Darryl Edwards - Primal Play and The Fitness Explorer

The majority of my health state is based on how I lead my life and not how I was born” 


Role Model. Legend. Author. Paleo Expert. Public Speaker. Play Encourager. Londoner. Nutritionist. Good buddy. Darryl is the Real McCoy.


We could have listened to Darryl Edwards speak for days as we were totally fascinated with everything he had to share and the knowledge he imparted on us


Darryl’s ambition in life is to make exercise accessible and fun for everyone to do. He will change how you define exercise, how you structure your workouts and possibly how to approach your life


He is a very charismatic man, who bubbles with enthusiasm and bounces around while talking to you which is totally inline with his whole life ethos of play and enjoyment.

Darryl Edwards - Primal Play and The Fitness Explorer

He certainly is a man of many talents who has explored a spectrum of professions throughout his life….a technologist, a music producer, a professional dancer, a travel hacker, an author, a public speaker and of course the Founder of both The Fitness Explorer and Primal Play. You can only be in awe of people like this


In the Podcast we get into the nitty gritty of modern day health issues. Darryl takes us back and explains why ancestral health is something we all need to consider when it comes to our own well being


We hear how kids these days live sedentary lifestyles and how they get concerned when they start breathing deeply from playing or walking too fast because it’s a new found ‘experience’ for them!


Darryl tells us about his life changing experience during the London train bombings in July 2005


We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.


Let’s find out what it means for Darryl Edwards, to be Ridiculously Human.
