About Me

Posted on by

Adam Sandel is a three-time Guinness World Record holder in pull-ups including “Most Pull-Ups in One Minute” (68 pull-ups, set December 2018). He is an athlete in multiple sports, a philosopher, and an award-winning teacher at Harvard University.

Sandel draws on his dual background in sports and philosophy to provide unique training advice and to inspire people at all levels to see their training as a form of empowerment that carries over to the rest of their lives.

His goal is to help people stay strong and reach new levels —to face challenges, question conventional wisdom, and see life as an unfolding journey.

While completing his PhD in political philosophy at Oxford University, Sandel competed in international powerlifting. He is the author of the critically-acclaimed book The Place of Prejudice: A Case for Reasoning within the World (Harvard University Press, 2014), which has been translated into multiple languages.
