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.

   

Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.

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...

The True Impact of Fitness with Alan Shaw

"Every person that comes into Rhapsody, whether they're a member or not ... I think I can say, hands down, they would say, 'Man, they are probably the most welcoming community that I've been a part of.' And that's purposeful."

In today's episode of the PT Profit Podcast, I had the privilege of speaking with Alan Shaw of Rhapsody Fitness in Charleston, SC. We talk all about the pure humanity of fitness and the sense of belonging that can be fostered. Given a lot of what's been going on in the world over the past year, it was so fantastic to talk to Alan about an organization that fully embraces that and strives to better their community.

We get into sales. We get into training. We discuss staffing, clients, and what it would take for Rhapsody to expand. And we talk about attitude, outreach and truly seeing each other and supporting each other as human beings.

You'll hear Alan and I discuss:
- How important authenticity is from the front desk to coaching to...
