Awesome weekend at the Human Performance Conference. Getting to meet and talk to your personal heroes, meet new people that share the same passion, gaining tons of insights and knowledge and learning lots of new stuff makes me feel blessed.

I had a great time during the HPC. Great international speakers, most interesting topics, good atmosphere and network possibilities.

I'm looking forward to the next HPC and recommend the HPC to everyone who works or is interested in strength training, nutrition and mindset.
