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 - Ep. 276

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 Click here to get your copy of Clean 7 by Dr. Alejandro Junger The 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 Founder 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.   Claim Your FREE Bacon + $10 Off With Our Sponsor - ButcherBox That's right!

"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.   Learn more about The Official Coffee Diet Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset   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.   Tiny surprises for happiness and health | BJ Fogg, PhD | TEDxMaui https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L1R7OtJhWs   About BJ Fogg B.J.

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.   Claim Your FREE Bacon + $10 Off With Our Sponsor - ButcherBox That's right!

BONUS - The Power Of Intention

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.   Start Building Your Own Workouts and Meal Plan! Download Results Tracker here!

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.

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 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'.   Claim Your FREE Bacon + $10 Off With Our Sponsor - ButcherBox That's right!

Preventing Alzheimer's With The Ketogenic Diet: Amy Berger - Ep. 267

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.   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Learn more about The Official Coffee Diet Get on the waiting list for the Sky Fit Challenge Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset     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 Click here to get your copy of The Alzheimer's Antidote A 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 About Amy Berger Amy 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. Her motto is, “Real people need real food!” She blogs at www.tuitnutrition.com, where she writes about a wide range of health and nutrition-related topics, such as insulin, metabolism, weight loss, thyroid function, and more. She is an international speaker on low-carb and ketogenic nutrition, has authored peer-reviewed journal articles, and serves on the review committee for the Certification Examination for Nutrition Specialists. She is the author of The Alzheimer’s Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline. Amy's Educational Background She has a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from Carnegie Mellon University and a master’s in human nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.

"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 Podcast, Dating and Makeover Expert, and host of The Charisma Quotient Podcast, Kim 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.   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Learn more about The Official Coffee Diet Get on the waiting list for the Sky Fit Challenge Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset       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   Kimberly Seltzer – Image Consultant, Dating Coach and Matchmaker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGD36bpj6ZM&t=1s     The Charisma Quotient Image Consulting Contact Kim Seltzer for one-on-one image consulting services.  What 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.   About Kim Seltzer With a vat of knowledge and experience as a therapist, certified style coach, dating coach, and matchmaker, Kim Seltzer has helped hundreds of people find lasting love and connection and build valuable relationships using her unique “confidence makeover” process.

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.     Let Us Coach You On The Podcast!

He also explores the therapeutic potential of flax, hemp, olive, fish, evening primrose, borage, and black currant.   About Udo Erasmus Udo 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.   Top 2 Myths about Fats - Udo Erasmus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOzrwDlCD9U&t=53s   Let Us Coach You On The Podcast!

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.  Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Get on the waiting list for the Sky Fit Challenge Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset   DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training System Why 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 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.

Why Mindfulness Is Vital For A Healthy Life: Bruce Langford - Ep. 255

Play Episode Listen Later Jul 2, 2019 70:09

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   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Get on the waiting list for the Sky Fit Challenge Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! 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 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.     Let Us Coach You On The Podcast!

