"With Paleo Fitness Darryl has distilled the essence of Paleo nutrition and Primal fitness into plain English. He gives practical tips on how to get fitter, leaner, stronger and healthier than ever before by following the Paleo lifestyle. He's transformed his own life and is passionate about getting people to eat and move as nature intended.
This book is a useful reference to enable individuals just starting out on the Paleo path as well as those who want to explore more challenging, playful and interesting ways to move."
"You can't out-train a poor diet and you can't use diet to effectively combat a poor lifestyle. Fitness and diet have to work together and we believe Darryl covers this topic with significant expertise."
"Darryl has created a fascinating book which gives people something to enjoy when it comes to movement. Whether at home, in the gym, or even better outdoors!"
--Mark Sisson, best-selling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of MarksDailyApple.com
Paleo Fitness is mandatory reading for anyone interested in leading a healthy lifestyle. It is very comprehensive, covering paleo exercise and nutrition. It is a place to track your progress, the recipes are fantastic and the pictures are great for those who have never exercised.
"Edwards' writing is honest, and his heart for health and fitness shine through in the text. It's an easy read but by no means "light" - information abounds on every page, from references to scientific studies to a handy chart explaining healthy body fat percentages. Paleo Fitness offers the perspective that there is room for experimentation, there is more for us to learn, and there is definitely a place for play, even in modern, Neolithic life."

Darryl Edwards has given us a great tool. His no-nonsense explanations of nutrition and exercise are unrivaled; he makes this seem easy, and, when you read it, you believe that it CAN be easy. From his explanations of different types of movements, to his 25 attributes to all-around fitness, his plan will get you moving, stronger, healthier, and ready to handle whatever our modern life may throw at you! I can't recommend this book enough!
Edwards naturally begins with a great, simple overview of the Paleo framework for diet, which only makes sense as all real health and weight loss begins with diet.
But the real treasure of this book is his workout program, full of full-body exercises that challenge fitness but also ensure that proper movement is the goal. And speaking of goals, goal-setting using the S.M.A.R.T. framework is the first portion of the fitness section, making sure that all fitness begins with the proper mindset.
Many of the exercises presented are familiar exercises, and many of them will be new to those who are new to the concept of movement-based exercise. The various groups of movement exercises are explained clearly, examples are given of ways to increase intensity on each exercise, and proper active rest is stressed (both between "sets" of exercises as well as active rest days). And a key component of the program is that FUN should be had at all times! Partner exercises are given their important section as well - increasing the fun factor.
The programs in the book start at a basic level, and increase in intensity and difficulty at a very good pace. There's nothing too hard here for a beginner, and there is plenty of variety and intensity to keep a person interested on an ongoing basis.
I would be more than comfortable handing this book out as a primer to Paleo fitness to anyone, as it contains both the basic concepts and a wonderful program for getting one's self into great shape from the standpoint of both movement fitness and general preparedness.
Definitely good value for money, even if you only want the recipes, all which I'd never seen before in 8 years of Paleo eating.
