When I first got started physically training, there wasn’t a lot of good information out there for how to develop balanced strength, flexibility, coordination, and agility. I desperately wanted to awaken my potential. Everywhere I looked, it seemed people either had what it took to be extraordinary movers—or they didn’t. Not many people were talking about how to train to be better at movement.
Early on, I was deeply inspired by great martial artists, dancers, climbers, and acrobats, but I didn’t feel particularly talented myself. Then again, I wasn’t going to accept being mediocre either. I still vividly remember the time when I swore to myself that I was going to dedicate my life to improving the capacity of my mind and body to the highest degree possible. Along the way, I’ve discovered a lot of secrets—secrets that I can’t wait to share with you.
Over the past 20 years I’ve sought out the best ways to teach people how to move their bodies better. Now I’ve combined everything I’ve learned into the Primordial Movement system. Primordial Movement is a family of fundamental physical skills that allow you to build and maintain functional strength, dynamic flexibility, and extraordinary agility for a lifetime.
I’ve created an online personal training system unlike any other—it works your whole body in a dynamic and interconnected way. Now you can experience the best of what I’ve learned no matter where you are in the world.
My inspiration for Primordial Movement comes from my diverse background in:
- Kung Fu
- Tai Chi Chuan
- Bagua Zhang
- Bujinkan Ninjutsu
- Sports and Exercise Science Research
Why should you be doing Primordial Movement?
The primary focus of Primordial Movement training is to help you move with more freedom. This program will increase your strength-to-bodyweight ratio, develop your lean muscle mass, and unlock stiff joints that are restricting your mobility. Over time, you will also find that your body will become more resistant to injury. Through a variety of joint strengthening exercises and agility drills, your muscles, tendons, joints, and bones—will benefit from the healing power of movement.
This program is also designed to fit into your personal schedule. It helps you build the habit of training wherever you are and whenever you want. Of course, you will have to make time for it, but as I will show you, it’s easy to fit in the exercises and drills into the nooks and crannies of your day. The workouts require no gym membership or expensive equipment.

***Important note about how to customize your workout***
Your results will also depend on how committed you are to bringing your very best to every session. Your body does a lot for you and it’s only fair that you plan a sacred time for it. Give back to your body and it will reward you. Trust me.
Every day of week, this program has a specific focus:
DAY 1: Crawling
DAY 2: Jumping
DAY 3: Balancing
DAY 4: Rolling
DAY 5: Agility
DAY 6: Upper Body Pulling
DAY 7: Recovery/Active Rest day
Similarly, each day follows this basic scheme:
- Movement Practice
- Strength & Conditioning
- Cool-down & Recovery Techniques
I’ve scheduled at least some movement for every day of the week. Some days are harder than others. If you are already fairly conditioned and you feel that your need more challenge, feel free to practice more than the basic program I offer. This can look like adding more sets or repetitions to the suggested exercises or practicing some of the more challenging drills more often.
The daily movement themes I’ve mentioned above are just suggestions that I feel flow in a nice sequence. However feel free to switch the days around as you see fit. Just be sure to complete all of the workouts by the end of each week.
You can also consolidate days (e.g. If you can’t train every day or if you miss a day) if it’s necessary to fit everything in. Similarly, if you need to break up the workouts into smaller chunks, you can opt to spread the drills and exercises throughout each day. Just remember, it is still your responsibility to get everything done by the end of each week.
To keep track of what sessions you’ve already completed, I’ll be sending you checklists with all of the workouts and exercises that are to be done for a given week. These checklists will come in handy particularly if you mix up the routine a bit. When you receive your checklist for the week, simply print it off and take it with you when you exercise.
