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.

"The S.T.R.O.N.G. Method focuses on the brain. You have to understand that when you're trying to make any kind of change in your life, your brain is going to fight you because it only wants to work hard enough in order to keep you alive. So, if you're trying to make changes in your brain, you have to understand how you're going to be able to continue to make new neural pathways when your brain is trying to get you to stick to your old habits." - Anthony Treas

We have a very eye-opening interview today with Iraq War Veteran, Anthony Treas, who is on a mission to radically change men's mental health and the stigma of mental health. He is also the creator of the S.T.R.O.N.G. Method which is a proven method to help men eliminate anxiety to regain control over their health and mental wellbeing to become strong men.

I was able to meet Anthony at a conference and while talking to him, he shared his experience with PTSD, anxiety, and starting over after being in the military and his relationship with his wife ended. Not only did he create a strategy and found a way to pick up and carry on living his life but now he's also helping people who have experienced similar or even different difficult situations and hardships.

At some point in our lives we either have, are, or will experience hard moments so hopefully, this episode will help you overcome obstacles within your own life.

As you listen, Anthony will share:

  • What the S.T.R.O.N.G. Method stands for and what to expect from his coaching program.
  • How he was able to redefine his mission and purpose after serving in Iraq.
  • How you can begin to heal your mind and body from anxiety and depression.
  • The impact of going on and off medicine can have on a person's mind and body.
  • How he identified his negative thought patterns and began creating new habits to steer clear of them.
