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!

 A sharp mindset is not only helpful in our exercise, but it can also be an edge for the athlete or anyone who loves science with their fitness .  Our guest today is esteemed Physical Therapist, Dr. Seth Blee of Inova Sports Medicine and is the head Physical Therapist for the Washington Nationals and Washington Spirit and recently featured on ESPN in the E60 documentary of Alex Smith of the Washington Football Team.

One of the main topics of this episode is Seth's unique approach to Physical Therapy.  You will hear Jennifer and Seth mention some of these techniques such as PNF, dry needling and neuromuscular control used in rehabilitation.  

Seth Blee PT, DPT, CFMA, CSCS  has completed extensive continuing education coursework and training and is one of the principal instructors at the Institute for Physical Arts.  

If you are a trainer or strength coach, a student, a therapist of any kind this is obviously a podcast for you as Seth is a teacher, manager and learner.  We all can learn so much from him.

If you are unvested in your training process, this episode will be worth your time because it's an inside look into how the best and most engaged Physical Therapist’s think and operate in managing not only the World Series champions, The Washington Nationals

Rather than thinking about the multi million dollar arms that he works with or his role in Quarterback Alex Smith's incredible rehab story, think about the possibility of decreasing the ambiguity in the injury recovery process as the future of sports medicine or for yourself or your team.
