17 Things you Didn’t Know About Optimal-Aging

This started with a simple brainstorming the other night of the top activities + supplements + strategies for OPTIMAL and even ANTI-AGING

Which is your biggest obstacle?

Put it in the comments down below and we’ll do our best to help.

Why bother putting this list together? Well, idk, it just started and got out of hand, haha.

However, since Jlo did that half time show at 50years old, it seems like there’s still buzz around how she has been able to look and perform the way she does at that age.

Well, there’s no big deceptive secret. Yes, she might spend as much money on daily moisturizes as the average person spends on a mortgage, but that is NOT what produced the results she’s showing off today. Those results weren’t bought with money. Those are investments she made with effort, every week of the last few decades. And there’s no reason you can’t benefit from those same activities moving forward.

Yes, the best time was to start years and years ago, but the second best time to start is today.

If you know someone that is curious about getting going on a program that works for their individual body and goals, forward this message on to them and we’ll do our best to help. They can claim their free consult at

Before jumping into the list, Fair Warning, we’re going to break these out into segments and do further explanation over the course of the month.

This is just the beginning. Stay tuned.

So far, the list includes

*Fish Oil


*Sleep*Be in bed before 10:30pm

*Reduce light with the sun set, especially light from screens

*Relaxing Supplements to Enhance Sleep:

*Zinc, Magnesium, 5htp, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid


*Steady State Cardio more than 30minutes but LESS THAN 45minutes/week

*Yes, this may sound counterintuitive, but we will explore this in the coming days

*Strength & Conditioning 2-4x/week

*Improves toned, lean muscle tissue

*Promotes the body’s natural production of NAD

*Promotes the body’s natural production of HGH

*Promotes growth of bone and connective tissue

*Improves elasticity of skin

*Done in a way that works for your body rather than against it, strength training through the medium of movement quality will also lead to stronger, more durable and healthy joints

*Explosive Power Training 1-2x/week

*Interval Training 1-2x/week

*Foam Rolling (moving fluid improves recovery)

*Ample Protein

*Consume significant Vegetation at every meal

*Healthy Fats: avocado oil, fish oil, fish, reduce consumption of store bought chicken (reduces exposure to harmful seed oils)

*LAUGH. Laugh often.

*This is one that I think all of us can attest to wanting to experience more in the coming year.

*Hydrate: 1/4 your body weight in ounces of water before noon

*Contrary to popular belief, eating 6x/day harms insulin sensitivity and is not only unrealistic to most of our daily lives, it also makes no difference to your metabolism. It was developed for bodybuilders and professional athletes to get in more calories without feeling full all the time. NOT as a strategy for weight loss. Oxidative stress from food actually increases aging.

*Fasting: Take one day per week and don’t eat until after 5pm. Water/Coffe/Tea with no additives are acceptable.

This is by no means an all encompassing list, there is more to add, however these are big players in the anti-aging game.
