This week, in the first interview on the LYOF podcast, I have an incredible guest, with an even more incredible story. Chris Jones has influenced my friends, my family, and myself with his very holistic approach to health and performance through his business Primal Movement, and he also has a near death story of survival after a very large tree fell on him in a remote area of NSW while on Christmas holidays in 2017.
Chris is a certified Chek Practioner level 2 and Chek Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level 2, with 14 years experience in the industry helping people achieve goals and improve their lives. Primal Movement is a large private studio gym on the northern beaches of Sydney, where Chris and his team coach, consult, and workout.
I can’t thank Chris enough for giving his precious time and energy to have this chat in between his rehabilitation sessions at Primal Movement, when I visited my hometown of Sydney.
As you’ll hear, Chris also talks openly about his very traumatic experience of being crushed under a tree for hours, and the journey of recovery and discovery he has been on, and still going through. It is a true reflection of his personable and honest nature that he was so giving to myself and everyone else listening in.
We talk about how Chris survived being crushed by a tree for 2 hours before being freed, with unimaginable pain and pressure on his shattered pelvis and stomach. The mindset skills and strength that Chris has developed over a lifetime of team sports and teaching about the body and mind connection to his clients was a major factor, as well as the state of health and strength which he had when this happened through his own practice of what he teaches. He advocates a truly holistic approach to complete wellness and resilience in life, and my sister can attest as she is one of Chris’s endless success stories of improving everything from posture, weight, sugar cravings, improved food choices (in taste and health benefits), strength, aches, sleep, energy, outlook on life and “gyms” and “diets”…the list is endless.
How Chris survived the many months in hospital afterward, along with his incredibly speedy recovery after such trauma to his body, is testament to how good nutrition matters. We chat about how he didn’t touch the hospital food, ate incredibly nutritious food and supplements, and how everyone in his community looked after him with the best of everything to help him recover and become strong again.
Primal Movement is in Brookvale, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, and I highly recommend you go and meet Chris if you want to get healthier and more capable in your everyday life, just as I recommended my sister go there and it has changed her life.
