The edge mission tout


Content for men optimizing their healthspan and lifespan

You know the basics when it comes to being healthy: exercise, don’t eat too much junk, drink less booze, get some sleep, repeat.

Taking your health to the next level? That’s more complicated.

And more fun.

Health is personal. You can get data on your heart rate, your hormones, your workout effort and recovery, and your blood sugar. You can tweak your diet and your training based on that data.

That’s where we come in.

The Edge delivers science-backed, expert-driven content to help you optimize your healthspan and your lifespan.

Our editorial team—award-winning journalists (we’ve previously crafted content for Men’s Health, Gear Patrol, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, Women’s Health, Men’s Journal, Runner’s World, Popular Science, and more) who are immersed in wellness—dig into the latest health discoveries, test new gear, and constantly talk to leading physicians, nutritionists, dieticians, and fitness pros.

We boil that knowledge down into tips and advice. You’ll know exactly what to eat, buy, and do to achieve your goals.

Our content represents our core values:
