Open Sky Fitness Podcast

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 paced, 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.

Can you love yourself? Because when you love you, you can love others. - Briar Flicker-Grossman

 

Practicing psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, and life coach plus the author of the upcoming book, Laugh, Life, Be, Briar Flicker-Grossman, joins us to share why you have to work for your happiness through self-love, explores the Failure To Thrive Syndrome, and discusses importance of exploring your internal appetite, thoughts, and emotions before acting on something.

This was an especially amazing interview because both Devon and I know Briar personally and Devon has even had psychotherapy sessions with her. We really loved sharing Briar's message on the show and we know you will too PLUS she is even giving some free gifts to you, our listener!

  • A complimentary copy of two chapters from her upcoming book
  • Your Satisfaction/Hunger Assessment

In this episode, we also discuss:

  • How to actually recognize, connect, and explore all of your feelings with psychotherapy and on your own.
  • Self-sabotage at its core through judgment, comparison, and competition.
  • How to sit and connect with yourself with meditation without rules and limitations.
  • Creating habits as long as you're in touch with your emotional, physical, and mental hunger.
  • Uncovering who you want to be when you "grow up."
  • The importance of open communication with your intimate partner.
  • How to start focusing on yourself now, what you want, and how to share that with a partner who will support you


There's now greater and greater recognition of how important it is to sit down and get present to your breath and your mind. I know it can be horrifying to sit there alone with yourself and the horror is that you think you're going to disintegrate, there's too much anger, or you're going to get scared because in the quiet we might start to hear the stuff we've shoved down that we didn't want to be aware of. However, if you can feel those things then you get to heal those things. - Briar Flicker-Grossman

 

About Briar Flicker-Grossman

Briar Flicker-Grossman

With over 25 years of experience as a Contemporary Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, I work with individual adults, teens, infants, and couples dealing with the difficult experiences and issues life presents. Come to understand your thoughts and feelings more deeply, as we work together to develop your gratification, feelings of accomplishment, happiness, and fulfillment.

Specific issues are less relevant than the way we determine to work together. I specialize in helping people develop by expanding their capacities to think, feel, and integrate these in often unconscious areas. We explore whether coaching or therapy is better suited to your needs and proceed.

Licensed for 30 years, certified in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and currently finishing my Psychoanalytic Doctorate, I am also trained in ontological personal coaching where you target specific results you want to achieve and gain direct and immediate access to them by exploring the nature of 'being'.

"I love helping others work from the outside in because I believe that when you dress well, work on your body language, interact with the world and take action, that's when it actually goes inward and it all merges." - Kim Seltzer

 

This week I had a great conversation with Co-Host and Lead Love Expert for The Great Love Debate PodcastDating and Makeover Expert, and host of The Charisma Quotient PodcastKim Seltzer, about the power of loving yourself, how to build confidence from the outside in, and how to attract the right wellness tribe for you.

We met at Adam Schaeuble's Transformation event and I just had to bring Kim on to share her own self-confidence journey and how she's helping other people with theirs.

As you tune in some of the many topics we discuss include:

  • How to love and accept who you are by leaning into your gifts and what makes you unique.
  • Her unique process of helping clients, The Charisma Quotient.
  • Why we have such a hard time seeing the value of something when it's an investment in ourselves.
  • How she teaches both men and women to be their own matchmaker.
  • How she helps her clients gain greater emotional intelligence.
  • Why not everyone will be happy for the life transformations you're making

I also got to be on Kim's Podcast, The Charisma Quotient, which you can listen to here - Rob Dionne: Building A Healthy Lifestyle To Attract Love

The Charisma Quotient Image Consulting

Contact Kim Seltzer for one-on-one image consulting services. 

The Charisma Quotient with Kim SeltzerWhat is the real message behind what you are wearing? What are people’s first impressions of you?

Are you ready for a change?

