Did you read the "About Us" section and can you complete the exercises listed there?

No answer yet

What are you looking for in a group like this? (There are no wrong answers.)

I envision the members to grow and learn together at their own individual pace as a community to help make their bodies/minds more functional & at the same time become more healthy & happy. I hope members will make their own (more local) groups too.

Our group is all about learning from each other. Do you have any specific talents or relevant knowledge you could share? (i.e. related to movement, food, foraging, survival, homesteading, etc.) It's OK if you don't.

Avid 'body weight' strength conditioning and stretch practitioner.

We travel all over for a good workout, although we generally hold most workouts in Union, Essex or Bergen counties. What part of NJ (or NY) are you in and how far would you travel for a workout? (no wrong answer, just curious)

Westfield, UNION County


I was settling into my middle-age but discovered I felt my body and mind was gradually falling apart! Then I read about le Methode Naturelle. I Googled & figured out this is pretty basic stuff--an excellent example of "Occam's Razor"!

What Chip F. is saying about this Meetup Group

Loved it! Warm-up: We included minimalist-specific stretches for the Achilles tendon, gastrocnemius, and soleus muscles. Adventure Time: was mostly in the dark which added to the difficulty. Focus Session: negative chin ups are a great way to quickly build strength to perform regular chin ups and pull ups. Homework: try doing 10 tumbles by yourself in SUPER SLOW MO :)
