Welp, that's Season 1! We had a blast, and if you listened to the previous episodes, you know what we mean. In this wrap up, we discuss each episode, what we enjoyed about the guests, and the workouts we took. Shout out to all that have listened, and to those who have helped make this podcast great! Look out for Season 2 coming in the next few months!
If you've listened to past podcasts, Anna had asked us multiple times to come to her pole dance class, and finally we were able to sync up schedules and go. Talk about getting out of your comfort zone and trying something new! Hosted at Sweat716, there were many poles to choose from and we went right front and center. Anna started us off with some very basic moves, and we progressed from there. It was not easy, and that was what was fun about it. Would we do it again? You'll have to listen to find out. Give this one a listen to hear our thoughts about the pole dance class and more, and thank you to Anna for coming on for a third time!
Vestibular... That's one term among many others that we learned from the amazing Dr. Kelsey Fink of Muscle Up Wellness & Recovery, as we interviewed her a second time, following an assessment she did on Dan right before recording. She also gave us a taste of Integrated Kinetic Neurology, and showed us what happens when you utilize cupping therapy and Graston techniques for recovery. We were glad to have Dr. Fink back on to give Dan some pain relief, and to give you listeners some food for thought about your potential strengthening and recovery efforts. Following his evaluation and treatment Dan's neck has been pain (and cracking) free for 3 days and counting! Give this podcast a listen and if you want to optimize your function, contact Dr. Fink today! Be sure to also follow her on Facebook & Instagram. Dr. Fink primarily practices out of Crossfit Ambition and Perform Athletix, each in Rochester NY. She also can do virtual sessions if you live in New York or West Virginia.
We welcomed Dan Dominguez on to share his expertise in acupuncture as it relates to fitness, but we received so much more. Quite the story, and an amazing journey for Dan Dominguez as he has reached an amazing career milestone, all stemming from a sports tragedy. He's now soon to be opening up his own clinic downtown, Buffalo Orthopedic + Sports Acupuncture aka BOSA 716, and becoming the Buffalo Bills Team Acupuncturist. Find the time to listen to this podcast, as you'll really enjoy the ride, hearing how passionate and dedicated Dan is to his acupuncture craft, and how blessed he feels to be where he is today. He was a great guest and we think you'll feel the same!
We couldn't live with ourselves if we just interviewed to Dr. Jacob and Dr. Monica Harden once. They have so much more information about fitness, and ways to improve your health that they needed to share! In this episode, we catch up with both good doctors; their new clinic opening this month, parenting a toddler while still working on their own fitness, more about RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion), the current deadlift controversy and more. There is a lot to learn and the docs were happy to explain, so take a listen as we are sure there is something for everyone in this podcast.

As we've discussed in some of the other episodes, sometimes fitness isn't all about the physical. There's a good portion of mental to figuring out what can motivate you at the gym. Meet Sarah Bertollini, founder and President of TYPEd Group, and a certified practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, DISC, and other models of social psychology coaching. She recently came on to discuss personality differences and how discovering your "wiring" can help you discover what motivates you at the gym. It could be variety, could be structured programs, it could be knowing what you're doing or finding out on the fly... or shades of grey in between. Take a listen and you might learn something about yourself to help you along your fitness journey, and set or achieve the goals you are after.

Everybody goes through rough times in life. Whether it be stress from your job, family issues, or how you feel about your physical appearance, sometimes you need to find a way to release that stress. After having them on separately, and enjoying their talks, we invited Anna Alvarado and Jordan Marwin back on to talk to us together and have them share their insight into physical fitness as it relates to body and mind. As we discuss, fitness can be just as beneficial for your physical health and almost more important in your mental health and wellbeing.  Welcome Anna and Jordan back, and listen as the couple discuss their struggles, perseverance, and how as a fit couple they overcome their differences in unique ways.
The infamous New York Yankee legend, Yogi Berra once was quoted as saying "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical." Now we might not be math majors, but we know he was 100% right in his assessment. Which goes into why fitness isn't always about the physical, there's a mental aspect to it as well. Duke University Doctorate of Physical Therapy Student, Josh Allen, sat down with us to talk about his current studies, what he's seen as a PTA, Kinesiophobia or the "excessive, irrational and debilitating fear of physical movement and activity resulting from a feeling of vulnerability to painful injury or reinjury", and more. If you've suffered a big injury or maybe just aren't feeling the same after a small one you sustained while being active, this podcast is for you. Take a listen!
