Fitness For Freedom Tips

Fitness For Freedom Tips is a new type of fitness and health show. We deliver fitness tips that you can apply to your life right away in 10 minutes or less. Lets face it you’re busy and life pulls you in all directions. You want to be healthier, but living a healthier lifestyle is hard. It requires you to change and there is a lot of misinformation out there. We work hard to syphon through it to give you the most sound advice possible and set you up for the greatest chance of success. Jonathan Chant has been working with people to live healthier lives for 10 years now and he’s seen it all. That’s why he founded Fitness For Freedom, your complete online fitness training and lifestyle design community. He pulls out all the stops to help you make the changes yourself. No transformation challenges, no extreme changes just solid strategies to help you make changes that will stick for the rest of your life. Change is constant and you’re going to have lots of questions as you go along that’s why we keep our episodes short so they don’t ‘eat in’ to your already ‘stretched’ lives (puns intended). We try to have some fun with it too! Exercise doesn’t have to be boring? So what are you waiting for? If you’re still reading this you’re definitely interested in the show, so give it a listen.

Every once in a while a video will pop up in one of my social media feeds that says you shouldn’t be sore after a workout and that if you are, you’re doing too much. Well I’m going to challenge that notion today, because you do have to be sore at least sometimes otherwise you’re not pushing your muscles hard enough that they need to adapt. I know you can’t wait to hear about all the reason you should be sore so let’s get to it.

As most of you know I'm big on controlling your environment and focussing on behaviours to make changes, but sometimes these changes have limitations, sure you can set your alarm 30 minutes earlier, of course you can pack your gym bag the night before so it's ready to grab on your way out the door and yes pre-planning your meals and preparing them as much as possible on the weekend so they’re ready to go through the week will be crucial in determining whether or not you can be successful in achieving the outcomes you want. But sometimes that's just not enough.

You can't argue with the importance of sleep, but I think most people still underestimate how important it really is or can't tangibly say what’s so good about it even though everyone knows that amazing feeling of waking up after a phenomenal night’s sleep.  Today we have Blaine’s story, of course that’s not his real name, but he is a real person and there are aspects to his story that everyone can relate to and we’re going to especially zoom in on how sleep has effected him in a very tangible way, so here we go.

On Wednesday our last rapid fire question was a bit of a doozie and one that I feel warrants more of an in-depth look, it’s not a fitness question per say, it’s a human interaction question that basically boils down to this, when you make changes in your life you become a different person and when your friends and family see this there are a few different responses they could have:

 

  1. Being legitimately concerned that what you’re doing may be damaging to yourself, think eating disorders and exercise addiction
  2. Pretending to be concerned, but actually trying to bring you down, because they’re not willing to grow or change,  think friends that sabotage or enable negative behaviours
  3. Friends that want to change and grow with you and then do   


We’re going to navigate through these things together to try and figure it all out. How to spot these different circumstances and how you can approach each one of these situations to get the most positive outcome possible.  I  personally think this is one of the top 3 most important episode’s we've done because it affects everyone on some level.

For those of you that don’t know Penn Jillette is a magician and entertainer. He’s the vocal and boisterous half of the Penn and Teller duo and if you’ve ever seen him perform you know one thing for sure. He speaks his mind and is skeptical of everything. Over the course of the last couple of years he’s lost over 100lbs. On the surface he did it in a way I don’t typically advocate, but there are definitely some subtleties to the process that I do, which is what we’re covering today so don’t go anywhere.
