Welcome to Ben Greenfield's Weekly Roundup!
In this weekly post, I share with you my most interesting discoveries of the week, including the latest news on the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking, and anti-aging research. I also recap my upcoming events and special announcements so you can keep up with opportunities to learn, giveaways, discounts, and more!
The Solution To Office Stagnation That Just Hit The Big Screen
From saddle chairs to biohacking gadgets to low-blue-light bulbs to binaural music tracks, I've run the gamut making my home office the most healthy, rejuvenating, and productive space you could ever imagine.
And a keystone component of that workspace is movement.
I employ tactics like small breaks to do mobilizations from The Ready State or bust out 5 burpees or 30 squats every half-hour, but that's not the movement I'm talking about.
I'm talking about moving and working, simultaneously, and not by going for a walk and working on my phone. I'm talking about a treadmill workstation, which has been one of my office staples for years upon years and one of my strongest recommendations for you or anyone else.
You see, movement is crucial for good health. Research by NASA and many others have linked the prolonged stagnation of an office job to health effects like blood pressure issues and more. Walking, also referred to as “forward ambulation,” has also been linked to improvements in focus and reductions in anxiety.
And now Walkolution, one of my go-to companies for treadmill work-stations, has hit the big screens, featured in the upcoming film called The Pod Generation starring Emilia Clarke as part of her own office setup.
Walkolution is a silent, manual treadmill, meaning it imitates natural movement without requiring electrical power or disturbing your focus with a noisy motor-powered belt track.
Featuring a sleek design and eloquent materials of the highest quality, this is a beautiful treadmill desk that I have loved. The belt is designed for seamless movement without a motor, power consumption, or noise. It imitates natural walking better than any similar device I've used, and it looks incredible in any style office be it rustic or modern.
You can even have a bespoke treadmill designed to your exact specifications.
Chronic sitting is bad news for your health, and even standing can have many of the same issues if that's all you do. Movement is the key to longevity, so you might as well optimize for the most luxurious movement experience possible considering that you spend more waking hours on the job than any other single activity.
So, if you want to get all the health benefits of movement, and emulate a movie star, you can go to Walkolution and get $150 off any purchase of $1000 or more by using code BEN at checkout.

Product Of The Week
::: Upgrade Your Cellular Engine Room For 10% Off :::
These microscopic power plants in each of our cells might be small, but they hold the key to our energy, vitality, and overall performance.
If you want to maintain your edge—whether that's at the gym, on the trail, or simply tackling your day-to-day—you need to keep your mitochondria humming along.
The hard truth is that as you age, your mitochondria can lose their pep. The result? Less efficient energy production, which translates into symptoms like increased fatigue and reduced muscle strength. If you're investing in your body's performance, you want to do everything you can to slow down or reverse this process.
That's where Mitopure by Timeline Nutrition comes in. Mitopure is a highly purified form of Urolithin A, a compound that has been clinically proven to stimulate mitophagy—the biological process of recycling tired, worn-out mitochondria and transforming them into energy powerhouses again.
Urolithin A is a postbiotic, meaning bacteria create it in your gut after you eat certain foods, but not everyone makes it, and even those who do rarely make clinically significant levels of the compound.
A supplement that can increase levels of Urolithin A is a powerful tool indeed, so I tested my Urolithin A levels before and after I began supplementation (you can see my results here). The impact on my vitality, strength, and endurance has been profound and tangible.
What's more, Timeline Nutrition has been keeping my attention with their online longevity game. This puzzle-based weekly activity educates you on how to go beyond Mitopure to other ways to optimize your longevity and your life. Give it a whirl here and get entered to win specialty prizes while you optimize your health.
And just for you, Timeline is offering 10% off your purchase of Urolithin A. Just use code BEN at checkout to enjoy your endless energy.
Walk For Water: August 8th, 2023
The team and I here at Ben Greenfield Life will be participating in a special Walk For Water event this year. Around the world, 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water. Millions of women and children walk more than three miles to collect water for their families every day. Often this water is not safe to drink, resulting in illness and even death, but we have the power to change this. I invite you to join us by walking for water yourself. Just $50 can provide clean water for one person for life. Learn more here.
Disrupt: September 27th – 30th, 2023
Join me for the Disrupt 2023 Event in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 29th – October 1st. This event is oriented towards entrepreneurs and health practitioners alike centered around the topic of making healthcare truly healthy. This highly practical and immersive workshop will feature live Q&As, my top secrets for career success, and much more! Learn more here.
Couples Collective: October 25th – 29th, 2023
Couples Collective is an exclusive and immersive way to explore health, wellness, and mindset with your significant other. Jessa and I will be leading a health optimization and relationships workshop, alongside many other awesome couples. This is a small event, and access requires you to interview with event-holder OWN IT to ensure a right fit. However, for those who are said fit, this event is designed to bring you into deeper union within your relationship and onward into greater connection with your life, love, health, and happiness. I'm looking for 6 to 7 powerful couples to come join me at the event, are you one of them? Learn more here.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”?
