    Friday Reflex 123: I can finally workout again!

    Friday Reflex 123: I can finally workout again!

    This week's topic: My shutdown period after my hernia surgery is over, and I'm ready to ease back into training. Today, I talk about what the last two weeks has been like, what my training will look like moving forward, and what the future looks like for me personally.
    The Friday Reflex is a roughly 10- to 15-minute episode each Friday of my thoughts on a particular idea or issue that's been on my mind lately. It's short but — I hope — powerful.

    Ep 161: How little decisions each day helped PGA pro golfer Scott Stallings transform his health and fitness

    Ep 161: How little decisions each day helped PGA pro golfer Scott Stallings transform his health and fitness

    Three-time PGA tour winner Scott Stallings joins the show this week to give the backstory of how he went from being 50-plus pounds overweight and in poor health to being one of professional golf's fittest athletes.
    Everything changed for Scott several years ago when a routine doctor's visit snapped him into the reality of his health situation.
    From there, Scott set about making little changes each day to bring about a radical transformation that has not only positively affected his health, but also his career as a pro athlete and his family life.
    We also discuss what life during coronavirus has been like for professional athletes at a time — as of the recording of this interview — when most sports are shut down. Don't miss this episode!

    Ep 159: Kickstarting the father-daughter relationship through technology, with Jaime Hansen of Alley-Oop

    Ep 159: Kickstarting the father-daughter relationship through technology, with Jaime Hansen of Alley-Oop

    This week I am pleased to welcome the first female guest of the Fit Dad Fitness Podcast, Jaime Hansen.
    Jaime has launched a really awesome way for fathers to connect with and be involved with their daughters through her company, Alley-Oop. Jaime's app provides dads ideas for challenges, games, and activities that they can do with their daughters to be involved and present in their lives.
    Jaime's intent with Alley-Oop is to get dads to realize the major effect their presence has on their daughters livelihood and well-being far into the future, and I am 100-percent in favor of it.
    Check out Jaime's work with Alley-Oop at https://alleyoopduos.com/.
