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.

How a 7 Day Detox can Change Your Life with Dr. Alejandro Junger

 

Learn more about The Official Coffee Diet

Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group!

Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset

 

Founder of the Clean Program and Author of both, Clean, and his latest, Clean 7, Dr. Alejandro Junger, joins me this week to share the power of an elimination diet, his 5 R's to live a healthy life, and how to detox not just your nutrition but your environment and habits too.

Join us in this podcast episode as Rob and Dr. Junger discuss:

  • His 5 R's to living a healthier life: Remove, Reinoculation, Restore, Repair, and Relaxation.
  • How to clean out your kitchen and start eating fresh for your health.
  • Steps to start removing toxins from your gut, environment, and even thoughts.
  • What it means if your body isn't properly sweating.
  • What foods and supplements you should consume during an elimination diet.
  • How to stay anchored in the present moment no matter what you're doing.

We also had a good talk about a question from one of my clients, "How can I heal my eczema?" 

 

Clean 7 by Dr. Alejandro Junger

Clean 7 by Dr. Alejandro JungerThe New York Times best-selling doctor and author of Clean shows us that it doesn't matter where you live, how old you are, or what symptoms you suffer from, in seven days, you can change the course of your health forever.

The culmination of over 30 years of research, education, and practice, Dr. Alejandro Junger's revolutionary, seven-day program is based around the core principles of functional medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and intermittent fasting. Each one of these practices alone can have positive and lasting effects, but when used together, they propel the body to health, weight-loss, symptom-reversal, and restoration.

The air we breathe, the water we drink and bathe in, the skin products we use, the detergents we clean with, the medications we take, but mostly the foods we eat, are loaded with toxic chemicals that cause all kinds of dysfunctions. We know this, but we feel powerless to control the effects - constipation, body aches and pains, allergies, migraines, stubborn weight, sleeplessness, depression, and anxiety, to name a few. In time and left unabated, these symptoms develop into full blown diseases, many of them life-altering, but even in the best-case scenario, they leave us uncomfortable and unwell. CLEAN 7 is the medically-proven seven-day answer to this toxic overload. The one-week program you'll discover in this audiobook offers day-by-day, hour-by-hour guidance with easy-to-follow meal plans and delicious recipes that guarantee success.

 

 

Dr. Alejandro Junger

Dr. Alejandro JungerFounder of the Clean Program, Dr. Alejandro Junger was born in Uruguay. He graduated from medical school there in 1990 and moved to New York City for his postgraduate training. The drastic change in lifestyle and diet resulting from his move to New York City soon showed up as irritable bowel syndrome and depression.

Becoming a patient of the system he was practicing was such a shock, that it started his journey in search of an alternative solution to his health problems. His findings are the subject of his first book, "Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself", where Dr. Junger describes how he became aware of the toxicity of our planet. "Clean" is a manual for readers to learn how to turn on and work with their own detoxification systems to restore and maintain optimal health.

"If you're lacking confidence, you won't even try but if you build it then you will try new things and when you hit roadblocks, you will persist and get through them." - BJ Fogg

 

Social science research associate at Stanford University, Founder & Director of the Behavior Design Lab, and Author of the book, Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg, speaks to Rob about why we should be focusing more on quick baby steps instead of big leaps to achieve successful behavior change.

Join us in this podcast episode as Rob and BJ Fogg discuss:

  • How to use your own routine as a prompt for habit change.
  • Why tiny habits actually create a high impact on the behavior changes we want to make and how to begin seeing it that way.
  • His ABC's in Tiny Habits and how to apply them to your life.
  • Why we have to design tiny habits for ourselves at our lowest states of motivation; not at the highest states.

 

"Simplicity changes behavior." - BJ Fogg

 

Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg Ph.D

Order BJ Fogg's new book, Tiny Habits, and get his free habit-building toolkit today!

The world’s leading expert on habit formation shows how you can have a happier, healthier life: by starting small. 

When it comes to change, TINY IS MIGHTY. Start with two pushups a day, not a two-hour workout; or five deep breaths each morning rather than an hour of meditation. In TINY HABITS, B.J. Fogg brings his experience of coaching more than 40,000 people to help you lose weight, de-stress, sleep better, or achieve any goal of your choice.  You just need Fogg’s behavior formula: make it easy, make it fit your life, and make it rewarding. Whenever you get in your car, take one yoga breath. Smile.  Whenever you get in bed, turn off your phone. Give yourself a high five.

