Ben Greenfield: New Fitness & Travel Bio-Hacks For Entrepreneurs

By  |  0 Comments

Ben Greenfield is an expert at high performance. You probably know him from his amazing podcast and blog, specializing in fitness and exercise. He’s the perfect fit for the first episode of the Superhuman Entrepreneur show because he is known for his (literally) “superhuman” exercises and challenges.

We’re going to dive right in and talk about how exercise and the traditional workout mindset isn’t what the busy entrepreneur or executive should be in. Ben is going to share how he hacks his environment to help him “exercise” even when he’s not going to the gym in the traditional sense.


We’re also going to talk about cortisol levels. What I’ve seen in my research and what Ben has seen during his studies and what you can do about it. You’ll hear Ben use the term “ancestral” several times. Make sure to pay attention for what he means by this and how it should affect your nutrition.

Fermented foods - don’t like them? Well Ben talks about the importance they should have in your diet. (and what to do when you can’t find them) Also, Ben shares an awesome hack for massively increasing the effectiveness of probiotics. This is one you probably haven’t heard before.