I am committed to helping my clients feel inspired, empowered and alive while going through a light-hearted and fun experience of complete transformation from the inside out. It’s not just about the clothes you wear or the makeup you apply. It’s about your body, your mind, and your spirit.

I utilize specialized training in image consulting and therapy to provide a unique approach to help you reach your full potential. Through the use of tools such as wardrobe redesign, hair styling, cosmetic application, skin care and coaching exercises, we create an amazing image that will positively reflect who you are and what you want to project. Every makeover is customized to fit your lifestyle, career, personality, and social activities.

Confidence in your appearance changes the way you are perceived by others. But in order for that change to last, you need to examine how you perceive yourself. What makes me different is that I use both styling and therapeutic techniques to elicit change. I am committed to giving you a feeling of instant gratification with lasting effects. I’m dedicated to teaching you the secrets of good style, boosting your self-confidence, raising self-esteem to a new high and helping you to be empowered to get what you want in your personal and professional life.

The El Toledo Coffee Farm has quite the background and I'm excited to bring Brian on to share its story with you.

I have a really interesting conversation with Motley Fool writer and the man behind the Medium article, The Bitter Truth About Starbucks Coffee - Brian Stoffel for you this week!

Brian lives quite a unique lifestyle. In the winter, he and his family are down in Costa Rica living at the El Toledo Coffee Farm but they spend their summers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where they help sell the farm's coffee beans.

  • Brian's own experience with intermittent fasting and shorter, intense workouts to lose weight and stay healthy.
  • The story of how he and his wife stumbled upon the El Toledo Coffee Farm in Costa Rica and its incredible story.
  • How most coffee farms in Costa Rica roast and prepare their coffee beans.
  • Why the terms "organic" and "fair trade" can really impact the coffee economy.
  • The fact that coffee brands have to pay thousands of dollars to be certified "organic" and thus only 1% of Costa Rican farms have that certification because they cannot afford it.
  • How the El Toledo Coffee Farm family diversified their farm to provide for their own family with crops and livestock.

Scott Colby’s influential and actionable book The Grateful Entrepreneur: 40 Gratitude Strategies to Build Relationships, Grow Your Business and Make More Money is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

 

 

About Scott Colby & Say It With Gratitude

The Difference Is Gratitude

After learning about the positive benefits gratitude can have on people, such as more joy, happiness and optimism, Scott decided he wanted to create a gratitude movement called Say It With Gratitude. Always a big believer in handwritten thank you notes from an early age, when his parents made him send thank you cards to Grandma and Grandpa as a kid to thank them for Christmas presents, Scott decided to start there.

Wanting to get kids and charities involved in his new adventure, Scott decided to have kids draw the artwork for the cards! Say It With Gratitude’s first set of cards we drawn by kids from Guatemala, and a portion of sales were donated to Pencils of Promise, which builds school in Guatemala and other developing countries.

Say It With Gratitude Today

In the first year and a half, Say It With Gratitude has worked with a number of different kids’ causes including kid’s cancer, kid’s hunger, child abuse, bullying, and education - always finding kids that had been positively affected by a charity, and giving back a portion of sales to that charity.

Today, Say It With Gratitude has established a partnership with Hug It Forward, the same organization that Scott helped build schools in Guatemala with. Hug It Forward is a multicultural organization operating at the grassroots level in the region of Latin America, with an emphasis in Guatemala. They facilitate education and awareness around improved trash management methods via the construction of bottle classrooms. For every pack of cards sold, Scott makes a donation to Hug It Forward to help them continue building bottle schools.

Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill

Buy Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill by Udo Erasmus here

 

Udo Erasmus exposes the manufacturing processes that turn healing fats into killing fats, explains the effects of these damaged fats on human health, and discloses the knowledge you need to avoid the damaged ones and choose health-promoting oils. He also explores the therapeutic potential of flax, hemp, olive, fish, evening primrose, borage, and black currant.

