We all want to be fit.
But who wants to go to a gym every day? And what if lifting weights actually bulks you up rather than slims you down? And what if you’re eating the wrong foods before and after a workout?
It’s exhausting trying to figure out the best fitness strategies to lose weight and feel great.
That’s where today’s guests can offer you some invaluable advice. Considering all the theories and practices this power couple have learned, both from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and beyond, we feel safe in saying that what they don’t know about fitness is not worth knowing.
Devon’s wellness story dates back to her late 20’s. Despite being a dancer and appearing slim and healthy, she had a disordered relationship with food, and was pre-diabetic and pre-menopausal: her blood sugar and hormones were completely out of balance.
Through a combination of Gyrotonic training, holistic anti-aging strategies and nutrition, Devon completely healed her Lyme disease, balanced her hormones and now feels healthier than ever.
For Rob, health was just about aesthetics, about looking good. Flash-forward 10 years, and an unfortunate honeymoon photo made Rob realize that his “just work out and don’t worry about the food” theory had resulted in a big gut.
He looked worse than he’d ever looked.
Now, after treating his body with a series of short-term goals, he’s shed 30 pounds and looks 10 years younger!
