Rob & Devon Dionne have been in the health and fitness world for over a decade. Devon is a Holistic Nutrition Counselor and GYROTONIC® Instructor. Rob is a certified personal trainer with NASM, holding advanced certification, CES, PES, MMA, and Weight Loss Specialist. He's also a level 1 Crossfit Instructor. This husband and wife team redefine what it means to be healthy in this fast pasted, hectic world we live in. 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.

This Week Rob dedicates the beginning of the podcast to answering the question, "Is Juicing Healthy?" An Open Sky Fitness fan asks whether she should replace her morning coffee for a morning Jamba Juice. Rob goes into why some fruit juices are as bad for you as a Snickers bar as well as what kinds of juices are good for you. Then, guest Garry Matthews, head trainer of G-Train Fitness, joins Rob inspiring you with tips towards achieving your fitness goals. He even gives you a full body workout that will take you under an hour to complete.
Originally from Trinidad, Garry moved to the US where he was introduced to American sports, influencing him to embrace health and fitness as a profession.  He then created G-Train Fitness in North Hollywood to motivate others towards a healthy life.  A very passionate and motivational speaker, Garry inspires us to be accountable in our daily actions towards health.
