Are you performing at 80%, even when you train for 100%?  Dan Garner has spent his career coaching elite athletes, and working with high performers, to find what he calls "performance anchors" -- Dan's term for hidden stressors that can have a slow-down effect on athlete training adaptations, and that can negatively impact anyone's optimal health journey.

Tune in to Ben and Dan's discussion on some of the not-so-subtle nuances that can be found in health markers determined by lab testing.  Dan, as a strength coach and nutrition specialist, brings a wealth of information to this episode!  Listen and learn:

  • What the importance of measuring physiology from a metric perspective is.
  • When lifestyle analysis becomes important, too.
  • Where to start finding a root cause for any ailment or sub-optimal performance marker.
  • How to work backwards and ask better questions, when it comes to analyzing your health.
  • Why choosing healthy fat sources is SO vital to your health.

A special message from Ben:

I'm not usually one for Black Friday or Cyber Monday... You'll never see me lining up outside stores, or hovering over the "Purchase" button.

However, I do love to give valuable things to people who work hard, appreciate and apply them...

So, I thought we'd give it a shot this year.  And it'll be some of the most valuable stuff you've received from me this entire year.

Just as a thank you for being a client, brand ambassador, podcast listener, webinar attendee or someone who is interested in becoming lean, healthy and muscular.
