Tony Riddle – The Natural Life-Stylist: How To Reconnect With The Human Body

Tony Riddle is the British natural life-stylist, barefoot running pioneer, and endurance athlete.

His work seeks out ancient practices to reconnect us to our human biology, and his ‘Natural Lifestyle Coaching’ programme, teaches the necessity of breaking free, from what he calls our “zoo environment” in order to “re-wild our movement”.

Tony just completed running the entire length of the United Kingdom barefoot, an incredible 874 miles in 30 days, with a gruelling 57 miles on the final day.

The barefoot run was great and I love listening to Tony. but has anyone been following Anna Mcnuff… she’s 460 miles from finishing a 2600mile run around Great Britain Barefoot. There seems to be very little coverage on it. Hope you can get her on London Real

What a fab chat, thank you. I followed Tony’s progress on his LEJOG run and I was inspired to start barefoot running on my local beach and around the house and garden. The feet and ankles ached for a couple of weeks as they adapted to the change but it’s now comfortable. Never too late to start!

I think subtitles will help us understand it more. We appreciate the interviews.

I don’t see 4 people. Hugging 12 is a monumental challenge but I will use it as my north star

I absolute love that this discussion is happening. I’d love to describe exactly how when the hips lag, we heel strike, we eliminate the gluteal muscles from the gait cycle…which creates a huge front-to-back imbalance in the hips/pelvis (and thus the spine). We also eliminate the proper action of the foot, which is much like a spring coil when used properly. It’s been malformed into something more like a rocker on a rocking chair with splint-like shoes and heel striking. Our feet have become weak, narrow, and flattened. Rolling our plantar facia (and this elongating already elongated tissue) is exactly… Read more »
