Built to Move: Ten Physical Practices to Help You Lead Your Best Life
From ever-growing technology dependence to sedentary desk jobs, it seems that modern day society has forgotten about our body’s need for purposeful physical movement. Not to mention, stiffness and physical aches and pains are something that we all deal with as we age. As much as we might want to work exercise into our daily routine, sometimes even a walk around the block puts too much stress on our already overwhelming daily lives. Kelly and Juliet Starrett draw on their extensive expertise from training Olympic athletes and first responders to present audiences with ten practical habits for helping your body move better, that can be easily implemented into even the busiest schedules. This talk can be refined to speak to employees of major corporations, healthcare workers, teachers, caregivers, or general community members of all ages.

Built to Move
“Built to Move is the definitive guide for building an all-around healthy and high-performing body and mind. What makes Built to Move so valuable is not just the extensive real-world experience that went into formulating the protocols it describes, or the rigorous peer-reviewed scientific studies those protocols are based on, but its elegant simplicity. Built to Move makes exactly clear what we all need to do, and when, and how, so that anyone can reach their health goals, regardless of current fitness, income level, or life demands. [This] should be (self-) assigned reading for anyone looking to enhance their mental or physical health and performance.”
—Andrew Huberman, Professor of Neuroscience, Stanford University & Host of The Huberman Lab Podcast
