“You can’t change anything on the outside until you change the inside.” 

“Run at the fear! Attack it!”  -Todd Durkin   

In Episode 88, 13-years after Christine first moved to the Jersey shore and heard of this living legend, the Two Fit Crazies got fired up talking with a true “fire-breathing dragon” by the name of TODD DURKIN. Todd, a native to the Jersey shore, opens up about overcoming incredible adversity through his ability to run at fear, remain purpose-driven, and view his experiences as part of his necessary journey to find his purpose. In this incredibly moving episode, Todd explains how his obedience and drive propelled him from an under-privileged boy in Brick, New Jersey to one of the top 100 greatest health and fitness influencers of all time! Todd discusses the importance of “filling up your well” and taking care of yourself on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. This, Todd proclaims, is one of his keys to success and remaining grounded.

Todd also talks about what it is like to train top NFL and MLB players as well as the people he looks to for strength and guidance. From training pro-athletes, giving keynote speeches, writing books, recording live social media content, and inspiring the world, Todd Durkin is a truly amazing human being. This episode will inspire you to “RUN AT YOUR FEAR!”

Episode 87 - Brittany Citron - PROnatal Fitness, Founder 

 “Inspired by Love, Informed by Science” ™   

“Empowering women to train better for an event of a lifetime …. a major athletic event, motherhood.”  -Brittany Citron   

In Episode 87, the Two Fit Crazies had a blast learning all about PROnatal Fitness with founder, Brittany Citron! After years of working in the corporate world, Brittany’s unyielding passion for fitness and health eventually lead her to “challenge the norm” when it comes to pre and post-natal fitness. With two kids of her own, Brittany saw a gap in the medical and fitness industry with regards to exercising both before and after delivery. Brittany explains why both doctors and fitness professionals alike tend to give misinformation, or no information at all, to pregnant women about the importance of exercise.  Brittany created PROnatal Fitness to bridge this gap. If you are a personal or group fitness trainer, or simply want to learn more about the do’s and don’ts of pre and post-natal exercise, this episode is for YOU! Let’s all learn LIIT!  ….

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!

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!

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