Change can be easy—once it starts, it grows.  Let B.J. Fogg show you exactly how.

In the widely-anticipated book Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything, readers will discover the landmark Tiny Habits method that has helped thousands of people build their ideal lives.

Unlike anything that’s come before, this system—what Dr. Fogg has coined “Behavior Design”—cracks the code of habit formation.

This week, I am excited to share with you this great conversation I had with my friend, colleague at and Co-Founder of RetroFit Gym, and fitness expert specializing in extreme weight loss, Jessie Pavelka.

We dove deep into his Four Elements for living a healthy life: Eat, Sweat, Think and Connect plus we also discussed the following and more:

  • Why true transformation really begins when you look at your emotional, relational, mental and spiritual health.
  • The four points of the Connect Element: to yourself, to another person, to a group, and to a higher power.
  • Why the key ingredient to being healthy is to simplify it and how to do that.
  • How to step away and take a closer look at what kind of life you want to create for yourself.The struggle many people face to lean into all of these different roles.

Devon and I also took a few minutes at the start of the show to talk about how to continue staying motivated about your 2020 health goals, how to find your 'why' for living a healthier lifestyle, and how to stay accountable with a buddy.

Hope you enjoy the conversation and learn something new!

"I had no idea until I was sick how simple and effective something like breathing can be for changing our lives. We're not given a manual for our mind nor for our body but SOMA has both of those things so that you can get the most out of your life?" - Niraj Naik

 

We really take breath for granted but it can actually open us up to a world of greater physical health, mindfulness, and even help us discover our purpose. This week I'm honored to have Holistic Wellness Expert, Author, Founder of The Renegade Pharmacist blog, and SOMA Breath Instructor, Niraj Naik, join me for this episode.

  • His healthcare scare when he was house-bound for a year and was able to heal from it through pranayama, yoga, and Ayurveda.
  • How he is intertwining yoga, the ketogenic diet, and intermittent fasting to temporarily create resistance to awaken the body.
  • How he's combined rhythmic music with breathwork for SOMA Breath and open us up to higher consciousness and mindfulness.
  • How SOMA Breath can help you uncover your true will, gifts, and human essence.

About Niraj Naik

Niraj NaikNiraj Naik is a qualified pharmacist who comes from a background of working long hours for several years as a community pharmacist.  Becoming a certified “legal drug dealer” at the ripe age of 24, he got to witness first-hand, many clients going home with shopping bags full of drugs each month, rarely getting better and usually going on to suffer from other diseases. He also learnt of the debilitating side effects of the prescription medication which drove many of the patients to have to take more and more drugs to ease the side effects.

Niraj's Mission

Curious to find ways to improve his own health he attended several health seminars and discovered an in-depth approach on how to reach optimum health and vitality by understanding the true origin of disease and how to prevent it. After experiencing great benefits with his own health, Niraj was motivated to devise a scheme to see if he could also help his suffering patients. He incorporates a lifestyle plan called his “healthy shopping lists' that includes simple food swaps, tools, and websites to support their specific condition.

The SOMA Breath Journey

Niraj is now a professional musician, holistic health expert, and entrepreneur. He runs several successful websites that help others who suffer from stress-related, chronic diseases through his self-composed, captivating meditation music, and online courses. Niraj has composed music for healing centers, spas, and therapists worldwide.

Make Yourself Present with Good Intentions

On this week's BONUS episode, we return to the conversation Rob and Devon had in episode 125 about how good intentions have a more powerful impact our lives compared to just goals. As you tune in, learn and take notes on how you can set new intentions for yourself with an easy, 4-step process.

Throughout the podcast, Rob and Devon share personal stories about how they've learned how to set good intentions for themselves.

 

Intentions vs. Goals

 

"Goals are the external results and intentions are your external connections to yourself." - Rob Dionne

 

A lot of us enjoy the process of goals, but when we meet the end date, the final result can be frustrating. To really succeed in your goals and to feel accomplished, you have to have an intention behind it.

 

What is an intention?

Intention is a way of being in the present. It's all about focusing on HOW you're going to complete your goal or HOW your going to create a mindset around doing something.

Intentions give you a WHY and a purpose for completing goals. Maybe your goal is to lose 10 pounds, but your intention is why you want to do that. Is it to be more healthy? To have more energy?

Allow yourself to be present with the process with each intention! Intentions are your external connections to yourself.

