198. Elevate Your Life: The Quest for Peak Performance and Longevity

“To sustain longevity, you have to evolve.”

-Aries Spears

I am excited to welcome my longtime friend, mentor, and personal practitioner, Dr. Sean Burkhardt, to the T&T mic! As a former D1 athlete and mutil-appearance CrossFit Games athlete (mostly past the age of 30), I made it a point to find the best in the biz to help optimize my own sports performance to stay competitive as long as possible. If you have competed at a high level, you know you need every advantage you can get and building your team of practitioners is critical. Sean was referred to me years ago from another competitive CrossFit-er and he has been my go-to ever since. Now it’s more about peak performance in life than it is about being a competitive athlete- which is far more important. The health and wellness industry are multibillion-dollar industries for a reason- health and fitness sell- especially quick fixes! So, you know you have to work to find the good, honest, skilled, ones that you can trust. Dr. Sean has a wealth of experience, knowledge, and passion to help people- especially the hard chargers. Check out his bio below to see all the accolades- beyond impressive. What’s more impressive is that he is on the trend setting tip for the new age techniques and technologies for all thing’s human optimization- from sports performance to brain health to chronic illness. He is the one you go to when everyone else can’t figure it out… and if you’re ahead of the game, you have him in your back pocket right now so you are not only living, but thriving. Check out more here and be sure to drop into Dr. Sean’s beautiful Boulder clinic to see all the optimization possibilities at hand- just for you.

Human optimization. Heath, wellness, and playing the long game. Alive vs. thrive. Custom approach to longevity coaching. Trust, respect, and servicing something bigger than you. Varity humans sticking together, it takes a village. Questioning a better way and challenging authority. Competitive athletes, special forces, and people who want to feel good as they age. Brain health, mental health, physical health, and how it all works together.
