The Naked Runners
The Naked Runners are two Professional Health Enthusiasts on a mission to change the world. On the left is Silas 'Mossy' Moss (Exercise Scientist) and to the right is Dave 'Robbo' Robertson (Physiotherapist).
The Naked Running Movement
The Naked Runners are leading the movement about more movement.
The mission of The Naked Runners is to provide a range of services & support to help make running fun!
We think running should be less about how far & how fast, and more about high fives & headbands!
It's time to ditch the modern distractions of heart rate monitors, headphones & heel-striking, and uncover the secret to running 'naked'!
What we offer the world is elevated levels of enthusiasm for running & connecting with people which breathes life into a mixture of Videos, Keynote Speaking, Workshops, Event Promotion, Podcast and Blogs.
See you for a run soon...!
What's in the name?
The named has been designed to capture people's attention and to bring running into the conversation.
The word 'naked' implies that it is free and with no constraints, just as nature intended. It's also a bit 'cheeky' and provocative as well, which may reflect the persona of both Robbo and Mossy.
The word 'runners' indicates it's all about the group or tribe. This is a movement of more people moving more often! We are all Naked Runners if we choose to be.
The Lore of Naked Running
Naked Running is about stripping back the experience, allowing you to embrace the art and the science of nature's gift of natural running. When you run naked, you will look better, feel better, and perform better.
So to avoid becoming a slave to the run, get back to a minimalist approach that will reconnect you with the world and provide you with maximal pleasure and optimal performance.
The 7 Lores of Naked Running
1. Wear clothes: most societies have laws around this stuff, we advise you obey them
2. Ditch the distractions: pretend like your running through the worst part of town, leave all your valuable gadgets in the sanctity of your home (this includes, but not limited to, your Ipod, watch, phone, heart rate monitor, metronome, GPS, or guitar tuner). This is also referred to as stripping it back.
3. Get in tune: with your body and reconnect with others and the world around you.
4. Ready to run: always have running gear with you so at any stage you can seize the moment and go for a run.
5. Spread the word: try to talk about running often as you are a marketing for this natural wonder.
6. Think active thoughts: always look for the opportunity to move your body as opposed to seeing it as an inconvenience.
7. Try active transport: replace moving by machine with your own body as often as you can.