A lot of people feel a sense of loss after they complete a goal, but intentions can help move you forward towards what you want to work on next so that you're constantly setting new S.M.A.R.T. Goals for yourself.

 

 

What is a goal?

Goals are something that you're trying to do to achieve a result in the future. They are the external results.

A goal can move you forward, but the happiness relies on whether or not you accomplish that goal.

We can be so hard on ourselves for not completing a goal such as losing a certain amount of weight. However, what's more important is to notice other changes in yourself thanks to all of your hard work-your energy, digestion, new abilities etc.

 

Different Types of Intention

 

"You either win or you learn. There is no lose." - Rob Dionne

 

There are three different types of intention: immediate, short-term, and long-term. From here on out, any goal you make has to be aligned with your new intention.

 

Immediate Intentions

Immediate intentions can take place the very moment when you wake up in the morning and set an intention for just that day. For example, you might wake up and tell yourself, "I'm going to try to be really present today. I want to focus on being more grateful today."

 

Short-term Intentions

Short-term intentions last from a couple of months to a year. During this time, you take a step back to really look at yourself and make a commitment to improve something in your life.

Have an intention for the year for yourself. Take a look at what you NEED and what you WANT.

Short-term intentions can be applied to anything: health, careers, relationships etc.

Especially if you're in pain, you're sick, and your health really needs attention; make sure you're giving yourself what you need before you give to others.

 

Life-long Intentions

Life-long intentions are broad and something that you can focus on for your entire life. Some examples might be:

  • Build a family and create friendships with those you support and those who support you back.
  • Inspire others and be around people that inspire you.
  • Have empathy for not only others, but for yourself as well.

Life-long intentions don't have to be complicated and they're quite simple.

 

4 Steps to Create a Good Intention

 

"Be curious about your feelings and be present with them." - Devon Dionne

 

Creating a good intention does not have to be complicated. Devon and Rob have put together a 4 step process to help you create a good intention for yourself.

 

1) Discover Who You Are

Spend some time with yourself to think about who you are and where you feel unempowered in your life. If you don't feel like you can discover yourself on your own, you can talk it over with someone you are close to or with a therapist.

You may feel unempowered about your eating habits (do you have self control over eating unhealthy foods), time management, health, and relationships. Learning about this is important to help you discover who you are and where you're at in your life.

 

2) How Are You Being?

How do you treat yourself? What actions do you take? Are you thoughtless, unloving, or disconnected to who you are?

How do you treat others; especially the ones that you love the most? Do you show up for the relationship or are you unloving, cold, distant, and even self-absorbed?

 

3) The Cost of Being This Way

How are your actions making you feel? Are you exhausted, ill, angry, negative? Do you feel like you're letting other people down? Do you feel alone or disconnected with your loved one?

How does this affect you physically? Do you harm your body? Are you eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly? Or do you ignore your body?

How is your mental health? Do you feel anxious, depressed, or confused? How does everything make you feel?

 

4) Set a New Intention for Yourself

 

"Give love as a gift. You have to love yourself first before you give of yourself to others." - Rob Dionne

 

The best part of this process is that now you get to make a 180 turn and set a new intention for yourself.

Examples of intentions might be to love with all of your heart or to give love without any expectations from other people.

Start with this thought: "I am going to be ________________." For example:

  • I am going to be more loving.
  • I am going to focus on myself and my family before helping others.
  • I am going to be more empathetic.
  • I am going to be more health conscious.
  • I am going to be more present for my clients.

Once you've established good intentions for yourself, you can start to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. Just remember that any goal you make has to be aligned with your new intention.

There's a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to whether or not women can exercise while pregnant so this week, we are happy to bring on Founder of StrongHer Fitness, Pre/Postnatal Fitness Coach, International College Lecturer, Stephanie Paplinskie CSCS, to set the record straight.

Spoiler alert! Yes, you can exercise while pregnant BUT there are some important things you need to know about first as a soon-to-be mom or if you would like to start a family someday.

 

In this episode, Stephanie and I covered a range of important topics including:

  • 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

We have a great, nutrition information-packed episode for you this week! Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and Author of The Alzheimer's Antidote, Amy Berger, joined me to discuss the importance of lifestyle change for disease prevention, how the Ketogenic Diet can positively impact cognitive function, plus the many other benefits of the Ketogenic diet including combating Alzheimer's disease at its roots.

