Tina Muir is a pro runner and host of the Run to the Top podcast. She didn’t like running before and once shied away from any sort of running activity. When she did start running, she was initially embarrassed and ran in the dark. She mostly blogs about running but she also blogs about body image and shares it’s normal to have some sort of insecurity since even the most perfect of bodies are owned by people who have hidden struggles.

Today Tina will talk about her fitness journey and the reason she started her blogs especially on the topic of body image.

 

"Those airbrushed magazines aren't reality, but what is reality is what we are actually feeling even though only a few people will admit it.” Tina Muir

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Tina not only shares her running stories but also her struggles. She says sharing her struggles allow people to relate to her and somehow feel good that they’re not alone.
  • Talked a lot about weight and how she viewed herself. She insists that she's not perfect and those air-brushed magazines aren't reality.
  • We have different shapes and sizes but it's so hard not to compare yourself with other people especially since social media always shows us the best pictures of people who have flaws too.
  • People like to workout because they like to eat.
  • Started with not being able to exercise 6 minutes without stopping now she can do 15 minutes straight because she trained her body that way.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • We all have a different approach to health and wellness. We need to stop segregating amongst ourselves.
  • Restricting yourself on food you want might make you feel down and overindulged since you're trying to fill a void.

Darren Casey is a transformation coach from the UK. His clientele is what you would call Type AAA entrepreneurs or people who, in his own words, “earn seven figures a year to seven figures a month.” He developed The Rapid Method which is a 12-week health and fitness commitment for his clients and produced amazing results.

With over 20,000 coaching calls of success, he understands the power of having the right kind of mindset to overcome the challenges of hustle-driven people. To him, the enemy of longevity and wellness is the hustle.

In today’s episode, Darren speaks about his line of work, what the “hustle” does to your body and state of mind, and how a healthy and fit lifestyle is all in the details.

 

“Treat your body as good as you treat your business.” Darren Casey

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Darren’s career, the people he’s coached as well as their nature and issues.
  • Heavy duty hustle culture breaks people especially on social media. These people hustle themselves to the hospital, killing them both physically and mentally.
  • The dangers of being addicted to the hustle especially when it comes to your work-life balance.
  • When it comes fitness, the instant gratification culture is forcing people to commit to unrealistic goals.
  • Covering the basics of sleep, inflammation, and hormones are mandatory when achieving a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
  • Small changes like better sleep or mental clarity are still considered an achievement and deserve to be celebrated just as much as losing weight or body fat.
  • Micro managing such as blood tests and supplementation aren't necessary until the basic lifestyle changes are done.
  • The quality of your sleep, the toxins you have to avoid or reduce, and food quality are critical details when it comes to a healthy lifestyle.
  • Being honest with your current self and imagining what’s going to happen to you if you don’t fix anything helped Darren’s clients get motivated into his program.
  • Darren says the risks of not doing about it involve not just health implications but also involve matters likes missed experiences, vacations, events, and even relationships.
  • It is mandatory to get a ton of support whether from professionals like Darren or simply the community around you.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Food quality matters. A 2000 calorie McDonald's diet compared to a 2000 calorie diet high quality food. You're going to be worlds apart five or ten years from now.
  • People will totally overestimate what you can accomplish in 12 weeks and dramatically underestimate, with the right program, what you can accomplish in 12 months.
  • You're not going get a wakeup call saying "you’re going the wrong way!"
