Christa’s bringing you a sneak peak of her new book coming out, “Strategic Vitality: 11 Small Steps to a Big Transformation” as she goes through the 11 steps and reads excerpts from the book.
Does the idea of getting healthy seem overwhelming? Are you filled with a sense of deprivation or even fear about creating a change in your health habits? You’re not alone. I’ve been there before and I’m going to help you move forward.
It is possible to regain your health, get your fitness back on track and make it stick.
This book will help you manage those overwhelming sensations to getting back on track with a healthy lifestyle. When our brains consent that something is easy—when we’re given a clear path with instructions—we can make small, attainable goals, and feel successful, which then leads to us craving more progress.
“Strategic Vitality is a powerful, concise book guiding you through a personal...
On the 19th episode of the Fitlandia podcast, Christa teams up with with a Kelli von Heydekampf for a special Interview/Mind Zoning® combo which will give you the courage to tackle change head-on. In addition to being one of Fitlandia’s practitioners, Kelli is a certified hypnotherapist running West Metro Hypnosis in Minneapolis.
Making a lifestyle change is similar to going through the stages of grief, people are faced with uncertainty, worry, and judgement. Generally, it’s easier to simply stay the course, so change isn’t something that people tend to embrace or run towards. While Fitlandia focuses on health, “the courage to change” isn’t restricted to diet, it can be applied to your professional life, your personal life, breaking out of addiction, literally anything that needs to happen.
Often we have an inner conflict with ourselves regarding change. We recognize that we want to be better, but question whether...
In this Mind Zoning® sample we tackle worry. Relaxation is the anthesis of worry, and so often we let that negative emotion have power over us when there are an infinite number of better ways to spend that energy. Over the course of this 11-minute Mind Zoning® we find an isolated spot of relaxation in our body and slowly spread that feeling throughout.
This strategy for mental health is Fitlandia’s signature meditations and they key to elevating your mood and losing weight naturally.
Pro tips: Engaging your mind to support you is your most powerful wellness tool available. As you’re strengthening your mind, you can also support your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional bodies with essential oils. If you’re new to using them, we recommend this Ultimate Reference Guide to Essential Oils Uses and Benefits to help you navigate this resource.
In this complimentary Mind Zoning® we take 18 minutes to walk you along a path toward positivity.
As with all Mind Zonings®, you don’t have to be “good” at meditation to reap the benefits. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and let your mind follow the voice.
First, we ask you to focus your eyes on a single spot in your surroundings. A piece of your desk or a spot on the ceiling. Then we begin to focus on your breathing and our thoughts. Isolating your thoughts, releasing all concerns, doubts, and worries, we then encourage you to close your eyes and allow us to guide you along the remainder of the journey.
Becoming aware of every point on your body, we take relaxation down to the cellular level. Allow yourself to relax and let everything go. In this state, the mind is more receptive to new information and new thoughts. Receiving messages of positivity, encouragement, and affirmation is the first step in your fitness...
In unsettling times of change, it’s more important than ever to pause, take a breath, and re-orient yourself. Change of any kind can feel overwhelming at times, but the power of gratitude is a way to ground ourselves and find the power, will, and strength to carry on. As we gear up for the holidays and enjoy this season of thankfulness, it’s a perfect time to focus on gratitude and be appreciative of what we have around us.
“At Fitlandia, we genuinely believe that gratitude is the foundation of any change.” - Christa King
According to this study done by two psychologists, people who kept daily recordings of gratitude had higher levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, optimism, and energy. Additionally, this article by Shape Magazine discusses how gratitude can bring you more energy, increased happiness, and more restful sleep. It follows that if you wake up more refreshed and energized then you’ll be more determined to be fit and healthy....
On this episode, Christa welcomes Vonie Kalich who is a life coach and fitness professional with over 25 years of experience in the industry. Vonie Kalich discusses NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) which encompasses our words, thoughts, actions, and how we operate throughout our day.
Only a small percentage of people are able to reach and attain their goals because they haven’t changed their mental behavior. As children we take in everything, we’re a sponge. We absorb all the positive and the negative. If you spill a glass of milk and are reprimanded, you’ll take that in and it will become a negative belief about yourself being clumsy. People end up developing negative mind patterns, through millions of experiences like this and NLP is about changing those patterns and shifting us from “I could go to the gym” to “I can go to the gym” to “I will do it.”
She uses a mantra of “Clean,...
In this episode of the Fitlandia Podcast, we introduce you to the process of Mind Zoning®. Mind Zoning® is like hypnosis or meditation for weight loss and serves to reorient negative thought patterns in your brain. Those negative thoughts are self-reinforcing, so if you keep putting off exercise because you’re too busy, then you’ll take it out on yourself and keep digging that hole deeper. The brain takes the well-worn path, and often that path involves managing stress with sugar, alcohol, and carbs in order to soothe. Mind Zoning® is what makes Fitlandia unique and serves as the first step in our member’s fitness journey. Rewriting these negative thoughts allows you to stop dieting, embrace the power of positivity, and make a healthy lifestyle change.
There are two types of thought patterns: ones that you’re consciously aware of (I need to get groceries today) and ones that happen...
You all know what it’s like when your mind is “in the zone.” You’re focused, relaxed, and on target. The act of day dreaming, meditation, prayer, and even hypnosis all have a similar impact on the brain; they help to slow down the activity, get you relaxed and focused so that you’re able to gain insight or change a behavioral pattern in the mind. We call it Mind Zoning®.
I’m about to share with you a super-easy tip you can use to support your own weight loss efforts without ever dieting.
Most of my friends have heard this story but I wanted to share it here and get it out to a broader audience in hopes that will help you on your weight-loss journey. In 2010 I was working to drop the remaining 30-pounds I had left to reach my goal weight. I was working out six hours a week eating a maximum of 1,500 cal a day. And I wasn’t losing a pound.
Feeling completely frustrated I sought the...
