy’s kettlebell training honors two key principles: attention to quality of movement and keeping it fun! “Quality of Movement” means fine-tuning the training to ensure that all trainees are learning and maintaining good posture, which is the foundation of efficient movement. He stresses injury prevention and patience (“First move better, then get stronger”). Billy teaches kettlebell training from the “ground up”, allowing trainees to work on understanding how it feels for their body to move right. The trainees flow through the complementary aspects of stability, endurance and dynamic power, while learning how even a relatively light weight (18lbs) can be an easy warm-up – or a challenging test of strength and coordination. Billy’s session caters to all levels – from beginners who have never held a bell to hard-core enthusiasts looking for innovative new ideas.

monisha 1

Monisha White: Maya White and Esther Gokhale’s posture and movement mechanics presentations at PrimalCon 2010 and 2011 were such a hit that we had to have an instructor from the Esther Gokhale institute present at PrimalCon 2012. We’re pleased to announce that Monisha White, a lead teacher in Palo Alto, and daughter of Esther Gokhale will lecture on posture and movement. If you want to learn how to sit, move and stand like Grok, or if you have back or neck pain, Monisha will be there to answer all of your questions and provide hands-on support.

Tara

Tara Grant is a featured success story in my upcoming book, Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation. You probably remember her from her Mark’s Daily Apple success story, Tons of Doctors and No Solution. She has transformed from 235 pounds to 159 pounds since going Primal in 2009. Tara suffered a litany of serious health problems related to the Standard American Diet and repeated failures of western medicine to cure her. She’ll be sharing her story in-person of how she took matters into her own hands with a steady, sensible, Primal approach.

Twilliamsafter

Timothy Williams is a two-time PrimalCon alumni and is also a featured success story in my upcoming book, Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation. Check out his success story on Mark’s Daily Apple if you haven’t already: Complete Recovery Within a Week. During Timothy’s transition to Primal living, he developed a passion for sledgehammer workouts, which he will present at PrimalCon.

Seriously, you don’t want to miss this event, so grab your spot today and take what is likely a well-deserved 3-day retreat this coming April. See you there!

You want comments? We got comments:

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.

    • Looking forward to seeing you again, Lars!

      Mark Sisson wrote on September 28th, 2011
    • Damnit Lars you beat me! I don’t have the cash to sign up at this moment anyways but I will be there – that’s a guarantee. If I’m living Im there.

      I attended Primal Con this year and it was the greatest experience of my life. SImply being with 80+ primal folks was worth the money. The activities, food, perfect weather, presentations, meeting the presenters and mark sisson were a bonus. A huge bonus of course.

      Don’t hestitate to sign up folks. I’d bet money that a full 125 will sign up by early next year!

  2. Mark, you scheduled it for the weekend I am getting married! How inconsiderate of you…

    We’re serving Primal fare at the reception, though, so we’ll be there in spirit I suppose. :)

    Uncephalized wrote on September 28th, 2011
    • To be honest I probably can’t justify the expense this year anyway. Maybe we’ll be at PC2013. I hope so. It sounds like a blast!

      Uncephalized wrote on September 28th, 2011
      • It really is. I’m really looking forward to it. And it looks like some past attendees that have already reserved their spot are too!

  4. Looks so great, Mark. Trying to make it work.

    Meantime, I remember reading about the knee surgery you had a while back.

    I’m having pretty major foot surgery in November, the healing time for which is a year. Wondering if you could post about (if you haven’t already), ways to work out when one foot or leg is out of commission.

    I’m coming up with some ideas on my own, but I’d like to learn from you.

    Note: To complicate matters, I can’t hang from a bar because of shoulder problems (missing cartilage, had a debridment, likely risk of re-injury if I hang, says my doctor).

    Thanks, Mark. Again, hope to make it to PrimalCon.

    Susan

    Susan Alexander wrote on September 28th, 2011
    • Sorry to hear about your injury, Susan.

      Well, this might give you some ideas: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/exercising-through-injury/

      Hope you can make it to PrimalCon. Sounds like you might benefit from some one-on-one sessions with Kelly, Angelo, Monisha and me.

      Best

      Mark Sisson wrote on September 28th, 2011
      • Mark:

        Thanks so much. Yes, on-to-one time sounds like just what I’l lneed.

