I love to hit Equinox for my workouts where I focus on resistance training. Building strong muscles not only makes for greater mobility, a better metabolism and a healthier brain, but it might help us live longer as well. One study of more than 80,000 people found that those who strength trained had a 23% reduction in risk of premature death by any means, and a 31% reduction in cancer-related death. Afterwards I might hit the sauna or a little later in the day I may do some cryotherapy at Next Health (8000 Sunset Blvd suite c110, Los Angeles; +1 310 295 2075) which also boost my health by acutely stoking beneficial stress pathways.

Featured 5.27-6.2.19 | “I want to eat crap, feel out of shape, unhealthy, unmotivated and lazy AF,” said no one ever. So how do we achieve the converse without being so boring we lose all of our friends? Enter Max Lugavere, the nutrition trends expert who makes broccoli sexy and turns those “healthy swaps” into the things Instagram dreams are made of. Here’s the 411: In a world of buzzy fad diets and fake health news, this paradigm shifter cuts through the literal crap to dish out science-backed advice on how to optimize brain function through nutrition. Because knowledge is power, right? For the record, it doesn't hurt that Lugavere is insanely good looking, charming as hell and so damn charismatic that we could listen to him read the phone book for hours. From his no bullshit approach to his ability to grab and hold attention, it’s no wonder this wellness whisperer has the #1 health podcast on iTunes (The Genius Life), hangs out with Dr. Oz on the regular and has appeared everywhere from the TEDx stage to the Today Show. And if all of that wasn’t enough, he also happens to be an incredible musician (don’t believe us? Have a listen), which only ups his rock star status exponentially. Sure, when it comes to health we’re supposed to do everything in moderation, but trust us — when it comes to hanging with Lugavere, more is more is more is more. Welcome to Max’s week.
