If the approach is not natural, like gyrating your body on a special machine, it will eventually fail.
If the approach is not easy, like having to go to a gym every day, it will eventually fail.
If the approach is not fun, like spending hours indoors on a stationary bike, it will eventually fail.
A lifestyle approach to losing weight, getting fit, staying healthy, and feeling great must be natural, easy and fun.
Running is the most tried-and-tested and effective approach to enabling people to lose weight, stay healthy, look good and feel great of all time. While other fads come and go, since the dawn of civilization, running has been used. Humans are designed to run – yet sadly the approach that worked for thousands of years has been lost. It’s been lost in competition, “trying harder”, “no pain no gain” distortions. The result is that the secret of the most effective, most time-tested approach has been lost. Yet an overwhelming amount of scientific research (see http://ping.fm/9dLK9) is proving that the lost art of Running Easy is the ultimate approach to a healthy, energized and long life.
The natural art of running has been lost in our modern climate of competition, getting ahead by putting others down, and trying harder. For thousands of years people ran just for the sake of it. They ran to get from one place to another. They ran to bring a message to someone. They ran for the pure pleasure of it. And in this was the art of running. Running that was a natural and easy part of life – running that brought health, fitness and energy as naturally as breathing brings air and life. Rediscovering this approach to running is not only energizing, but is also fun and natural.
It’s all about Running Easy not running hard. It’s about “trying easier” not “trying harder”. It’s about running because we love it not because we have to. It’s about walking before you are tired not because you are tired. It’s about running for an enjoyable time not a fast time. When these principles of Running Easy are discovered, running becomes a lifestyle. And when running becomes a lifestyle, the full benefits of running are experienced and enjoyed.
