What is Explore Your Fitness?

 Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenido! Bienvenue!

Thank you for stopping by.

 

My name is Jason Blevins, and I created Explore Your Fitness because I’ve always loved working out, either on my own or with my friends. Being a personal coach is still a consideration of mine, but I want to take some time to learn from the experts first. AND while I’m at it, I want to share their wisdom with you.

I’ve been working on exploreyourfitness.com since November 2015, and I would love your advice. If you have a few minutes, check the site out, leave me a review or comment, and let me know what you think.

Explore Your Fitness will help you discover fitness trends, new workouts, technology, and more! Most importantly, we will help you discover what you need to achieve your fitness goals. You’ll learn from experts and connect with others who share your challenges.

You can do this. We can help.

Be sure to come back weekly and subscribe to the podcast.

My hope is that you will stay committed to your fitness goals but be flexible in your approach to achieving them.  Explore what different styles of training and nutrition can do to bring you closer to your goals.

I want to bring you inside the hearts and minds of personal trainers, coaches, nutritionists, creators and innovators who have a passion for fitness, a passion for helping you live life to the fullest. So whether you’re a fitness professional or a curious enthusiast like me, you’ll hopefully leave this site having found a new style of training, new technology, a new diet or supplement or simply a new perspective on fitness. And as I would tell my younger self, DON’T BE SHY.  I want to hear from you. What are you interested in or struggling with? Comments and iTunes Reviews are great ways to say what’s up, but if you want to reach me directly and get a faster response, jasonblevins@exploreyourfitness.com is the way to go.

About me and my better half

If you want to hear a couple of personal stories about me and where my fitness journey began, listen to episode one.  But here’s a brief rundown: I grew up in Oklahoma, started playing football in the fifth grade and continued until I graduated high school.  I’ve had a love for fitness and working out for a long time, but struggled with an unhealthy lifestyle and self-destructive habits.

Oklahoma’s where I met the love of my life, my wife, Heather.  In 2010, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  It was a very difficult time, to say the least, but she survived.  She persevered and somehow stayed positive through it all and I love her for that.  She’s my hero and my inspiration.  Unfortunately, it sometimes takes an event like this to remind us of our mortality and how precious our time is. She’s been cancer-free for several years now, but the whole experience has made us both much more aware of our health and what we can do to improve it.

Now that you know what Explore Your Fitness is about and who I am, I hope that you’ll be a part of this adventure. Everyone has a gift to share and a story to tell.  If you know someone who is making a difference in people’s lives with fitness, help me get them on the podcast to share their story.  I also encourage you to subscribe to the show and leave a rating and review so that I can get better at this and make Explore Your Fitness a resource that you can depend on. Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

To your health,

Jason
