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.
Maybe. But then again, maybe not. Traditionally, the idea is: want to get better at running? Run a lot. Swimming? Swim until you sprout gills. Biking? Bike until . . . you get the picture.
CrossFit Endurance founder Brian MacKenzie has a new book out where he talks about these questions and more: Power Speed ENDURANCE. Brian came by the WellnessFX offices to chat with our CEO Jim Kean about his new book, the common problems with posture and mobility, and how weight training can help break years of bad habits. Here’s a snippet of their conversation:
CrossFit Endurance founder Brian MacKenzie recently sat down with WellnessFX CEO Jim Kean. They talked about Tim, his diet, and the body’s fuel system. Brian then goes on to share tips from his own diet during training and leading up to a competitive event.
Imagine a man. He’s been health-conscious his whole life. One day his doctor informs him things have begun to go downhill. His cholesterol–fine mere months before–has gone crazy.
“Why is this happening?” he asks.
“Life,” the doctor says. “You’re forty-five years old. Your bad genes are starting to flip on and your good genes are shutting down.”
The man remembers how his grandfather died as a result of heart surgery and how he’s been fighting to avoid that same fate. All his efforts–the countless hours in the gym, the runs in the morning, the small portion sizes at family dinners–begins to feel like they were for naught. What does he do?
