If you think having someone like Hack on the podcast is odd, well bodybuilders are some of the original biohackers. They said, “Look, I want to look a certain way and it is not the way that Mother Nature wanted me to look. So I’m going to take control of my own biology. I’m going to weigh what I eat. I’m going to measure. I’m going to write it down.”

Hack has been featured in USA Today, Muscle & Fitness, People Magazine, Washingtonian Magazine, Washington Post, Flex and has appeared in over 200 television and radio segments. He currently gives a weekly fitness tip on WTOP radio – the Nation’s #1 radio station. Since its inception, he has worked closely with the Arnold Sports Festival (in Columbus OH – Director of Armwrestling, MMA Workshop) and is a member of the International Sport Hall of Fame serving on its advisory board.
