On today’s episode of FitFluential Radio, Kelly Olexa shares her story of how she became inspired to create the FitFluential company, what motivated her to make the fundamental changes in her life to get healthier, and her observations and insights into the health, fitness, and wellness industry.

We dive deep into her personal and business background and she explains why she feels there is a significant need to take the educational value and information in a different direction, presented to the public in a different way so that consumers of all walks of life can gain access to the real, raw information without feeling like they are stumbling or hitting a wall.

 

I really want everybody to know what I know, apply what I’ve learned, and change their future. – Kelly Olexa

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • How FitFluential got started
  • How Kelly became interested in the health, fitness, and wellness industry
  • Why she feels that information is segmented into specific fields online and what joining them into one central location could do to impact those in need.
  • What was her biggest “ah-ha!” moment
  • She shares her transformation journey
  • Her views on the relationship between stress and health
  • The phrase, “After 30, your metabolism slows down and it’s all up hill from there” is not true!
  • As humans, we always overestimate what we can accomplish in 6-months.
  • We are all unique – from our DNA to our lives – we are all unique. What works for one person may not work for you.
  • If you get your hydration right, get your sleep right, get your circadian rhythm and biology right – it opens a world of options for you that doesn’t include excessive dieting or killing yourself at the gym.
  • Your health is always going to be a journey. Do not ever give up.

 

Stop comparing yourself to everyone else. Commit to the long-term. – Kelly Olexa

Key Takeaway:

Open your mind. Be open and willing to listen to things and to listen to why. Most importantly, start looking at your life – not your pant size; not comparing your looks to others. Look at your stress. Look at your job. Look at your relationships. Look at everything. Be willing to say you’re ready to change. It’s okay to be skeptical, but be open and willing to investigate and to be your own health advocate.

In her 20s, Shannon Kaiser had everything a twenty-something could ask for. A steady job, an abundant source of income, a man who wanted to marry her, and lived in a flat that was better than what most her age can afford. Despite all the success, Shannon wasn't happy. Suffering with bouts of depression, struggling with an addiction to pain killers and a diagnosis of clinical depression, Shannon would often times find herself sobbing with sadness and frustration.

During one difficult bout of depression, Shannon believed her heard an inner voice say, “You have everything you need. Follow your heart.”  It was a pivotal moment. . Realizing she wasn’t being true to herself, she was with a man she didn’t want to marry, and had a job that drained the life out of her she radically changed her mindset, quit her day job and now, her life’s purpose is to help others feel alive, the same way she does today.

Today, Shannon inspires us with her journey, and what it truly means to follow your heart. Shannon explains why it’s important to visualize the future version of yourself and offers advice on using our fears to propel us to a higher plane.

 

"Recognizing we're not stuck is monumental in moving us forward.” Shannon Kaiser

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Your mindset is where happiness starts. You can free yourself by the power of your mind.
  • Stress reduction should be the long-term goal of every person regardless of whether they have a busy lifestyle or not.
  • Ask yourself what you can be thankful for instead of brooding over how hard your life is.
  • Think about what one steps you can take right now. It’s always the first step that gets you going farther.
  • The biggest fear would be what if you couldn't make money out of the thing you love. You have to condition yourself to believe in what's possible than be limited by the fear.
  • The chaos in your life can improve the way you live. Go and do what scares you.
  • Keep showing up for yourself and be the best version of yourself in the moment.
  • You got to break up with your issues. Ask yourself what is holding you back. Break up with that issue and cut it out of your system.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • It is so incredibly exhausting to be someone you aren't.
  • Fear isn't always bad. You have to recognize it and give it attention. Ignoring fear can sabotage us from moving forward and keep us stuck if we ignore it.
