Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Join Us Next Week at the 5th Annual PrimalCon Oxnard!

By Mark Sisson

PrimalConWe’ve just finalized our room block at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort for PrimalCon Oxnard September 25-28th. We’ll have over 100 guests taking that place over and hitting the omelet bar so hard every morning they won’t know what hit them! I grabbed just a couple extra rooms at our incredible discount rate (starting $159/night), and the rest have been released to the public at the premium summer rates of $259/nite on up. So, if you want to come to PrimalCon, contact our offices immediately (888-774-6259 or 310317-4414) so we can secure you a suite at the resort and a ticket.

Katie BowmanGreat news: Katy Bowman, in the midst of a whirlwind global tour to promote her new Move Your DNA book, has found a spot in her hectic schedule to deliver a keynote presentation on Sunday morning at PrimalCon (she previously had to cancel due to a book signing event in Seattle that weekend). Katy will talk about the importance of general everyday movement to support your health at the cellular level. In particular, how to counter the tremendous momentum we have in daily life toward stillness and lack of variation.

As you may know, Katy and I are working on a comprehensive all-digital instructional course together called “Don’t Just Sit There!”, due for release late this year. Katy’s rapid fire presentation offers a lively mix of humor, science, and practical tips you can use every day to counter the health risks of the active couch potato syndrome.

We are also going to pack up some of our high-tech standup workstation equipment from the Malibu headquarters and create a mock office environment in the resort ballroom for you to test out and have some fun with over the weekend. I hope to see you there, especially since this will be our last chance to gather for a while. In 2015, we have plans for one grand PrimalCon in Oxnard on Sept 24-27th. And I’m also appearing at Thr1ve Australia’s PrimalCon-style gathering scheduled for March 13-15 at Manly Beach near Sydney. (The Thr1ve event website is coming soon. Check back for details.)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for the regularly scheduled Friday Success Story. Grok on!

Feeling rather sorry for my Toronto self–that sounds like a wonderful conference. If you have a chance to snag a few moments with herself, make sure to ask about posterior reflex driven gait 😛
Looking forward to your collaboration!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it… hopefully the next one!

Oh, man, this looks like so much fun! I hope I will get to go in a few years… I discovered primal at thirteen (I’m fifteen now), and while my parents have gotten used to me eating and living the primal lifestyle, they haven’t embraced it to the extent of taking me to a primalcon. Maybe in a few years!
