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!

Colin Dingelstad - Beyond Social Conditioning - Episode 86

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone 

Episode 86 

Colin Dingelstad - Beyond Social Conditioning, Owner/Director - Swalmen, Netherlands   

“Just do something! Try something simple...celebrate it!”  -Colin Dingelstad   

In Episode 86, the Two Fit Crazies took a trip to the Netherlands! We wish!  Instead, we had a great interview via ZOOM with an amazing transformational coach by the name of Colin Dingelstad. Colin joined us live from Swalmen in the Netherlands to share his story and perspective about the current state of health and fitness. Colin, a very successful transformational coach and owner of Beyond Social Conditioning, first became interested in learning about successful habits and improving “the self” while reading self-help books as a teenager. Although his goal at the time was to score more dates, his passion for improving the quality of life for himself and others was long-lasting. In this episode, Colin revealed his own “secrets to success” by going “beyond social conditioning” with each of his clients. He asks them to reflect deeply about their life through analyzing their movement, health, mindset, and more.  While Colin speaks about the current state of fitness and health in the Netherlands and the U.K., his messages about the importance of laughing, smiling, and happiness, are universal!      

 

Enjoy!  Two Fit Crazies

Valentine's Day - Yay or Nay? – The Two Fit Crazies Weigh In - Episode 82

Episode 82 - Valentine's Day - Yay or Nay? – The Two Fit Crazies Weigh In

As you’ll hear in Episode 82, the Two Fit Crazies have differing opinions on Valentine’s Day.  And so, we did one of our Pop-Up podcasts to get it off our chests. Unfortunately, this rare disagreement between the dynamic duo has left the show in an awkward limbo of sorts. So, they want to hear from you. Valentine’s Day – Yay or Nay?

Responses may (or may not – do you actually think we know what we are doing?) be heard on our airwaves in a future Pop-Up show. Let your Voices Be Heard! @ us brothers and sisters!

 Yay or Nay???!!!!!

 With Love (Everyday),

Christine and Brian

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

Tricia Silverman Wellness – Owner, Wellness Coach, Fitness Instructor, Employee Wellness

Northeastern University: Professor, Published Author

“If it grows in the ground, Falls from the tree, Swims in the sea…” -Tricia Silverman (nutrition advice learned from her grandfather)

In Episode 79, the Two Fit Crazies attempt to uncover “THE SECRET” to optimal health and longevity with Tricia Silverman, a nationally recognized health and wellness presenter and educator. Tricia recalls nutrition advice from her grandfather about the importance of eating “REAL FOOD” from the ground, not from a lab. Everything from the “actual” ingredients in your food, to her latest lecture, Food Deconstructed, is sure make you question the ingredients in your next meal. For example, what the heck is Xanthan Gum? Why are certain ingredients in our foods illegal in other countries? How do I know what foods are “healthy?” Tricia Silverman discusses the importance of educating oneself on ALL the current research such as the global longevity factors, a personal favorite of the Two Fit Crazies. We are talking “BLUE ZONES!” These are the areas on the globe with the most Centenarians, or people living to 100 or greater. The research speaks for itself! These people eat a mostly plant-based diet, engage in an active lifestyle, and have a positive mindset. The Two Fit Crazies had a blast with Tricia Silverman! Let’s get back to basics when it comes to nutrition! This episode may just change, or save, your life! 

Be sure to keep your eye out for Tricia’s Book Release in Spring 2019 

Enjoy!
