The Open Sky Fitness Podcast is perfect for men and women who are trying to get back in shape after neglecting their health after years of focusing on their jobs or building a family. Remember what it was like when you were 20 years old? Diet and exercise wasn't a thing. If you worked out for a few days or stopped eating cheese burgers for a week, you'd drop ten pounds. Too bad we can't live in that reality forever. Welcome to life after 30. Rob & Devon would like to help you find the right path for this moment in your life. We don't believe in going on a diet. We don't believe there's only one way to achieving the body you want. We do believe in creating a lifestyle that allows you to have the best of both worlds...eating delicious food and being healthy at the same time. It is possible. Just listen to our show and you'll see! If you have questions you'd like us to answer on our show or via email, feel free to contact Rob. If you'd just like to write us a letter and give us your feedback, we'd love that too. Send everything to Rob@OpenSkyFitness.com Thanks for listening! Enjoy the show.

You may know the hilarious Jonathan Kite from his role on the hit CBS show “2 Broke Girls,” in which he plays a swarthy (“don’t say sleazy!” — Jonathan) cook named Oleg. In today’s episode, Jonathan talks about how he maximizes the time he spends in the gym and what he eats to make sure he’s firing on all comedic cylinders. When Jonathan first moved to LA he was rail thin at 6’2” and just 156 pounds. But he rapidly began gaining weight the LA way —from taking late shifts (at the Cheesecake Factory) and spending way too much time in the car. “You know how they say everything in Australia will kill you? Well, Australia must have a lot of Cheesecake Factories,” he told Rob. “Even the bread is deadly.” Despite the weight gain, Jonathan was still able to book a number of TV commercials, whose casting agents were looking for everyman types. That said, he knew he either had to “gain 100 pounds or lose 100 pounds” to continue getting work. “I couldn’t out-fat my competition,” he told Rob. So he decided to start eating better and running along Runyon Canyon with a bunch of magazines in his backpack; dropping from 215 to 185 in just a couple of months. Today, he eats a salad for lunch every day, exercises at least three times a week and refrains from drinking alcohol. He recommends shoehorning your gym appointments between appointments so you use your time there effectively. “Acting made me realize how food affects my energy levels,” he said. “It’s obvious when I’ve eaten better because I perform better.” Besides Jonathan, we also talked about Blue Apron (and their “lonely man” meals), Jeff’s mouth-breathing, and why Open Sky should be sponsored by a caffeine pill called “Frustration.” If you want to be part of Rob’s 4-week workout challenge this April, email rob@openskyfitness.com. It’ll consist of three days of lifting, two days of metabolic training and one day of cardio per week. There are only 10 slots left. Oh and don’t forget to review us on iTunes!

For a full break down of The Harrison Twin Workout program and supplement regimen, go to http://openskyfitness.com/podcast/ep-43-owen-harrison-talks-bodybuilding-workouts-and-nutrition/ Bodybuilding twins and international fitness stars Owen and Lewis Harrison have competed with each other from an early age. They’ve lived together, trained together and have even bought the same supplements. “Did you ever try to sabotage each other? Like put powder in your brothers’ drink to make him gain weight?” Rob asked. Owen laughed. “No we weren’t that bad.” These days, the Harrison twins seem to be everywhere, landing sponsorship deals with MyProtein, Body Engineers and Vascular Wear. But they never set out to become bodybuilders. The duo were originally signed to the European football team the Bolton Wanderers. After completing their service in the Royal Marine Corps, they began training with greater dedication and realized it was something they could make their career. To attain a physique like theirs, you’ve got to have determination, says Owen. “When it comes to training, you really have to fall in love with it,” Owen told us. “You have to want it and need it. If you don’t have that mental strength to push through the barriers, it’s going to be hard for you.” Owen cites Arnold Shwarzenagger as his fitness inspiration. “He started it all.” He also tells Rob about his current workouts and nutrition plan. Anyone interested in bodybuilding is going to love this episode!

What does it really mean when a chicken is labeled cage-free, free-range or pasture-raised? Why does processed chicken contain so much water? How can you decipher the dizzying array of organic, non-GMO labels on meats at your local grocery store? Today we’ve invited David Maren to help make our shopping experience a lot less confusing. Maren grew up a rebel in a vegetarian family. At age 12, he started building mobile chicken pens and getting involved in alternative forms of meat production. After marrying into a family of farmers in Virginia, he founded “Tendergrass Farms” to form a bridge between family farmers and food enthusiasts. Tendergrass is now a cooperative network and distribution channel for family-owned farms who raise their meat the traditional way: on the pasture, grass-fed, with no antibiotics or growth hormones. In this interview with Open Sky Fitness, David talks about why "cage-free" is a meaningless label for poultry, why chickens should eat worms and how he built an organic empire.
