My name is Phil Hueston, and I am not your average pretty trainer. I've spent 20 years in the fitness profession and made enough mistakes to know I don't know squat.

After working with high-level athletes, busy moms and dads, kids of all ages and even Autistic and special needs clients, I've learned that it's not all about sets, reps and meal prep.

I explore all 4 Pillars of Fitness (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) with my clients, and I'll do the same right here. Join me for a sometimes irreverent journey through the "fit-mosphere!" Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/four-pillar-fitness/support

    On Solitude and the Opinions of Others

    On Solitude and the Opinions of Others

    Do you spend time in solitude?

    I don't mean by yourself, scrolling through your social media feeds looking at what all your "friends" are doing.

    Real solitude.

    Disconnected from everything but the sound of your own thoughts.

    Making your way through days without the background noise of social media, news and nonsense.

    You might be surprised what you learn about yourself when your internal voice becomes the one you hear the loudest.

    On today's episode, I'm sharing some of what I discovered when I took off, set up camp and shut out the rest of the world.

    As always, I hope what I've learned will help you become better in all four pillars of your fitness and health.

    Give it a listen and don't shy about sharing your thoughts!

    Important Things To Know About COVID-19

    Important Things To Know About COVID-19

    If you listen to the news, you'd think the COVID-19 coronavirus was the end of the world.

    But the truth is that we've learned an awful lot in the 7 or so months since this novel coronavirus started to spread.

    In today's episode, we're looking at the work of one group of really smart people.

    At the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore, much has been discovered about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it, SARS-CoV-2.

    We're learning about how it enters the body, takes over cells and even the unusual immune system responses to COVID-19.

    Give it a listen and check out some of what we've learned.

    Here are the links to the articles mentioned in the show.

    Help Your Kids Cope With The COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

    Help Your Kids Cope With The COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

    The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic seems like the only thing on TV, radio, streaming services, news media and just about anywhere else.

    Infection counts, death tolls, arguments between politicians and the breathless pandering of the hair hat idiots in the media are overwhelming to the average adult.

    Can you imagine what all that can do to your kids?

    Without your life experience and perspective, they can easily become terrified.

    This pandemic and the free fall of fear being created around it can leave long-lasting emotional and psychological scars on your kids.

    But there are things you can do to make the situation better for your kids.

    Today's episode is all about some of those things.

    Join me as I share some strategies and tactics for helping your kids come out of this mess healthier and happier.

    Coach Feedback Is Brain Food For Athletes

    Coach Feedback Is Brain Food For Athletes

    Feedback is important to the training process.

    Whether your athlete is learning a new lift, honing speed technique or developing a new sport skill, feedback can improve the process.

    It can sometimes mean the difference between failing and succeeding.

    But what if feedback is even more important than that?

    What if feedback, done well and done right, can actually improve an athlete's brain?

    Join me for a look at how coaching feedback impacts the developing brains of young athletes.

    We'll look at how emotion, perception and experience influence the "wiring" of an athletes' brain.

    I'll also offer some practical ideas for improving your feedback and communication as a coach, fitness pro or even a parent.

    Youth Sports and Kids Emotional Health: A Study Review

    Youth Sports and Kids Emotional Health: A Study Review

    Youth sports, especially in the US, has taken a lot of criticism lately.

    Not so much for the actual playing of the sports themselves. The criticism usually involves the behaviors, attitudes and actions of the adults involved.

    Generally, it's always been thought that playing sports is good for kids.

    Most people who've played youth sports would likely agree.

    In today's episode, I review a study out of Montreal that links playing youth sports between 6 and 10 with better emotional health outcomes at age 12 and beyond.

    Is this true? Can they back up their claims?

    Listen in and get the low-down!

    Website version is here: Youth Sports Participation Linked to Reduced Risk of Emotional Difficulties
