Kyle Kingsbury is Director of Human Optimization at Onnit and host of The Onnit Podcast. He is also a retired professional mixed martial artist, who fought at the UFC six years, and a former football player (Arizona State).

While fighting at the highest level, Kyle became fascinated with nutrition, performance, and recovery. Since his MMA retirement, his focus has shifted to learning more about longevity, plant medicines, and inner peace.

In this episode, we learn about his life in the octagon, the process of stepping outside the ring, his focus on human optimization, research and development at Onnit, the future of performance training, and much more.
