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!

Functional Nutrition, Sports Nutrition and Female Leadership with Jaclyn Sklaver of Athleats Nutrition.

When it comes to the complexity of your health, we have to think bigger than just making fitness and nutrition as simple as fast food. You must think of it as nurturing an asset. There’s no better person to help us see the big picture about nutrition and a long-term successful relationship with our food than Jaclyn Sklaver MS, CNS, LDN, CDN Board Certified & Licensed. 

In this episode Jaclyn shares several knowledge gems about Functional Nutrition and she discusses important topics in Functional Sports Nutrition and research.  The conversation also touches on one of my favorite topics; female athletes and leadership.

Jaclyn is a passionate, self-employed leader in sports nutrition.  Her clients include NFL players and college athletes of all types, combine trainees, weightlifting athletes, diet through hormonal changes and fitness competition athletes.  Her sports background even includes authoring a study of over 200 NFL Combine athletes and data driven sports nutrition.


She has a Masters of Science in Nutritional Sciences, is a Board certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) LDN (Licensed Dietetic Nutritionist), CISSN (Certified Sports Nutritionist), and also hold fitness certifications in USA Weightlifting and the NASM. 


P.S... She's the first nutrition based guest on Think Fit. Be Fit. and one of my favorite follows on instagram.


If you just have a love affair with healthy eating (like me), you’ll relate to the excitement in my voice as I ask Jaclyn questions on all my favorite nutrition topics!


If you are interested in using a nutrition professional for your own fitness or athletic goals, this episode will help you understand the value of science based Functional Nutrition and you’ll receive tips on researching in this vast field of study. 


If you are a budding professional in athletic training or sports nutrition, you don’t want to miss the real talk about the industry.


Topics we covered in this episode:

  • Women in sports leadership and career development
  • The gender disparity in research for health and sports 
  • Why teenage and college athletes are ideal great nutrition coaching clients
  • Combine prep vs offseason NFL nutrition plans
