All good things must come to an end. Over the last few weeks we’ve shared video and summaries from the amazing Building the Perfect Human event WellnessFX held last month in San Francisco.
In classic fireside-style, our CEO Jim Kean, best-selling author Tim Ferriss, and Dr. Justin Mager have discussed how to slow aging as much as possible in the next 20 years by tracking your health, reducing injuries, eating holistically, and embracing your bacterial self. This last iteration continues with questions from the audience, with everything from The 4-Hour Musician to the problems with the current supplement market.
The conversation from Tim Ferriss’ phenomenal Building the Perfect Human fireside chat is just about done, but that doesn’t mean the show’s over! After discussing how to turn back the hands of the biological clock, our WellnessFX trio of experts tackled questions from the audience.

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.
WellnessFX is about experimentation. The body fully replenishes its red blood cell population every 3-6 months and the biomarkers we test can be easily tracked over time to measure progress. Our members become closely familiar their personal biology to inform crucial lifestyle decisions.
Best-selling author and quantified-selfer Tim Ferriss knows all about tracking and experimentation. In fact, he’s dedicated his life to it. It all started during college when he was striving to go All-American in wrestling and tried experimenting with diuretics to cut 20+ pounds in 24 hours for weigh-ins to qualify for a lower weight-class. He would then rehydrate back to normal weight in time for the match. Talk about extreme dedication!
It’s All In The Blood
For the last decade Tim has been tracking everything from complete lipid panels, insulin, and hemoglobin A1c, to IGF-1 and free testosterone. From gaining muscle by working each body part only 80 seconds a week to binge eating without gaining a pound, Tim takes full advantage of the knowledge he collects.
Tim and WellnessFX found each other a couple years ago. Tim’s results showed he was very low in myristic acid, a common (and important) saturated fatty acid. As new WellnessFX members can see for themselves this Thursday, March 28, Tim is dedicated to building the perfect human, so being deficient in anything just wouldn’t do! He started taking coconut oil every morning to balance out his levels. His morning-time fatigue and grogginess went out the window.
