Knowing when to hit the pause button

Knowing when to hit the pause button

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes...including you.” In this episode, I share my recent realization that I am both physically and mentally getting burnt out. Recognizing the opportunity to minimize some of my efforts in order to recharge for what comes next, I hope that my story helps you find your own opportunity to hit the pause button and reflect on what is most important to you so you want to shape your life towards what matters most.

Interns: Because we give a sh*t w/Kaylan Swartz and Michael Klepfer

Interns: Because we give a sh*t w/Kaylan Swartz and Michael Klepfer

"The expert in anything was once a beginner." In this episode, I welcome Kaylan Swartz and Michael Klepfer to talk about their experience as new interns at Revival Fitness. We discuss their fitness backgrounds, what drove them to sign up to be an intern in the first place, and how they want to be positive examples of leadership within our local fitness community.

Kaylan is a native Marylander and lifelong fitness and sports enthusiast. As a former Division I college athlete, she loves competition and knows the benefits of leading an active lifestyle. Kaylan works full-time on foreign policy and defense issues for the federal government and spent some time doing policy work on Capitol Hill. Kaylan is a new(ish) mom to 10-month-old Clark and lives in Maryland with Clark, her husband Charlie, and their bonkers dog Max.

Michael Klepfer found a love for fitness around thirty. Before then, exercise was a requirement to within fitness standards. Klep joined Revival Fitness in early 2019 and that was the beginning of turning fitness from a chore to a hobby. Klep wants fitness to be fun and set a good example for others out there to include his two children, Arya and Leonidas.

1.5 Mile Run Test: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

“I don’t run to add days to my life, I run to add life to my days.” In this episode, I discuss my recent results in the 1.5-mile run test as part of my annual Air Force Fitness Assessment. It has been two years since I’ve tested, and I get nervous every single time. I also share my perspective on the training components I use how to smartly prepare for the test and provide a FREE six-week training plan for you that you can use to improve your run time.
