Christian Isakson

You can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet.
– Christian Isakson, 2011 Finisher of the EPIC5 Challenge

The quote above was particulary compelling from a man who exercised more than twelve hours per day for five straight days in completing the astonishing EPIC5 Challenge— five individual iron distance triathlons (swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run 26.2 miles) totaling over 700 grueling miles in five consecutive days on five different Hawaiian islands.

We continue our fascinating and inspiring conversation with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson. How do you train for such an event? How important is recovery after hard exercise? How can eating with intention help fuel your dreams and goals? Learn the answers to these questions and also how you can apply principles Christian learned to help you on your personal race to Super Health!

Imagine starting your day at sunrise swimming 2.4 miles, then biking 112 miles, then running 26.2 miles back-to-back-to-back, crossing a finish line that night.  This is known as the Ironman triathlon and these races are held all around the world.  Professional Ironman triathletes finish in just over eight hours, with the “average” finisher completing this amazing test of endurance between 10-14 hours.

Now imagine completing an Ironman distance race for five consecutive days, on five different Hawaiian Islands.  Meet the EPIC5 Challenge and Living Fuel champion Christian Isakson who recently accomplished this Super Human Feat in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.

We sat down with Christian and discovered a man whose passions lie far beyond swim, bike, and run.  How did he do it?  What did he learn?  His answers will encourage, inspire, and motivate you and your whole family.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4:7

Dear Living Fuel Family,

What is your “why”?

In other words, exactly why do you want to be healthy, why do you want to lose weight, or why do you want more energy?  Be specific.  Perhaps you’d like to play with your kids without tiring easily, or maybe you want that sense of accomplishment from completing a local 5K road race.  Your ‘why’ is personal to you.  It can motivate, encourage, and inspire you to do great things, and accomplish what you once thought was impossible.



Today on LivingFuelTV, we’re excited to continue our uplifting series Super Human Feat with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson, 2011 finisher of the extraordinary EPIC5 Challenge event in Hawaii.  With great video footage from the scenic EPIC5 course, Christian recounts the great highs and lows he experienced and how he pushed through to the finish line.  His story is amazing, encouraging, and inspiring.  If you’re just joining us for this great series, be sure and watch the otherSuper Human Feat episodes that you’ll find below today’s episode.

Dear Living Fuel Family,

Thirty minutes of moderate exercise, five days per week is a good goal for basic fitness.

Compare this 2½ hours of exercise over the course of a week to 70 hours of exercise over just five days—swimming a total of 12 miles, biking 560 miles, and running 131 miles.  This is the extraordinary EPIC5 Challenge, held annually on five beautiful Hawaiian Islands.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we continue our popular series Super Human Feat with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson.  Join us as we look closely at the nutrition plan Christian used to fuel himself through this grueling event.  While you may not complete an Ironman triathlon soon, what fueled Christian through the EPIC5 just might help fuel you through your day.

Here’s to your Super Health!
