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.

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.

Two weeks ago, Devon and I talked about Periodization: Creating A Strategy For Your Next Fitness Challenge in Open Sky Fitness episode 184. In that episode, we focused more the physical fitness aspect of periodization and this week, we’re talking about nutrition and how to eat to get the most out of your Macrocycles, Mesocycles, and Microcycles.

Exercise is one way to get into shape, but you won’t get the results you want without nutrition either. 

If you’re training for a fitness competition, you gotta focus on the amount of macronutrients you intake and it’s the same if you want to get into shape with a periodization plan. To learn more about macronutrients and eating right for a fitness competition, you can learn a lot from last week’s podcast OSF 185 with Paul Revelia: The Building Blocks of a Muscular Physique in which he explains how to become a natural bodybuilder.

There are 5 Phases of completing a Periodization Plan with nutrition:

  • The First Phase – Beginning/Transition Phase: Clean Up Your Diet
  • The Second Phase – Building Up Lean Body Mass: Which Foods to Eat and Which to Avoid
  • The Third Phase – Leaning Out: Greater Focus on Specific, Nutritious Foods
  • The Fourth Phase – The Peaking Mesocycle Phase: Preparing for a Fitness Competition
  • The Fifth Phase – The Recovery Mesocycle Phase: Continuing Your New, Healthy Lifestyle

How does a person become a competing body builder via the natural way?

We asked our awesome Open Sky Fitness Facebook Group what topics they were interested in learning more about and they responded that they wanted to know what it’s like to work with high end personal trainers.

So, this week, we have the Owner of the online coaching company, Pro Physique Inc., Natural Pro Builder, Show Promoter, and Host of The Redefine Healthy Radio PodcastPaul Revelia sharing how he got into natural building, how he’s helped clients, and even answered some questions that our Facebook group members submitted.

Devon and I also took time a the beginnng of the show to answer another questions from the OSF Facebook group: Are plastic Tupperware containers bad for us? What about BPA, BPS, and BPF? 

n this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s difficult to get the body builder look without actually focusing on competing.
  • Why sodium intake is very important for people who compete.
  • What concerns people over 55 should have when trying to get down to 10% body fat and maintaining it.
  • How to manage your hunger according to your eating habits.
  • The key to creating a great meal to stay energized and avoid hunger
  • What fat burners are and how they benefit body builders

This week on the Open Sky Fitness, the CEO and Founder of Bulletproof Dave Asprey, joined us to talk about his own personal health history, how to hack your home and life for better health, his take on coconut oil, and so much more great insights on how to bulletproof our wellness.

Not only is Dave leading the way for Bulletproof Coffee, he is also a Biohacker, Host of the Bulletproof Radio Podcast, Best-Selling Author of The Bulletproof Diet and Headstrong, Organizer of the Bulletproof Conference, and also the Founder of many other service organizations, products, and productions.

Dave has just such a wealth of information and I can’t wait to share it with you all. We had a great discussion about how sneaky factors like junky blue or LED lights and toxic mold in your home can be a factor to why you might feel ill, not have a ton of energy, and are experiencing other factors such as brain fog.

As you listen to this week’s episode, Dave shares:

  • Why half of us under 40 aren’t making enough energy to sustain us throughout the day.
  • How mold and fungus can weaken our minds and bodies.
  • Why healthy bacteria and mitochondria is vital for our wellness.
  • How technology can lead to brain fog and make us restless.
  • What we can do to prevent disease and early aging.
  • Why being healthy doesn’t have to be expensive and easy hacks we can use every day.

On this week's episode, Devon and I are discussing how friendships shape our lives and can either help or hurt our health because after all, we're a product of our social circle. Our past friends have helped create who we are today and our current friends will help develop us into the person that we will become tomorrow.

The best way to become the person you aim to be is to change your environment including the people that you spend the most time with. That doesn't mean you have to stop being friends with someone close to you, but you might want to re-evaluate that friendship and see if that person is either helping you or preventing you from reaching your goals.

In this episode, we'll go over:

  • The benefits of having friends
  • How friends impact your mental and physical health
  • Where to find new people to spend time with
  • How to cultivate a friendship with someone new
