Cardiovascular health is a growing concern in the greater fitness community. We’ve brought in Dr. Michael Twyman, an expert in the field, to debunk the myths and answer the big questions around prevention, testing, and optimization of cardiovascular function.
Dr. Twyman is a board certified cardiologist who focuses on the prevention and early detection of heart disease. Heart attack prevention is Dr. Twyman’s passion. He utilizes the best of conventional medicine, integrative/functional medicine, quantum medicine, and biohacking to get to the root cause of each patient’s cardiovascular issues.
– How to assess your unique cardiovascular risk profile.
– What connections exist between the carnivore diet and heart health.
– The surprising link between sexual wellness and endothelial function.
– Simple steps to boost your body’s production of nitric oxide.
– The one under-utilized lever to enhance cardiovascular health (and…it costs absolutely nothing!)

If I have to convince you to prioritize your health, Muscle Intelligence coaching isn’t for you…. If I have to convince you that the best investment you can make is in yourself…. That being fit is not a temporary decision, but a commitment…. That it’s not about MORE or what you do, it’s about BETTER and how you do it… Or that your physical health impacts all areas of your life, keep scrolling.
I’m not in the business of convincing anyone. I’m in the business of transformation.
The individuals who come to us are already high-performers. They’re committed. Ready.
Don’t get me wrong – These guys come with challenges too. They typically have limited time to train, injuries, no gym access, busy families, no customized plans, no specific training knowledge, no coach and an inner fear that it’s going to be too hard.
But here’s the tough love you need to hear: The only difference between these guys and YOU… is that they took action. They stepped in the ring anyway.
I’m looking for a few more men who want to transform in 2022. If you’re serious and you’re committed, I’d love to see if you’re a right fit for a program I’m starting in 2022. Apply now at https://go.muscleintelligence.com/coaching-application/
