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!

The automatic motions of our body are rarely thought of in terms of chronic pain and performance.  We are discussing a topic today that bridges all of those factors together; the diaphragm, breathing and the pelvic floor.  

Please welcome the 2nd Physical Therapist guest on Think Fit. Be Fit., Noelle.

Noelle Ekonomou has Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Saint Louis University and has received extensive training in both orthopedic, neurologic and acute rehabilitation. Noelle is passionate about helping others pursue their overall health and wellness goals and believes in providing the highest quality of care. With an integrated, whole-body rehabilitation model, Noelle uses extensive evaluation, examination and treatment procedures. She deeply explores the root cause of her patients’ injuries — considering musculoskeletal, vestibular, vision, neurologic, lymphatic, and cardiopulmonary systems.

Noelle has advanced her skills through continued post-graduate coursework for osteopathic manual therapies including muscle energy, strain-counterstrain, cranial and joint mobilizations, and fascial and lymphatic balancing. She has also been specially trained to perform internal pelvic floor muscle evaluation and treatment through the Hermann and Wallace institute.

In addition to her manual skills, Noelle also began her special interest in treating scoliosis and neuromuscular imbalances through the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI).
