What’s the secret to aging gracefully?
When it comes to training, you don’t need to punish yourself to achieve incredible results.
In fact, life-long fitness junkies often see physical movement not as punishment, but as a creative act.
Breaking a sweat sets off a hormonal cascade that increases mental alertness, boosts your energy and leads to long-term gains in quality of life. But none of this matters unless you actually do it. The key is making physical activity fun.
So today, I am honored to be here with the one and only Tony Horton, a world class fitness and lifestyle expert, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and of course, the creator of the P90X fitness series.
If you’ve struggled to set up an enjoyable and effective workout routine, this show is for you.
Tony is legit hilarious. We had a great time recording this episode, and I hope you enjoy listening. We’re chatting about…
- The secret to aging gracefully
- How to treat exercise as a creative outlet
- Why health is a critical survival skill
- Tips on building your own backyard gym or ninja course
- The importance of consistency and intensity
- The effects of physical fitness on the mind
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Tony.

Before You Go
I want to share this quick note from Janine, who joined us in the Wild Challenge. She says…
Hi Abel and Alyson,
I just received my prize package! I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive this today. I have been a huge fan for years, ever since seeing you on TV, and have been a member of the community and using your wild diet for many years as well.
However, I never had your actual book, but had my downloaded copy. I am just over the moon about receiving a signed copy of your book. Call me old school, but nothing, for me, truly replaces having the actual book. I am so excited that I will start your plan all over again and follow it page by page. I like to follow along exactly and like the book living on my kitchen counter in my recipe book holder, open to the day’s page. I have also been really enjoying using the app, so I think this will be great to use in tandem.
I am also very interested in checking out these supplements. I currently do not take any supplements, so will be very excited to see if they make a difference.
I love your podcast, love your recipes and love your book and your app. Thank you for coming back to us again after your hiatus, as you are a welcome voice in the healthy living and real food movements. I am an organic hobby farmer and educational consultant living on an acreage on an island in rural British Columbia, so your way of living and eating really resonates with me. Thank you again for this wonderful prize package and for all you do.
Janine, thank you so much for sharing this note, it really warms our hearts.
Alyson and I often read these together, and it’s just so wonderful to have you out there, even in different countries, all over the world doing this in tandem with us.
And so, yes, you mentioned a lot of our different projects there, and those who’ve been listening or watching for a long time are probably aware that I wrote a book called The Wild Diet in paperback and hardcover, you can still get that at a lot of bookstores, of course, as well as online.
But that’s a great thing to have around. I hope it’s even more relevant now than ever.
I agree with you, when it comes to learning, there’s nothing better than books and they’re much more reliable than the internet these days, which is full of who knows what.
Even if you’re looking for a quality recipe on the internet, you never know what you’re going to get on the other side.
If you’re going to spend all the money sourcing the ingredients and all of the time to try to put it together, it better be good.
And so all of ours are tested many times over by our own families, and many of these recipes in our book and in our apps, and all the rest of that come from our family recipes that have kind of been rehashed for the sake of health and aligning with certain dietary principles.
So anyway, get your original copy of The Wild Diet covered in pancake batter and sauces and spices and all the rest of it in the kitchen, it’s part of the fun.
And if you want to join in on our latest challenge anywhere across the world, then go to FatBurningMan.com/App.

Can’t wait to hear how you like it.
If you haven’t tried a well-formulated, clean CBD tincture or salve yet, it can make a world of difference and you should probably check it out.
CBD can be a game changer when it comes to the quality of your sleep, muscle recovery and more. But after trying many dozens of different formulations, it’s clear that not all CBD products are created equal.
Thankfully, Eaton Hemp CBD is done right. It’s USDA-certified, organic, full spectrum, unfiltered and infused in Eaton Hemp’s own organic hemp seed oil grown on their farm in Upstate New York.
