Ep. 70 - Matt Chenard: Ice Baths and Setting Goals Kanna Fitness Radio

    • Health & Fitness

Ever thought of plunging into an icy bath as a way to build mental resilience? Seems daunting, right? Our guest, Matt Chenard, a gym owner from Camrose, Alberta, tells us about his fascinating journey of managing his autoimmune conditions through cold water exposure. Matt's viral ice bath experiences on social media not only garnered millions of views but also opened up a dialogue about using these seemingly intimidating tasks as a tool for mental strength and resilience.

Matt, Nick, and Chris also discuss the importance of setting achievable wellness goals. We challenge the notion of perfect performance and instead, encourage aiming for an 80% success rate. Discover with us the importance of finding a work capacity that is uniquely yours, acknowledging that the routines that work for one may not always work for others.

Wrapping up, we delve into the profundity of finding meaning in exercise and aging. Matt shares a heart-wrenching story of a gym member who finds inspiration in his mother's battle with Alzheimer's, reminding all of us to appreciate the time we have. We talk about the significance of action, and again, setting realistic health and wellness goals. Join us for this enlightening conversation as we explore the potential of cold water exposure and the art of setting achievable health and wellness goals.