Co-Founder of Paleovalley, Autumn Smith, joins us today to share her own wellness journey of healing from IBS, her and her husband's mission to inspire people to take care of themselves through their company plus her daily nutrition, exercise, and gratitude routine for greater physical and mental health. Autumn is such an inspiring leader in the world of health and wellness. I hope you enjoy my interview with her as much as I did!   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Get on the waiting list for the Sky Fit Challenge Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset   In today's episode, you'll learn all about: How starting the Paleo diet helped transform her health and heal from IBS. The connection between our gut, mental, and skin health. Studies that show the connection between mental health and the food we eat including the SMILES trial The 3 Game Changers for better health The top foods to eat for better mental health Her wake and thank gratitude practice she does each morning. The best exercises for you depending on your anxiety level   Which foods should you begin adding to your diet for better mental wellness? These are Autumn's top fave: Oysters Organ meats Poultry giblets Clams Mussels Crabs Water crest Spinach Mustard greens Lettuces Swiss chard Kale   About Autumn Smith Autumn Smith has been a health enthusiast her entire life. She began her academic career with a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in dance from the University of Montana. Upon graduation, Autumn danced professionally while becoming a certified yoga instructor. Hoping to combine her love of dance with her passion for health, Autumn became a celebrity fitness trainer with Tracy Anderson, most notably completing a world tour with Jennifer Lopez. While working as a fitness trainer, Autumn could see that exercise alone was not enough for many of her clients to achieve the radiant health they worked so hard to achieve. Meanwhile, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and anxiety continued to plague her personal health, starting in adolescence. These frustrations further ignited her passion and interest in the study of holistic nutrition. Through self-guided research, she and her husband, Chas, healed her IBS with the paleo diet. She then studied with the Institute for the Psychology of Eating to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach and Hawthorn University where she obtained a Masters in Holistic Nutrition. In 2013, she founded Paleo valley with her husband and brother-in-law. Paleo valley’s mission is to disseminate excellent nutritional information and organic food products with 100 million people worldwide. Autumn's commitment to health reached new heights last year following the birth of their son, Maverick. About Paleovalley The story of Paleovalley is a love story. Autumn and Chas Smith, co-founders, met in 2007, fell in love, and married on the magical Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, CA. This year they were blessed with an amazing baby boy, Maverick. Autumn suffered acute digestive issues since she was a teenager and numerous experts failed to offer solutions that worked. Very concerned, Chas took matters into his own hands. His extensive research led him to the paleo diet. Together they implemented its principles for 30 days (eliminated refined foods, shopped at local farmers’ market, ate fresh organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats and wild seafood) and by the end, Autumn's IBS was completely resolved. Autumn was so inspired that she quit her job as a personal trainer at the Tracy Anderson Method, and earned a master’s degree in holistic nutrition. Though they originally focused on disseminating information, they soon realized that there simply weren’t many truly healthy food products on the market. Many products claimed and even appeared to be healthy, using all the buzzwords such as gluten free, soy free, dairy free, natural and more but they were also nutrient-free; free of the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that promote thriving health. Realizing that they had an important job to do, Autumn and Chas joined forces with Chas' brother Matt and a good friend, Matthew, and launched Paleovalley with the belief that everything you eat and every added ingredient is an opportunity to either detract from your health or improve it. Their mission is to create products that live up to their own strict standards and always prioritize health over profit. Paleovalley creates products with integrity that are free from problematic ingredients and teeming with ingredients that promote vibrant health. They strive to inspire people to view every dietary choice for what it really is: a profound opportunity to love and care for oneself. Paleovalley products are a labor of love, and their only hope is that they help your family feel as vibrant as theirs. Stay tuned. Eat Well. Live Vibrant.   Let Us Coach You On The Podcast!

What does it take to become a great personal trainer? This week, I'm speaking to Ninja Trainer and Mr. Wonderful over at Mark Fisher Fitness (MFF), Geoff Hemingway, about his transition from actor to the world of health and wellness, lessons learned as a personal trainer, and the importance of creating good communication and being vulnerable with your clients, meeting them where they're at with their health intentions, and making sure they're enjoying themselves at the gym.   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset   If Geoff's name sounds familiar, you might know him from his knowledge in kettlebells and the fact that Dan John is also his brother-in-law. I had a great conversation with Geoff learning all about his experiences and what makes Mark Fish Fitness unlike any other gym out there. Can't wait for you to listen to it! Especially if you're a fellow personal trainer, there's so much great advice packed in this episode. In this episode, you will learn: How MFF is helping people discover their love for health and fitness in a welcoming atmosphere. Why it's totally okay if you're not a match with your client. How MFF makes it a priority to make sure people are well in the loop about their workout program and if clients are happy. A "park bench workout" vs. a "bus bench workout" for fitness goals explained. How the trainers at MFF are constantly trying to improve themselves as trainers by learning how to be better communicators. How to handle criticism from your client, situations, and conflict as a personal trainer.

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?   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! 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.     About Ingrid Marcum As Ingrid traveled the world training and competing as a multi-sport athlete, she was fortunate enough to build a career helping others reach their own fitness and athletic goals.

