Articles, Fat Loss

During the summer of 2014, I spent a ton of time interviewing an elite crowd of the world’s top experts on performance, fat loss, recovery, digestion, brain, sleep and hormone optimization.

I originally partnered with en*theos to offer you this content and in September I’m re-releasing ALL those interviews on GreenfieldFitnessSystems.com. I will admit that this was the very first online conference I ever organized but even though I was an online conference newbie, I’m still pretty darn proud of the content I collected for you in this one.

I had the honor of conducting 24 one-on-one conversational video interviews with some of the world’s best doctors, athletes, scientists and biohackers. These talks capture their cutting-edge non-run-of-the-mill research and thoughts on performance, mental clarity and total body optimization.

And I guarantee these discussions are not coming up in your doctor’s office or average health or fitness magazine – this is groundbreaking stuff, and even includes an interview with the world famous Dr. Joseph Mercola, in which he reveals his most potent and effective daily habits, meals, and supplements for anti-aging and health.

The name of this conference is REV Yourself” and it’s now hosted by GreenfieldFitnessSystems.com. It’s all about showing you exactly how to rev your body and look, feel, and perform at your absolute peak potential.

Check out this amazing line-up of experts and topics:
