Episode 112 Laurie Jimenez - Relentless Minds Podcast, Host / Conquer Your Day Program, Creator

 

“...embrace where you came from…” “...ignore the outside noise and be aware of when you are conforming to social norms.” “I take full responsibility of EVERYTHING in my life.” -Laurie Jimenez

 

In Episode 112, the Two Fit Crazies welcome the “relentless mind” of Laurie Jimenez! Laurie joins the Fit Crazies from Alexandria, Virginia where she is currently working as a dental hygienist by day, but an advocate for EVERYONE who wishes to own their own story and create the life they deserve. Laurie talks about how her experience breaking free from a “cult-like” religion and then excommunicated by her church, family and friends lead to her to a period of darkness; a period that she needed to experience in order to wake-up and rewire her brain. 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!

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!

Kindra Hall - Professional Storyteller/Keynote Speaker/Mother & Wife/Author: ​ Stories That Stick - Episode 106

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone 

 

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!

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!
