Be Relentless Podcast Episode 36 – Building Healthy Eating Habits for Busy People

learn to eat better bangor maineNew podcast is up!

Today I’m going to tackle eating to support your body, WHILE still dealing with your busy schedule.  Beyond that, I’m going to go into not just a few tips and tricks (although they’re in there), but also how to build eating better into a HABIT, so it becomes automatic and sticks with you.

Look, we’re all busy.

Between work, family, travel, hitting the gym, and every other activity that life throws at us, you can find yourself eating on the run a lot. Sure, it’d be great if every meal was home-cooked, and you were able to prep everything… but that probably doesn’t happen.

So in this podcast I’m going to break down some tips on eating on the run AND how to make that actually a habit that sticks.

I’ll go over:

Be Relentless Podcast – Monday Quick Hit 22 – PCT vs RSF Thought, Which One Governs Your Life?

be relentless podcast quick hit 22The Be Relentless Podcast is back!  I’m excited to get back behind the mic and start it up again.  As you may see, I’ve decided to mix everything onto a single website, the primary Relentless Strength Training site.  If you’d like to go back and listen to old episodes of the podcast (which I’d appreciate) then you can get them on iTunes OR on the original Be Relentless Podcast website, which isn’t going anywhere.

On to today’s episode!  (and yes, I know this is a Monday podcast coming out on a Tuesday, but technical issues…)

Problem-Centered Thought or Relentless Solution Focus…

Which one governs your life?

If you’re like most people, that’s Problem-Centered Thought (PCT). Dr. Jason Selk, author of “Exective Toughness”, instead would have you focus on a Relentless Solution Focus (RSF).

At Relentless, and not just because of the name, we have made this a cornerstone of our Relentless Mindset program. If you’re looking to start turning the ship around, even if it’s inch-by-inch, then you need to be focused on your RSF.

Relentless Family Spotlight – Keith Weiland

relentless strength training personal training bangor maineThe hard part about having such a loyal and long-lasting gym family is that eventually life changes and people move.  So sometimes you lose great members because of a job change, relocation, etc.

Unfortunately, that recently happened with Keith.  He joined up with us several months ago and immediately brought a fire and personality to the gym like no other.  I’ve often said that the best part about Relentless is the soul of the community, and nobody latched right on to that like Keith.

We’re sorry to see him go, but wish him well on his new ventures!

Name:
Keith Wieland

How would you describe your situation before joining, and what did you want to change?
Getting older and realizing I was deconditioned. Desire to feel better, move better and improve my psyche.

What were you most apprehensive about?
My apprehension was mostly fear of failure.

What is one of the first things you noticed after starting?
That the staff were all very helpful and engaged even during the busiest times. Friendly banter was a great motivator for me personally. The “ribbing” was essential to my progression, Isaac, Rob and Patrick are masters of this art form.

bangor maine personal trainerWould you take a second to describe how you are now and what’s changed?
My motivation to stay fit has changed for life I believe. When I reflect on where I was when I started compared to now it’s surreal. The few days before I left town I actually had the gumption to challenge the 405 DL club. Though I didn’t get there I was glad to have even considered the challenge.

What would you say to anyone who was thinking of joining?
Just get after it and join Relentless!! You won’t regret it. I’ve been going since December and wish Relentless could relocate with me. I appreciate the men and women of Relentless and the men and women that put the effort in every day. I’m grateful for my time with Isaac and the crew! Thanks for crossing paths with me. Peace.

What It Means To Live The Relentless Lifestyle

relentless strength trainingOne of the most important things we try to impress upon people when they join Relentless Strength Training is that you’re not joining “a gym”.

Sure, we are a gym/exercise facility/personal training studio/athlete development center/whatever you want to label us as.  We actually prefer “Transformation Center”.

The reason we call ourselves a Transformation Center is because we aren’t just a place where you come in, have some great workouts, throw up a peace sign, and get a fist bump on your way out the door.

Instead, we are here to change you and help you become who you want to be (or more accurately to help you enhance and express who you probably already are) and take it to the next level.

We will help you learn and live your best self.  That’s what we mean by The Relentless Lifestyle.
