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.

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.

Best List of the Top 12 benefits of MSM Powder

How MSM Powder Can Improve Your Life Without Any Risk of Side Effects

 

 

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur compound that helps build proteins in the body and is easy to absorb. It is also known as DMSO, but DMSO is typically not for human usage.

MSM contains sulfur and is found in many places, but with the typical American diet, we don't consume as much as it as we could be eating.

Because our bodies really need MSM to create proteins, it can be super helpful to include MSM powder into your daily diet.

 

Top 12 Benefits of MSM Powder:

  1. Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  2.  Collagen Synthesis
  3.  Glutathione
  4.  Dissolves scar tissue
  5. Decreases inflammation
  6.  Increases elasticity in the body (joints, tissues, connecting joints, blood flow in veins)
  7.  Improves digestion
  8.  Skin recovery
  9.  Muscle Recovery
  10.  Cancer treatments (Breast Cancer specifically)
  11.  Allergies
  12.  Hair growth

 

Rob uses Ultra Botanicals - MSM Powder 4000 mg. - Joint Support - 16 oz. (454 Grams), but there are many other brands out there.

 

 

If you prefer to not take MSM supplements, you can also eat the following vegetables for the same benefits. Just make sure to buy locally grown, organic, pesticide free vegetables for the full effect!

  • Peas
  • Spinach
  • Mustard Greens
  • Green Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Cruciferous Vegetables

 Are Steroids Worth The Risk?

 

"Steroids change you for life and you have to be prepared for that decision. At 19 years old, like where I was, you are not equipped to make a decision that changes your life."

 

On this week's episode of Open Sky Fitness, a friend of Rob's agreed to do an anonymous interview about his previous experience with taking steroids. No longer taking steroids now, he gave Rob an inside look into how he got involved in steroids, why he decided to stop taking them, and what he learned from the entire experience.

Rob and his guest also spoke about:

  • The emotional and physical toll of taking steroids.
  • Why he has to do testosterone hormone therapy.
  • How his body changed before, during , and after steroid use.
  • The negative impact of taking steroids.
  • What would happen if steroid use were legal.
  • The impact that media has on men's body image.
  • The cost of buying steroids.

And most importantly, how this person plans to use his experience to help other people who are going through the same situation.

Making Healthy Skills A Lifestyle!

We are going to start a new challenge in March to help everyone begin creating new skills! Maybe you need an extra push to help keep your New Year Intentions or want to make better choices. The main point of this challenge is to help each other build healthy skills to a point where it becomes a lifestyle.

We'll begin on Sunday, March 5 and end on Saturday, April 1.

Each week, we'll be focusing on a different area of health and wellness using apps and tools:

  • Nutrition
  • Fitness
  • Mental Health
  • Relationships

Generational Nutrition: Setting Your Family Up for Health Success

 

"Your relationship with food directly comes from your family. What you eat now is a mirror image of what kind of diet you had as a child." - Rob Dionne

 

On this week's episode of Open Sky Fitness, Rob and Devon discuss generational nutrition. They explore how parents can influence their child's future eating habits and what we can do as parents to help the entire family get healthy and make good choices.

Without even realizing it, our own eating habits may have been passed down to us from our grandparents and parents. What we ate as a child and maybe even now can go generations back. Fortunately, we have the awesome opportunity to stop the poor nutrition pattern and transition into something better.

 

How Do Families Begin Poor Eating Habits?

 

"In American culture, we just think that when we're hungry, any type of 'food' can sustain us and that 'food' could be labeled as many things that are processed. But food is supposed to nourish you. It's supposed to feed you; it's supposed to give you vitamins, minerals, macronutrients, and micronutrients." - Devon Dionne

 

Time and Convenience

Our nutrition habits might not only be based on what our grandparents cooked for our parents. Time and convenience can play a huge role as well.

In a two-parent household where both parents work or a single-parent household, no one may have the time or energy to buy ingredients, prepare the meal, and clean up the plates. That's when convenient foods like ordering out pizza or picking up fast food can become part of the regular routine.

 

The Relationship with Food or Beverages

We can easily associate food with good memories or bad memories. A good memory might be baking cookies with your mom or watching someone prepare a delicious meal. A bad memory could be a parent who decides to drink alcohol rather than deal with their emotions and properly take care of themselves.

Child learn from listening and watching their parents actions. So depending on the relationship that they had with food and beverages, we either may have the same relationship or it impacts us in a different manner.

  • If your parent was controlling, you may become controlling as well and especially around food.
  • If you didn't feel loved, you may feel that you don't deserve love and so you deprive yourself of food.
  • You might not have leard a good way to handle your feelings and so you may "eat your emotions."
  • If your family felt happy, depressed, or mad throught their lives, you might have picked up on the same attitude.
  • If your family was "fatphobic" meaning they believed fat people were less than they were, then if you gain weight, you may feel like they won't love you anymore.

 

 How Can We Become Healthy for Life?

 

"Be realistic and give yourself self-love. It takes work and focus to change. It can be hard because this is a life change." - Devon Dionne

 

To start, don't be too hard on yourself because none of this is your fault. You may not have received the right information about health when you were younger, but now you can take action and turn your life around.

If you've followed yo-yo diets throughout your life, you need to realize that being healthy is for life. Be realistic and nice to yourself because it takes small steps and creating good habits to get in the best shape of your life. It doesn't happen overnight with a "magic diet or pill."

 

"You can't learn to be healthy unless someone teaches you how to do it." - Rob Dionne

 

5 Steps to Begin a Healthy Lifestyle

  1. Learn and try to teach yourself how to be healthy with good habits:
    1. Seek out health information
    2. Read about nutrition and fitness
  2. Reach out to experts that can help and guide you with making changes in your life:
    1. Holistic Nutritionist
    2. Therapist
    3. Fitness Trainer
  3. Self-help and pay attention to your body's changes with the following tactics:
    1. Keep a food journal
    2. Start a bullet journal
    3. Create positive affirmations
    4. Focus on positive reflections of yourself and your accomplishments
    5. Pray
    6. Meditate
    7. Write in a gratitude journal
  4. Create one habit at a time that's very easy to commit yourself to do every day such as:
    1. Drink 80 - 100 oz of water everyday
    2. Eat 1 more vegetable
    3. Walk for 30 minutes
  5. Preparing yourself to be healthy:
    1. Meal prep
    2. Batch cooking
    3. Make healthy lunches for your kids

 

"If you haven't learned to have a healthy mindset from your family or your school, where do you learn it from? Go seek a professional that can help. Choose someone who has spent time in school learning about how to teach people how to have a healthy thought process about themselves." - Devon Dionne
