Tim Ferriss is a best-selling author, dedicated quantified-selfer, and will most likely be tracking all aspects of his body for the rest of his life. He recently joined WellnessFX CEO Jim Kean and Dr. Justin Mager in San Francisco to talk about all he does to stay young and slow the aging process. People traveled from all over the West Coast just to hear Tim’s hard-earned wisdom and, as one audience member put it, it was more than worth it!

Jim Kean opened up with the question: In 20 years, I’m willing to bet you’ll look the same. How will you do it? An awesome conversation followed.

If you weren’t able to make it out, don’t fret! We had our cameras ready to go and captured the whole talk. Get instant access to what Tim thinks about joint health, hormone levels, optimize performance verses longevity, tracking your biomarkers, and deciphering your diagnostics.
