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.... Show More

In episode 46, Brandi and Tina are continuing on their journey to empower women by telling their stories. This is what we are calling The Empowerment Project. We're giving women the opportunity to tell THEIR stories (in case you're tired of hearing ours). We believe that in telling your story, whatever it is, gives you a sense of empowerment. It allows you to get "it" out of your head and once released into the univ...

In Episode 44 we you heard Lindsay tell her story followed by Brandi and Tina discussing some of the highlights. One of the themes extracted was the idea of what we're now calling the "Improvement Season." Most people consider the time between competitions, regardless of sport, the time to  get bigger, faster or stronger; focusing on the physical aspects of improvement. In this episode we are challenging everyone to vie...

In 2019 we had this crazy idea that people might actually enjoy listening to us talk about things we normally talk about just between us. So one day in October, we decided to record our conversation. We were so excited we never introduced ourselves or even told anyone what they were listening to in that first episode. We really had no idea or expectation of how people would respond, but here we are a year later with 50 episodes and...

In Episode 41, Brandi and Tina discuss what happens when changing training and nutrition aren't always the answer to the biofeedback we're receiving from clients. Weight spikes, or strange fluctuations in an otherwise "on point" training and nutrition program can indicate something more going on that can't be addressed with training or nutrition changes alone; or even at all.

    Coming to you live from Tina's bed (you have to listen to find out why), Brandi and Tina discuss how beauty standards and bias can impact placement in a subjective sport like physique competition. We also discuss how our own bias toward what we see as beautiful, in ourselves as well as others, can have an impact on our own self-image outside of any sport.

    Ladies and gentleman, the eternal snow day we call the COVID-19 pandemic is OVER! Well, not really over but what we mean is that it's time to stop pretending we'll "go back to normal" any day now and all the fun foods, alcohol, and lack of activity we've been partaking in will just magically disappear. We've been at this thing about 4 months now, and it's time we take back control (or gain control if you...
