In a perfect world, each of us would be performing at the absolute top of our game in all aspects of our lives at all times, no assistance required.

Experience will show, however, that this just ain’t in the proverbial cards — every man needs some help now and again to realize his best self, preferably from someone who brings a healthy degree of expertise to the table.

And thus we’ve partnered with our friends at Lexus on this handy guide to leveling up three elements of your lifestyle — style, fitness and design — with the aid of trained professionals who know those elements better than just about anyone.

Each has a resume that speaks for itself, along with a boatload of wisdom they’ve gleaned over many years of eating, sleeping and breathing this stuff day in, day out.

In short, these are folks you’ll want to pay attention to — so read on and elevate thy life.
