175: Darryl Edwards On Movement, Health, And The Fight For Social Justice

Read more

It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Dr. Cole is taking a few weeks off so today Jimmy is joined by Primal Play creator Darryl Edwards.

“When we first met Crossfit and others were popular, focusing on elite athletes. I connected with your work because you focused on people like me, regular people.”

– Jimmy Moore

“One of the downsides of this aspirational attitude on social media is that we only see success and not the real-life struggles that people have.”

– Darryl Edwards

After almost two decades working as a technologist in investment banking, and suffering from chronic lifestyle disease, Darryl Edwards from PrimalPlay.com transformed his health after adopting an ancestral model to well-being. Darryl now advises people on maintaining a healthy lifestyle – amidst the epidemic of obesity and other chronic lifestyle diseases. As the founder of the PRIMAL PLAY methodology, he makes functional fitness activity fun, effective and engaging while getting individuals healthier, fitter and stronger in the process. He specializes in working with children from 4 to 94 – fitness for those who hate to exercise – as well as for those who love it but relish a new challenge.

Listen in today as Jimmy and Darryl talk about staying healthy while locked down during this pandemic, as well as Darryl’s thoughts on the current state of race relations.

#117 Why Black Lives Matter with Darryl Edwards

Read more

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains themes of an adult nature.

Darryl Edwards – aka The Fitness Explorer – was one of the very first guests to appear on this podcast, all the way back on episode 7. He is someone who is passionate about promoting movement that is fun and playful. But that’s not why I invited Darryl back to talk to me on this episode.

If there’s a thread that runs through all my podcasts, it’s that empathy and compassion are essential to feeling better and living more – and that’s more important now than ever. This episode was recorded 10 days after George Floyd lost his life in Minneapolis, US, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement rose up in response. 

I talk to Darryl about his experiences growing up in the UK with black skin. He was born in the UK but his grandparents came here from Jamaica in the early 1950’s. Whilst Darryl is a leading light in the wellness industry, he’s also one of the few black faces. And perhaps, until now, we haven’t thought enough about why. 

Darryl has an in-depth knowledge of black history and in today’s conversation, he takes us back to the very origins of the transatlantic slave trade, the ‘social construct of race’, and dehumanisation of African people in the late 14th century. He describes how, far from being a US-only problem, transatlantic slavery was introduced by Europeans throughout the world and capitalised upon by the British. He explains how racism didn’t end with the abolition of the slave trade but continued through systemic laws of suppression, oppression, colonisation and segregation. I’m really grateful to Darryl for distilling what he knows into a form that we can all understand and act on. 

He shares shocking examples of racism he’s experienced, from playground bullying through overt workplace discrimination to the fact that, as a black man, the police have pulled him over while driving at least 100 times, including at gunpoint. Whether this is an experience you share or one you can only contemplate with horror, the question we are all asking now is how should we respond. Darryl and I discuss how all of us, not just the black community, have a responsibility to internalise racism and think ‘that could have been me’. Empathy and compassion surely have to be part of the solution.

Can something positive come from the tragic death of George Floyd? Perhaps, if those of us now listening, engaging and learning go out into the world and demand change. ‘Our window of discussion has extended,’ says Darryl. ‘Please listen to us.’ This conversation is a very good place to start.

Fitness Hacks and Movement Snacks – with Darryl Edwards

Read more

This week, Angela is in conversation with Darryl Edwards, otherwise known as The Fitness Explorer, the founder of Primal Play, a company founded on the mission to “change lives through play”, and the bestselling author of ‘Animal Moves’

This is a fascinating episode in which Darryl shares some incredible advice designed to get your metabolism flowing, and to keep you fit, without the pressure on, and reliance of, regular exercise sessions. Darryl’s entire approach is about keeping you moving throughout the day, and it all begins with a concept called “Movement Snacks”...


  • Exercise is a modern construct developed to supplement the lack of physical activity in our day-to-day lives. Exercise has become a far more important way, to modern humans, to achieve the sense of locomotion and physical activity we need in a given timeframe.
  • Even if you are exercising for around sixty minutes per day, if you’re sitting for multiple hours, this can undermine any of the effects of your physical activity.
  • Darryl calls his prompts for movement, “movement snacks”; small ways in which we can force ourselves to move more, and by doing so, create a constant impetus to abstain from being sedentary. Some of the best and most simple ways of doing this are:
    • Drink more water. This can force you to take more toilet breaks. And use a toilet on a different floor.
    • When you’re on the phone, make sure you’re not sat down.
    • Instead of meetings at a table, why not walk and talk?
    • Walk to work if you can do so
  • We are constantly told to avoid foods that cause spikes in insulin, but nature has given us another way of managing this: physical activity, which causes muscle contraction.
  • When you are hungry, your body will force you to eat. When you are tired, your body will force you to sleep. But nothing will force you to exercise. By exercising, we are becoming far more proactive than we sometimes realise.
  • Feel-good hormones are generally associated with physical activity. This is why exercise is so often recommended as a way to combat depression.
  • The word “exercise” itself, and even the phrases associated with it, such as “no pain no gain”, carry with them negative, painful connotations. This is partly the reason why so many are instantly, psychologically switched off when it comes to exercise.
  • 75% of UK children have less time out side than prison inmates. 1 in 7 UK children have never spent time in an outdoor space. Lethargic activity, such as technology-based interactions are driving a surge in health problems in the next generations, and needs to be addressed.
  • Adult play, the gamification of exercise for adults seeking to keep active, is difficult to maintain. To keep it going, Darryl recommends:
  • Download Darryl’s free eBook ‘On The Importance Of Play’ (available on the Primal Play website)
  • By becoming more playful, you will automatically think of more ideas for movement
  • Engage with the activities created by Darryl on Primal Play, which will help you to engage your creativity
  • When engaging in social activity, your effort is naturally increased, but also your endorphins are greatly increased by engaging in physical activity with someone else, especially when it’s rhythmic.


‘2000 years ago there was no need to exercise’

‘It’s about integrating your day with movement’

‘I wanted to know why. What does it do at a biological level; at a physiological level?’

‘Movement is medicine’

’The process is what’s important, not the outcome’

’There are so many obstacles in the younger generation’s way’

‘Endorphins are released immediately with play; not at the end’
