Keep your mind & body active

Expert Speaker on Health & Wellness
Stephen Jepson Playing On The Playground

At age 80, I am living proof of a philosophy that keeps the mind and body active, simply through the art of play. I enjoy tightrope walking, unicycling, throwing knives and juggling while balancing on a bongo board. I also love water sports, like kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling. Since age 65, I have won over 80 gold medals in swim competitions around the world and swam across Iowa’s beautiful Spirit Lake. The lifestyle-fitness philosophy I’m talking about is called, “Never Leave the Playground”.

Change your life for the better

live longer & be healthy
Stephen Jepson Unicycling

“Never Leave the Playground” changes your life for the better by changing your mindset. Instead of seeing moving the body as a difficult effort, this method of approach towards movement encourages lightheartedness, laughter and simplicity. I have adapted activities for different skill levels that immediately get the body moving. This is play, not exercise!

A life changing experience

Stephen Jepson is An Expert Speaker on Health & Wellness

My goal is to teach people to keep up the physical movement, the activity which continually enriches the brain and body. “Just keep moving” is my mantra. No matter how impaired the body has become through disease or aging, consistent movement is imperative to regain and maintain balance, stability, coordination and growth. I call my method “age proofing the brain and body”. It can begin at any age or any condition. It is a life-changing experience.

My program will help improve memory & creativity

Stephen Jepson at The Fitness Business Simmit

Over the last 8 years, I have committed myself to researching and documenting my theory of lifetime fitness, which now is being presented in this program called, “Never Leave the Playground”. We are going to have a lot of fun along the way. I can help you, too – no matter where you are in your physical journey – with games, playing and specifically designed toys that are going to aid in maintaining your health. The program improves balance, stability, and coordination in the body; it improves memory, creativity and mood in the mind.

Aren’t you looking forward to playing jacks with both hands? Remember the joy of hula-hooping and jumping rope? Keep moving in fun, creative ways all of your life.

Let's "Never Leave the Playground" together

I know one thing with absolute certainty movement is key; of premier imports. We are an animal, that defines an animal. Plants are sessile and animals move; see Ted talk by Daniel Walpert: “The Real Reason For Brains". And the more novel or challenging, the better it is for the body. Frequently when I speak about the benefits of activity I do not talk about the brain and body as though they are two separate things. They are not two things. - one entity, all of a piece. Division of these elements is a spurious one. I am speaking and thinking of activity as movement; new and challenging movement. More than eye movement as in reading or watching television.

I want my audience to experience the joy, excitement, and exuberance of returning to the playground to learn new games, and new movements. To have new growth in body and brain as they play their way to greater health, a longer life and the kind of happiness one experienced in their youth as they entered the playground again and again.
There is absolutely no risk in this, just fun and growth and myriad other wonderful benefits.
