Fit for life…naturally. That is the end game.

Hi, my name is Andrew Yskes [ice-kiss] and I'm a personal and group fitness trainer and lifestyle coach. I'm working on a new project and I need your help to help you and others to get fit for life.

What is Bear Essentials?

Real Motion's Bear Essentials Natural Movement Fitness is a training program based on natural movement that teaches the skills people need to get fit and stay fit for life. It is NOT a workout program…it is a skills training program.

With natural movement, you use only your body – no equipment is needed other than a fitness mat. It is based on the movement patterns we naturally did as children, like crawling and getting up and down, and also uses animal or primal movement patterns, like the bear crawl.

“Bear Essentials” is named after the animal, after the movement pattern, and also because it focuses on the bare essentials, or the foundations of fitness and movement.

Natural movement is great for fitness. It helps get you get stronger and you will develop lean muscle. It also takes a lot less time to do and you can do it anywhere, any time. You can do it as a regular workout, or do a few exercises here and there throughout the day. It's about working out smarter not harder.

I know there are many free fitness programs or workouts out there, some are good…but most assume you know what you are doing. Getting on a sweat with cardio or intensity is great, but not all the time, and not as the first place to start.

You should first learn the foundation skills you need to exercise without hurting yourself. This will help you get and stay strong for the rest of your life.

If you have already seen my Real Motion Workouts, you know I emphasize skill first, that is, doing an exercise correctly so you gain the full benefit of the exercise and avoid injury. This is still my focus with Bear Essentials.

Bear Essentials will give you the foundation skills and strength you need to be fit for life. Where you go from there is up to you.

The Bear Essentials program

The Bear Essential Natural Movement Fitness Program consists (will consist) of a series of short videos focusing on one skill or specific movement pattern at a time.

There are quite a few foundation skills and basic movement patterns to learn before we even get to the bear crawl and more challenging movement patterns. That means the series will go on for a while.

  • So far, I have 60+ videos planned.
  • Each video will range from 2 to 5 minutes, as some require a bit more instruction.

The goal for you, the patron and follower, is to learn the skills, one at a time, and grow in strength and ability so that when you get to the more challenging moves, you will have the ability and confidence to do them.

You will then have the foundation and strength to do any exercise program you want and the confidence to live a life with fewer limits.

The pitch – I need your support

Helping people be strong and healthy is a passion of mine, and I ask you to join me.

With your patronage, I will produce an ongoing series of natural movement and other functional fitness training videos for you to follow.

I will post a new one every week or two. I might even take your suggestions or questions and create a video to address a specific need.

First, watch the introduction Patreon pitch video. Then, watch the general introduction to the Real Motion Bear Essentials program. Next, sponsor me and this project. 

Finally, when the videos posted, watch and practice the skill and movements.

Patreon sponsorship structure

You can support me in a few ways:

  • Bear Support – Contribute $1 or $2 per month because you think what I am doing is great and you want to support my efforts, but you don’t want to follow the program.
  • Become the Bear – For $3 per month you get access to all the Bear Essentials videos here.
  • The Bear Club – When you join the Club for $10 per month, you'll get a full subscription to my Real Motion channel with the Bear Essential videos and all the Real Motion Dumbbell and Real Motion Total Fit workout videos and training. Because of your additional support, you can email me with questions and suggestions. After 6 months, you'll get a Bear Essentials t-shirt as a thank you.

Thanks for your patronage. Together, we can be fit for life.

A bit of history

I became a trainer in my late 40s after getting back into shape. One of my challenges as a middle-aged guy with some injuries was figuring out the best way to get fit. With some effort, I did it, and thought others could benefit from what I learned.

Out of that journey I created the Real Motion™ Workouts a few years ago because I saw a huge gap in the fitness industry – most fitness videos or programs are geared for young people or they promise magical results.

I am not young, most of the people I train are not young, and there is no magic pill to fitness, just time and effort.

Fitness beginners and older adults are often left out of the fitness market. The skills training of how to exercise correctly and safely is also lacking. That is why I created the Real Motion workouts with how-to instructions.

  • Go to www.realmotionworkout.com to find out more about the Real Motion Dumbbell and Total Fit workouts – you can buy the DVDs or subscribe online.

After this, I continued to explore other areas of functional fitness and discovered the wonderful world of natural movement. This is one area of fitness that everyone, regardless of age, can benefit from – and that includes you.

Do you support indie musicians? Do you like electronica music?

When I created my Real Motion Workouts, I commissioned Erica Van Drunen, from the group Seven Suns, to create workout music for the project.

I think its great music, and I am sure you will like it too.

You can check out Erica’s music, Aqua Dreams, on the Real Motion Workout website. www.realmotionworkout.com/aqua-dreams.html

If you like it, please order the Aqua Dreams CD. Erica makes her money from CD sales. You can download the music from i-Tunes, but Erica only gets pennies.

I might have some of her music playing in the background of the Bear Essential videos, but it won’t be a focus.

Thanks again,
Andrew