Dan John's Ten Commandments of Fitness - Ep. 248

Success is really nothing more than the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. This means that any person who knows what they are doing and where they are going is a success. Any person with a goal towards which they are working is a successful person.- Earl Nightingale   This week, All-American discus thrower, strength coach, author, and instructor, Dan John, returned to Open Sky Fitness to discuss his Ten Commandments of Fitness, the power of learning through failure, and all about his brand new book, 40 Years With a Whistle. Furthermore, you'll listen to Rob and Dan discuss: Why you should find something unique about yourself to set yourself from the rest and how to do it. How Dan tries to look at the world in a different light than everybody else. Dan's advice for getting anything you want in life and how to create one that you love by standing out. How to stay on top of your game in health and life. The differences between a pirate map and shark habits plus how Dan uses them in his life.   Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset     Dan John's Ten Commandments In Fitness: 1. Constant assessment 2. Constant upgrading 3. Ignore perfect 4. This isn’t moral theology—there are no “good” or “bad” exercises or systems 5. Everything works! 6. Achieving a goal versus achieving success (not the same thing…sadly) 7. After the peak is the cliff 8. Self-discipline is a finite resource 9. Fundamentals trump everything else 10. Take a moment to appreciate those who went before you.   40 Years With A Whistle by Dan John Click here to get your copy of 40 Years With a Whistle by Dan John When I was a child, people used to tell me that “your life flashes before your eyes” just before you die. As I was writing 40 Years with a Whistle, I laughed a few times out loud as my past kept flashing before my eyes. “All in all, this wasn’t a bad life, but I would prefer to live a bit longer” This book has been ruminating in my brain for a while. In 2011, I popped open my first lifting journal from 1971 and realized I had been keeping track of my workouts for 40 years. So, I wrote a two-part article on the lessons I had learned (Part One, Part Two); very simply, it was 40 lessons from 40 years. Last summer as I was coaching next to a throwing cage at St. Mary’s in Twickenham, London, a local coach asked me how I could “see all of this.” I responded, “Well, you know, I have been doing this for…” It took me a minute to figure out that I had been standing in fields, yelling in weight rooms and making half-time adjustments for the past 40 years. Maybe it’s my background in religious studies and education, but 40 years always seems to get my bells ringing. Walking back to my place that night, I kept trying to figure out how the 40 years had gone by so fast. In a flash, so to speak. Everything coalesced when Ron McKeefery asked me to write the introduction to his book, Weight Room Wisdom. As I thought about wisdom in the weight room, it was obvious that my coaching methods came directly from Dick Notmeyer and the Pacifica Bar Bell Club. But there was more to Dick than just reps and sets. He was a master storyteller. I was going through a rough time at home and his stories always showed me the path, the route, to success. Showing up every day, getting the work done and avoiding stupidity would lead ultimately to success in all areas of life. I have discovered no better truism in my life. Writing the introduction to Ron’s book made we want to tell more stories about other mentors who shaped my career. I began to dig into my past and I realized how many people have coached me. Literally, a coach is something that carries one from here to there. I have been carried many times in my life through bad times and disasters. I have arrived successfully many times and I needed to make sure I thank those who got me there.   About Dan John Dan John has spent his life with one foot in the world of lifting and throwing, and the other foot in academia. An All-American discus thrower, Dan has also competed at the highest levels of Olympic lifting, Highland Games and the Weight Pentathlon, an event in which he holds the American record. Dan spends his work life blending weekly workshops and lectures with full-time writing and is also an online religious studies instructor for Columbia College of Missouri. As a Fulbright Scholar, he toured the Middle East exploring the foundations of religious education systems. Dan is also a Senior Lecturer for St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London. His books, on weightlifting, include Intervention, Never Let Go, Mass Made Simple and Easy Strength, written with Pavel Tsatsouline as well as From Dad, To Grad. He and Josh Hillis co-authored “Fat Loss Happens on Monday.” In 2015, Dan wrote Can You Go? on his approach to assessments and basic training. In addition, Before We Go, another compilation akin to Never Let Go became an Amazon Bestseller. In early 2017, Dan’s book, Now What?, his approach to Performance and dealing with “life,” became a Bestseller on Amazon. Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge became available in September 2017, too.

Building Body Confidence with the Fit Bottomed Girls - Ep. 236

Can you imagine what the women in this world could do if they weren't worried about the number on the scale? - Jennipher Walters on what insight her intuitive dietitian had given her. This week, Rob had an amazing discussion with Podcast Hosts, Personal Coaches at Fit Bottomed Girls, and Creators of the Love Your Body. Love Your Life online course, Jennipher Walters and Kristen Seymour. Both women shared their own wellness journeys, how they went from student to personal trainer, and how Fit Bottomed Girls has evolved since 2008.

Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset Special BONUS for Open Sky Fitness Podcast Listeners: Get $100 off of the Love Your Body. Love Your Life online course when you enter the code, New FBG. Both Jenn and Kristen are on a mission to share their You Can't Hate Yourself Healthy approach to both men and women to inspire them to give up their diets and focus on enjoying their lives rather than allowing the number on the scale to determine their happiness. Through Fit Bottomed Girls, Jenn and Kristen are leading voices in combating the negative messages that the media spreads about what it means to be healthy. It is their mission to help people boost their body confidence and self-image through courses, couching, books, podcast interviews, and more. On This Episode: As you listen, Rob, Jenn, and Kristen discuss: How you can create healthy habits by first focusing on what you love such as your favorite exercise and foods before you challenge yourself. Why our poor body image and self-confidence is actually a wake-up call that there is something deeper that needs our attention. Why you can't have the mindset that you must restrict your nutrition while working out hard or training for endurance events. Why some people with tendencies such as Rebels or Upholders might have difficulty with focusing on their self-love and how they can overcome it with a unique approach that works for them. How important it is to do a self-audit of where you are now and where you want to be in the future.   "It's okay to eat the foods you want or need to eat. We tend to moralize food but you're not good for eating a salad nor bad for eating ice cream." - Kristen Seymour About Fit Bottomed Girls It began as a single blog with a tongue-in-cheek play on a Queen song. Today, the Fit Bottomed World, run by Jennipher Walters and Kristen Seymour (who are certified fitness professionals but also just everyday regular women), is an online phenomenon reaching millions of women (and men!) each month. And, of course, the focus is always on the idea that fit bottoms come in all shapes and sizes — and that you’re more than the number on the scale. (And they know because they’ve been there. Read Jenn’s personal story here, and Kristen’s here.) True pioneers of the body-positive movement, Jennipher Walters and Erin Whitehead began Fit Bottomed Girls in 2008 as friends looking for a fun, fresh and no-diet approach to being healthy. Months after the site launched, it took off — readers were clearly hungry for something other than “how to lose 10 pounds in 10 minutes and get the perfect man.” Infusing their own experiences (both failures and successes) they created a community of “FBGs” — welcoming everyone in, including writer Kristen Seymour, who would later become a business partner. From there, the Fit Bottomed Girls expanded into new verticals and products to serve its growing readership, including Fit Bottomed Mamas, Fit Bottomed Eats, a book, Fit Bottomed Zen, a podcast and the online course Love Your Body. Love Your Life. In 2017, Erin left the company to pursue other interests and focus on her family, while the Fit Bottomed World expanded into more speaking engagements, retreats, and brand consulting. Jenn and Kristen also continue to work with major brands such as Brooks Running, Marshall’s and Pure Protein on campaigns and other influencer projects that are fully aligned with the Fit Bottomed Girls’ mission. In fact, Jenn and Kristen were named as one of The 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness by Greatist in 2016 and 2017, and were listed as one of the best healthy living bloggers of 2018 by Healthline. And the one thing that will never, ever change is the company’s mission to continue to let women (and men!) know that you simply can’t hate yourself healthy. Let Us Coach You On The Podcast!

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   Click here for the entire show notes Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset     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   The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin Get your copy of The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin here In 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.

She’s the author of many books, including the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers The Four Tendencies, Better Than Before, and The Happiness Project. She has an enormous readership, both in print and online, and her books have sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide. On her top-ranking podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, she discusses happiness and good habits with her sister Elizabeth Craft. (Gretchen is an Upholder, Elizabeth is an Obliger). Gretchen Rubin has been interviewed by Oprah, eaten dinner with Daniel Kahneman, walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama, had her work written up in a medical journal, and been an answer on the game show Jeopardy!

We can control our health's destiny; it's not luck and the right foods enable us not just to prevent but reverse diseases unless they're in the super advanced stages. This is a positive message that also tastes delicious and can be made into a diet style that people prefer to eat. - Dr. Joel Fuhrman   Click here for the entire show notes Please leave us a review at http://reviewourpodcast.com Join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast Facebook Group! Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset   This week, we have six-time New York Times best-selling author and nutritional researcher who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods, Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the show to talk about the Nutritarian Diet, what GBOMBS foods are and how to prepare them, plus his stance on popular oils such as coconut and olive oil and whether or not they're actually as healthy for us as we believe to be true. It was a great interview with him and I learned so much about which foods are best eaten raw or cooked, how to transform your taste buds to love tasty, nutritious meals, and all about his resources and events including retreats and his latest books, Fast Food Genocide and Eat to Live Quick & Easy Cookbook.   As you listen, you will also find out all about: What a Nutritarian is and what the foundations of it are. Why it will take you a couple of months to adjust to a new way of eating not only for your taste buds but for an emotional transition to happen as well.

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.

Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset!   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 Did 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   About Chris DiVecchio Chris DiVecchio, Founder & Trainer of Premier Mind & Body, brings a wealth of self-development transformation mixed with a very practical technique to his fitness training. Coming from a bodybuilding background and a D1 collegiate hockey career, Chris realized that he wanted to teach his simple techniques and strategies to help others achieve both physical and mental acuity.
