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!

Exercise is a tool for optimization. There is no one single way to accomplish this, there are many avenues!  However, If this one big thing is misjudged you could be headed for disaster; the amount of fatigue in your workouts.
If you notice that you barely get what you put into exercise, you might be falling for this huge fallacy in fitness, that states of fatigue are required to get results.
The truth is that your body doesn’t require you to kill it and walk around with sore muscles.  Join Rui and Jenn for an episode of Exercise Science Insider to explore the inner workings of fatigue and exercise.  
What you’ll learn in this episode:
  • Some of the neural and muscular inner workings of fatigue and exercise
  • Why you don’t want to waste your workouts on too much fatigue
  • There are connections between pain and exercise fatigue
  • How we help our clients understand this concept so that they can get more out of every workout.
