At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVED this talk. It was so funny AND informative. You made mention of nutrition and dieting, and I went to your website to see if I could find any more of your advice on that, but didn't see any. We need another TED talk from you about nutrition!!

    Every time I start slacking off on my exercise, all I have to do is watch this video!

    All it really takes is an hour a day of walking. Start with a lap around a track, then two, three, ect. Go for a walk around a golf course. Walk around the block each day , then go two blocks, ect. In a month or so 5 to 10 miles is pretty possible and that is fit in most situations. Do as many pushups as you can each hour , just 2 to 5 minutes stop and do as many pushups as you can. Then do flutter kicks the next day. Do that for a few months and you should get fit. You have to exercise focus, concentration, and control while you exercise your body, exercising our mental control over your physical prowess at the same time. If you are working on circulation , then mentally focus on your heart and circulation, if on stamina , then focus on stamina. If you are working on walking you focus on the way you walk while you focus on the circulation or stamina or whatever you are working on. You will find doing that will help you figure out how to get the results you are after.

    "You're not doing it right if it's fun" – I'm just going to say the words "social dance"

    This is the best Ted Talk I've ever heard. Most are interesting, present a problem, then offer vague solutions or ideas. This actually gives concrete useful information. Very well done.

    I love this talk but I can't figure out why he said to test
    yourself by stepping up and down on a 16 1/4 inch step or stool OR to
    use an 8" step. Wouldn't it be far easier to use the 8" vs the 16.25"
    step???

  • comment-avatar

    This is one of the best Ted Talks I have ever seen. Please write a book. Your insight made sense and normalized the struggles we have. Work out till your tired, then do it again tomorrow. Love it.

    Most enjoyable TEDX Talks I've watched. Ogies presentation/delivery was spot on! Enlightening with elements of humor. I'm a Big Fan and MAY even consider his advice; when I find time!! ;0) Great Job!!

    Fitness has been defined. Fitness= increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. That's CrossFit's definition of fitness. I agree with everything he is saying, but what he's been saying for 30 years has been packaged and delivered. Hasnt been delivered to everyone's door, but some people some have received it. Greg Glassman acted upon what he's been preaching, and he created something that is rooted in solid science.