As you listen to this episode, you will learn:

  • Her book, The Alzheimer's Antidote, and mission to help people learn about the impact of the Ketogenic Diet on mental health and Alzheimer's.
  • The great importance of not only looking at your blood sugar levels but also testing your insulin.
  • Why chronically high insulin can lead to a number of diseases including Alzheimer's.
  • Why the current pharmaceutical drugs on the market are useless as they only slow the decline of Alzheimer's.
  • The fact that heart attacks, strokes, and heart disease have so much more to do with other areas of our health than cholesterol.
  • Why the metabolic effects of the Ketogenic Diet don't just come from the high fats but more importantly the lack of carbs.
  • Why it's never too late to start focusing on your nutrition and trying the Ketogenic disease to combat disease or maintaining your good health.

 

The Alzheimer's Antidote

Amy BergerA Comprehensive Metabolic & Lifestyle Approach

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in 2016 is startlingly similar to a half-century ago. Despite decades of research and millions of dollars invested in uncovering the causes and developing treatments for this devastating illness, progress has been slow, with each new “blockbuster” drug proving to be as big a disappointment as the ones that went before it. Today, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is a death sentence.

However, there may be ways to prevent, delay, and possibly even reverse the course of this crippling neurodegenerative disease. In The Alzheimer’s Antidote, Certified Nutrition Specialist Amy Berger presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention to combat Alzheimer’s disease at its roots. Berger’s research shows that Alzheimer’s results from a fuel shortage in the brain: As neurons become unable to harness energy from glucose, they atrophy and die, leading to classic symptoms like memory loss and behavioral changes.

This is a revolutionary approach―one that has been discussed in the scientific literature for years but has only recently been given credence in clinical settings, thanks to extremely promising studies wherein Alzheimer’s patients have experienced complete reversals of the condition. Medical and scientific journals are full of research showing alternate ways to fuel the starving brain, but no one has been bringing this essential information to the people who need it most―until now.

In a culture obsessed with miracle medications, the pharmaceutical route for tackling Alzheimer’s has been a massive failure. Pills and potions don’t address underlying causes, and regarding Alzheimer’s, they typically fail to improve even the symptoms. As a metabolic problem, the only effective way to treat Alzheimer’s may be a multifaceted approach that fundamentally reprograms energy generation in the brain. The good news is, the secret is as simple as switching to a low-carb, high-fat diet.

The Alzheimer’s Antidote shows us that cognitive decline is not inevitable, but if it does occur, we don’t have to sit idly by and wait helplessly while it progresses and worsens. Amy Berger empowers loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer’s sufferers, and offers hope and light against this otherwise unnavigable labyrinth of darkness.

 

 

You cannot have a healthy brain or cognitive function without cholesterol. Period. Your brain is about 20% of all your body's cholesterol. This cholesterol fear-mongering has got to go. - Amy Berger

Amy BergerAmy Berger, MS, CNS, is a U.S. Air Force veteran and Certified Nutrition Specialist who specializes in using low-carbohydrate and ketogenic nutrition to help people reclaim their vitality through eating delicious foods, and showing them that getting well doesn’t require starvation, deprivation, or living at the gym.

"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.

  • 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.

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.

With over 15 years of experience working with the advanced and elite in the fitness industry, Dr. Jena Gatses has a lot of great information to share from all of her background experiences and education as athlete, model, physical therapist, strength coach, manual therapist, corrective exercise specialist.

In this episode, she specifically dives into her education in everything from having a Ph.D. in physical therapy to studying Buddhism, working with NASCAR as a Head Physical Therapist & Strength Coach, training at Churchill Boxing Club, and launching her own brand, Scientific Fitness.

 

As you tune into the episode, we discuss:

  • Her passion for helping people and the importance of being kind to others.
  • What kind of training she did as the top trainer for several NASCAR teams for the drivers and pit crew team.
  • The launch of her brand, Scientific Fitness, and the mission behind it.
  • Not giving in to the ego and allowing it to hold you back from growing.
  • Getting yourself out of your own self-sabotaging box, being vulnerable, and facing your struggles.
  • Building a healthy lifestyle through small changes every day to keep your mind and body healthy.
  • Her personal fitness focus on quality and mixing things up for better variety from time to time
  • How she approaches good nutrition by not stressing too much about what she eats and staying consistent with the quality of her food.

At the beginning of the show, Devon and I also discuss the Official Coffee Diet, the many benefits of caffeine especially from high-quality coffee, and how to select the best decaf coffee.

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

About Andre Young

Andre YoungAndre Young is the Founder of You Evolving Now, LLC. 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.
