Last week we brought you the first of four episodes from Tim Ferriss’ phenomenal Building the Perfect Human fireside chat. Part One focused on turning back the clock on aging, tracking the human body, and how medicine will evolve in the next 20 years.

This week’s episode continues the conversation. In classic fireside-style, our CEO Jim Kean, best-selling author Tim Ferriss, and Dr. Justin Mager go on wonderful tangents and side-stories but hold on to the central theme throughout: personalized peak performance.

Specifically, tune in this week to learn about: calorie restriction, antioxidant cycling, food allergies, using whole foods to heal, the master regulatory gene, mitochondria and microbiome, and performance enhancement for the future.

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.
