The answer was right in front of my face before.

Physical & Cognitive Functioning

Yes, it is good for your physical health.

But where most people get it wrong…

Especially entrepreneurs.

It’s incredible for your cognitive health as well.

You actually think and perform better.

And the most important role as an entrepreneur requires thinking, right?

So you actually think and perform better when you work out.

The point being is that it’s scientifically proven that you think better when you work out.

It’s not about getting buff and looking good.

But it’s literally that working out will make you more effective and help your business grow

You don’t necessarily have to do it 9 hours a day.

Steve NixonI’m not in the point of my life where I’m trying to get really buff or anything.

Putting on a little bit of muscle would be nice.

I’m literally just trying to think better.

So what I do is I just do just interval training and stuff.

I exercise:

  • 20 minutes at a time
  • 3 to 5 times a week

And I notice that my mind is sharp.

I’m feeling really, really, really good.

And this is where I put out a lot of my best work.

A lot of times when we get older we think our brains are slowing down.

Well, something interesting happened after I began working out like this.

Now the cool part about it is this…

Turning Back Time With Your Brain

Not only am I thinking like a rock star…

But on top of it, I’ve got all the business experience, wisdom, and the capital I’ve generated as well.

Combine this with great thinking and amazing things will happen.
