    16. Does a Reward System Help? with Kevin Driscoll

    16. Does a Reward System Help? with Kevin Driscoll

    Welcome to Simple(ish) Fitness!
    Today we have a special guest we think you all will really enjoy. Kevin Driscoll is joining us from San Diego, California. He is a super fun person and it was our honor to chat with him for this topic today of reward systems in fitness.
    Reward systems are a tool we should all be using to get on track and stay on track with developing healthy habits and meeting our own goals. We will talk for a little while about why we need to use rewards, give some good ideas and examples of reward systems, and help you set up a system that works for you.
    And afterwards we will share what kind of animals we would like to be if we had to switch lives with a member of the animal kingdom.
    You can find Kevin on Instagram at: @kpd.fit

    15. Fitness Myths and Burgers

    15. Fitness Myths and Burgers

    Welcome to Simple(ish) Fitness!

    Brandon and I started this podcast to help listeners connect to fitness a little differently.
    We wanted to make fitness more relatable, break down some barriers that make fitness intimidating, and overall focus on the small things – like what about each topic really matters, or what changes can we make to our lives in small ways that will yield results.
    But we also started it because we want to have fun with it and connect with you!
    We are several months in and we’re ready to introduce a couple new things – or segments you may call them.
    Today we are going to give them a practice run before we start implementing them into episodes regularly. We hope you enjoy them and be sure to let us know what you think!

    12. How Important is Fitness Journaling?

    12. How Important is Fitness Journaling?

    Welcome to Simple(ish) Fitness!


    When we think of a fitness journal often our minds go to a log-book style paper that we mark each time we finish a workout or eat a meal.


    While fitness journaling can look like that, it’s not the only way it can look. We found that it has a lot more overlap with life journaling than we typically think. Today we explore the benefits of journaling, how that can look differently for different people, and how it can fit with different lifestyles and preferences.

    11. Gaining a Fitness Perspective with Allyson Spungin

    11. Gaining a Fitness Perspective with Allyson Spungin

    Welcome to Simple(ish) Fitness!


    To gain perspective means learning how to change the meaning of a circumstance. Gaining a larger and more well rounded perspective in fitness leads to a slightly new meaning of fitness - which, in turn, may change how we feel about it and respond to it too.


    For today’s conversation, Allyson Spungin joins us and brings her extreme knowledge and unique perspective of the fitness world to the show. She will share parts of her own journey as a trainer, how she simplifies fitness to her clients, some tips on nutrition, and how her perspective of fitness has been so impactful!
