Primal Play Logo

Level 1 is the two-day intensive introductory course for fitness professionals who want to become Certified Primal Play Movement Coaches or for fitness enthusiasts who want to take their fitness to the next level.

This course is where you can learn this incredibly useful movement practice taking the steps to becoming a Certified Coach. Groups numbers are kept relatively small to ensure an optimal pupil-to-teacher ratio. This two-day event is 09:00 am-4:00 pm on Wednesday and Thursday.

Primal Play Method classes are designed to provide an enhanced learning environment for attendees; transforming individuals with quadrupedal and animal-based movement using elements from diverse disciplines, including play theory, martial arts and callisthenics to create fun and functional workouts.

You’ll learn much more than just a series of movement patterns and games though – you’ll learn how to effectively coach others in this method and will better understand primal, powerful and practical movement. You will learn how to improve your and your clients’ fitness no matter how you integrate Primal Play into your training.

The workshop may include both indoor and outdoor instruction.


Content includes:

  • An introduction to the Primal Play Method™ brand;

  • Instruction on healthy, primal and functional movement;

  • Learn basic anatomy & functional movements of muscles and joints;

  • An introduction to play theory and research;

  • Learn to move with power, strength and grace with locomotion inspired by the animal kingdom;

  • Learn breathing techniques to improve strength and master mindful movement;

  • Improve communication and motivational skills;

  • Learn fun solo, partner and group-based Primal Play™ activities;

  • A guide to setting up Primal Play™ classes;

  • Understand the Primal Play™ Teaching model, including correct and safe techniques;

  • Learn how to scale and adapt training to suit the individuals taking part;

  • The basics of the movement prescription required for optimal health and longevity.


Primal Play™ is a great way to add more options to your movement toolbox - it will get you exploring and expressing challenging physical activities but also get you to have lots of fun while doing it.

Primal Play™ can be used as a complete workout solution or used as part of your existing regimen including strength training, interval or cardio training and requires no equipment.

Participants will take part in fun solo, partner and group-based Primal Play™ activities and learn how to teach them.

Primal Play Group Activities


To become a Certified Primal Play™ Movement Coach, you must pass the live practical assessment after completing the workshop. Just finishing the two-day workshop will not make you certified – to make sure all coaches meet the program’s standards, you’ll need to demonstrate necessary competence via video submission after the workshop.
