Many of my listeners are asking for the show to be on TuneIn Radio, so here I am! This is a health & fitness podcast from the perspective of a guy who's been there, lived it, and "gets it". I started as a 300 lb couch potato... and now, life is completely different. I became a 175 lb ultramarathon runner, a personal trainer, and a coach to those trying to do the same.

#100 - Fitness - The Journey To A Better Life.

10/6/2018
More
We've been talking about "fitness" wrong. There's more to fitness than working out and eating "right". We need to look at a more complete picture, and adjust our understanding and approach. Physical health is just one part of "fitness". Whenever you hear about fitness, the only things that tend to be talked about are working out and eating right. When we talk "fitness", we only seem to comprehend it as physical fitness. THAT is a problem - big news, guys -...

Yes, I know. You were probably expecting this upload to be Episode 100, weren't you? Well - it's not. Instead, I'm here to tell you WHY, a hint of what's coming, and a special preview of our special something else.

Life is funny sometimes. Every once in a while, our lives are affected in the most profound way. Often, the catalyst is something we never would’ve expected.

#98 - How To Know If You're Training Or Just Working Out

9/7/2018

Reaching a goal isn't as easy as "go work out". Unfortunately, most people seem to think it is. What's so bad about "working out", though? Why do I need to be "training"? (Disclosure - this post may contain affiliate links. Price is the same, & a portion of the sale supports this site & podcast.Yay! All opinions are my own, never bought or sold.) Training is the road to success. Working out is a hamster wheel. It's easy to fall into the trap of "working out" when you think you're...

#97 - Adventure, Hydration, And A Culture Of Care

9/1/2018

Sometimes the best things happen by accident. Sometimes an idea develops into something you weren't expecting. That's what happened with this podcast episode. It's also what happened with Orange Mud and their hydration products. In chatting with Josh Sprague (Founder & CEO of Orange Mud) I learned all about his adventures, hydration on the trail, and the culture of care that's developed at Orange Mud. I love when I hear things like this. I have a habit of setting myself up for success...

#96 - Mollie Tibbetts, Safety, And "What Do We Do Now?"

Another tragedy we didn't need. Some news hit yesterday that rocked a small town, and runners everywhere, to their core. Who is Mollie Tibbetts, what happened, and how do we move forward... and stay safe? There are few things worse than a life cut short. Mollie Tibbetts was by all accounts a wonderful person. She was 20 years old, enjoying summer break before Junior year at U of Iowa, and staying healthy. She had big dreams, a great attitude, and was well-liked - kind of what you hope...

#95 - Oppressive Heat and Humidity - And How To Survive It

8/17/2018

There's "hot", and there's "dangerous hot". Sure - you understand how to deal with "hot" weather with your outdoor activity. How do you know, though, when it's TOO hot? What does humidity do to things? How do you read the signs, and how do you stay safe? We do this dance every summer. Just about every fitness blog out there writes a "summer fitness tips" blog post of some sort. Honestly, it's all always the same stuff. It's not even hard... it's stuff we all know. It's obvious. Things...

Nobody said it was going to be easy. Whatever you're after, it's going to have its challenges. They say "if you want it bad enough you'll find a way". What happens, though, when you find you haven't been wanting it as bad as you thought? My priorities have been off. See - I was one of those people that THOUGHT he knew how bad he wanted a thing, and I thought I was prioritizing my life appropriately. But after falling behind in my running and overall fitness for quite some time, and...

#93 - Understanding How To Keep Your Heart Strong And Healthy

6/28/2018

We aren't doing enough. What is heart disease, is "cardio" really treadmills and bikes, and how does it all work together? The answer may surprise you. "Cardio" isn't what you think... We have this idea that "cardio" is running and cycling. That it's treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. When we think of fitness we think "cardio" and "weights". Good news is... your idea of "cardio" is a bit off, and so is your idea of how to approach fitness in general. But that's not today's topic. Today...

#92 - The Problem With Free, Cheap, And No Commitment Fitness

Free and cheap isn't always good. Free and cheap fitness is always an attractive option, but there's a major downside to it that most people don't often consider. What have you got to lose? We have, somehow, been conditioned to look for the cheapest thing when we're embarking on a fitness journey. The more stuff you'll give us, the bigger the gym, and the lower the price tag - the more we like it. We judge a gym's value on how much we get and how little we can pay. And if you want to...

#91 - Is Your Brain Constantly Undermining Your Efforts

6/8/2018
More
The list of obstacles never shrinks. If it's not one thing, it's another. Now, it seems, our own brains are working against us in our health & fitness efforts. But how, exactly? And how do we fight back? No, friend - you are mistaken. Health and fitness is always, it seems, harder than it has to be. If it's not one thing working against us, so we believe, it's another. Often times this is merely our perception and not, in fact, the truth. More often than not, the universe is not working...

"Oh wow - that's crazy!" When we do things that aren't "normal", people don't know what to make of it. But... why is "normal"... normal? We understand how the world works. Every day we go about our lives with a certain understanding of how things are. We know what to expect. How things are typically going to go. What we can and can't do - should and shouldn't do. We know what to expect of our peers, too - all the same! Things that fall in the realm of the ordinary. So when someone does...
