PODCAST EPISODE 161: The Importance of Resistance Training for Women Over 50 with Mike Pullano

aging menopause podcast Nov 17, 2021
 

According to Mike Pullano, our podcast guest today, resistance training might be an aging girl’s best friend. The Chief Product Officer at ARX (Adaptive Resistance Exercise) recommends resistance training as a key part of aging gracefully—and for good reasons. Mikes insists that resistance training is a fundamental part of health. It is arguably the first line of defense against muscle loss. Strength training also builds resilience, reduces your physical vulnerability to injury, helps ease the management of chronic conditions, boosts your cognitive health, and even impacts gene expression to reverse the progression of aging. 

 

A Few Takeaways from Our Interview: 

This discussion covers a wide range of topics surrounding the use of machine-driven resistance to create an adaptive resistance training program to help optimize the physical and mental benefits of...

PODCAST EPISODE 160. Emotional Eating During the Holidays: What You Need to Know with Cassie Christopher

nutrition podcast Nov 15, 2021
 

I thought this would be a helpful topic to cover as we head into the holiday season. Somehow, as a society, we've worked ourselves into a place where there can be a lot of shame and guilt around holiday eating. Magazines and fitness experts will blow up your social media feeds the next two months, with all kinds of "rules" around eating... how to plan for that stuffing or pumpkin pie, how to starve yourself all day so you can go to that work cocktail party, how many burpees you need to do to "work off" the holiday cookies you ate in the breakroom. 

It's no wonder we have so much confusion over nutrition, diet, exercise... as well as a stigma around larger bodies and a skewed idea of what beautiful means.

Today's guest wants you to know that all the emotions and confusion you feel around eating are not your fault. We've been fed so much garbage about what to think and believe, it's hard to sort through it all.

Cassie Christopher is going to set you straight, and hopefully,...

In the introduction to her book, "Love Thirst: a Spiritual Journey from Broken to Beautiful,"  Marie says, "My story is not about anything extraordinary other than the fact that from the time I was young, I needed a lot of love and kept looking for it in the craziest places. I was like everyone, desiring to be loved. So I looked for a lot of it, plain and simple."

Marie is a hairstylist, mother, grandmother, author, and speaker who hopes to encourage others with a longing to heal their own broken, hole-riddled hearts.

PODCAST EPISODE 153: Help Your Teen Gain Clarity, Confidence, and Control with Greg and Beth Langston

college podcast purpose Sep 09, 2021
 

Who are you? What makes you tick? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are your core values, and how do they impact your everyday life? Self-discovery is an essential component of personal growth.

Discovering your potential and purpose in life is a key element to thriving, rather than surviving—especially for students transitioning from high school to college, which is a career- and life-defining stage in their lives. This is something that today’s guests, Greg and Beth Langston, discovered the hard way while preparing their kids for college application in a system that paid little attention to the crucial role of self-discovery.

Drawing on their professional and personal experiences, Greg and Beth Langston created the College Flight Plan Self-Discovery Course. According to their website, the program “gives your students everything they need to determine a career course as they confidently apply their unique strengths, values, purpose and goals to their...
