Press & Publications + Podcast Guest Information

My name is Julian Hayes II. Welcome to The Art of Fitness & Life, where the mission is to help entrepreneurs, business owners, and executives seamlessly marry health and business.

Our big vision: “A world where aging is optional and you’re running around with your great-great-grandchildren, not just seeing them.”


It’s time to rethink how we go about our health

Even with many accomplishments and financial success, many entrepreneurs and executives don’t have the physical success that matches their financial success because of the dark sides of success and not using solutions tailored to their unique biology and demanding lifestyle.

Entrepreneurs and executives need a precise roadmap and system that accommodates their unique biology and demanding lifestyle so they can make aging irrelevant, focus on what they do best, and experience life to its fullest.

This is why, unlike other health and fitness people out there that rely on hope and a one-size-fits-all approach, we’re a high-touch and high-tech firm that provides complete support and leaves nothing to chance through a comprehensive and detailed N of 1 approach based on your unique biology. Entrepreneurs live a unique lifestyle, and therefore, need a unique and precise solution to maximize their time and health.

I would love to explore how we can help your listeners optimize their brains and bodies, enhance their health, and expand their human capacity without the guesswork through precision performance and wellness strategies. Here’s a playlist that contains a large sample of my interviews over the years.

Below are some of the various press and publications that I’ve had the opportunity to work with through writing, speaking, tv, and interviews. Concerning your podcast or radio show, a few ideas/main areas of focus that could be of interest and combined are:

  • Run Your Body Like A Business: How to Match Your Physical Success With Your Financial Success
  • Growing Younger and Wiser: 5 Steps to Make Aging Irrelevant While Elevating Your Status & Performance
  • Why Fitness is Hard For Entrepreneurs (and What to Do About It)
  • Sleep Well to Perform, Lead, Love, and Live Better
  • Nutrition for Busy Entrepreneurs
  • Leveraging Technology to Thrive in Health and Business
  • Achieving Your Health Goals Faster While Stressing Less
