The Sound of Synergy Podcast

Welcome to the Sound of Synergy Podcast where we talk about the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of fitness to build a healthy lifestyle. || Brandon B., PT, DPT, CSCS

What happens when we build a house on a weak foundation? 

In our fitness journey, often times we like to "jump all in" to a certain program in hopes of expediating results without proper examination where we are mentally, emotionally, and physically. While it is appropriate to push yourself to get results, sometimes we need to take a step back to take 2 steps forward. 

On today's episode I have Registered Nurse and Financial Adviser, Jerwyn Tiu, talk about his experiences with making the mindful decision to "sharpen his axe before chopping down the tree." Tune in to find out how he did it!

Our mind is a mirror to the body. And our body reflects our mind.

Adding physical strength can lead to mental toughness... but what happens when you experience moments of weakness, does that lead to mental degradation? Not necessarily. If we can be fully aware of these moments of weakness then we can find strength in it.

Today I have chemical engineer, James Guinto, talk about his journey through fitness. We talk about his vulnerability of being "overweight" basketball player, being injured and how it correlates to your mental fervor, and finding the strength in vulnerability.

Embarking on a fitness journey can be daunting.  Finding a way to incorporate friends, family, or a significant other can help you create sustainability. Especially if you can use each other's strengths to benefit the other.  Tune in to today's episode where I have occupational therapy student Michelle talk about falling off the "fitness horse", meal tips for when you are craving a Big Mac, and preparing for her wedding!

Being healthy comes in many different shapes and forms.

Are you healthy because you are flexible from yoga? Are you healthy because you have a six pack from bodybuilding? Are you healthy because you have low cholesterol from eating a lot of leafy greens? Are you healthy because you can run 10 miles?

No matter how health has manifested itself, I have seen these kinds of people possess mental, physical, and emotional strength. Making fitness a part of your life may be the missing piece to creating life long happiness and success.

Regardless of your choice of exercise or diet methodology maintaining sustainability of a healthy lifestyle emanates from the skills and habits you create.

Check out my latest podcast episode with digital marketing manager of Questnutrition, Clark Pagaduan. We go through his 80 lb-loss transformation journey through different exercise methodologies like Insanity, Crossfit, Bodybuilding, and Powerlifting.  Tune in to hear about maintaining sustainability in his fitness journey.

Tune in to today to hear my colleagues Tony Ahn, PT, DPT, CSCS and Adam Seson, PT, DPT, CSCS talk about building our patients'/clients' fitness autonomy.
