    “I really just want to empower women. I think that a lot of women have this mindset that everyone is each others competition, and I’m a very big proponent that there is enough room for all of us.”

    “At the end of the day, health and nutrition is a science...there needs to be a level of empowering people to question what their doctors are saying to them and being their own health advocate, but also making sure that you’re using the right information.”
    “Time and energy are the two most valuable commodities in life...The same way that you budget out money, you have to learn to budget out your time and your energy.”

    Anything Boys Can Do, Girls Can Do Better with Carmen Bott

    Anything Boys Can Do, Girls Can Do Better with Carmen Bott

    “My dad got me a t-shirt that said ‘Anything boys can do I can do better.’  I can remember being this little tom-boy going out on my bmx bike, but with my purse.”
    “I had a lot of good teachers and coaches very young that would bust my chops on a constant basis…I’ve always been interested in any profession where you are constantly striving to improve performance and I landed here.”
    “Be "Evidence Informed"… We can’t be evidence based because sometimes we don’t really know if there is evidence to prove that what we are doing is working, but we’re informed because we test and piece the things together…If someone is losing body fat, whatever you are doing as an intervention is science.”
    “You need to keep your message to the universe very clear.”

    Rhonda Catt- Living More and Loving Harder in the Face of Death

    “After my husband died, I’m trying to reach out to those individuals who don’t think about heart disease or that chance of having a heart attack.”

    “People need to understand that the signs and symptoms (for heart disease) vary drastically, not only between men and women, but people in general.”
    “I would tell myself to love harder…we get so wrapped up in everything going on with the day to day we just thought that was normal…You need to put each other first, make time for each other."

    Maria Mountain- Trading the Dolls for Dumbbells and Flying Pucks- 057

    "I wasn't interested in playing with dolls. I would practice for hours throwing the football, dribbling the basketball and puck handling.  I knew I had to be good if the boys were going to let me play."
    "My treat was the cement filled weights."
    “I’m just trying to be a positive role model for the athletes at Revolution and the goalies that we train online. Give them the tools to be an amazing athletes but at the same time show them how to be a quality human beings.”
    “That’s the biggest thing I see missing [with female athletes]…they’re not doing pull ups because they haven’t been trained to be strong.”

    Jason Ferruggia- Doing the Superfly, Action Figures, Stand Up Comedy & Throwing Out 80% of What You Do- 056

    “I didn’t make these big changes until I was in my late 30’s… It’s not too late to change and you can become that person you want to be.”
    “Figure out what makes your happy and design your business around that… I don’t think anyone’s goal and dream is to work 18 hours a day and be super stressed out all the time, but that’s how most people exist.”
    “80% of your results are going to come from 20% of your efforts, so you can stop doing 80% of your stuff.”

    Dana Santas- A Rough Start, The Wrong Path and Turning It Around- 055

    “It can become dangerous when certain fitness professionals who are down only one “rabbit hole” become so defensive about that and are not open to anything else.”
    “You have no idea how much 30 seconds of showing genuine interest, especially in a child, what that might do. That might change their whole life.”
    “(When it comes to reaching people) It’s more about listening and responding thoughtfully as opposed to telling them what you think they want to hear.”

    The Stop and Give Me 20 Podcast features 20 minute interviews with some of the World's Top Fitness Professionals.  Each show will start with their story of what led them into a fitness lifestyle; the spark that fueled their passion to help change lives through their fitness.
    It moves into the "Superhero Section", where the conversation moves into 1) Who their biggest influences were growing up and who their real life Superhero was,  2) Who their Superhero is now- who in the world they look up to and who they are trying to emulate, and 3) Who they want to be Superheros to with their message.
    We might discuss their opinions on what is happening in the fitness industry, good and bad, and where they might think it’s going.  Sometimes we find out some of the books they are reading and seminars they are attending and what their takeaways are.
    At some point in the show we always do the "Stop & Give Me 5" segment, and that’s basically 5 rapid fire questions (not always rapid fire answers).  It’s a fun segment that we make personal to them to try to get an inside look about some of the things that they are interested in.
    We finish each show with a "Letter to Your Younger Self", where guests are asked to give their younger self advice.

Great podcast

Great podcast of Coach Kav. I really like how he talked about looking up to someone that has no arms and legs that was really interesting to me because when you are around people like that you do feel no pain, and it shows how blessed you are.

Listened to him interview coach Kav and he had amazing questions for his development, views and beliefs on life. It was very interesting to hear more about coach Kav and this podcast really dives deep into certain topics.