 

About Udo Erasmus

Udo ErasmusUdo Erasmus is a nutritionist, lecturer, and writer specializing in fats, oils, cholesterol, and essential fatty acids. He was born in Poland during the Second World War to parents from Latvia and Estonia. His family emigrated to Canada when he was ten years old. He began his university studies at the age of sixteen and gained a B.Sc. in Zoology with a major in Psychology. This was followed by graduate studies in Biochemistry and Genetics at the University of British Columbia.

In 1980, Erasmus was poisoned by pesticides, and, as a result of the experience, began to research the relationship between nutrition and health. He gave special attention to the effects of fats and oils on human health. Erasmus had become intrigued by the fact that Eskimos consumed largely fats, such as whale blubber, yet remained relatively healthy well into later life. In his research he discovered what he considered “healthy fats”, that is fats which were beneficial rather than harmful to health. His thesis for his Ph.D. in nutrition was published with the title Fats and Oils in 1986. It was revised and expanded under the new name, Fats That Heal Fats That Kill (1993).

Udo Erasmus has partnered with natural foods company Flora Inc., of Lynden, Washington, and Burnaby, British Columbia to produce the essential fatty acid blend called Udo's Choice Oil Blend as well as a line of probiotics and nutritional supplements.

Sep 10, 2019

I am joined by the creator of DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training System, Josh Henkin, to talk about the theory behind sandbag exercises, the different levels and 7 patterns of DVRT's training program, and how simply shifting your movement with the sandbag will change the resistance, force, and intensity.

If you're looking for a new type of exercise or want to build strong muscle, Josh gives a lot of great tips on how to do that with sandbags vs. traditional weight lifting.

DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training System

DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training SystemWhy the Ultimate Sandbag-Properly Used-Has a HUGE Athletic ROI

In the full-contact arena, athletes contend with an ever-shifting set of challenges: sudden changes in velocity, power, force, weight, and energy demand. The athlete needs to withstand powerful blows directed at any part of the body, to accelerate and decelerate at a moment's notice, to strike back with blinding power and to remain stable in a highly unstable environment. The athlete needs to be this dynamic-while simultaneously minimizing the risk of personal injury. He needs a cat's agile movement skills, a bull's rock-like strength, and a stallion's enduring power.

 

About Josh Henkin

Josh HenkinJosh Henkin is a CSCS and Master RKC with twenty years of experience. His innovative Dynamic Variable Resistance Training (DVRT™) has allowed him to present in more than 13 countries and publish in top outlets like Men’s Health and the Wall Street Journal. Josh has coached people of all backgrounds, including the U.S. Army Special Forces Recruiting Battalion and U.S. Marines. You can learn more about his programs at DVRTFitness.com.

When we're ready to evolve, it doesn't mean that everybody else around you is as well. Or maybe they're ready and they don't know it so now you have to be the leader in your inner circle. - Andre Young

Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset

 

Hi there! I'm happy to share this incredible podcast interview I did with the Founder and CEO of You Evolving Now, Andre Young. After meeting at the Growth Now Movement. I just knew we had to have him on the show.

You Evolving Now (Y.E.N.) is a Life-Enrichment Company; providing life-enrichment programming for Employees, Athletes, and Individuals; allowing an EVOLUTION as People, Partners, Parents, and Professionals!

 

In today's episode, you'll learn all about:

  • Andre's 5 Steps Out Of Unwise Relationship
  • His guide to and book, 7 Ways To Love
  • The Power of Three broken down getting your triangle right according to what is important to you
  • Marrying your passion and living by it each and every day.
  • Common roadblocks that are holding people back from evolving such as feelings about their past, insecurities, and fears.
  • How to be a Dream Leader for your partner, boss, friends, and others in your circle.
  • Why we're afraid to fail, not afraid to succeed.
  • How to start your day off right by feeding your soul in the morning and throughout the day.

 

Make sure you check out the conversation Devon and I have at the beginning too about The latest in food trends: The Impossible Burger and Beyond Meat - Are they worth it?

