The San Diego Paleo/Primal/Natural Movement Meetup Group is a fun, fitness-oriented bunch of folks who take our inspiration from "natural movement" (also called MovNat), and the paleo/primal lifestyle. This means exercising the way humans evolved to move, such as the way kids naturally play and the movements of people in tribal cultures, and eating the way humans were meant to eat, which means meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds...sweet potatoes...and dark chocolate :).

We will meet regularly, mostly at outdoor locations such as parks and nature preserves, to have fun climbing trees, scrambling over rocks, throwing rocks, jumping over stuff, using playgrounds, sprinting, playing tag, and having a great time! We'll also have more low-key picnics and potlucks. If you're in the San Diego area, please join our group. It's an ideal alternative to the gym and you'll meet great, like minded people, too!


Yes! The group is open to all fitness levels. Whether you're a couch potato, a triathlete, or anywhere in between, if you like being outside and challenging yourself, we think you'll love doing this! Our group includes people of all ages, both women and men. Kids are welcome, and they'll have a blast.

MovNat video to get you fired up!

While some of the moves look may challenging, once you try this, you'll be surprised at how many cool things you can do!


The type of natural movement we do is inspired by MovNat and the work of Erwan Le Corre. To get an idea of the meaning of moving naturally, here's a quote from Erwan: "The “zoo” is a modern, global and growing phenomenon generated by the powerful combination of social conventions, technological environment and commercial pressures. Increasingly disconnected from the natural world and their true nature, zoo humans are suffering physically, mentally and spiritually. Are you experiencing chronic pains, are you overweight, do you often feel depressed or do you suffer from frequent illnesses and general lack of vitality? These symptoms may indicate that you are experiencing the zoo human syndrome. Modern society conditions us to think that this is normal and unavoidable. We don’t think so. Our true nature is to be strong, healthy, happy and free." JOIN US! We hope you'll join our group and participate in some of our events. Give it a try. The people are great, it's a fun way to exercise, it's good for you, and you may just get hooked!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
