    Ep. 14: Habits vs Addictions

    Ep. 14: Habits vs Addictions

    "You gotta grow through what you go through." - Giselle Perata

    We wanted to try something new on this week's episode of the Fire Round and bring in a co-host.  I've received a few requests to have a co-host on my Fire Rounds so you ask and you shall receive! 

    This week I had the honor of having my girlfriend (and quarantine partner), Giselle Perata.  And we got into the topic of habits and addictions.  

    What Giselle researched and shared with us was so valuable!

    Let's be honest...

    We all have habits and addictions.  

    We have some good habits, and some bad habits.  We probably have more bad habits than we'd like to admit.

    Then, we have addictions.  Do we all have addictions?  Do we have good and bad addictions the same way we do our habits?



    We cover that and a few other questions on this Fire Round, like:

    - What is the difference between a Habit and an Addiction?

    - Can we control our habits and addictions?

    - We also share a few easy, quick tips to add good and remove bad habits out of your life, TODAY!

    Ep. 13: Unlock Your Kid's True Sports Potential

    Ep. 13: Unlock Your Kid's True Sports Potential

    Did you know...? 

    1) 20 million youth participate in sports every year? 

    2) 70% of youth will drop out of sports before middle school? 

    3) And, the average family spends $350 per month on youth sports activities? 

    WOW... let that soak in for a second... 

    When I hear those stats the first thing that comes to my mind is, that's A LOT of kids lol, and kids REALLY like to play sports.  They want to be active.   

    Then, when you hear 70% drop out BEFORE middle school!?  When I hear that, it breaks my heart.  That's too young for a child's dreams to get shattered. 

    Parents want nothing more than for their children to become the best version of themselves and have the best experience possible while doing it.  Amiright!? 

    But, for some reason there's a big disconnect here.  If so many of our youth want to play sports, but drop out so young they must not be getting the best experience, the best environment, the best quality of coaching, the best chance of learning possible. 

    Yet, at the same time parents are willing to do whatever it takes to give their children the best chance of all of the above.  So how do we bridge that gap?  

    Maybe a better question, how do we expose parents and coaches to the proper guidance and step-by-step action plans so they can give their children the best chance at unlocking their true sports potential? 

    That my friends, is why I'm so excited to share with you the FitKidApp.  And the beautiful people behind it, my two good friends, Dee and Sangeeta Bhatia. 

    Dee and Sangeeta have been married for 14 years and parents of two, Dee and Sangeeta have always put family first.   They have now started a journey to better the experience of youth sports and fitness for your family.   

    The FitKidApp is a project that brings awareness and education of sports techniques to your home.  

    They want to help you "unlock your kid's true sports potential."

    Ep. 12: Our New Normal | Fire Round

    Ep. 12: Our New Normal | Fire Round

    We, here at Well-Fit are not taking this pandemic lightly and neither should you.  Let’s be honest, we’re going to be at-home for quite some time. There’s never been a better time to prioritize your goals, try new things, get active, unwind, eat well, and have some fun with the people you live with.

    Let’s keep it really simple, it’s pretty binary.  You can either over-analyze what you think is ‘going’ to happen in the future and live in fear.  Analysis by paralysis.  Which ultimately can be our largest obstacle of all.  Especially since the outcome and timeline is completely out of our control.

    Or, you can stop thinking and just go with the flow based on your environment and circumstances.  Play the best hand with the cards you're dealt. Accept, embrace, strategize, create and innovate.  Develop a healthy, structured, well-rounded routine you want to follow to that of which if you follow it you’ll have accomplished what it is you set out to achieve.

    Now, let’s discuss what one person needs to incorporate into their daily at-home schedule in order to achieve the staples to one’s health and fitness.

    Ep. 11: Hungry 4 Success with Jon Combs

    Ep. 11: Hungry 4 Success with Jon Combs

    “If you give up once, it can become a habit.” - Jon Combs



    Being born in Puerto Rico, father going to prison when he was in 3rd grade, mother working multiple jobs, and Jon having to help raise his brother he had to grow up quick.  Jon learned how to figure it out.  As he likes to call it, FITFO.

    He learned to be independent early on, he is self-aware, knows who he is and want he wants out of life.  He also seems to have a clear understanding of his true purpose on this planet.  Which is mentoring and coaching our youth through health, fitness and sports.  Jon has entrepreneurship in his DNA.  And his head is down, he’s working hard and continuing to remain humble.

    Jon is a former multi-sport high-level athlete, collegiate baseball player, even went semi-pro.  Having to decide between continuing his dream to go pro or taking care of his grandma he chose the latter and hung up the cleats to focus on his career.  

    This was when he came to work with me.  He was my top personal trainer/sports performance coach when we had our old gym (Total Performance Fitness Training Center).  I've known Jon since he was a junior in high school.  He always had something special about him.  I knew he was going to go on and accomplish so many amazing things.

    Jon now owns and operates Hungry 4 Success Athletics based out of Tracy, Ca.  Which is a 6,400 square foot gym.  It specializes in the following:



    - Youth performance coaching

    - Youth and adult nutrition and fitness programming, and

    - Mindset coaching on how to become your best self



    Jon came from nothing and is now on the rise to building a fitness empire.  And today, he explains exactly how he got there.
