- Increased bone mineral density
- Improved connective tissue structure and function
This e-course is the ultimate resource for not only making rapid body composition changes and improving your health overall, but also for improving your Natural Movement skillset so that you can engage with the world more easily, effortlessly, and with more joy.
To help you rapidly improve your fitness, body composition, and movement skills in 8 weeks or less.
“You've seen 'The Workout the World Forgot' on YouTube and you get it - Natural Movement forges human fitness - but how do you capture that and execute it in modern life if you don't live off-grid in a tropical paradise? How do you build that capability as a Zoom-bound, 'zoo-human'? The new MovNat® Metabolic e-course distills the essence of Natural Movement Fitness into an easy-to-follow, don't-even-have-to leave-the house, get-ridiculously-fit way, while holding to the broader vision of holistic fitness- that breathwork is strengthwork and vise versa, that there is no true fitness at the sacrifice of joint health and mobility, and that fitness means you are always ready for a physically intense effort should the need arise. No matter where you are starting from, this program is adaptable to meet you at your current fitness level and then go beyond it! All you need to do is show up and do the work.”
“Who am I? I’m Serena. I’m not a fitness trainer. I’m not an athlete. I’ve never been sporty or competitive. I’m quite average. For a long time now, I’ve believed that it is important to know how to move and control your own body to maintain quality of life, but I have never known how to make it happen. I’ve taken the classic fitness routes that everyone has heard before. I’ve paid for multiple gym memberships that I hardly ever used. I’ve tried yoga classes, spin classes, and kickboxing classes. Whatever it was, it never stuck and never made a difference in the quality of my function. It was all very disappointing.
Since MovNat became a staple in my life, I have been consistently surprised by how much easier it is to move through the world. I am able to complete my daily tasks with an ease that still continues to surprise me. There are things that I have done dozens of times before that suddenly, just magically, almost out of nowhere, feel easier to do. I built the strength to do pull-ups without ever specifically practicing pull-ups. One day, I slipped and fell on ice on my way into work in the middle of the winter. My arms were full from holding coffee and folders. I popped right back up without needing my hands even slightly. I actually didn’t even notice it happened until someone asked me if I was ok. I’ve noticed that my back doesn’t hurt anymore, because I learned how to bend at my hips. Funny enough, I didn’t previously realize my back was hurting until MovNat fixed it. I was just humming about totally unaware that I had a continuous tension along my spine. I’ve had multiple people (at the gym and at work) ask me if I trained in gymnastics because of the way I walk. It’s hard for me to see it myself, but I’m told that I “walk tall”, which is a huge accomplishment for someone who stands at 5’0’’!
Ever since MovNat became a part of my lifestyle, the world has gotten easier. I have better control over my own body and I can feel it strengthening my spirit. I’m happier. So, here I am. MovNat has been in my life for about 10 months. I have been officially training with my MNOC coach, Seth, for about 6 months. I’ve worked consistently and I’ve worked hard and I’ve loved every moment of it. Now you can find me in the MovNat Metabolic videos. I’m no expert, but I am just like you. I’m training and I’m learning. I hope you have fun following along with the videos and enjoy watching me do my best. You can laugh, if you like. It’s good to smile. ☺”
The MovNat curriculum normally focuses on skill building first, and conditioning or fitness second. In MovNat Metabolic, we've taken the opposite approach; putting the emphasis on fitness first, but not at the expense of skill development. In this program, we've paired some of the most effective fitness protocols for the most commonly desired adaptations (e.g. fat loss, muscle building, etc.) with some of the most effective natural movements for improving fitness. The end result is a unique, movement-rich exercise program focused on practical skills that enhance fitness naturally.
“Wow. I’ve been physically fit for as long as I can remember, or at least I thought so before I started using this MovNat Metabolic program. This is hands-down the most thoughtful and precise approach to TOTAL body conditioning from the ground up I’ve ever experienced. At first I actually skipped ahead thinking that I was more of an intermediate student and boy was I humbled by the need to have precision technique. I think I was just moving my body without real mindfulness or paying attention to my breathing. Seriously, I went back to day one and worked the program how it was intended and what do you know… It works! I’ve learned how to link my movements together by thinking of my body as a useful and powerful machine and I'm really pushing myself harder now than I would just following another “shred your body” predesigned workout. It’s hard to imagine that an extra 15 seconds in Month 2 rounds could be so challenging, you’ll love it. I feel more physically aware now, more fit and stronger by a mile (which is crazy because I didn’t even use a dumbbell, mostly just my own body, a piece of wood, a rock and a tree) and I feel like there’s no end to progressing because these are all natural movements! So thanks MovNat for training me like a champion even as I’m #fitover50.”
