Episode 106 - Kindra Hall - Professional Storyteller/Keynote Speaker/Mother & Wife/Author: Stories That Stick (Pre-Order your book at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Indie Book, etc.…) 

 

 “I didn’t recognize storytelling as a talent; it was something I just did.”  “I have always kind of been the “Gonzo.” What am I?”  “...all these little things...moments in my life have value...significance… I can do this!  -Kindra Hall   

 

In Episode 106, The Two Fit Crazies are captivated by the amazingly talented Kindra Hall. After Christine met Kindra and listened to her deliver an extremely poignant and inspirational keynote address to thousands of fitness professionals at the Orangetheory Fitness Summit in early 2019, she knew that Kindra was a diamond in the rough! Kindra, who is a professional storyteller, keynote speaker, author, mother, and wife, first made her storytelling debut in 5th grade when she began recounting the story of The Giant’s Big Toe in front of her fellow elementary school students.  Kindra then reveals her own “story” about how storytelling leads her to take part in the National Storytelling Festival in Tennessee, try out for the Concordia University, Wisconsin talent show, begin keynote speaking, and eventually write Stories That Stick! Kindra also discusses the process and the purpose of storytelling and how it can play an intricate part in successfully building, branding, and marketing any business or foster more meaningful relationships. Kindra admits that, like others, her road to  success has been paved with risk, faith and “straight-up hustle,” but by keeping an “audience forward” mindset, delivering a clear message, and accepting that you must  embrace trial and error, you will achieve your goals. Get your paper and pencils ready and let’s “flex your empathy muscles!” What is your story?

Episode 105   Elian Haan - Wellness Coach/Yoga, Tai Chi, Mediation Program Director/Fitness Presenter

  “... I bring the mind, body, and spirit to make people understand that they don’t need to take something, but do something.”  -Elian Haan     

In Episode 105, the Two Fit Crazies welcomed a beautiful soul by the name of Elian Haan. Joining the show from Dallas, Texas, although originally from the Netherlands, Elian shares her amazing story of how her love for dance, movement, and fitness lead her to overcome some of the most difficult moments in her life. After attending a dance academy in Amsterdam as a child and later earning a degree in Art/Theatre History from the University of Amsterdam, Elian shares how her love for movement led her to seek a career in dance. Elian talks about the impact that fitness icons such as Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons inspired her to become certified to teach  fitness, but as Elian delves into her own journey of self-discovery, she discusses how  losing both of her parents and moving to the U.S. for an short-lived marriage, lead  her to “hit rock bottom.” Surprisingly, there was a time when all that Elian owned was what she carried in her backpack and the “things” she took to mask her pain.  Elian reveals how her love for fitness saved her life and inspired her to create Better Body Basics, her fitness studio, outside of Dallas, Texas. In addition, Elian now serves as a teacher at the Addiction Campus of America where she infuses mindful and movement practices to patients who are fighting to overcome addiction. The former SCW Fitness Presenter of the Year, we welcome Elian Haan to the Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast.  Be ready to be inspired!

As intriguing as ever, Bryan will have you slapping the floor ready to “D Up” anything that comes your way.

Price, Ph.D. is the founder of Top Mental Game, a provider of professional coaching and mental skills training for athletes in high school, college, and the professional ranks. He is also the founding Executive Director of the Buccino Leadership Institute at Seton Hall University. Prior to starting Top Mental Game and joining Seton Hall in 2018, he spent the first half of a 20-year Army career in operational assignments as an Apache helicopter pilot, including combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. From 2012-2018, he was an Academy Professor in the Department of Social Sciences and the Director of the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at the U.S. Military Academy. He is known for his published research on terrorist leadership and organizational behavior, and he is the author of Targeting Top Terrorists: Understanding Leadership Removal in Counterterrorism Strategy by Columbia University Press. He holds a B.S. from the U.S. Military Academy in U.S. history, an M.A. in international relations from St. Mary’s University (TX), and an M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from Stanford University.  In his role as the CTC Director, he was asked to testify in front of Congress and frequently briefed the nation’s top counterterrorism leaders, including the Secretary of Defense, Directors of the CIA, and multiple combatant commanders. At West Point, he was a three-year starter and team captain on the baseball team, setting school records in career and season runs scored as well as hits in a season. A three-time All-Patriot League selection, Price was named on the Patriot League All-Decade Team (1990-2000).

