Building the Durable Athlete with Cristian Plascencia

Joining me today is Cristian G. Plascencia, co-founder of The Durable Athlete. Currently based out of Austin, Texas, Cristian's experience being a patient at a physical therapy facility led to what is now his life-long passion. I often say, "Either you are going to get the lesson that you need or the success that you want," and that personal mantra of mine further resonated as I talked with Cristian.

Cristian talks all about how he defines and classifies "athletes," and we have a great discussion on both mobility and breathing. We also break down burn out and how to avoid letting that get the best of you.

You'll hear us dive into:
- The two components that define "mobility."
- Breathing practices.
- Burn out and how to push through.

Becoming Your Own Health Advocate While Building a Fitness Empire with Holly Perkins

Today's episode was a privilege to record, and coaches, it is such a pleasure to share this interview I conducted with Holly Perkins. Holly was voted "Top Trainer to Watch" by Shape Magazine, and I knew that when we booked her, this interview would be amazing. Our conversation, however, did not just meet my high hopes and expectations; it blew me away.

In this episode, Holly shares with me how her own health journey created significant hurdles while she was at a peak in her career. Since then, she has transitioned her business entirely to the onIine space. We take a deep dive into the benefits of being a virtual coach and knowing your worth. The importance of not dismissing changes as "but" and instead embracing them as "and" was an undercurrent that we brought to the forefront later on in the episode.

This episode is an absolute must listen for FitPros and other entrepreneurs.

Holly & I talk all about:
- How to stay in the game and keep up with what you are doing.
- The...

Pelvic Health with Dr. Rachel Parrotta, Physical Therapist

Coaches, this informative episode is a must listen. Today I have the pleasure of sharing an interview with Dr. Rachel Parrotta, a physical therapist out on Long Island. During this conversation, we dove deep into Rachel's specialty: Pelvic Health. As a mother of two, I was eager to unpack the topics of pregnancy, birth and postpartum care with Rachel.

Rachel leads us through a discussion on anatomy and less discussed topics such as prolapse, what its symptoms are, and who the right professionals are to seek help with for it. Pelvic health is a topic that applies to all genders, but it is not frequently discussed openly, and I'm pumped to have Rachel joining us for this episode.

You'll hear us talk about:
- How you can help and support moms through their pregnancy.
- What a mother can do to prepare for pregnancy and birth.
- The differences and symptoms of both hypertonic and hypotonic pelvic floors.
...and so much more!

A Performer's Guide to Being Stage Ready with Jonathan Munoz

Today we have my good friend Jonathan Munoz joining us on this all-new episode of the PT Profit Podcast. Jonathan is a coach who works with stage performers, and he talks us through how he assesses performers and what makes that different from assessing a standard gen-pop client. In this episode, we also talked about prioritizing performers' fitness over aesthetic goals and what to focus on while training. Sometimes instead of aiming to hit the choreography that they feel is not yet perfect for them, a performer might instead look at honing in on the intermediary steps that get you from Point A to Point B. 

As a former performer myself, recording this episode was a treat! There are so many misconceptions that performers tend to live by, so I was pumped to break those down with Jonathan. Performers don't just need to attend classes specific to their skill. Performers are athletes, and so few of them recognize that fact. Jonathan and I talk about...
