Free TED-like videos
for fitness & nutrition

By John Berardi, Ph.D.


Eight free videos, featuring talks from some of the top experts in the fitness and nutrition industry.

Last week I shared these videos with a good friend and he commented:

“Wow, this is amazing! It’s like one of those TED conferences for people who love learning about exercise and nutrition.”

He nailed it. We actually created this conference with those awesome (and freely available) TED talks in mind.

All 8 experts were given 20 minutes to talk about what they’re best at. We captured it in HD video. And we’re sharing those videos today.