“The MovNat Metabolic program is a fantastic way to get my clients started with Natural Movement. It is easy to follow along, fulfills the goal of physiological transformation while not neglecting or omitting the MovNat principles of practical, real world fitness. For years the predominant image of MovNat was people running around in the woods without shirt, which might seem romantic to some, but is intimidating, or simply inconvenient to others. With the introduction of the Metabolic program MovNat has achieved another level of accessibility for those that want to achieve a better metabolic rate and body transformation, while at the same time preparing for, and improving movement quality and complexity. The movements themselves are simple enough to go to a high number of repetitions, yet complex enough to address and improve stability, mobility and motor control. Some of the sitting movements for instance - especially when loaded - have helped many of my clients improve their hip function, while the dynamic work on the bar has drastically improved shoulder function for them. Both of those essential to spine health, to a pain free life and as a preparation for any athletic activity. If you are looking for ways to start (or continue) moving holistically, while also working on body transformation; when your space is confined, or you live in a place where the weather is less than inviting; if you are just starting with Natural Movement and you’d like an easily accessible course, or if you are a trainer and you want your clients to get a taste before diving deeper...then this course is for you.”
“The Metabolic e-course is MovNat's online offering that is focused on delivering a challenging workout. Previous e-courses have emphasized building a strong foundation, or getting a grasp of the MovNat curriculum. Until now, there was no online courses designed to really focus on the "fitness" application.
The videos in this ecourse are easy to follow. They include clear instruction, yet not too much explanation, and remains very interactive throughout. Danny will start you with a brief warm up and cool down including breathing, and ground movement transitions for mobilization before moving on to the 30 minute workout of the day.
These sessions involve various Natural Movement techniques aimed at a higher intensity energy output to get the cardiovascular system stimulated. Danny introduces numerous ways to approach training and putting workouts together to reveal the potential depth that the most simple movements and exercises can hide. The goal seems to be to challenge yourself, but also to prioritize listening to your body and tapering your intensity so that you don't have to sacrifice efficiency or safety to feel like you have pushed your limits.
One thing that I appreciate about this course is the inclusion of short movement tutorial videos under a minute long. There are also quick demonstrations of each technique of the workout at the beginning of each video. This makes it easy for me to repeat these workouts without having to watch the whole video every time or skim through to what I need to see.
Something that Danny said in one of the sessions was that "There's a time to tune in, and there's a time to just go." and that really spoke to me. The other e-courses deeply emphasize the "time to tune in" aspect very well. Conversely, the Metabolic e-course really hits the nail on the head when it comes "time to just go". "Tuning in" is necessary to refine technique, but "just going" is how you test what you have built so far.
So if you're looking to get your heart rate going, test your movements, level up your fitness endurance, and break a sweat with a well thought out online course that is well worth the cost, I would have to recommend the MovNat Metabolic e-course.”
“I'm stronger, more flexible and more agile than I was at 30, I'm 52 now. I do things I never knew I was capable of. And my body is looking better than ever before. And the fun I get from the moments is incredible. Love it. I'm super happy and I'm surprised how good I feel. I feel I'm getting younger instead of older.”
“Movnat has changed my life completely. It opened all the doors and destroyed all the boxes that confined me in my health and fitness. I have more freedom in my body, and mind and see the world in a different way. My life is more full, and my daily experience richer because of Movnat. I feel better and move better than ever before and have more creativity in terms of movement and workouts.”
“I know I have gained physical fitness from MovNat but the most impactful has been my mind. I feel more productive and more effective. There is purpose in what I’m doing that goes beyond ‘looking’ fit and, at 46 and nearly 26 years of training... that is a gift. I’ll be climbing trees in my 80s! So happy. Really cannot express adequately how freeing this method is.”
Having taught thousands of people in person, we're now delivering that experience online.
What exactly will I receive when I order?
