Your body is built to move and if you're not giving it what it needs you're not counteracting the effects of the technology-dependence and sedentary living that come with our modern way of life.

After decades spent working with pro-athletes and Olympians, mobility pioneers Kelly and Juliet Starrett began thinking about the physical wellbeing of the rest of us. What makes a durable human? How do we continue to feel great and function well as we age?

The answers lie in a simple formula for basic mobility maintenance: 10 tests + 10 physical practices = 10 ways to make your body work better.

Organised around ten assessments and ten physical practices that anyone can do, Built to Move is designed to improve the way your body feels - less stiffness! fewer aches and pains! - and boost the overall quality of your life, no matter how you spend your time.

This book is your game plan for the long game.

Industry Reviews
Built to Move is a game-changer. Most fitness books stop at the proverbial gym door; the Starretts crash through that door and show that the most important work for better health happens outside the gym.

Whether you are a professional athlete, a serious weekend warrior, or, like most people, just trying to fit it in, Juliet and Kelly are there every step of the way.

Built to Move is a must-read for anyone with a body - that is to say, you. It changed how I live my life, and I'm better for it. It'll do the same for you.

Built to Move is the definitive guide for building an all-around healthy and high-performing body and mind. What makes Built to Move so valuable is not just the extensive real-world experience that went into formulating the protocols it describes, or the rigorous peer-reviewed scientific studies those protocols are based on, but its elegant simplicity. Built to Move makes exactly clear what we all need to do, and when, and how, so that anyone can reach their health goals, regardless of current fitness, income level, or life demands. [This] should be (self-) assigned reading for anyone looking to enhance their mental or physical health and performance.

Every time my body asks, 'What did you do to me?' I go to the Starretts for answers. They've opened my eyes to simple and astonishingly effective approaches to back pain, hamstring pulls, and sore Achilles tendons. Now they're offering my personal dream come true - a way to get ahead of the injuries before they happen.

Juliet and Kelly Starrett have given you a detailed, accessible road map to help you move through life feeling better, stronger, and more confident than you ever imagined, no matter where you're starting from. There is no body this book will not revolutionize.

The Starretts are the epitome of what a Spartan is. I LOVE that they are so focused on mobility. Maintain mobility and you'll be able to do anything. Built to Move is an amazing book.

Through practices that are engaging, introspective, and fun-yes fun!-Built To Move is the roadmap we have been waiting for that will revive what has always been your most valuable birthright: to move your body with confidence, pride, and play.
