Think Fit. Be Fit.

Think Fit. Be Fit. A Podcast Network Dedicated to Effective Thinking for Potent Exercise. Let's create a new conversation about your exercise. Our podcast helps to uncover how the fitness industry has misled us, and it will show you that if you believe in your ability to improve your body through exercise, you don’t need to rely on diluted or shallow information. Our current offering consists of two shows that will help bring your limitless human potential within reach. Think Fit. Be Fit. is released on Mondays and Fitness for Consumption is released on Wednesdays. We want to partner with our audience. Teaching you how to think outside the box and into the undertones of your exercise is the aim of TFBF Network. This ongoing conversation about the nuances of training will help trainers, coaches and fitness lovers connect deeper to their exercise and the process of exercise science.

Our view of fitness greatly influences how much we gain from our exercise efforts.  Creating fitness content that is helping us actualize physical potential is much more about education than motivating weight loss stories.

The lessons from three years of fitness podcasting are truly centered on being open minded.  The truth is that bias, emotion and perception create our reality and of course this relates to fitness.

When it comes to the human body, Size Matters.  And this is particularly so for those who are interested in increasing their muscle mass.  What exactly are we increasing, however, when our muscles grow?  And how much bigger should we try to be?  Is it just a matter of personal taste, or is there an optimal degree of hypertrophy for human movement?  Some think bigger is better, while others believe that too much can be detrimental t...

How many times are we going to listen to fitness experts having a conversation about cardio exercise being ‘good’ or ‘bad’?

Not this time, Jennifer and Remy Rory of MNE Fit Camp have a conversation about keeping our mind open, in a nonjudgemental spaciousness, to entertain different approaches to exercising our cardiovascular systems.

Exercise, it’s About Time, time under tension (TUT) that is.  If you lift weights you’ve most likely heard this term at some point along your journey. Good chance it was mentioned in a conversation, media piece or Google search related to recommendations for increasing muscle mass.   “They,” the collective voice of conventional wisdom on exercise, often propose that increasing TUT is a necessary step for building hypertrophy.  But....

Continuous exercise progress comes from your body’s natural wisdom that allows you to create, innovate, and push boundaries. 

The typical ‘exercise more to improve fitness’ model serves only a small population of active people. Without context most motivated exercisers are running themselves into the ground without any knowledge of how to rebound into a commitment with exercise that is long-term and sustainable. 

In this episode, J...

We say “Power” training you say: ___________? Power training, what sort of images does that conjure?  Little old ladies stepping off a curb or giant hulks performing snatches and cleans?  If you think snatches and cleans you’d be right.  But, if you think little old ladies stepping off of a curb, you’d also be right. Because power training is not about a specific set of exercises, it’s ultimately about load, acceleration and intent...

How often have you attempted dumbbell presses with half the weight of your barbell bench?  That should work, right? 

After all, if your barbell is balanced, you should have equal weight on both sides.  But unless you’re working with a pretty light barbell load, you recognized that splitting the weight in half doesn’t equate to a comparable workout.  You may think the challenge is related to shoulder stability, but you may want to t...

Ask any avid runner what they think about treadmills and they will say...potentially anything!  And for good reason.  Treadmills, like many fitness products, have their polarized camps of promoters and detractors.  Some say treadmills are more effective for conducting highly popular High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts, while others say treadmills are a lazier option, as the belt does the work for you.  Can both perspec...
