Moving Naturally…..missing what is right in front of our faces.
I am truly lucky. I have been given a chance to live my dream everyday of my life. I have a loving, caring and beautiful wife. I have two incredible children who are healthy and quite possibly the most adorable little girls in the world, and somehow the powers that be have seen fit to give us one more child in June (sex has yet to be discovered). Since I have left full time employment to pave my own way through Opening Crossfit Williamsville, I find myself with a schedule that permits me to take my 5 year old to school everyday and even pick her up. It is great. Unfortunately I rarely get to spend time during the week with my 3 year old Reagan. Today my wife and I decided to split forces…she would get Kyra for some much needed Mommy Kyra time, and I would get to spend all day with Reagan…..
MovNat Class at the Mall….
Our mall, on Niagara Falls Blvd, Has a pretty nice, soft, open play area for little ones, and that is where we headed. For at least 45 minutes I got to watch my little 3 year old Movnatter “workout” non stop for that whole time. I saw rock bottom squats, active hangs, broad jumps, butt slides, foot hand crawls, knee hand crawls, planks, she demonstrated cooperation, helping other children crawl on top of things, she ran barefoot the whole time….it was a masterful display of MovNat skills…..and the coolest thing…all the other kids were Movnatting as well…..and they did not even know it. And then it hit me, when I am running a class, and maybe I have set up a little combo course for my members to run through I see the same joy and smiles coming from them that I was seeing today from the kids. See we are hardwired to enjoy this kind of movement…it is in the very fiber of our DNA…..and for most of us we have forgotting how liberating and fun exercising through natural movement can be…..
If you would like to know more about…please…come give it a shot..the first class is always and will always be on me….
have a great rest of your Weekend everyone…..