 

Marry your dream but not the path you think will get you there that you want to get you there or more dangerously, the path you think you deserve. - Andre Young

 

7 Ways To Love

Get your copy of 7 Ways to Love by Andre Young here

EVOLVE your relationship with the best relationship book out there! These are the 7 things to make or break relationships. YOU do them and your relationship can get better. You both do them... it can get great! If your relationship does not work, 7 Ways to Love provides you peace of mind; knowing you did everything you were supposed to do. After the pain and tears... peace of mind is priceless

His mission is to provide men, women, students, and employees a way to EVOLVE and live the life of their dreams; becoming more inspired individuals, partners, parents, and professionals. Guy’s Night Out and Lady’s Night Out may provide relief, but may not inspire evolution and self-improvement.

EVOLVE and best your life with their personal growth site, employee life-enrichment program, college division, and their main club in Berks County!

Andre has a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialty in Marital and Family Counseling. He has provided a variety of therapeutic services in the Lehigh Valley and Berks County: Individual, Group, Family, and Crisis Therapy. While You Evolving Now may be physically based in Pennsylvania and have clubs in Kutztown University and Alvernia University, they are a global social movement for personal development. It is important to note that Y.E.N. does not provide therapy, however, the environment is therapeutic in nature to promote a positive lifestyle and help you get more out of life, more out of relationships, more out of work, and more out of yourself!

EVOLVE in an atmosphere of positivity and personal development. Grow as a person and enhance the quality of all of your relationships as a friend, son/daughter, co-worker, parent, husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, etc.!

Mindfulness is being aware of your thoughts, why you're doing what you're doing, it's about living in the moment, realizing that you're okay and enjoying life at the same time. It's about realizing that you don't have to be focused on the past or the future. Of course, you can think about them once in a while; we're not going to ignore things that happened and not learn from them but the problem is that sometimes we focus way too much on what has happened in the past or worry way too much about what might help in the future. Mindfulness is focusing on the moment and being aware of your thoughts. - Bruce Langford

Do the 7 Day Paleo R

 

This week, I am joined by Host of the Mindfulness Mode Podcast, Speaker, and Co-Author of Cracking The Success Code, Bruce Langford. We actually met at the Growth Now Movement and I was so inspired by his talk on self-love that I knew I had to bring him on the show to share what he knows. 

 

In today's episode, you'll learn all about:

  • His life story and how he's now helping people bring more self-love into their life.
  • Why fitness and nutrition are such a small piece of the puzzle when it comes to being healthy.
  • Why people have such a hard time why they're bullying others or not taking care of themselves enough.
  • The fact that we're all being bullies to ourselves and how we can change that by how we deal with it.
  • Focusing on being quiet with yourself and what really matters to you and how to deal with your emotions.
  • How he helps people who struggle with or are afraid of meditation and sitting still with their feelings.
  • Why we should choose to be happy now rather than seek it or see it as an accomplishment because we will never have this moment in our lives again.

 

Cracking The Success Code

Click here to get your own copy of Cracking The Success Code

How to Crack The Success Code is a task that humanity has reflected on from time immemorial. The sages and philosophers of every generation have pursued this question with unrelenting determination because everybody is looking for the answer - regardless of their field. So, who has the answer? Has this book found the "Silver Bullet?" The answer to this eternal enigma may vary for each one of us according to our definition of success.

However, in this book, these Celebrity Experts(r) render their conclusions based on their proven experiences and core principles. Their answers are based on their firsthand knowledge versus academic hypotheses or philosophical assumptions. So, if you decided to learn more about success and achievement in your world, where would YOU look for the answers?

The "nuggets of wisdom" that the Celebrity Experts(r) in this book offer us look at a world that is new and unfamiliar economic territory for us all. They have "been there and done it." They provide practical answers to these questions. Brian Tracy, for example, looks at changes that the business world and culture have experienced over the past hundred years, and, based on his knowledge and wide experience, projects how people will need to think and perform in the future to achieve success.