Episode 100 - Jesse Itlzer – Entrepreneur/Author/Endurance Athlete 

New York Times Best-Selling Author, Living With a Seal & Living With Monks  

Owner, NBA Atlanta Hawks

Cofounder, Marquis Jets & Former Partner, Zico Coconut Water 

 

 

“Get your feet in the door and then figure it out! Ride the momentum!” 

“Welcome the unknown and learn from it!”  -Jesse Itzler 

 

Happy 100th Episode/Birthday/Anniversary! We f’ing made it!

In this episode, the Two Fit Crazies go BIG as they welcome the AMAZING Jesse Itzler! Jesse joins the best “party” in the world to shed some light on how to build your “life’s resume.” Through Jesse’s ability to think BACKWARDS, he then was able to “write the end of the movie...but then you just have to write the script.” This seemed to work for Jesse Itzler since he first made a name for himself as a rapper on MTV in the 1990’s. Since then, Jesse went on to write the theme song for the New York Knicks, found Marquis Jets, own Zico Coconut Water, and even own the Atlanta Hawks. Although Jesse’s “life resume” is super impressive, Jesse is someone who “walks the walk.” He is a true giver and believes in the power of relationships, but he also believes that, at the end of the day, we all want the same thing: “we want to feel good!”

In this episode, Jesse shares his insight on the importance of fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness as it relates to happiness and success. Even after living with David Goggins for a month and then living with monks, Jesse continues to crave new experiences. He has created events, or “Experiences,” for others to quit the mundane and invest in themselves. Climb mountains, camp in the wilderness, and BUILD THAT LIFE RESUME!  Hear more from the AWESOME Jesse Itzler and find out about how to register for an upcoming event or workshop on Episode 100!

ATHLETE-SURVIVOR- SPEAKER

 

“Why did it happen...and why did I live?”

“...Turn your burners on and fire-up the human spirit!”

-Matt Long

 

In Episode 99, the Two Fit Crazies are left speechless from the most amazingly inspirational story of one man’s battle for survival after being hit by a 40-ton bus on the streets of New York City at 5:30AM on December 22nd, 2005. With a 1% chance for survival even after receiving over 68 units of blood, Matt Long was not about to give up. As a NYC firefighter, triathlete, marathoner, and IRONMAN at the time of the accident, Matt discusses how his elite fitness level “literally” saved his life. Although Matt champions an “I WILL” attitude, he also shares what it was like to wish his mother had prayed for him to die instead of having to endure the slow and painful process of rehabilitating a body that was practically sliced in two. Unbelievably, Matt not only survived the day he and his bicycle were crushed beneath the 10” space between a charter bus and the asphalt, but also recalls the mental journey to recovery! After more than 40 operations and years of rehabilitation, Matt has since returned to the New York City Marathon, IRONMAN Lake Placid, cycling, and even holds 8 world records for the indoor rower! Matt also discuss his inspirational book, The Long Run, as well as his love for public speaking engagements and why he decided to be a franchisee for Orangetheory Fitness. Prepare to be inspired!

Roberta Groner - World Class Runner/Full Time Nurse/Mother of Three - Episode 96

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone Podcast

Episode 96 – Roberta Groner – World Class Runner – Full Time Nurse – Mother of 3

In Episode 96 the Fit Crazies have the honor of rapping with the ridiculously fast and remarkably humble Super Mom, Roberta Groner, age 41, of Randolph, NJ. Literally, just 2 hours off the plane home, Roberta gives us the low down on her phenomenal, news making 2:29:06, 5th place performance against a world class field at the Rotterdam Marathon.

To put it simply, Roberta has a story for the ages. After competitive high school and, albeit shortened, collegiate careers, running went away. Roberta spent the next decade building her career in nursing and starting a family. But a flame was rekindled after joining some office cohorts and running the Pittsburg Half Marathon just 10 years ago. This led to a marathon in Chicago and an impressive 3-hour 12-minute (3:12) debut. But she was just getting started, a Sub 3 hour run in her second marathon was followed by races in the 2:40’s and then a true burst onto the scene with her 2:37 victory at the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon in 2016. Just Flying!!!!

All of this, along with a 2:30:38, 3rd place finish at the California International Marathon in 2017 has stamped Roberta’s place among the nation’s and world’s elites.

In fact, we’d bet that if the 41-year-old, full time nurse, divorced mother of three had rubbed a lamp and was granted running wishes, Roberta probably would have sold herself short in what she wished for.

What’s it like to run a 2:29 and an IAAF/Olympic Standard?

At 41 years of age, while still working full time and a divorced mother of three, how does she fit it all in?

