In Episode 110, the Two Fit Crazies welcomed back Dr. Jason Karp to the show for the third time! Obviously, the Fit Crazies love speaking with the incredibly intelligent Dr. Karp about the latest developments in exercise science to improve all aspects of running. This time, Dr. Karp speaks about his newest endeavors such as: enrolling in  an MBO program at San Diego State, coaching an elite team of Rev02lution Running  athletes from around the globe, writing another book about how physical activity,  specifically running, affects sexual behavior, and creating a Run-Fit Kenyan running  camp after his experience training at the High Altitude Training Camp in Iten, Kenya.  Needless to say, whether you are an avid runner or just looking for ways to improve your health and fitness through walking or running, Dr. Jason Karp dishes out all the science about how running WILL improve your life. This episode will not disappoint!  Brian and I have a great time learning about the benefits of “more sex” in relation to  improved athletic performance (we try so hard to be mature about this) and Dr. Karp  delves into what he learned from running with the Kenyans and submerging himself in  their culture.

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!

In Episode 101, the Two Fit Crazies have the honor of hosting, in studio, a Brian’s longtime friend and friend of the show, Bryan Price to hear of his Forrest Gump-like journey in athletics, military, leadership roles, coaching, his love of #sports and Mental Skills Training, which has become his passionate pursuit as he enters civilian life. As intriguing as ever, Bryan will have you slapping the floor ready to “D Up” anything that comes your way.

Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Bryan C. 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). He also served as an assistant coach (infield/first base coach) on the team during the 2010 and 2013 seasons, which included a Patriot League Championship and a trip to the NCAA Regionals.

Bryan truly is an incredible man.

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone 

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!

Episode 99 - Matthew Long - ATHLETE-SURVIVOR- SPEAKER

Former NYC Firefighter

The Long Run, Author

Motivational Speaker, WME Speakers

Orangetheory Fitness Danbury, CT Franchisee

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!

Bart Yasso - The Mayor of Running - Episode 81

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone

Episode 81 – Bart Yasso - The Mayor of Running

“Never limit where running can take you.” Bart Yasso

In Episode 81, the Two Fit Crazies had the honor of speaking with the great Bart Yasso. Affectionately known as the “Mayor of Running”, Bart goes deep into his journey and life in running. Recently retired after 21 years at Runner’s World where he held the title of Chief Running Officer, Bart takes us from his first run in “cutoff jeans and a Budweiser t-shirt” to the “world’s toughest footrace” through Death Valley to a 5k in a nudist colony. And an interview with Bart would never be complete without getting the lowdown on the famous workout created by and named for him – the Yasso 800s, stating that “There isn’t a day that someone doesn’t mention Yasso 800’s.”

Bart is an incredibly genuine person with a passion for running and life. It felt like we were old friends catching up after some time apart. An inspiration to all that cross his path, we hope that you enjoy this episode as much as we did.

 

Yours in Fitness (and running),

Brian and Christine – The Two Fit Crazies

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!

Brian's Kick Ass, PR, Philly Marathon Recap - Episode 69

Episode 69 – Brian’s Kick Ass, PR, Philly Marathon Recap.

Whenever a Fit Crazy puts their butt on the line, we get a recap. Ironman, marathons, birthday marathons, big events, Boston Marathon heartbreak? You name it. If there is a big Fit Crazy performance, you’re getting a Recap Show. And here in Episode 69, Brian and Christine give you just that.

Coming off his HUGE Philly Marathon 2 hour 48 minute 42 second (2:48:42), PR, Brian gives us the low down on his gigantic effort in the City of Brotherly Love. What did this guy just win an Oscar? You’d think the guy actually put the crack in the Liberty Bell! Too bad! It’s a Fit Crazy performance worthy of a Fit Crazy Recap!

Hear of the preparation, motivation, genesis of his love for running and all that went into making the run happen, including the inspirational run the day prior to the race by a very special cross-country team that he’s been lucky enough to be a part of this season.

All in all, if feeling good makes you feel good, this one will make you feel good. We Love It When We’re Having The Best Time!!!!!

 

Please Enjoy!

Yours in Good Health!

Suzelle Snowden - Fit Bodies, Inc. President

In episode #68, the Two Fit Crazies had a blast with Suzelle Snowden! Suzelle is the creator and president of Fit Bodies, Inc, a company that holds contracts with tons of high-end all-inclusive resorts across the Caribbean, South America, and soon-to-be in Europe. Have you ever been to Secrets? Club Med? Sandals? Beaches? Breezes? If so, then you would have come across a Fit Bodies Inc. fitness professional! And did you know they were staying there for free?

Suzelle shares her story of how Fit Bodies came to be after she jumped in to teach a step class for an injured instructor while on vacation in Jamaica. Fast-forward 20 years, Fit Bodies Inc. now has over 35,000 members and works with over 90 resorts. If you are a fitness professional who loves to share their passion for fitness, a teaching vacation is for you! Stay in high-end resorts, teach fitness classes in paradise, and bring up to 3 people for FREE!  WHAT?!?!

In addition, “Fit Crazy Christine”, a member of Fit Bodies Inc. since 2003, reconnects with Suzelle after 13 years and shares her own experiences staying in some of the best resorts in Jamaica and Mexico. Finally, the Two Fit Crazies get Suzelle to open up about her experiences running 50k to 100 mile races and the fact that she is also the head of the Jeff Galloway Training Program in her area! Seriously, Suzelle “walks the walk” and every fit pro needs to check out Fit Bodies Inc!

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast

Episode 64 – Data, Technology and Apps – The Best of Times? Or the Worst of Times?

 

In Episode 64 Christine and Brian chat about the “Pros and Cons” and the necessity, or lack of, surrounding the incredible amount of technology, apps and tools, designed to benefit our health, at our disposal in today’s marketplace.

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? What happens when our gadgets break (we’re looking at you Garmin)? Does common science lack common sense? With everything that’s out there now, what will they possibly think of next?

Find out what the Two Fit Crazies have to say on the topic here in Episode 64 of the Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast.

 

Yours In Good Health!
