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!

“Teaching people to achieve their BEST body   without giving up any of the foods they love.”   -Danielle Greene 

In Episode 85, the Two Fit Crazies loved their in-studio interview with the fantastic and fabulous, Danielle Greene. Danielle is yet another example of how health and fitness changes lives. As a self-proclaimed “lazy” teenager who enjoyed making less than desirable choices, Danielle speaks of her first experiences in cosmetology school where she fell in love with making people feel better about themselves. Soon after, Danielle tells of being drawn into the world of fitness and later going on to earn her personal training and CrossFit™ certification and opening her very own Crossfit ™ Affiliated gym with her father. After a successful run as business owner/entrepreneur, Danielle transitioned into the online nutrition and fitness coaching business where her focus is on “flexible nutrition!” In this world of “fad diets,” Danielle now prides herself on educating others on macro-nutrients, caloric needs, and fitness! We talk everything from Crossfit ™, to nutrition, to eye lashes!

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

Episode 79: Tricia Silverman RD, LDN, MBA, Wellness Educator, Nutrition Speaker

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!

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!