This kind of visionary thought will enlighten and guide those who wish to achieve successful or outstanding accomplishments. We are therefore left with the options of spending our lives trying to "reinvent the wheel" on our own, or we can use the proven experience of people like these Celebrity Experts(r) to Crack The Success Code for us. Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit. - Conrad Hilton

 

About Bruce Langford

Bruce LangfordBruce Langford became an entrepreneur in 2003 when shocked by the bullying he observed, he transitioned from being a teacher to a full-time advocate of bullying prevention. He founded the company, ‘Stand Up Now’ to share the message that respect can replace bullying. Bruce is also the host of the podcast, ‘Mindfulness Mode’ where his goal is to share how mindfulness can increase calm, focus and happiness for everyone, and ultimately reduce bullying.

Who I am is not about my achievements. Who I am is what's inside. - Ingrid Marcum

 

What I am supposed to do with my life now that I'm no longer an athlete?

Do the 7 Day Pal

 

From high school and college to professional athletes, that is a question many people find them themselves asking as they adjust to the idea that athletic competition is no longer the center of their life.

This week, we have multi-sport athlete, speaker, educator, strength & conditioning coach, and movement specialist, Ingrid Marcum aka The Iron Valkyrie, sharing her own experience and how she discovered her own value and confidence during the ongoing process.

As Rob speaks to Ingrid about her life as an athlete, she opens up about what it was truly like to retire from athletics and start a new path in life. But it's not that easy; this is something that she is still working on and wants to help people who are facing a similar obstacle.

Not only is Ingrid's experience a common sensation for athletes but we can all relate to it via other scenarios such as being new parents, being older parents who are now empty nesters, starting a new to a job, getting ready to retire, preparing to leave the military forces or any other big transition we experience in our lives.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Ingrid's own transition to find her true identity after ending her athletic career by doing the inner work.
  • The power of focusing on what can you do while in the midst of struggle and setbacks.
  • How to change your negative mindset to one accepting reality and dealing with it the best that you can.
  • Why it takes time to discover and accept who you really are as a person.
  • How to compete at a high level and still have a blast with it while not taking yourself too seriously.
  • The process of being happy with where you are in life right now.

 

Breathing for Performance

Contact Ingrid here with questions or to request more information on working with her

Focused breathing work is often overlooked as a key to performance. I only learned about incorporating breathing techniques toward the end of my athletic career, but have found it to be extremely helpful for myself, my athletes and my clients.

Most athletes and people, in general, have altered breathing mechanics that can affect them in various ways. But efficient breathing plays a role in mobility, stability, ability to focus, concentrate and deal with stress in addition to contributing to recovery and sleep! I hope you find these tips as valuable as I have in training myself and my athletes and clients!

Feel free to contact me with questions or to learn more about how you can work with me - I’m available for seminars, workshops & speaking engagements as well as a limited number of direct individual movement work, either in person or online.

Founder of the super exclusive, membership only personal concierge service for VIPs and executives seeking the ultimate in unique experiences and travel for themselves and their companies, Steve Sims is an unlikely expert marketer within the luxury industry. But his secret to success is that he's build a life out of keeping his word, and not taking no for an answer.

He is well regarded for his marketing within the luxury world but be prepared, he does things his way!

There is no one-way, one-fits-all, magic solution that works for everyone to reach goals or get things done. A lot of people spend time beating themselves up when something doesn't work instead of saying, 'Hey! I've learned something about myself. This isn't the way it works for me; let's move on to something that works better.' They shouldn't feel like they don't have any willpower or they're not a grown up. There's nothing wrong with you; there are other ways of doing things and let's focus on that. - Gretchen Rubin

This week, we are so excited to share Rob's interview with Bestselling Author of numerous books including The Four Tendencies and Co-Host of The Happier Podcast, Gretchen Rubin. Rob and Gretchen dove deep into how she switched from a career in law to become a writer and all about the unique Four Tendencies people have according to their inner and outer expectations: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels.

