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!
