Peace on Earth Goodwill Towards Men (Except for the Self Proclaimed Guru) - The TFCs Navigate the Holidays - Episode 70

Episode 70

Peace on Earth Goodwill Towards Men (Except for the Self-Proclaimed Gurus) - The TFCs Navigate the Holidays

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”

-John Wooden

 

In Episode 70, the Two Fit Crazies will help you face the Bermuda Triangle of Holidays. This is what Brian refers to as the time between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Stress levels are high, diets suffer, workouts are set aside, money is tight, sleep is at a minimum, and there is NEVER enough time in the day to get everything done. The holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, right?

On top of that, everywhere you look there are self-proclaimed “gurus” and “experts” on television, social media, and more that make unsubstantiated promises that have all the answers, so you can live YOUR BEST LIFE. They seem to have “it” all figured out. Do this. Eat and drink that. Buy this. In actuality, no one has it all figured out….and that’s okay! Christine and Brian offer their advice on how to identify and avoid being duped by false claims and how to embrace things, people, and ideas in life that brings you joy! There is not ONE thing in life that will solve all of your problems. Take a little something from everyone out there, and if you don’t believe us, go read some quotes from John Wooden!

Peace, Love, and Joy…to almost everyone!

Are these advancements our greatest allies in achieving great health? Has the pendulum swung too far? Have we become too reliant on tech and data?

Knowing Your Worth and the Value of Your Time - Episode 63

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast

Episode 63 - Knowing Your Worth and the Value of Your Time

 

In Episode 63 the Two Fit Crazies discuss, the commodities, time and money and how they relate to our health, our training and the life of professional trainers and coaches.

The two things most commonly heard when we speak with clients, potential or otherwise, is:

A.      “I don’t have the time.”

and

B.      Joining a gym or having a trainer and/or coach “is too expensive.”

 

In Episode 63, Brian and Christine discuss solutions for making this work. In addition, they discuss the reasons why the industry standards for trainers and coaches are as such and the reasons why clients should seek only the best.  

Whether it is money or time, be sure to spend it wisely!

 

Yours In Good Health!

What's Holding You Back? - Episode 58

On Episode 58 of the Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast, Brian and Christine recap an awesome Episode 57 with the great fellas from Pure Focus Sports Club. What a great time that Episode was. Old school gym owners discussing the ins and out of power lifting and body building! It’s a classic!

From there they lead into their topic du jour. “What’s Holding You Back?” It’s an interesting topic in that it is something that we hear often and know all too well.

I/You/We know that I/you/we should be doing something differently, but just don’t always do that thing that I/you/we know that we should be doing. Something is holding you back from doing what must be done.

So, What Is It? What Is Holding You Back?

The answer is yours. It’s personal. If we were playing Family Feud, the most common answer on the board would Fear. Fear runs deep and wears many hats. Fear can be associated with danger. Fear is anxiety. Fear is uncertainty. Fear is societal pressures or judgement. Fear can be monetary. For all to many, fear is most often connected to failure. Fear of Failure is a gigantic deterrent to many. All of this is enough for many to do the worst thing, which is nothing.

Making Changes in life, career, relationships, diet, activity, lifestyle, performance, etc. is rarely done on a whim. Conclusions are made long before action is taken. We know what needs to be done. In Episode 58, the Two Fit Crazies ask you to dig deep any proclaim that “thing” that is getting in the way of you and your next stage of living your best life. Again, the answers are yours. But know that there is gold on the other side of doing what you know is best.

So, what is it? What is holding you back?

Let Us Know! We Got You Back

With Love!

Two Fit Crazies!!!!
