Darryl Edwards, MSc. owner of Primal Play, is an international speaker, certified personal trainer, nutritional therapist, and award-winning author of Paleo Fitness and Paleo From A to Z. His work has been published in magazines including Men’s Fitness, Women’s Health, Paleo Magazine, Elle, Top Santé, as well as featured on the BBC and ABC in Australia and the documentary We Love Paleo. He was also nominated as Health Hero of the Year 2015 by Paleo f(x).
His journey with the Paleo lifestyle began over ten years ago when he had iron-deficiency anemia, hypertension, and 26 percent body fat. He felt weak and lethargic and suffered from insomnia along with debilitating lower back and knee pain. It didn’t take long after focusing on the Paleo approach to reap the benefits, and his improved health continues to this day.
Edwards is now a leading expert in the optimization of health and well-being, offering one-on-one and group-based consultations. As a recognition of the fact that physical inactivity is more detrimental to long-term health than other risk factors, he created the Primal Play Method to help people rekindle their love affair with exercise. He currently lives in London, England, and blogs about his experiences with the Paleo lifestyle at TheFitnessExplorer.com.
