Elevating the individual’s health consciousness . With coaches Julia Balit and Nathan Zentner.

Sean Chris Lewis

During these times of sequestration, many of us have found ourselves in contemplation about our health, fitness, and what we would like to change in our lives. With a deep sense that the world is changing and certainly our hopes that the world will in fact change, we don’t want to miss this opportunity to challenge ourselves to change with it.  This is our 3rd part of our conversation with coaches Julia Balit and Nathan Zentner. We go deep in this discussion and explore the very controversial questions of the individual taking accountability for their personal well being.  In this episode we discuss:  let’s take action on our health today and not wait for something to go wrong before we start.  When we wait to make changes in our health practices, we have to take more drastic measures to improve our wellbeing.  Being fit and healthy takes effort and energy.  We acknowledge that there are some people living in scarcity and practicing health and fitness is almost impossible for them due to lack of resources.  We look at reasons people claim as to why they don’t exercise.  Why we should not be so quick to claim to be a specific body type. Adhering to principals of fitness will approximate everyone to a fitter body.  We acknowledge that being underweight and overweight are equally unhealthy.  Body shaming should never be a reason to have someone exercise.  The importance of mentally laying the foundation for better health. Start with the mind and the fitness will follow.  Creating clear, attainable, but challenging goals.  We also need a very big goal that challenges our behaviour over the long term.  You can connect with Julia on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juliabalit/ You can connect with Nathan on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zentnernathan/

Sean Chris Lewis

Every individual and industry is at a fork in the road. Our lives have been disrupted with very little notice. These are the covid19 lockdown podcast editions. These are the stories of people, sharing their experience & vision of how we can emerge better.  This is part 2 of our discussion with fitness coaches, Julia Balit and Nathan Zentner.  In this episode we discuss:  This fit/sick curve. This is a theory that proposes that, our fitness will inevitably help us to shorten sickness times and withstand illness better than those who are not fit.  The importance of maximizing our fitness in current times.  When we don’t know where to start in our health journey, the best thing to do is to start taking control of the things in our life that we have some control over.  How to keep our mindset focused on goal attainment.  Action is what builds our motivation. We need to get into action to get motivated.  Will power and how to harness it to get into action.  To just get moving and the endorphins kick in quickly to keep us moving.  Motivation through accountability partners.  Having a huge goal is the best way to keep us focused on success.  Work hard, be patient, and consistency will come.  To have the taste of a win is critical to elevating our belief that we are capable of winning.  The importance of personal development.  You can connect with Nathan on instagram https://www.instagram.com/zentnernathan/ You can connect with Julia on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juliabalit/

Sean Chris Lewis

Every individual and industry is at a fork in the road. Our lives have been disrupted with very little notice. These are the covid19 lockdown podcast editions. These are the stories of people, sharing their experience & vision of how we can emerge better.  Personal trainers and the fitness industry at large have all been disrupted due to the covid19 pandemic. Professional and personal reinvention is without a doubt one of our present challenges.  This is part one of our discussion with Strength and fitness coaches, Julia Balit and Nathan Zentner.  In this episode we discuss:  Our personal discoveries we have made about ourselves.  Our initial reaction to the disruption in the fitness industry.  Julia and Nathan share how they  launched their online personal training work.  How they used their time to take on projects that they previously kept putting aside.  Self reinvention is not very obvious and comes with its own frustrations.  The worry of missing out on opportunity as a source of stress.  Nathan shares his moment of frustration and discouragement, and his decision to get back on track with his nutrition and mindset.  Emotional eating is something we all have to deal with. Our discipline will inevitably determine our health outcomes.  You can connect with Julia on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juliabalit/ You can connect with Nathan on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zentnernathan/

Why We May Be Failing To Attain Our Goals. A mashup episode with coaches Julia Balit, Dean Hollingworth, Nathan Zentner, and Natalia Feldman.

Sean Chris Lewis

There are statistics that indicate that only 8% of people will succeed with their New Years resolutions. Whether this leads some to believe that making resolutions is a waste of time, I am personally more concerned with helping those who have fallen, to get back up and get back on track.  No one can deny that change is difficult and the frustrations that we encounter along the way can easily nudge us back into our old habits. My goal with forked podcast is to share the stories of everyday people and how they overcome their personal challenges. My hope is that listeners may find a story that inspires them and enables them to stay the course in discovering their personal potential.  In this weeks episode, I’ve included excerpts of recent past episodes, highlighting some solutions to the most common reasons we fall short of goals and resolutions.  In this episode we discuss: That nagging feeling that we are behind and too late in the game to realize our goals.  Don’t wait for things to be perfect to go out and give it your best shot.  Being true with ourselves and admitting if we just aren’t willing to give certain things up in order to reach our new goals. Focusing on todays wins and being committed in the present.  Depression as a major cause to break away from our goals.  What can we do to ease the destructive force of depression. When we look back at the startup of successful people, we see that it took time to find success. Patience with determination and commitment will bring its rewards.
