Business Machine 0048 - Carolin Soldo

February 27, 2017

Carolin is a well respected business coach, specializing in helping passion-driven women bring their skills to the world and launch thriving online coaching businesses with international reach, make an impact, and create free and abundant lives. She's built a seven figure business while maintaining a healthy work-life balance b/c she's so dedicated to being fully present with her two young boys.

Mission: Helping women create the life of their dreams by empowering them and giving them the tools they need to do just that.

Mistake: When she first started, she spent her first year-and-a-half tied to her desk, working alone and focusing on doing things cheaply instead of with quality. It was fear that held her back from quitting her corporate job and committing fully to her business, and because of that her personal relationship with her family, her business, and her sanity suffered.

-Book: Think and Grow Rich

-Quote: “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it! Begin it now.” - William Hutchison Murray

Eat With: Tony Robbins and Mark Zuckerberg

App/Tech: Facebook Messanger, Calendar


Legacy: She hopes to show her boys that she took some risks, even when it wasn't always easy, and she worked hard to succeed, even if she didn't always do so. She wants them to feel that they are limitless and free to do what they want to, whether that means college or just finding a job, and to go for what they are driven to do.

Fitness Machine 008 - Eating Fat

October 19, 2016

Today on the Fitness Machine, Justin talks about eating fats and what is good fat versus bad fat.

We need to eat good, healthy fats to lose weight.
  • There's a central fatty acid that the body needs that we can't produce, only consume
  • Eating healthy fats keeps body satisfied, balances hormones, and gives energy
  • Don't eat processed food.
  • It consists of eating only meat and veggies.
Justin's favorite fat:
  • Coconut Oil: A saturated fat that everyone needs for brain development.
Sugar: Yay or nay? 
  • Sugar is sugar, though how the body takes it depends on what the source is
  • Blueberries have other properties other than sugar to help keep you healthy, so good thing to have
  • Really only need about 2 servings of fruit a day
  • Sugar alcohol (or any sugar substitute) is generally bad for you and needs to be done in moderation
Morning breakfast for good fat:
  • Greek yogurt with almonds and blueberries.
Eat smaller portions throughout the day.
  • Stay away from large meals at lunch!
  • The serotonin release that comes after eating causes a crash afterwards, thus having a large meal before bed is more beneficial to your health and your energy throughout your day.
Fasting in afternoon:
  • Not for everyone
  • With the insulin that is released upon eating, avoiding that and the crash throughout the day can keep the energy going longer
  • Getting all of your calories at night won't have you gaining weight as long as you're not obtaining too many calories
Good fatty dinner:
  • Eating a grass-fed beef burger with avocado, ketchup, and mustard, a sweet potato or sweet potato fries on the side, and a side of salad or broccoli.
  • The basics: A protein, veggie, and a potato, fries or fats (like avocado or nuts).

Fitness Machine 007 - Fitness Through Injury

October 12, 2016

Today on the Fitness Machine, Justin talks about injuries and how to work-out through them so you can continue to stay fit and healthy.

What is being fit?
  • Being able to perform tasks through every day life and feel good while doing it.
How to stay healthy and fit through injury:
  • Do Physical Training
  • Strengthen the parts of your body that aren't injured
  • Stay active so it won't be difficult to return to later
  • Have an end goal and keep it in mind while working out to stay with it through the rough times
Is there ever a time that we have reached a goal and thus can stop working out?
  • Can never stop getting better at staying healthy
  • There is no such thing as a "fast result." It takes time
  • It's okay to mess-up every now and then, just get back into it and keep going
  • Take it one day at a time. It takes every day to improve and keep going
Bottom line: If you're injured, you can still likely work-out and improve your health. Don't let it defeat you!

Fitness Machine 006 - Future of Fitness

October 5, 2016

Today on the Fitness Machine podcast, Justin talks about where he thinks fitness will be within the next ten years.

For the next ten years:
  • He hopes to see that the mindset of working out for weight loss lessens, and instead is replaced with a "Functional Training" mindset.
  • He hopes to find that more people are looking to use movement to work out so they can stay generally fit.
In ten years, he sees State of Fitness as:
  • Opening more space for people
  • More climbing and obstacle courses
  • Keeping the Dumbbells, Kettlebells, and Barbell training
  • Keiser Unit for cables will likely be taken out
  • Keep Cardio Machines and bikes
  • Getting rid of treadmills so people can go walk and run outside
Corporate Wellness:
  • Smaller businesses are now using gyms and wellness benefits for recruiting
  • People are getting to know one another while working out
Core Values in Fitness that won't change:
  • Customer Service - Wanting to making people feel safe and welcome while being there and working out.
  • Online Marketing and Content - Bringing people into the door by having a strong, professional and trustworthy online presence.
