Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone Podcast

Episode 122 - Joel Matalon - RUNhabX- Owner, JoeFitnessWorld Coaching-Training-Living, CEO Chi Running/Chi Walking, Master & Director of Continuing Education ACE, Faculty Member

 

“Run happy instead of running hard...run with feeling...moving in all planes …to be a better person in any situation…” -Joel Matalon

 

In Episode 122, the Two Fit Crazies enjoyed an awesome conversation with Chi Running master, Joel Matalon. Joel is fascinated with the “WHY” behind running. As a young scrawny boy (his words, not ours) growing up in Queens, Joel recalls some very vivid memories about how running saved him from getting beat up by gang members and even enduring abuse by an unsuspecting adult figure in his life. However, Joel also shares the fact that he really didn’t start running until his dad promised him a soda if he ran around the block five times. Let’s just say that Joel REALLY liked soda and his dad always kept his promise! Joel discusses the ways in which he is now able to share his passion for running throughout the U.S. as a Master Chi Running/Walking Educator and how his expertise and experience is coveted by many who wish to hire him as a running coach. Presenting at major conferences around the world is in Joel’s plans as well as launching his newest venture called, The FitNantial Group. Joel is determined to help fellow fitness professionals control their fitness and finances to ensure they are making the best investments for their future! 

Joel Matalon is “where it’s at” on Episode 122! Enjoy!

Laurie’s story is both heart wrenching and miraculous, and in this episode, she reveals how she draws from her tumultuous past to inspire others to be more “relentless” through her own podcast, Relentless Minds. (Fit Crazy Christine even makes an appearance on one episode!) Laurie also reveals her new program, “Conquer the Day,” intended to provide people with a plan that will hold them accountable for their mind, body, and soul. Laurie Jimenez is RELENTLESS!

Rugby New Jersey - President KJ Fuery and Vice President Terry Matthews - Episode 108

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone 

Episode 108 - President KJ Fuery & Vice President Terry Matthews of Rugby New Jersey 

  “...work together...work on yourself first”   

“What can I do as a player to make my team better...my teammates better...make everything better?”   

“Rugby is the fastest growing team sport in the country.”     

Rugby New Jersey - Mission Statement: The goals of Rugby New Jersey are to promote, develop, support and increase the number of youth and High School rugby players in the State of New Jersey via a professionally run centralized administration structure.

In Episode 108, the Two Fit Crazies have a fantastic conversation with KJ Fuery and Terry Matthews, two amazingly passionate advocates for the sport of Rugby! Under the auspices of USA RUGBY, they are spearheading RUGBY New Jersey youth programs across the state. As the fastest growing team sport in the country, Rugby is not the rough, contact sport that is only for extreme athletes that people have been misled to believe. Terry and KJ talk about the ethos of Rugby and the awesome benefits that youth Rugby programs bring to not only kids, but also their parents. KJ and Terry discuss the emphasis that Rugby places on player accountability, the commitment that is expected both on and off the field, and the responsibility to values and character above all else. Did you know that all youth Rugby leagues, whether flag or contact, consist of a post-game meal provided by the home team so that players, parents, and coaches from both teams learn and practice respect for one another? KJ and Terry are out to make a difference in the lives of children across the state of New Jersey and beyond through the sport of Rugby! Reach out to them if you are interested in bringing Rugby to your community!

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?

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!
