Episode 111 - Andrew Gavigan - Most Fit Works, Owner/Beyond the Squat Podcast, Host/Aktiv Solutions, Director of Education  

  “...find meaning and purpose in your work in order to find it fulfilling.”  -Andrew Gavigan   

In Episode 111, the Two Fit Crazies welcome the amazing Andrew Gavigan to the podcast! Coming to us from just outside of Los Angeles, Andrew reveals how his  experience touring the U.S. with his band, living out of his car, and smoking packs of  cigarettes eventually lead him to stumble upon Capoeira, a form of martial arts that  inspired him to quit smoking, drop weight, create his own fitness company, host a  podcast, and more! Andrew talks about his journey to become a personal trainer so he could help others get healthy and live more fulfilling lives beyond the walls of the gym. Andrew, now in his thirties, is currently a fitness educator for top fitness conventions in the country while he is also pursuing his BS in Psychology with a minor in Economics. Andrew is determined to bring Behavior Economics into the forefront of the health and fitness industry and Brian and Christine “geeked out” with Andrew about how to better incentivize company leaders and employees to embrace corporate wellness and improve employee experience! Be ready to be inspired!    

Thank You Andrew!

Much Love,

Two Fit Crazies

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!

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!
