Today, we talk with folks from the MovNat Level 3 Certification in Glorietta, NM, September 2021, about fitness, the broader idea of human movement, nature, culture, and being a good human animal. Joining us is Nate Smith, Nate Amado, Rock Hancock, Scott Southworth, and Mason Maas. Enjoy!

Nate Smith: "Nate was raised in the mountains of front range CO. With the state land as his backyard his interests were shaped quickly by the landscape and culture of his mountain community. Today he serves as a Sacred hunting guide, Movnat L3 instructor, lifestyle coach, and works part time in the outdoor industry to fuel his passion for skiing, rock climbing, and hunting. "

Rock Hancock: "Brian 'Rock' Hancock believes that exercise and physical activity should celebrate the body’s capabilities. As a Level 2 MovNat Certified Trainer and a Certified Health Coach, Rock has over 12 years experience working with various fitness backgrounds. He has assisted a range of clients, from the United States Marine Corps to those in corporate settings. He practices what he teaches. A look into his home would prove that a 2x4 sits in the living room for balance practice. His favorite natural movement skills are lifting, carrying, and jumping. In his free time, he loves cooking for his wife and sons."

Scott Southworth: "Scott is an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, MovNat Level 2 Trainer (working on Level 3!), and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. in his gym practice, he specializes in weight loss, strength training, bodyweight training, and back and joint pain. He believes that our bodies are meant to be extensions of ourselves. He comes from a background in wrestling and freerunning where he used his body to explore and define who he was as a person. Since then, he's gotten involved in obstacle course races, endurance challenges, rock climbing, and a host of other activities. His training focuses on preparing for what life might throw at us. Whether that’s sprinting up stairs so we don’t miss a flight, helping a family member move into their new place, or playing a pickup game of basketball, he believes in a useful type of fitness. He's been involved in fitness for thirteen years and professionally training others for over a decade. Everyday he makes it his goal to better himself and grow as a trainer just as he asks his clients to better themselves and move toward their goals every day."

Nate Amado: "Nate grew up a fairly weak and skinny kid, and having asthma didn’t help -- running out of breath trying to keep up with friends was discouraging. He didn’t feel strong, good at sports, or capable enough to defend himself (never mind others). He only played on a sports team once growing up, basketball in 3rd grade, and only made the free throws. It wasn't until his senior year in high school when he intently started pursuing new physical & mental challenges, starting out with high school wrestling. It was great, he won his first match or two, and got his ass handed to me for the rest of them. He loved it, and only wished he had started sooner. Later, when he discovered MovNat from the video "The Workout the World Forgot", he realized, 'THIS IS IT!' He felt that it was everything in one, the most complete system. He knew, right then and there, that this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. He went on to receive the MovNat Level 2 & Combatives Certifications (Mar & Jul 2016), The Human Path Scout Certification (Oct 2017), the Level 3 MovNat Certification (Oct 2017), a Purple Belt in BJJ (Dec 2017), the Primal Health Coaching Certification (Apr 2018), the MovNat Aquatics Certification (Sept 2018, officially earning all 5 MovNat certs and becoming a MovNat Master Trainer), the Gracie Combatives Belt Certification (twice - Jan & Jul 2020), and am currently on the path to becoming a certified Gracie Jiu Jitsu Instructor (July 2021), and a MeatRx Animal-Based Nutrition Coach (June 2021)."

Mason Maas: "Mason is currently studying for a Doctorate in Acupuncture, He has a Masters in Acupuncture and a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science. He is working on his MovNat Level 3 certification, but has earned his MovNat Level 2 Certification. He is also an NASM Master Trainer, a Corrective Exercise Specialist, and a Performance Enhancement Specialist."
