Steve Maxwell - Hotel Workout

Read more

This week’s episode is one of my all time favourites. Instead of our usual setup in the leather chairs at London Real Studios, I met Steve Maxwell at his hotel room to go through his daily workout. For those of you who don’t know Steve Maxwell, he is one of my favourite people. He’s a living legend. Not only is he a 64 year old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, but he travels the world as a nomad teaching people how to move, breathe, and think. With a twinkle in his eye, Steve shares with us his secrets to living a life of vitality – including literally stripping down and doing his favourite health promotion technique. Watch us discuss:- How he trained with the Gracie family before the existed- How to stay fit, any place and time. – Steve’s daily anti-ageing techniques – including some Chi Qong and Russian Slavic Health Systems- Why sticking your tongue out and crossing your eyes is good for your immune system- How Steve was able to go from severely near sighted to throwing his glasses away – Why he swishes coconut oil for 20 min in his mouth- How to keep your sexual organs healthy and preserve your youth and vitality- Why he only eats two meals a day- Why he believes that exercise takes no vacation
