As hunter-gatherers, our bodies from the very start of humankind up until around 10,000 BC were developed by a natural path determined by the demands of wild landscapes, and the need to seize opportunities and avoid threats. To survive in this demanding environment full of obstacles and enemies our hunter-gatherer ancestors had to master many movements we take for granted. How to run was very important as you would imagine, but also how to walk, balance, climb, carry, crawl, jump, lift, throw and catch and also fight.
As a consequence of living in this demanding environment, we naturally gain strength, mobility, balance, and fitness.
When the agricultural revolution started around 10,000 – 8,000 BC, the physical activities of man changed dramatically. Raising cattle and growing foods were mainly repetitive chores and needed less range of movements, so the variety of complex movements – running, jumping, balancing, crawling and climbing greatly diminished.
Thousands of years later when the great civilizations started to rise, the Babylonians, Egyptians, Persians and later on the Greeks and Romans all imposed physical fitness and training on boys and young men. This was for the purpose of preparing for the battle of course.
Since early man, we have known the benefits of being fit and healthy, but this was mainly for survival. But it around 200 years ago that we had essentially the pioneers of what we would recognize today as “physical fitness”. Frederick Jahn, known as the “father of gymnastics” spread his idea throughout Europe and America. He taught a combination of gymnastics and calisthenics to gain physical and moral strength.