More specifically, you'll learn about:

  • Why we try to change our tendencies and who we are even though there's absolutely no need to do that.
  • The fact that 40% of the population are Obligers.
  • How to make a change in your life without changing your inner nature no matter what tendency you have.
  • Why Rebels have a "could do" list instead of a to-do or goals list.
  • What defines an Upholder and why they're so driven to succeed with just a little bit of accountability.
  • How Gretchen discovered The Four Tendencies by observing people including herself.
  • What an Obliger Rebellion is and why it can be a beneficial breakthrough for an Obliger.
  • How the Four Tendencies can overlap for some people.

 

"What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while." - Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Ruben's Four Tendencies

 

The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin

The Four Tendencies by Gretchen RubinIn this groundbreaking analysis of personality type, bestselling author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project Gretchen Rubin reveals the one simple question that will transform what you do at home, at work, and in life. 

During her multibook investigation into understanding human nature, Gretchen Rubin realized that by asking the seemingly dry question "How do I respond to expectations?" we gain explosive self-knowledge. She discovered that based on their answer, people fit into Four Tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.

More than 600,000 people have taken her online quiz, and managers, doctors, teachers, spouses, and parents already use the framework to help people make significant, lasting change.

The Four Tendencies hold practical answers if you've ever thought...
·         People can rely on me, but I can't rely on myself.
·         How can I help someone to follow good advice?
·         People say I ask too many questions.
·         How do I work with someone who refuses to do what I ask—or who keeps telling me what to do?

With sharp insight, compelling research, and hilarious examples, The Four Tendencies will help you get happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. It's far easier to succeed when you know what works for you.

Dec 11, 2018

Every day you're just stacking another penny. If you're not doing something every single day to contribute to that pile, then the pile is going down.- Chris DiVecchio on the importance of being consistent with a healthy lifestyle.

 

Author of The 5x2 Method, Founder & Trainer of Premier Mind & Body, Chris DiVecchio joined us for a very special podcast episode. In fact, I don't think I've ever had a guest quite like him. You see, Chris helped a client, Walter Fisher, win $1 million in a bet to lower his body fat composition. It was quite the challenge, but Chris helped Walter make it happen!

Not only will you hear all about that story from Chris, but we also covered the following topics including answer a question from the Open Sky Fitness Podcast Group on Facebook:

  • How do you brace when powerlifting? What part does breath play in weightlifting?
  • What is the difference between glute activation and core bracing?
  • How decreasing body fat composition is different than just losing weight.
  • Why the scale is not the only way to measure your body's health.
  • How creating a false sense of high stakes can actually help you stay motivated with your goals.
  • About Chris' book, The 5x2 Method, and how it'll help you create greater self-awareness and be present each day in your wellness journey.
  • Examples of how to get in touch with your 5 senses every day for greater self-awareness and happiness.
  • How to begin living for the future.
  • How great things can happen when you begin focusing on yourself and being more open to new opportunities.

 

The 5x2 Method:

Revealing the Power of Your Senses

Get your own copy of The 5x2 Method: Revealing the Power of Your Senses by Chris DiVecchio

The 5x2 Method: Revealing the Power of Your Senses by Chris DiVecchioDid you know you use at least one of your five senses every moment of the day, even when you are asleep? Each sense has its own special power, but it is when they are used in combination that we create those unforgettable experiences.

We all have a set of daily habits that tend to dull our senses and encourage us to lead a pretty basic life of existence. We often find ourselves in the vicious cycle of wake up, repeat and go to sleep. I developed the 5x2 method to help wake those senses back up and create a whole new way of thinking, acting, being, and doing so you can start living the life of happiness you deserve!

 

As we know, the five senses are controlled by five organs:

  • Touch
  • Sound
  • Taste
  • Sight
  • Smell
