Open Sky Fitness : Workout Program | Fitness Tips | Weight Loss Tips | Healthy Lifestyle | Lean Muscle | Personal Trainer

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.

Join The Open Sky Fitness Podcast Group!

That's right! We have a closed Open Sky Fitness Podcast group  on Facebook where you and everyone have the opportunity to talk about your health and fitness goals in a safe environment. We post workouts and start discussions about how to be strategic around finding a healthier you. Check it out!

 

Build Momentum to Get Healthy

Now that it's the new year, we're all coming out fresh with goals and ideas for ourselves and how we're going to make this year great. We feel like we have it all.

But once we hit mid January, our fiery will and inspiration has been lost. Why is that so? How can we be so excited about a goal or idea and then it's gone from our minds?

Health and wellness is a journey that can't be completed in 2 weeks. There is no end and we have to constantly work towards bettering ourselves.

As you listen to this podcast, Rob shares his own struggles with finding himself on his health journey and he's not done yet either. Discovering good nutrition and creating habits to exercise through out the week takes time and motivation.

We can't give up on our health goals so easily. We need to discover our inner confidence if we want long-term results.

 

 

A Healthy Journey is a Roller Coaster Ride

 

"We have to accept that it's going to be a journey to be healthy. The process is the result." - Rob Dionne

 

Our health journey is like a roller coaster ride. As the ride clicks towards the sky and highest point of the ride, these clicks are like your health goals. All these habits and things that you do to get healthy help push the momentum forward until you're on top of the roller coaster ride.

Once you're on top of the ride and you go over, it shouldn't feel like you need much effort to move forward and stay healthy. 

Quick fix diets like cleanses won't help you stay healthy for life. This is like being shot out of the cannon and nothing happens afterwards. But if you make healthy habits to eating nutritious foods, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep, and exercise, then your health journey continues onward for life.

 

Simply Start by Creating Good Habits

 

"You should become so comfortable with your new health habits that you don't even have to think about doing them." - Rob Dionne

 

To help you build your momentum and become motivated to work towards getting healthy, simply start by creating good habits. These habits should be as effortless as brushing your teeth or checking your email right away in the morning.

Choose easy tasks to make into habits such as:

  • Drinking 80-100 oz of water each week
  • Taking a walk every day
  • Spending 10 minutes to meditate
  • Adding a gree vegetable to one meal each day

 

Unfortunately, we can't go from being unhealthy to health at the drop of hat. Just like any other new changes we have to go through in life, being healthy takes effort and patience. Think of it like preparing for a marathon. You would never go run a marathon next week without any experience (unless you're Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother and we all know how he finished the NYC Marathon)

 

If you're going to run a marathon, you have to prepare by running a couple of miles until you're comfortable to add more and help your body get into peak racing condition. Health is the same, you can get healthy by take small, easy steps.

The main point of the story is that it takes time to get comfortable with anything new. The most important part is that you're trying. Your effort is all that matters to help you get healthy and get to where you want to be.

 

What Healthy Habit Should I Start With?

 

"Start by choosing one thing that you know its going to improve your life if you're doing just one thing every day." - Rob Dionne

 

These habits should be easy to accomplish every day like drinking 20 oz each day or going to the gym 3 times a week. Over time, you'll want to do more and more and set new goals for yourself and be farther ahead with your health than you ever were before.

Once you're comfortable with one healthy habit, it's easy to move onto the next challenge.

There are 52 weeks in the year. If you try to add one new habit every 1-2 weeks, you'll be able to accomplish so much by the end of the year!

 

Keep Track of Your Habits with the Streaks App

One way to help you keep track of up to 6 habits is by downloading and using the Streaks App. When you complete a healthy task, just swipe a streak. This will help you to create and build onto good habits with the goal of trying to not break the streak.
