Iama fitness writer who turned my life into a video game, lived like James Bond in Monaco, learned to play the violin and packed on 20 pounds of muscle while writing a book, spoke at Google and Facebook, and traveled around the world for $418.
My name is Steve Kamb. I started a website to help average joes and jills get fit. I spent six years trying to get fit and made every mistake in the book, so I wanted to help others avoid those problems and get real, factual, unbiased info. No supplements, no gym, no "super secret workout," just practical advice combined with my love of nerdy stuff.
In 2009 I decided I had enough with my job at the time (construction equipment salesman), quit my job, and started NerdFitness.com. As the name says, I’m a nerd, and spent my childhood growing up with Super Mario, Final Fantasy, Earthbound, and Legend of Zelda. I also learned the hard way how to get in shape after making years of mistakes, and I wanted to help others get started with living healthier lives too.
Fast forward to 2016, and we have now over 280,000 people in our Nerd Fitness community. While running my company from a coconut laptop, I’ve adventured all over the world, explored the ruins of Machu Picchu, dived with sharks on the Great Barrier Reef, and lived like James Bond in Monte Carlo.
Today I released my first book “Level Up Your Life.” The book is my attempt to give people a blueprint for prioritizing adventure, growth, and happiness by turning life into a giant video game. You can read a chapter from the book here.
EDIT: 100 minutes later, thanks guys for all of the questions, and I appreciate you hanging out with me :)
