"The most entertaining weight loss and fitness show on radio." Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy radio show.
On tonight's show, Doctor Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about the only weight loss board game from Vicki Sorenson creator of The Fitness Challenge. We also spoke with Fran Powell with the Painmaster Patch who shared how his product can help treat a wide range of injuries and painful conditions. Then we spoke with Michelle Ufer-Herold the Spa Director at Chateau Elan, Atlanta's best kept spa and resort secret.
Everyone knows that losing weight is difficult because it is so tough to stick with your exercise program for any length of time. That's where The Fitness Challenge comes in. This game is for any age or fitness level. Players compete against each other during their 8 week game. Exercise 3 times in a week and you get a bunch of stars. The player with the most stars wins a prize. And this is where the fun comes in, the loser has to pay up. That could mean washing the winner's car, cleaning their house or babysitting their kid. This game is a great way to keep compliant. Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy are about to go head to head and give it a try. Check out Vicki's website www.fitnesschallenge.com for more information and all the places you can get the game. Vicki lost 60 pounds on it!
When Dr Fitness took his girlfriend to the Chateau Elan for a romantic getaway he was blown away by the great food, the relaxing atmosphere and the superb service. He and his girlfriend left relaxed, recharged and refreshed. Michelle Ufer-Herold, the Spa Director shared some of the services and events that the doctor missed. For instance, each year you can stomp the grapes at the award winning vineyard that is on site. They also have a heated indoor pool, golf, tennis and horses for your pleasure. There is so much more to see and do, please check out their website www.chateauelan.com and see for yourself. They are having Valentine's Day specials so be sure to think of that if you want to be a star for your significant other this V-Day.
As you know Dr Fitness is a chiropractor and he helps people deal with pain on a regular basis. He came across the Painmaster patch and he can't stop talking about it. This small portable device uses micro current therapy which uses small pulsating currents of electricity that cannot be felt on the afflicted area in order to alleviate the pain. You just slap a couple of these patches on the area that hurts and forgot about it for a few hours. Then low and behold you will be amazed at the improvement in the pain. It is common for patients to have pain at an 8 level when they go to sleep then wake up and the pain is down to a 3 or 4 level when they use the patches. Only doctors can prescribe this therapy so be sure to ask your doctor about it. If they have any questions they and you can check out Fran's websites www.painmastercanada.com or www.painmasterpatch.com Fran said that if you want to try the device risk free have your physician send an email to chris at painmasterproducts dot com and (for a limited time) he will send a device to your doctor for you to try at no charge. This device does a great job at reducing inflammation and helping injured cells to heal.
Dr. Fitness also chimed in with his tips about what to do if you have a lot of weight to lose. Here are a few of Dr. Fitness' tips...Number 1, set short term goals. Number 2, manage your expectations...you didn't gain the weight in 30 days and you definitely won't lose the weight in 30 days. And Number 3, don't have an all or nothing mentality. If you only have time to exercise for 10 minutes do that...a little bit each day is better than nothing. There was a lot more from Dr. Fitness, so you will have to listen to the show to find out all the rest of these great tips. And I'm sure he'll post all the tips on his blog.
