It lights a fire under your ass and you couldn't blow it out if you wanted to. For us, it was meeting an elderly couple at a parking lot near a bike trail. Only this wasn't your average retired couple.
It was a beautiful Saturday morning. My wife and I had just unloaded our mountain bikes and were gearing up to hit the trail - when a white van pulled into the lot. It was one of those high roof vans with no windows on the sides - just a couple of mountain bikes strapped to the back of it. As the couple got out of the van, we couldn't help but notice their age. They had to be in their 70's!
My wife and I thought that was the coolest thing! To be that age and be healthy enough to just cruise around - wherever, whenever, and ride trails together like two kids. I mean seriously, how often do you see that? It was a first for us that's for sure.
As a healthy and active couple ourselves (me being 46 and my wife 39), meeting this couple was an inspiration to say the least. Your average person in their 70's couldn't do what they were doing - not by any means. These people didn't just take this activity up a few months ago - or a few years ago. Decades of healthy living, exercise and staying active is the reason why they were still living life to the fullest.
After that day my wife and I couldn't stop thinking about how we could touch people in a healthy way - in a way we wish our own folks were touched. How could we make it easier for people to live a healthy lifestyle? How could we educate the generations behind us - to spark them to lead healthy lifestyles too? How could we make it possible to spread the "healthy bug" - so more people could live life to the fullest in their golden years?
Fast forward to almost a year later and The Primal Kingdom is born! Wooohooo!!!
The one thing that all healthy people have in common is -they'll do whatever they can to help others get healthy. We're no different. If all goes as planned, seeing elderly people enjoying the great outdoors will be as common as seeing kids at a playground.
We believe it's a possibility...don't you?
