Dr John Berardi | Matching Your Diet to Your Life
According to Precision Nutrition co-founder John Berardi, PhD, nutrition isn’t “one size fits all.” Berardi makes it his business to explore all the ways food intersects with our training, our work, and our families, clearing up conflicting research to offer straightforward advice for everyday life.

Dr Robin Berzin | The Future of Primary Care
Parsley Health founder Robin Berzin, MD, believes a checkup should be more than a check-in. When we visit the doctor, she says, we should be talking about how we eat, how we move, and even how we think. As she puts it, “Health happens during the 99 percent of your life when you’re not at the doctor’s office.” In this episode, the trailblazing physician explains how she creates a “health biography” for each patient and outlines simple steps we can take at home to get a head start in maximizing our performance — and our potential.
Dr Kevin Elko | How to Create a Language of Winning
Whether we’re building teams on the field, at home, or at work, Dr Kevin Elko believes we should always start by developing a winning language — that covers everything from creating a self-talk “script” to shifting the terms we use with teammates. Dr Elko would know. As a sports psychologist for pro and college football teams, he’s won more championship rings than most Hall of Famers have. On this episode, he goes deep on how self-talk can help us build self-confidence, how owning our actions puts us in the driver’s seat, and how good old-fashioned human connection is what holds a team together, especially in tough times.

On this episode, she discusses how she’s passing Kobe’s “Mamba Mentality” on to the next generation — and how we can all put it to work in everyday life. Plus, drawing from her experience in quarantine, she shares the tools and apps that have kept her progressing from home.
Georgie Bruinvels | Using the Menstrual Cycle as a Personal Trainer
The menstrual cycle is pretty low on our list of go-to topics to discuss at the gym. Georgie Bruinvels PhD, a research scientist at Orreco, is trying to change that. She believes it can serve as a guide for planning how you train, eat and recover to get more out of all three. On this episode, she outlines a plan for each of the cycle’s distinct phases; discusses the long, hard fight for gender equality in research; and debunks some enduring myths.
