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

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone 

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!

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!
