Steve Kamb


Hey, I’m Steve Kamb.

I’m the founder and chief editor of, and the author of the best-selling book, Level Up your Life.

Since 2009, I’ve published 800+ science-backed, research driven articles about health, fitness, nutrition, muscle-building, and weight loss on Nerd Fitness.

I’m proud to have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, TIME, the Washington Post, CNET, and dozens of other publications.

I’ve been a speaker at Google, Google Dublin, Facebook, and I regularly guest lecture at Vanderbilt University, my alma mater.

I’ve also lived like James Bond in Monaco, dove with sharks on the Great Barrier reef, and explored the ruins of Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu.

As for Nerd Fitness, what started as a simple hobby has since become a worldwide movement, Team Nerd Fitness now has a dedicated team of 50 professionals and superheroes to serve this community!

It’s our mission to provide the most well-researched information, in the most entertaining form, including the funniest memes and gifs, to help people level up their lives.

I’m also on a not-so-secret mission to actually become Captain America.
