    Ep. 276: How To Truly Dominate Your Procrastination W/ Dimitris Gkiokas

    05/05/2020 Duration: 40min

    Greetings, SuperFriends! Welcome to this week's episode, where we have a very special guest! In fact, today you are going to meet one of the members of my executive team, who just so happens to be an expert and thought leader on the topic of procrastination. His name is Dimitris Gkiokas (say that three times fast) and he has an incredible story which he shares throughout this podcast episode. Dimitris is an award-winning podcaster, he runs the most successful podcast in Greece, he has his own business, and is a core member of the leadership team in my business. No one would look at someone with that much amazing stuff going on and realize that he is actually a recovering gaming addict - and I'm talking about an actual addiction, as you will see. He is a recovering chronic procrastinator and is someone who has had an incredible journey just to be able to achieve a fraction of the things that he wants to achieve in life. So in this podcast episode, we talk about the incredible journey that Dimitris has gone thr

I was really excited to talk to Christy because I feel like we've never talked about the Law of Attraction on the show from someone who really lives, breathes, practices, and coaches it outside of the kind of woo-woo, like "just believe and everything will happen for you". Because then, actually what are the steps you need to tak

I think there are so many valuable nuggets that Noah has to share.

We talked about limiting beliefs. We talked about some of the concepts that Noah has identified in his jou

Dr. Lynch lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and three sons. Now, I wanted to have Dr. Lynch on the show, not because we haven't talked about genetics recently, as I've actually been talking and I've been trying to talk a lot about genetics and the fact that we can influence how our genes are expressed... The reason that I wanted to have him on was that he has a very contrarian approach and a lot of really, really new and fresh, exciting advice that I think you're all go

And she has worked with a lot of really, really high profile and high-performance people. Carey and I had this episode on the books for quite some time. We decided on the fly that we wanted to kind of pivot the subject of the interview, and go more into the mindset and how to deal with fear, given the crisis that we are all facing right now in March of 2020, and how scary the world has become. As Carey pointed out to me, all the coach ever does is help people work through fear, to overcome challenges. And that's why I felt this was the right opportunity to talk about how to manage some of the fear that a

    Ep. 271: Why & How To Stay Fit - Even In Quarantine w/ Tee Major

    31/03/2020 Duration: 32min

    Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are going to be talking about quarantine, social distancing, and being stuck at home. I wanted to do this special episode and move around all the other episodes we have scheduled, because as it so happens, a very dear friend of mine is one of the world's top experts on how to work out in not-so-ideal conditions. His name is Tee Major, and he's been on the show a couple of times before. Tee has written a book called Urban Calisthenics, which talks about how you can maintain peak physical fitness even in urban, cramped apartments, without any weights and gear. More importantly, he developed this experience over years of working with every single branch of the US military and Special Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are people literally living in extreme conditions, who also need to be at their peak physical fitness. This is an important episode for a couple of different reasons. One, because I think it's crucial that we all take care of ourselves physically, emotionally, m

    Ep. 270: Marc Schneider & Justin Roethlingshoefer On Peak Athletic Performance & Mental Toughness

    24/03/2020 Duration: 39min

    Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Dr. Marc Schneider and Justin Roethlingshoefer. These two gentlemen, one an athlete, and one a doctor and surgeon, they are together the authors of a new book on athletic performance, called "The Athletic Performance Blueprint". This is a wide-ranging conversation - we went all over the place - because these gentlemen both have very different experiences. One was a professional athlete in NHL, the other one runs a sports nutrition company, and, in general, they are both very preoccupied with human performance. So, we talked a lot about what that means, what that looks like, what are the ways that you can reach peak athletic performance, and I also took the opportunity to ask a former professional athlete about mindset, and how you actually train that mental tenacity to show up and bust your butt every day. Personally, that was my favorite part of the episode! Stick around, and enjoy! -Jonathan Levi

Prior to Halo, Dr. Wingeier was a principal engineer and clinical scientist at NeuroPace, bringing to market the first fully-implantable responsive neurostimulator for epilepsy. Really cool stuff! Now, I wanted to have Dr. Wingeier on the show because many of you have reached out to me and asked about the Halo Sport, this device that you supposedly put on your head and it makes you learn motor skills faster. So, I reached out to the company, told them that my audience is asking about their product, and requested that I talk to someone from their team. They said "absolutely", they were kind enough to send me a unit, an

He is the author of five books and has been named the Therapist Resource top podcast, consultant, and blogger. Not bad, right? I wanted to have Joe on the show because when I was on his show, he mentioned a few things that I didn't have enough knowledge about, like the concept of "family of origin" - and I wanted to learn more. I also wanted Joe on the show because he not only had a psychiatry practice, but also has built a business consulting other practices. We had an amazing conversation, we talked about psychology, and how really to engage in personal transformati

Geoffrey works closely with researchers at Oxford University and professional athletes to further our understanding of ketosis and human performance.

He's been in Forbes 30 under 30, he has sold Silicon Valley company at age 23, he is author of 2 US Patents, he has published various scientific papers, and much more. I wanted to have Geoffrey on the show because we've talked about ketosis, fasting, and other things like that, but we've never talked about the extremes. For example, exogenous ketones, what happens in the body during ketosis, or whether you should be going into ketosis if you are just the average human being. So, I wanted to dive deeper and really get a feel for whether or not this is applicable to real humans. I think I got some really good answers, I certainly learned a lot about ketosis and fasting,

Paul is the author of Clean Meat: How Growing Meat Without Animals Will Revolutionize Dinner and the World, and the CEO of The Better Meat Co., a company that produces lab-grown meat, as an alternative to meat as we know it. Now, you may ask, since this isn't a science podcast, why are we talking about cultured meat and the future of meat? Well, as you will discover in this podcast, clean meat, meaning cultured, lab-produced meat, is an amazing way that humanity can solve our nutritional needs and in fact, as we discovered during the episode, it is a way for us to do better. To alter and improve our performance as human beings by engineering different typed of foods that could make us SuperHuman. So, why have Paul on the show? Because he wrote the book on clean meat, he is a four-time TEDx speaker, and the host of the Business for Good Podcast. He is also widely considered as one of the top experts in the space!

    Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Andy Mant. Andy is the founder and CEO of BluBlox, a company that specializes in evidence-based advanced light-filtering eyewear. Andy started Blublox not only after becoming dissatisfied with the quality and standards of other blue-light-blocking products out there, but also because he had gained a ton of weight and had all kinds of issues with chronic fatigue and lacking in energy. When traditional diet and exercise didn't work for him, he turned towards the research himself, and became a biohacker. So, today he is a leading figure in understanding how all forms of light, not just the light from our screens, can affect our health and well-being. He and his team have developed all different kinds of products, and Andy even gave us an insight into some of the crazy products that they are in the process of developing. I wanted to have Andy on the show not just to talk about light blocking glasses, but because I wanted to go much deeper into the research around li

It turns out, that we also have a lot of friends in common like Dave Asprey, JJ Virgin, and Diana House. Now, in this episode, we talked about all things high performance.

Their application of psychology & neuroscience combined with ancient practices of energetics gives them a unique approach to problem-solving and transforming lives.

I wanted to learn more about their journey and how they got to where they are today, teaching programs, hosting podcasts, and doing workshops all over the world, along with a lot more cool things.
