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!

This episode is a stunning example of how simplicity and science can harmonize for effective exercise.  This harmony isn’t possible without a deep understanding of movement and neural pathways, but don't worry we make this lesson fun and interesting!
Join Jenn Schwartz and Rui Reis for a conversation about a novel way of injury rehab, exercise and re-wiring the brain for successful exercise and pain-free movement.  
This will be an enlightening episode if you are open to the idea that injury and joint rehab exercise does not have to be centered on taking away movements or making the exercise ‘less stressful’.  We will show you that there is a type of training that focuses on your mind and body’s attention to engaged and fluid exercise.  It is a miraculous way to leave cycles of pain, injury and bad exercise.  
What you’ll learn in this episode:
  • What it means to use imagery in strength training to improve perceptions of pain
  • Novels ways to train the brain out of cycles of pain and exercise
  • Brain-mapping and drawing on how our brain collects information to improve resistance training
  • Important tips on the sensation, pain and your exercise
