Coaching & Cocktails

Coaching & Cocktails

Don't get weird, use your head and everything will be OK! Center Stage Athletics coaches, Tina and Brandi, discuss all things life, health, fitness, nutrition, training, the pursuit of athletic endeavors and the mind-body-spirit connection through it all. We get into some hard topics and real issues facing us all as we share our own experiences with a light-hearted twist (of lime) and a side of humor, realism, and sometimes even a little science!We're not here to give you the same old, dry (albeit useful) information. We're realists and have big thoughts about the mental and emotional aspect of all of life's challenges and triumphs. Let's just say we've been through it and now we want to share it! Sit back, have a listen and a laugh and realize that you are 100% in control and definitely not alone in the things you may be struggling with.

    In Episode 78, Brandi and Tina discuss the recent phenomenon of clients who have come back and are "starting over." Maybe you feel like if you have to "start over&...

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
