Articles & Podcasts I Was Featured In This Week:
Two weeks ago, I released this post about how I’ve come to a growing realization that in my own personal journey – over the past two decades of living in the trenches of the fitness industry – I’ve come to the conclusion that exercising and “fitness-ing”…or toeing the starting line of a race…or setting a new PR in the gym or on the track…or finally getting my body fat percentage perfectly dialed in…
…is pretty dang meaningless if I’m not happy and fulfilled with true balance among my performance, digestion, recovery, brain, sleep, hormones, family life, spiritual health and beyond.
Then, a week ago, in this post, I told you that – starting now – my own personal mission is to create and deliver to you the experience of living an adventurous, fulfilling, joyful and limitless life with distinct purpose and meaning.
And now comes the moment I know you’ve been waiting for. It's time for me to announce what it is I’ve actually created for you.
It's called “Kion”.

This Week's Most Popular Snapchat Story:
This week on SnapChat, I took you along for a real doozy. To put it simply, I had my own stem cells injected into my dick. The benefits? Enhanced sexual performance, libido, size, pleasure, etc. The risks? Complete loss of sexual function, feeling, and damaged nerves. Yes, I am quite the brave guinea pig for your education and entertainment. Fortunately, I got to take home the leftover stem cells to use as a rejuvenating facial moisturizer so if I become sexually impotent, I'll at least still be pretty. Stay tuned for the results in Men's Health this January!
