What type of physical exercises do you teach?

Level 1
Basic Strength, Mobility, and Control

This includes everything from rehabilitation up through building a solid foundation of fitness.

Most traditional fitness exercises simply don’t carry over into real life (or more advanced skills). I teach primal movements that integrate the numerous aspects of strength, mobility, body control, and even mental relaxation, all at once.

Level 2
Intermediate / Advanced Skills

Learn fun and impressive body weight skills like handstands, gymnastic rings training, or parallette movements (low, portable parallel bars).

This is where most of my students start to really have fun with their training as they impress themselves with what they can do.

Level 3
Free-Form / Improvised Movement

Free-form movement is like adult play time. This is when you can really take ownership of the abilities you’ve developed by putting your own unique spin on how you use them.

Some degree of this is built into every level of training, but the further you go the more freedom you earn.

Paul Williamson, MS, PES, CPT

First and foremost, I am a teacher – not a drill sergeant. For over a decade as a personal trainer and student of movement, I’ve been developing and refining the Primal Zen movement philosophy that I now teach. Through an in-depth study of many different systems and practices, from yoga to gymnastics to calisthenics and weight lifting (and many more), I’ve come to find that most of the fitness industry has lost its common sense and become little more than a random assortment of incomplete truths.

It’s my goal to move us away from a theoretical approach to exercise that treats us like robots, and apply a healthy dose of practicality and common sense to teach us how to move like humans again. We can all reach incredible levels of performance and begin to move and feel better than ever by simply tuning into our natural capabilities and abandoning the limiting “rules” of movement that plague gyms around the world.
