It’s changed my life this last, this last 13 months has changed my life for myself as a father, as a husband, as a friend. It’s certainly changed my waistline’s sides and the type of jeans that I can wear.
It sounds like it was your mindset that’s really allowing you to fully become yourself, but also it’s that mindset that’s helping you change your health habits.
Oh, that’s beautiful. Like, I talk about this a lot, this idea of leaning into the pain and really the human work that we have to do in order to make a lifestyle change. Like those emotions, those feelings, those wounds of the past, whatever it is, those beliefs and perceptions that we grew up with, all of those, like it’s in our mind.
I remember scarlet and...

Welcome to episode #98 of the Fitlandia Podcast. Today my guest is Frank Gjata from Conscious Ink founded in Bend, Oregon. Today, we are going to talk about why manifesting your dream life by aligning your true self is important for your building a positive mindset.
It’s one of the things I say when we do this practice of reframing negative thoughts into positive is that you don’t have to believe the statement, but imagine what it would feel like the emotions that would come up if you believed it fully and completely.
And so the invitation again is just to allow those feelings to breathe and allow them to go through. Now you’re making a big shift right then and there and it will open up space for the new thought pattern to be put in.
Take three deep breaths and just literally imagine like this elevator coming out of your mind and but down below your throw and literally into other parts of your body and just start to notice what you feel...
Welcome to episode #97 of the Fitlandia Podcast. Today my guests are Erin Moone and Dionne Del Carlo from StarCycle, founded right here in Portland, Oregon. Today, the three of us are going to talk about why taking a break from tech is so important for your mind.
…this sense of urgency that we all have that is really inflated and exaggerated and not real. So it’s giving ourselves permission to say that’s going to wait. We’re not brain surgeons.
I know for myself I will eat quickly and not really taste what I’m eating and just getting it down and onto the next thing, but if I put my phone away, engage in conversation, listen to the laughter, then I’m taking in all those senses and actually tasting my food. It does taste better because I’m paying attention.
So related to the classes we run, our bodies are physically moving quickly and we’re working really hard and our heart rates are up. But because...

If you have been contemplating a switch from carb-loading to fat-fueling, today’s repeat of an interview with guest Leanne Vogel is for you! Join Christa and Leanne as they discuss overcoming fears and getting in touch with your core desired feelings along the way to permanent lifestyle change. They also address important distinctions between healthy and unhealthy approaches to a keto diet.
Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.
Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting...

Today’s guest on the Fitlandia Podcast is AJ Dexter, husband of host Christa King. Join them as they partner up to talk (and laugh!) about the recent half marathon they participated in together.
The Power of Partnership to Thrive
After five years of marriage, AJ and Christa decided to take their fitness to the next level together in 2018.
AJ is a rock climber, so some of his fitness goals centered around that, like climbing a steeper grade. He also set a goal to complete three half-marathons. Also, he had body recomposition goals that would involve weight-training, etc. Christa also has body recomposition goals, focusing on greater lean muscle mass. Reading a book by Timothy Ferriss, “The 4-Hour...
Are you struggling to reboot a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine following the birth of a baby or other major life change? Are you looking for the best online nutrition and fitness programs for postpartum recovery? Are you looking for community connection while you get your pre-pregnancy vitality back?
Today on the Fitlandia Podcast, guest Helene Byrne, prenatal and postpartum exercise specialist, author, and founder of BeFit- Mom™, joins host Christa King of Fitlandia to discuss post-partum ab recovery.
How Did Helen Become a Prenatal and Postpartum Exercise Specialist?
After the birth of her son, Helene Byrne, was dismayed that pregnancy had seemingly erased her prior fitness state, especially her ab tone and stability, in spite of the fact that she had continued to exercise throughout her pregnancy. She also discovered that no one was promoting postpartum exercise correctly! There had to be something beyond crunches for a new mom’s body recovery?! So...
You have the potential for permanent lifestyle change, no matter where you start from! Harness the power of your mind to thrive, in spite of a culture of fitness-shaming.
