Episode #1: What’s Your Why?
There’s a “why” for every decision that we make. Husband and wife team Robin and Rudy discuss making the decision to embark on a plan for those who want to get in shape. Rudy has been a trainer for over 20 years. Robin was the reluctant participant until she dipped her toe in the water and began to see the results in her health and appearance. Together they provide inspiration and tips on how to adopt a healthier lifestyle! In this episode, they help you address the first question, “what’s your why?”Grab your checklist and join us to start your own fitness journey!
Episode #2: Planning & Assessment
Ready. Set. Go? If you drive a car and turn out the lights and navigation system, you probably won’t know where you’re going. Preparing before you start an exercise program can be a similar experience. What is your personal health situation? What kind of injuries or limitations might impact what you can do? What’s in your family history that you should consider? What kind of time do you realistically have to work out? Today we’re talking about how being armed with this information and more, will help you develop a successful routine that works for YOU!
Episode #3: Cardio!
We kick off this session with cardio, an essential part of the 3-legged stool associated with fitness. Running, walking, swimming, playing basketball and soccer are just a few examples of cardiovascular training. But cardio isn’t just for athletes; activities like these enhance your ability to perform everyday activities…chasing kids, moving furniture, running for the metro and more. Here we discuss the multiple benefits of including cardio in your routine.

Episode #4: Strength Training
As we age, our muscle mass naturally decreases. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! In this episode we’re unpacking the benefits of strength and weight training, and how it helps your body work beyond your workout! Imagine having stronger bones, easier weight management, and sharper thinking skills, not to mention a sculpted body! Watch here to find out some of the critical components needed for success!

Episode #5: Meet Rashida Green and See Why She’s Our First Fitness Hero!
In this inspirational success story Rashida Green shares her “why” and tells us how she lost 60 lbs. and went from a size 22 to a size 14 in 4 months! She’s open and authentic in describing how her weight loss journey has changed her life. Now Rashida coaches people who want to lose weight and be healthier. You won’t want to miss her story!
Episode #6: Vitamins and Dietary Supplements
As hard as we try, we just don’t get everything we need from our food intake. So we incorporate vitamins and other dietary products to supplement our health. Some have been recommended by our doctor and through our own additional research, we’ve discovered others that work for us.
In this episode of “The Fitness Roadmap” we talk about it all – the things that keep us going, why we use them and what we found to be their benefits. As always, before taking medications or supplements, be sure to do your research and check with your health care professional, to make sure that you’re doing what’s best for YOU.
