With over a quarter of a million subscribers in his ranks, Steve Kamb is the leader of a true revel army (of nerds).
He leads Nerd Fitness, a devout, supportive and global community of desk jockeys and average Joes and Janes who’ve felt overlooked — even disrespected — searching for a personal place in the broader health and wellness industry.
He’s led by example, traveling the world and documenting his own health transformation across the years.
Steve is the author of Level Up Your Life: How to Unlock Adventure and Happiness by Becoming the Hero of Your Own Story, released in January 2016.
In this lighthearted (and curse-infused) interview, Steve shares why he believes in positive reinforcement, how Nerd Fitness went from “just a blog” to a genuine movement, and encourages writers to act as their own superheroes.
Whether in writing or in fitness, at the end of the day, Steve reminds you to honor your deepest responsibility: to yourself.
