This week, I’m excited to welcome Hunter McIntyre to the podcast. Hunter is a professional athlete and fitness trainer who established himself as a dominant force in the world of obstacle course racing and is one of the most decorated multi-sport athletes in history.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Hunter McIntyre to the podcast. Hunter, how are you, mate?
Fantastic, buddy. I’m actually drinking some protein right now.
Well, you’re looking cool and we’re going to get into that in just a second. But first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, your work, all the crazy stuff that you do, I’d love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Yeah. It’s always tough to do this because you feel like you’re bragging but whatever, I’ll do my best to be without being braggadocios. But I mean, I live in the world of a kind of extreme independent competition, kind of like the X Games version of running and fitness. I don’t do Olympic distance running. I do Tough Mudders and Spartan Races and we travel the globe doing races and HYROXs and CrossFit Games. Whatever you could throw at me, I’ll do, kind of like a hitman for hire. I dropped out on college and I needed to find a way to make money so I loved working out and I realized that you could work out and make money in these sports. And I was like, “All right, I’ll just be a hitman. If you put cash down, I’ll show up and I’ll beat everybody.”
So that was kind of my motto and my lifestyle when I was a little bit younger. Obviously. I still love to do that stuff but I’ve kind of transformed my life into being more of a businessman nowadays and I actually spend more time at a desk that you can imagine, sadly. But, trust me, if any of you guys got $100,000 and you’re putting it down to see who is fittest person on earth, I’ll show up and probably cream everybody.

I'm really looking forward to the conversation, but first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Yeah, so I call myself a performance and healing specialist. I'm more of a facilitator of sorts, where I have chiropractic in a background. I have training and rehab. But we put together the emotional health, meditation, spiritual, purpose, relationships, outdoor light exposure, nourishment, and movement and we bring it all together and all I'm trying to do in my facility, on my pages, and my social, when I interact with anybody is just to empower people to know that they're self-healing, self-regulating, everything they have is within them. And if they can just access that and almost get out of the way and let themselves be their best self, whatever I can do to help facilitate putting them in the best position possible to be able to adapt, survive and thrive in this life. That's my job. So if it's a career, it's passion, I've never worked a day in the last 20 years.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Erin Sharoni to the podcast. Erin, how are you?
I'm great. Thanks for having me.
Thank you for sharing some time, really appreciate it and very keen to dive into some of the questions that I'd love to ask you this morning as well, but first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work. I just wondered if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please.
Sure. It's always so odd when someone asks you to give a synopsis of yourself. You're like, "Where do I start?" Well, I'll start with why I'm here today. I'm the co-founder of Juvicell, which is a new really exciting longevity nutraceutical, so a supplement, and I also have a background in biology and biotech. I worked in the digital health and biotech space for the past six years. I'm wrapping up my Master's thesis right now at Harvard in biology with a focus on aging and epigenetics. And prior to that, I have a very interesting career path where I spent quite a few years on television here in the States doing sports presenting actually. And previous to that, I worked in finance as a trader at a couple of Wall Street banks and hedge funds. So very broad experience right there.
Yeah. Well look, no thank you. Yeah. Very interesting and wide ranging background and of particular interest to us because nobody wants to get old really, or at least nobody wants to look like they're aging, I think. So I'm really keen to tap into your knowledge and try and understand I think first and foremost, what's actually happening in the body when we age?
Yeah. Well, that's a great question. No one wants to look like they're aging, but I would say even more importantly, and I'll be the first to admit, I can be very vain, nobody wants to feel like they're aging. Right? And I would say that ultimately if we're honest with ourselves, that's really the more important thing that's at stake, right? If you really want to look good, there's plenty of options. You can spend some money and somebody can make you look better, but no one to date can wave a magic wand or use a scalpel to turn back your biological age significantly if you're not also supporting your biological aging in other important ways.
So as we age on a cellular level, there are a bunch of these different hallmarks of aging. So I'm sure you're familiar with my friend, David Sinclair. I don't know if you've had him on, but I'm sure you've read his book, and other people have talked about stu

We started the company in 2015, that's five years ago, who can believe it? It's fast. Time's flying by fast. Yeah. What we found in 2015, we did some very specific things, mainly cancer detection at early stage in the blood. That was our first big endeavor. And now we are wrapping it up and launching a product this year. But on this very long journey, what we basically found, even very early on, is that there is this unique and powerful confluence of these different factors right now, which is biotechnology sequencing and genetics, AI, Artificial Intelligence, and cloud.

Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Joel Greene to the podcast. Joel, thank you so much for sharing some of your time. How are you today?
01:28 I'm actually fantastic. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it.
01:34 No, certainly the honor is all mine, but first up, for all of our listeners that may be new to you, unfamiliar with you, and your work, and your message, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself.
01:50 Yeah. So, the question I get a lot is, "Are you a doctor or where'd you get all this stuff?" And my answer is pretty much, I really think of myself as just a consumer. I mean, that's all that I've ever really thought of myself as. I'm just a consumer who, if you go down a certain rabbit hole, and the meta rabbit hole would be that thing we call fitness and body consciousness. If you go down that rabbit hole and listen to people, and then you continue down that rabbit hole, I'm just what you get at the end of 30, 40 years of that, which is at the midpoint, very disillusioned, then where I'm at now, which is just really after what really works in the real world over time for the vast majority of people. What got me to that was, I had done the whole fitness thing starting really in 1970 with Jack LaLanne.
I'm very, very old, so a billion years ago when there was just three channels, Jack LaLanne was like the only thing on, and I would just get up every morning and I would go. I had a onesie that had Tigger on it and Jack had a onesie so, as a kid, I thought that was kind of cool. He's got a onesie too. So, I would just go and I would just mimic whatever he did, and it kind of just became this thing that I got into and did my entire life. So, what happened was, I just was fortunate to grow up around a lot of Olympic athletes. I lived in San Jose, California, and at the time, you had Bruce Jenner, now Caitlin, and you had Mac Wilkins and you had Millard Hampton and Ben Plucknett and all these Olympic gold and silver medalists that were training there.
So, I was around that and I just got bitten by the athletic bug really early. So, in fifth grade, I was going and doing interval sprints at school, trying to get faster. In ninth grade, we had all these Olympic athletes that would train at my high school because my high school coach was an Olympic vaulting coach and he actually coached Jenner. So, I just was doing what they were doing, and they were doing clean and jerks and Olympic lifts. I was so skinny. I'm six, three, and I was 160 pounds, and I was humiliated when
