No matter your financial background, age, or occupation, Built to Move is designed to be your lifelong companion and your guide to optimal wellness.
After decades spent working with professional athletes, Olympians, and Navy Seals, mobility pioneers Kelly and Juliet Starrett began thinking about the physical well-being of the rest of us. What makes a durable human? How do we continue to feel great and function well as we age? And how do we counteract the effects of technology-dependence, sedentary living, and other modern ways of life on our body’s natural need for activity?

•  Longevity-promoting nutrition and sleep tips
•  Targeted breathing exercises for stress and pain management
•  A proven roadmap to healthy aging in the age of unhealthy conveniences
Whether you’re 20, 50, or 70, completely new to mobility work or a professional athlete, a self-proclaimed health nut or just diving into the world of performance optimization for the first time – these practices will work for you. And the best part? They are so simple, and so easy to fit into any schedule or budget, that anyone can start at any time, no preparation needed!
If you want greater ease of movement, better health, and a happier life doing the things you love to do—and the things you want to continue doing as long as you live, what are you waiting for? This book is your game plan for the long game.
