Hyper Wellness® As A Habit

Welcome to the 9 Elements Podcast brought to you by Restore Hyper Wellness. I’m your host, Eric Hinman. Each week, I sit down with trailblazers in the fitness, nutrition, and wellness communities, exploring how they optimize their daily lives for ultimate performance to do more of what they love.

I am a 5x Ironman athlete, brand builder, and someone who’s obsessed with health and wellness - structuring much of my day around fitness and recovery protocols. 

On today’s episode, I speak with Restore Hyper Wellness co-founder Jim Donnelly. Jim was a serial entrepreneur who trained for a marathon in 2015 and discovered cryotherapy. He loved how it made him feel but didn’t love the customer experience. So he put a business plan together and opened up his first Restore Hyper Wellness in Austin. Now, with over 200 stores nationwide, Jim Donnelly is helping to rewrite the script on proactive health and wellness.
