The Ancestral Boot Camp I Want To Visit

November 8, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Dear entrepreneurs: In case you want to get this set up for the summer, I thought I would let you know what kind of experience I would be willing to pay money for.

I am looking for an Ancestral Fitness Boot Camp. What is this, you may ask? Good question.

In essence, this camp would be a time to reboot and recharge my physical being. It would be at least two weeks in duration. All the food would be Paleo-compliant. There would be two workouts per day, held outdoors, using MovNat and other intense training principles. There would be no clocks to speak of. We would get up and do what we do throughout the day based on our bodies’ timetables. Since I am creating my dream environment, of course there would be a yoga class available every night.

There would be no cell phone or Internet service whatsoever – we would be completely unplugged from the grid.

Furthermore the artificial light used at night would be minimal to nonexistent. Maybe we would even use candles and flames.

The point of all this would be to create the cleanest reboot experience possible for the human organism. By re-creating the conditions – or simulations and approximations of the conditions – that we experienced throughout the majority of our species evolution, I hope that I would in essence be able to culturally detoxify.

I fantasize returning from this experience, which may in fact need to be more like four weeks, refreshed, revitalized, and ready to rock. Oh, and really strong!

I would pay money for this.