You will receive instant access to the whole program via a private e-course portal, which contains all the course materials. This includes all six MovNat classes (follow along videos), 20 movement instructional videos, warmup and cooldown instructional videos, a training guide (e-book), and other supplementary materials to help us serve you better. In total, there is roughly 4 hours of footage in this course.
Note: You will have lifetime access to the e-course. So, you can go through it whenever you'd like and however many times you'd like. You will NOT receive a physical package in the mail since this product is in digital format that can be viewed on your computer, smart phone, tablet, etc. The videos are only available in streaming format (i.e. they are not downloadable).
What Natural Movement skills will I learn?
You'll learn several natural movements from the following domains: Breathing, Ground Movement, Get Ups, Crawling, Balancing, Gait, Jumping, Lifting, Carrying, Throwing, and Climbing.
What if I’m old, out of shape, injured, or can't perform some of the movements?
This course was designed to be accessible for all fitness levels, ages, and abilities. In fact, it’s very well suited for those who don't consider themselves “exercisers” and/or are looking for a totally different perspective on movement and fitness. This course is truly for everyone since Natural Movement is the base of ALL movement. So, even if you're old, overweight, out of shape, and totally inexperienced with Natural Movement, if you're healthy enough to exercise, you can use this program.
How long does this program take?
This e-course is designed to be completed over eights weeks, and repeated as your skill and fitness improves. Each class lasts for roughly 30 minutes, with additional time recommended for warmups and cooldowns. For the first week or so, you may need a little more time to review the instructional videos and practice the movements, but your total training time should be less than 45 minutes per session, three times per week.
Can I do this along with other physical training?
Absolutely! But if you are not highly conditioned, you may want to refrain from other intense exercise. Please review the Training Guide for additional activity recommendations.
Do I need any equipment?
This e-course was designed to be very minimal in required equipment, but you'll need a few things to get the most out of it: some open floor or ground space, objects to lift and carry (light to moderately heavy loads, e.g. backpack, kettlebell, etc.), a surface for climbing (e.g. pull-up bar or tree branch), a surface for balancing (e.g. 2x4 board or tape on the floor), and a surface for jumping up and down on (e.g. box, sturdy furniture, etc.).
Luckily, there are many things which may already exist in your home that can be setup to provide the environment you need. We've included a module in the e-course with suggestions for training at home or the gym.
You’ll also need a computer or mobile device that can connect to the internet and stream video.
What if I am unhappy with this course?
We have a 30-day money back guarantee policy. So, if you're not happy with your investment, contact us (email@example.com) within the first 30 days of your purchase and we'll send you a full refund.
Will this actually help me get in shape?
It depends on what you mean by "in shape." But you can bet your boots it will provide the necessary stimulation for fat loss, lean muscle gain, increased mobility and flexibility, and cardiorespiratory capacity, among other body composition and conditioning adaptations. And we think you'll know how powerful this program is after your very first session; and especially as you transition into Month 2, where the intensity increases substantially. That said, it's all about what you put into it. The harder you work, the better your results. So, please use the Training Guide to adjust the program difficulty based on your current fitness level and desired goals. And if you need some extra help, we're here to help you get it just right.
What is the difference between MovNat Metabolic and our other e-courses?
There are many significant differences stemming from the fact that MovNat Metabolic is an action-oriented, purpose-driven e-course to help you achieve the specific objective of better health, fitness and body composition. So, there's very little focus on teaching about the big picture of Natural Movement. Instead, MM is a simple follow-along exercise program focused on fitness first, and movement skills second - and doing the work to help you transform your body MovNat-style. At a fraction of the price of our other e-course offerings, it's also our highest value e-course and a great entry point into the MovNat system for people who are looking for an affordable alternative to conventional exercise.
“Since Day 1 of me following MovNat, back in 2011, I was fascinated by the level of "fitness” of my mentors, Erwan Le Corre and Vic Verdier. Yes, I was impressed by their capability, their movement abilities through nature, in any type of environment and situation. But I couldn’t ignore also how strong, shredded and impressive they were looking, even in their 40’s and 50’s. And so, I knew from the very beginning that moving naturally would not only make me a capable human but also, boost my self-confidence by looking better than I’ve ever been (despite years of athletic endeavors). I embraced this method, and steadily reached higher levels of fitness, following the Certification levels and guided programming.
