Learning is scary. Whether it’s a new subject or movement skill, to learn something new means putting yourself out there with a 100% guarantee that you will make a mistake.

But when it comes to movement, there can be an added layer of fear – what happens if I get hurt? My guest today knows all about going with the flow AND how to do it in a progressive and totally safe way.

I’m joined by Mike Fitch, fitness educator, movement coach and founder of Global Bodyweight Training and Animal Flow.

What I enjoyed most about my conversation with Mike is that he 1) is a huge body (and anatomy) nerd and 2) is a master at distilling how to learn new movement skills in a step-by-step way.

So if you’ve ever been tempted to try a new workout or just want to learn new skills without feeling like a dweeb – today’s episode is for you!
