Obstacle course racing is the next soccer. Yeah, it's a 'thing'. You've probably heard of one. Or know someone who has---or will---do one. They change lives.
And for us MyFixitUpLifer's there's an extra cool part: It's loaded with DIY of building stuff. So if you’re not lacing up for your own obstacle course racing journey, without people to build the obstacles—for races or for backyards---the race is just a walk in the woods. So this MyFixitUpLife show will inspire the fire for the DIY of OCR.
Spartan Race’s (in)famous Race Director Norm Koch takes us behind the spectacle where the tools are machetes and chainsaws and a whole lotta work. And HGTV’s John Colaneri—co-host of America’s Most Desperate Kitchens and a Spartan racing / Cross-fit nut job (we love you anyway Johnny)—chimes in with fitness tips he uses to stay extra handsome.
This isn't about the gym. Or how fast you go. It's about life itself and building your own tools for the journey. As someone I admire wrote: I already know what it feels like to fail. I want to see what it's like to succeed.
Life happens to all of us. It's what we do about it that counts; how we handle the obstacles.
So tool up and come obstacle course racing with us Lifers, time for a little dirty fun.
Training and racing for obstacle races such as Spartan, Atlas, Tough Mudder and Battle Frog places unique demands on an athlete. These events require the ability to perform at far greater intensity than preparing for a marathon. Richard Diaz and his guest Dr. Harry Pino, a renowned sport scientist discuss these demands and the program written by Richard Diaz tailor made to prepare these athletes for the rigors of these intense competitions that he has justifiably named “The Dark Side” Lactate Tolerance Training for high intensity running
Obstacle course racing “Spartan Racing” is the fastest growing professional sport in the country. Hunter Mcintyre is the leading Reebok elite athlete on the Spartan Race circuit. Hunter, who to refers to himself as “The Sheriff” shares his story.
Spartan racing was the brain child of Joe De Sena, arguably one of the toughest extreme athletes in the world and founder of the original “Death Race”. Spartan Racing is edgy, running through fire, wading through freezing water, being electrocuted, climbing through mud pools and over walls from anywhere between 3-14 miles and up to 25 obstacles that you don’t get a chance to prepare for. Suffice to say, these races are challenging and there lies the appeal. Hunter was born to compete in these events and since 2012; he has never finished off of the podium. If you enjoy human gritty competition, Spartan racing is for you.
Still on call for a promised call-back I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever receive, especially given that my father's new PCP (primary care physician, not the other kind of PCP) accepted him. Now Silver Creek is nagging us to come up with a urologist and oncologist, which I thought was the purview of the PCP to recommend and refer. Maybe we can clarify all this on our next visit.
Otherwise, I'd be all set to go except that (1) I'm getting lazy and (2) I'm so hoarse I sound like a straight Harvey Keitel. So the Wayback Machine reliving of the last shutdown showdown takes us into the weekend, where I WILL be on the air tomorrow on American Daily Review and Constitution Radio, starting at 2PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific.
And as for Monday? You'll just have to log in to find out.

Becoming in tune with your higher self will allow you to make realizations that you haven’t truly lived your authentic self-much in this lifetime. The question that always resides within many is about WORTH, VALUE, EMPOWERMENT, TRUST and FAITH. Why are we so quick to stay in a state of PAIN, when glory is around the corner? Why do we dwell in the house of dis-empowerment, when we are empowered beings? Why is it that we have a hard time seeing the bigger picture and sticking to the journey, when an obstacle arises? There is no pain or sadness in the eyes of the universe, pain only resides in the mind and heart of the ego. When is enough, enough for you? When are you going to make those changes to create a life that you have always desired? These next 10 weeks together will bring you great clarity in many aspects of your life. Zak will guide you through meditations, clearings, heavenly transmissions, also how to connect with your ego pain body and work with the pain to find peace within every situation guided by your higher self. She will take a few calls if time permits and bring you personalized healings and messages. Zak is an intuitive soul healer and heavens messengers, she encompasses in assisting individuals embrace in the best version they allow themselves to be, by guiding them with love and integrity. Blessings, Love, Health and Prosperity
ISAIAH 57:14 SAYS, 14And it will be said, "Build up, build up, prepare the way, Remove every obstacle out of the way of My people." 15For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, "I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite.… We have a responsibility as blood bought believer to bring lost souls to Christ. Someone stood in the gap for us. Let us do the same for someone else. Psalms 51 says create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit in me.
1 corinthians 8:8-9 says, …8But food will not commend us to God; we are neither the worse if we do not eat, nor the better if we do eat. 9But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, dining in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things sacrificed to idols?…
Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations.
Setting up tools, building a project, and cleaning up can lead to some serious DIY fitness.
Mark & Theresa know first-hand how a DIY lifestyle keeps us healthy and trim. While Theresa keeps the piles of wood, paint cans, buckets, and hammers just to DIYing, Mark on-the-way-other-hand is DIY fitness extreme. Mark actually uses his hatchet, sledgehammer, buckets of rocks, pallets, wood as part of his morning fitness ritual. It’s how he gets ready for a Spartan Race.
Our guests are ready to share their DIY fitness tips.
This week we are blabbing with Jason Cameron, Matt Blashaw, Sara Bendrick, John Colaneri, and Justin DiPego.