Now, 9 years later, this Metabolic e-course takes all the basic elements of what makes MovNat so unique, but on top of it, challenges you like never before with intervals, combos, ladders, finishers, etc all of this under the expert guidance, kindness, care and also push from Danny Clark. All the sessions throughout those 2 months of training show that you can use Natural Movement skills to build yourself strong, with endurance while making massive and visible physical gains. Danny’s extensive expertise in the Strength & Conditioning field as well as his rational structured mindset for training benefited MovNat over the last 5 years. And with this new e-course, you will really reap the benefits of those years in just a couple of months because of its efficiency and follow-along user experience.
HD video and sound quality, upbeat music during the hardest parts of the sessions, this e-course is once again delivered with very high quality standards. And with this low price, this is a no brainer that I would recommend it to anyone who wants to not only embrace the skill acquisition mindset of MovNat, but also to those who want a clear structure on how to get fitter with established benchmarks, expert guidance session after session and the perfect formula to prepare your body and mind to applying these skills in the real world, in nature.”
“The movement keeps growing! Another very useful resource from MovNat following the last 2 e-courses: Level 1 Fundamentals and Natural Movement Fundamentals. I thoroughly enjoyed this training as it combines the benefits of Natural Movement with a kick of some modern workout structures. I really enjoyed the variety of intensity in the course.
The MovNat Metabolic course is applicable to anyone who is either already into Natural Movement and wants to increase their strength and conditioning or someone interested in starting their practice and improving fitness. For those that have been doing the previous e-courses, this is a great step forward in increasing the intensity of the skills you’ve learned and putting them into very efficient workouts. If you’re just starting out with your Natural Movement journey, you’ll still be able to follow along and go at your own pace.Even if you’re well conditioned from other training, the Metabolic course will still challenge you in areas you may not be focusing on in your current activity.
Many training programs might highlight the benefit of “functional” training, but with MovNat the emphasis is placed on Practicality. Movements that carry over from the gym into day to day life and that we have done through our evolution. Getting up off the ground, lifting, carrying, jumping and hanging are all covered in this online course. You’ll get detailed video instruction for your workouts as well as all the techniques used. You may have some of the equipment required, but if not, the investment shouldn’t be too big and the workouts can be done inside or outside. Another benefit I really like is being able to stop, pause and rewind anything you’re viewing, plus you can take the course with you when you’re traveling and continue training almost anywhere.
The MovNat Metabolic course is a highly recommended investment and you should find the workouts fun, engaging, scalable and of course Natural :)”

“MovNat’s new Metabolic eCourse is an up-beat, challenging workout for anyone who is looking to push themselves to their limits. At the same time, you can set your own pace in the comfort of your own home. I find it hard to not go all-out when I follow this eCourse, because the energy and exercises are so fun. I really like how thorough the warm up is, and how quickly I break a sweat. MovNat Metabolic feels very efficient in getting me past my comfort zone, yet I still have a boost of energy after my workout has ended. One of the best parts about it is how simple the set up is. I don’t have a home gym, yet I could follow along all of the Natural Movements with simple household items (a chair, my laundry detergent bottle, a medium sized rock from my garden, etc.). The instructions on form and execution are very straightforward, and can be easily performed by a beginner or the seasoned athlete alike. I normally have a hard time pushing myself during high intensity workouts, but the instructors on-screen really help motivate me to kick it up a notch.”
“The MovNat® Metabolic e-course is a great primer for upping the levels of performance and fitness. The carefully chosen movement skills, lend well to the dynamic action of the sessions. With each movement being thoroughly described in their own tutorials. The warm ups and cool down are easy to follow along with and have great suggestions for props and variations. These MovNat® Metabolic sessions are well-guided and in real time. Danny Clark (MovNat Performance Director) takes a team of movers through multiple sessions of high-intensity, and highly practical, movement. If you follow along, and put in the work, you WILL meet your health and fitness goals.”
