Before becoming Chief Fitness Officer for Onnit, John Wolf founded and owned Wolf Fitness Systems, a well known unconventional gym in California that focused on the integration of various movement theories with the unique tools it made use of. He also spent several years as the US Director of Operations, sitting on the board of the International Education Committee for another well-known unconventional fitness organization.  Though it is not uncommon to see John in the gym training people with the wide array of equipment offered at Onnit, his primary role is in the development, growth and proliferation of a fitness perspective that continues to serve the company’s mission of Total Human Optimization, while leading a charge in the transformation of the fitness industry itself!

The Life Stylist is about building the ultimate lifestyle based on the most powerful principles of health and spirituality – and there's no one better to talk to about the fitness side of things than John Wolf, the Chief Fitness Officer for Onnit and a phenom in the fitness industry.

Not only do the unconventional fitness systems pioneered by John and the rest of the folks at Onnit change you physiologically, but they also change you emotionally and psychologically. And those gains are just as significant as muscle mass or range of movement, if not more.

Going into your local YMCA or Gold's Gym and lifting weights is all well and good, but you deserve better than the norm.

Because adopting conventional mindsets and conventional activities will only yield you conventional results.

Do you want to create a lifestyle that is unconventional and transform your mind and body into something exceptional? Want a community that offers vital support?

Then you have to check out the wisdom John shares in this episode.
