Joel Einhorn lives life at a pace that sometimes defies gravity. The extreme sports enthusiast is an avid athlete – a cyclist, snowboarder and surfer.  His enthusiasm for the fast life almost ended in tragedy while training for an ironman triathlon, but the accident, in Prague, ended up opening Joel’s eyes to a new world of medicine. The founder and CEO of HANAH, a supplement company that embraces ancient wisdom and modern day science, is on a mission to preserve – and make more accessible -healing techniques from eastern medicine. In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Joel reveals the aha moments that inspired his journey from severely injured cyclist to wellness entrepreneur.

Fred Bartlit: StrongPath

Fred Bartlit is on a mission to re-define aging. A distinguished U.S. Army commander and high profile trial lawyer - he represented two American presidents - Fred is now 87 and a passionate advocate for strength training as we grow old. The author of Choosing the Strong Path: Reversing the Downward Spiral of Aging, is, by his own admission, obsessed with pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Fred’s mantra is that if we “get strong” everything else will fall into place.  In this LLAMA podcast interview he explains his philosophy that strength drives everything - in life and business - and why men, especially “big shots” from the world of business, are less inclined than women to follow his advice.

Zab Mosenifar: Running, red wines and orchids

Zab Mosenifar, MD, recently completed his 100th marathon at the age of 70 and he personifies the art of living a long, healthy and fulfilling life. Dr. Mosenifar, professor and executive vice chair of the Department of Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, is addicted to running. Next week he heads to California’s Death Valley, to run in grueling heat that would see most of us wilt in a second.  It is the kind of “insane” challenge that motivates the doctor, who still works full-time and says he relishes living a modest life, focussed on his job and running.  In this (100th) episode of the Live Long and Master Aging podcast, we discuss Dr. Mosenifar’s 50 miles-per-week regimen, his love of red wine, orchids and a busy life.  We also find out why he is a stickler for punctuality; prefers driving in the middle lane; and why he gets a “special pleasure from monotony.”