        Thanks for the link. Great post. It’s going to take a lot of creativity in my case, because most exercises that work when one foot/leg is injured aren’t viable for me because of my shoulder concerns (e.g. burpees).

        It’s my right foot that’s the problem, and both shoulders. For 4 months, my foot will be completely non-weight bearing, and it will either be in a cast or a splint. I’m guessing that swimming might be one of the first things I’ll try once those things are gone, but there still will be months before that when I’ll need other things to try.

        I’m thinking that rowing might work, holding my right leg and foot in the air and pushing with my left. Not sure how it’ll feel shoulder-wise, but it’s worth a try.

        And there’s always one-legged cycling (with my bike on a trainer).

        Please let me know if any other ideas come to mind. Hope to see you in April!

        Thanks!

  5. Hey Mark,
    What if you come with a spouse or partner who won’t be attending the whole conference, but wants to share in the dinner? Will there be an option to pay for a guest to join the dinner feasts? I hate to think of him sitting in the hotel room alone while I feast on the beach! :-)

    Janine wrote on September 28th, 2011
    • Call my office at 310-317-4414 and we can see about making special arrangements for your husband. Hope to see you both there!

      Mark Sisson wrote on September 28th, 2011
  6. I would love to come to this. I have checked and you can rent homes as close as next door to the hotel, on the beach, for $200-$400 per night in April. They sleep 4-8 people. If anyone is interested in looking into this (no obligation at this point) send me a note to peter@phkemp.com and I’ll start an e-mail list to keep us all up to speed on the options..and then as times goes by, have a time to commit and give deposits. $100 a night or less right on the beach would be terrific. singles, couples, co-ed, whatever. If I go I think I’d like to pursue the beach cottage angle.

    Hal wrote on September 28th, 2011
  11. I am so excited! What a fantastic event. My wife and I will have been Primal for about a year by the time this comes around.

    Such a shame then that we cannot make it as we live in the UK and we’ll be in Vegas a month before, so couldn’t make it back so soon after.

    Any chance you might do something like this in Europe for all your loyal European fans? ;) Ha ha ha, maybe not, but I still wish you and all the attendees the best of fun!

  15. Mark, I’ve sent you an email regarding PrimalCon 2012 and deaf, I haven’t heard from you. So this latest article gives me another opportunity to ask you. I wonder if is it doable for deaf people to register and join? Given the fact of lack of ability to hear, interpreter would be next best choice for deaf people. Which means do we have to pay them too or you’d get an interpreter for some of us? Looking forward to hear your answer on our concerns. Thanks.

  18. Ticket ordered!!!

    I’ve wanted to do this since I first saw the pictures of the 2010 PrimalCon… but couldn’t get to the US last year as I was retrenched and funds were too tight for the airfares etc (if only I lived in California!).

    Really looking forward to PrimalCon2012 – If anyone else is heading over from Australia, would be good to see if we can co-ordinate in any way to maximise the social experience and minimise travel costs etc

    Grok On!

  21. Hmm…is it worth it to stay in a hotel? I’m thinking about registering. I live in Santa Barbara though, so I’d probably just save some dough and drive down each day.

    Marcia wrote on September 28th, 2011
  22. When I saw the blogs about Primalcon 2011 I said next year I will be there.
    I havent registered yet, but I will be heading over from NZ.
    Probably stay a few more days to make the trip worthwhile.
    Be good to find other travelers to share accommodation with like Luke said to help minimise accomodation/travel costs.

  34. Wow I would totally go… if I could afford it… it would be around or slightly under a whole 1000 dollars for me to attend. And I live in LA already! I am already going to the WAPF conference in Dallas which is way less expensive!!!!

  35. Just booked our tickets! We are flying in from Portland, OR. Anyone flying into LAX at 1pm on Thursday want to share a taxi? :)

  37. I’m new to the whole Primal thing so I dont think I will be going to PrimalCon quite just yet. It looks like a total blast though, and going to try and make it to the 2013 event!

  38. I’m registered…this will be my first time! I’m not a stranger to Oxnard and I just recently got a GROK tattoo on my right leg, too! He’s my reminder to stay on course. He’s also just nice to have because I have a degree in anthropology, so he’s my “caveman” hunter-gatherer totem.