What are the differences in training blocks as she continues to grow as a runner?

What is it like working with a new coach in Steve Magness?

Do her boys know how cool their mom is?  

What are her nutrition and recovery routines like?

What is her advice for and/or secret to success?

And most importantly; What’s Next???? #KFG

 

Whatever your role in athletics or fitness or life, Roberta’s story is not to be missed!

Get Your Inspiration Here, In Episode 96!

 

Let’s Roll!

Episode 95- Dr. Sebastian Gonzales DC, CCSP, CSCS, RMSK Performance Sportscare/Podcast Host/Author

“...fitness is the stepping stone toward the other result.”  “...physical therapy...the end goal is to be an athlete again, not just rehab…”  -Dr. Sebastian Gonzales     

 

In Episode 95 of Two Fit Crazies & a Microphone podcast, we had a blast talking with Dr. Sebastian Gonzales of Huntington Beach, California. Dr. Gonzales, an accomplished Sports Chiropractor and Human Movement Specialist, shares how his experiences rehabilitating childhood injuries lead him to re-evaluate the goals of physical therapy. Dr. Gonzales believes that we first need to examine why we believe we are injured or why we believe we “can’t” do something. Only then, we can begin to “unravel the yarn” and work towards standing and lasting results.  Dr. Gonzales also offers a unique perspective on the state of therapy and the way in which you should view rehabilitating injuries. Dr. Gonzales also gives out some awesome tips from his latest book, I Will Beat Back Pain as well as awesome advice from his podcast, RESTORING HUMAN MOVEMENT!

“Educate kids...mold their way of thinking…  allow them to make better decisions.”  - Matt Snyder   

In Episode 92 the Two Fit Crazies were dreaming of paradise with the amazing Matt Snyder who ZOOMed in to hang out with us from the Aloha state. Mr. Snyder, who just happens to be a full-time PE teacher, soccer coach, Boy Scout leader and a passionate fitness professional, reveals the state of fitness as he sees it in Hawaii. Matt discusses how Hawaiian culture is infused into PE classes to make health and fitness relevant and educational on multiple levels. While also touching on what seems to be working and what needs to change to make our youth healthier individuals, Matt offers practical solutions for any age to live a more quality life. Outside of the PE realm, Matt truly “walks the walk.” After a very successful purchase of P90X and INSANITY LIVE off of their infomercials, Matt’s personal transformation has led him to become a successful Beachbody coach and fitness trainer who is determined to change lives and inspire the world to be a more fit and healthy place! Aloha!

Chandler Walker - Stone Age Fuel/"Chanslogic"/Culture of Care - Episode 89

Episode 89 

Chandler Walker - Stone Age Fuel/“Chanslogic”/Culture of Care     

 “The one thing that people will never forget is how you make them feel.”  -Chandler Walker   

In Episode 89, the Two Fit Crazies had a blast with Chandler Walker who “ZOOMed” in from a very cold and windy Reno, Nevada. Chandler, the mastermind behind “Chanslogic,” the founder of Stone Age Fuel, and the creator of Culture of Care, shares his amazing story of how growing up with 5 sisters and a degree in biochemistry and microbiology lead him to be a self-proclaimed “Health Detective.” In college, Chandler made startling discoveries about what was “really” in the supplements being offered to the public and traveled the nation giving seminars revealing the truth behind the labels. Chandler, now compelled to educate the masses, created his 5 Pillars of health to help his largely female-based clientele take action and take control of their lives. Through Chandler’s 8-week courses that focus on cognitive behavior therapy and an in-depth approach to disrupt unhealthy behaviors, he is making huge waves in the health and fitness industry!

 “Inspired by Love, Informed by Science” ™   

“Empowering women to train better for an event of a lifetime …. a major athletic event, motherhood.”  -Brittany Citron   

In Episode 87, the Two Fit Crazies had a blast learning all about PROnatal Fitness with founder, Brittany Citron! After years of working in the corporate world, Brittany’s unyielding passion for fitness and health eventually lead her to “challenge the norm” when it comes to pre and post-natal fitness. With two kids of her own, Brittany saw a gap in the medical and fitness industry with regards to exercising both before and after delivery. Brittany explains why both doctors and fitness professionals alike tend to give misinformation, or no information at all, to pregnant women about the importance of exercise.  Brittany created PROnatal Fitness to bridge this gap. If you are a personal or group fitness trainer, or simply want to learn more about the do’s and don’ts of pre and post-natal exercise, this episode is for YOU! Let’s all learn LIIT!  ….
