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...

Everyone looks so fit. Sigh. I think I would have felt out of place if I’d gone. Still have 67 pounds to go. Maybe next year.

Not at all! There were people of every weight and fitness level, but I can understand if the photographers were partial to the alpha males/eye candy ; )

Natalie – congrats on joining CrossFit! I’ve been doing it for about 6 months now and loving it. Just remember to scale accordingly. As far as running technique, CrossFit highly endorses the POSE method, which you can find plenty of introductory videos on YouTube. I *highly* recommend subscribing to the CrossFit Journal. The amount of daily information, articles, interviews, and videos are WELL worth it. I think it’s like $20/yr, but it’s better than any magazine you can subscribe to. Plus, you will find some amazing resources on the POSE running method by the very man who rediscovered it and… Read more »

Oh man… I’m so glad to be connected to this community now! I am excited to see the types of activities that go down at PrimalCon. I’m stoked for the next opportunity to participate and will be preparing. Oh and of course, the FOOD!!

I got some new ideas for all kinds of recipes.

Thank you for your wisdom Ted. Talking with you definitely changed my thinking. I’ve put the VFF away when I don’t really need them and have been going barefoot. So now I can actually gather all that information the ground is giving me. It does feel really liberating.
