Fitness Digest – Nov 14, 2021

OMG! I can’t believe it! After a number of false starts, my new fitness podcast is finally 100% available.

I know, I know, I have said that before – but this time, I mean it. Second Wind Fitnesscan now be found pretty much anywhere you listen to audio. Here is a list of places to follow/subscribe, if you are having trouble. 

As I begin the second half of my first century on this planet (I turned 50 in the summer), I plan to use my background in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, endurance sport, dance, and a lifelong love of movement to help you move through this world with ease, now, and later in life. This podcast isn’t about getting skinny, ripped or jacked – but it is about being fit, capable, strong, healthy and happy!

I hope you will subscribe to it and – if you would be so kind – review and rate it in your favourite podcast app. It would mean the world to me.

Brock Armstrong Coaching – Your Past is not Your Future
The other day a member a person that I coach reached out with an anxiety issue. They were convinced that despite all the progress they had made with their eating and exercising habits that they would eventually falter and it would all end up being for naught. This is how I handled it.
