Think Fit. Be Fit.
Effective thinking for potent workouts
Think Fit. Be Fit. podcast is dedicated to optimizing exercise and overall human function.  It is best described as the intersection of exercise mechanics, muscle expertise, and embracing curiosity.  The human body is a wonderful teacher if you know how to listen to it, being open and having fun is part of that process.
Jennifer Schwartz, hostess and founder of Impact Your Fitness and Impact Sport Science Group has helped hundreds of athletes and people around Washington DC move without pain and exercise to their fullest potential.  
This podcast is important because people are missing out on living a better life because they don't understand that body awareness is a combination of taking feedback, listening, and learning.  It is not a practice of self-judgement and societal expectations.  Don't choose unhappiness over uncertainty.  Embrace the process!

Optimal health and fitness doesn’t have to be a guessing game.  Chronic illness, aging, old injuries or stress can get in the way of whole body fitness and feeling good while moving.  Functional Medicine can reverse the negative impacts of stress and life on our body.  A guided approach to whole health and fitness starts with measurements and data that the typical doc does not offer. Functional Medicine is the future.  If you want to realize the potential of your body with blood work, stool and genetic testing and if you are motivated to advance in age without chronic illness, then you’ll learn why Functional Medicine is the best solution.  


Please note that information in this episode this is NOT medical advice.

Themes of this episode:

Healthy expressions of genes and hormones can be stumped when a functional medicine approach is not taken.
