Ep 20: Boy meets synergy…so far

Boy meets Synergy...so far

Mr. V is a middle school history teacher who's job description is much more than teaching History.  He teaches his students to ask questions and analyze why things happen rather than just accept them.  This concept he lives by transcends the classroom, but seeps into how he wants to live his life.

Before embarking on his 12-week synergy plan, Mr. V found he would be fatigued with simple daily activities such as going up 6 flights of stairs to his apartment, or playing  basketball, soccer, and football with his students. Check out the latest episode with Mr. V from Boys Meet Podcast and see how his first 4 weeks of his synergy plan has progressed his concept of analyzing rather than acceptance to achieve greater energy levels!

Ep 19: Small wins = Big wins

Appreciate the small wins

When we solely pay attention to physical progress, it's easy to revert back to old/unhealthy habits if changes don't happen rapidly. What if we paid attention to other aspects of progress in our fitness?  Would that feed into our confidence to perpetuate healthy habits?

Tune in today to hear Masters of Occupational Therapy Student Michelle, talk about how she manages combating unhealthy choices.

Ep 18: How environment influences your lifestyle

"Birds of a feather, flock together."

Who is in your flock?

Sometimes we create unhealthy habits based on our social environment. What is popular or the status quo can pressure us to make unhealthy decisions such as social drinking, partying, and eating out.However, there are circumstances that we have no control of such as how we grow up or what our social class is, and how it influences our habits. 

Should we let what happens in the past influence our future?

Today I have Cognitive Neuroscientist, Ekarin Pongpipat @epongpipat, and Respiratory Therapist and former D1 soccer athlete, Dan Yoon @buttcheeksdan, to talk about how environments shape their perspective on fitness.  Tune in to find out what we surround ourselves with and how we educate ourselves to create healthy habits.

Ep 17: Taking 1 step back to take 2 steps forward

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!
