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.
  • Why focusing on a new habit every day is what changes our minds' state.

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.