“I'm Elisabeth Pinheiro, Brazilian, physical therapist and MCT level 1 since 2018. The Movnat Metabolic Program, thanks to its stratification based on the construction of a solid Natural Movement base, allowed me to develop a unique rehabilitation program for my patients, based on development of body functional capacity, and not restricted to muscular strength improvements, like in conventional methods. I believe that the optimized capacity to develop pain-free movement is directly dependent on the strategic capacity of the brain, amplified by the variability of movement we are exposed to. This is for me the most significant differential of this program, a diversity of stimuli that makes us stronger and well-prepared. Personally, the MovNat method and its Metabolic Program allows me to know exactly what to work on, which makes my progression steady, with skill and strength & conditioning gains that are constant and daily. The program format is adaptable to any routine or environment. Challenges and limitations are all opportunities for improvement and growth, and the practice can be extended beyond a fixed hour of training. Every place and time is a new opportunity to explore new strategies of movement. I strongly recommend the MovNat Metabolic e-course for anyone who wants/needs to move better and feel great!*”
“There is nothing that I have ever experienced that is like a MovNat workout and the results of MovNat. MovNat has changed my life.”
“MovNat has help me to lose and keep off over 25lbs, and encouraged me to look for other ways to make positive changes in my life.”
“Massive increases in mobility, stability (core strength), movement quality, confidence and, perhaps most of all, enjoyment/fun.”
“MovNat was really helpful when I was training for obstacle course racing. I think I really surprised people how well I could move at my age/weight. The natural movements have also come in use in daily life, like helping to remove a fallen tree after a storm.”
“Awesome results! I'm slowly able to do some movements that I didn't think were possible a couple of months ago, but I'm also impatient and want to be able to do more haha.”
“My body looks better. I am more capable performing basic human movements. It is more fun to do physical labor and physical play. MovNat is more motivating because of the variety of practical movements with less equipment needed.”
“MovNat has been the key to regaining mobility, overcoming old injuries and exceeding previous plateaus. Having everything broken down into the smallest movements and then adding layer after layer of complexity has allowed me to far exceed my original goals of just being able to sleep and move comfortably, thanks!”
“I'm a captain with the Houston Fire Department and like the natural world; the emergency enviroment is extremely unpredictable. There was a time long ago when I had to talk myself into "working out"...especially when leg day rolled around. Movnat has completely revolutionized how I viewed human movement and fitness. Now, my body craves movement like one might crave coffee...ok I crave coffee too.”
“I thank MovNat for bringing joy back into “exercise” and for helping me work on my functional mobility. I don’t “go for walks” anymore; I look for fun opportunities to channel my inner kid again! Jumping onto and off of rocks, balancing on curbs and fallen trees, even doing the occasional cartwheel, has me smiling while I move my body the way nature intended all along. Considering my age and chronic injuries, I’m so thankful to have found MovNat two years ago. Regaining and growing my mobility and functional movement makes me very happy!”
“My body moves so much better since I trained with MovNat. My hips, ankles and feet are much stronger and more mobile. I used to have such tight calves and stiff ankles and MovNat improved them much more than 20 plus years of yoga did. Through MovNat, I discovered that increasing strength improves joint mobility much better than stretching does. I blend natural movement with yoga and the result is playful and fun. I especially love how much fun it is to play outside, whether on a playground on in the woods. MovNat changed my perspective - now anything I encounter could be a potential object to jump over, crawl under, or balance on.”
“Movnat has allowed me to keep progressing after being in a long plateau. I came in to the Movnat method with body awareness, but lots of rigidity and joint limitations that were not advancing. Movnat did a 180 degree change for me, allowed me to retake the fun aspects of training, allowed for play and introduced elements in my training that continued making those 1% changes that have led to accomplishing goals like my first pull up after more than 1 year of working towards that Goal. As a consequence I have also started to gain the looks :)”
“It’s been an inspiration that encouraged me to move again and restored my faith in fitness being more than just a selfish pursuit. The training has opened my mind to a different approach. I’m more aware of the abundance of opportunities to move outside a gym, have started to embrace working on weaknesses rather than ignoring or avoiding them and feel safer in the approach, more ok with taking it slow. The ecourses (fundamentals with Danny and Katy and L1 with Danny and Stephano) are amazing and pure joy to follow along with (not easy but so very well done!). I definitely have a ways to go and need to dig in more, adding more endurance and metabolic challenges as I start being more comfortable with the movements. You guys rock and I hope to someday meet some of you in person. Thank you!”
