In this episode, Trav and Dani chat about why boundaries are important, why you desperately need them and how to protect them fiercely.   Boundaries are KEY in protecting who we are and becoming who we want and need to be.  So often we people please, we take on too much, we take on the problems of others, or we don't ask for exactly what we need.  When we value ourselves, we are more able to implement boundaries that allow us to elevate ourselves and thrive.   
Injuries.  Major life turning points.  Career shifts. A move. Setbacks are inevitable, and make us feel defeated, like we're losing traction, and sometimes have us feeling like a failure.  How do you navigate setbacks without feeling like you're losing all your progress, whether it's in the gym, in your career, in a relationship or in life in general?  In this episode, we share 4 lessons setbacks have taught us in our life, and how we still use these principles TO THIS DAY.
If you're constantly moving from one nutritional program or diet to another, this episode is full of information on breaking the diet cycle.  This week, we chat about what nutrition for life looks like, why it's important to adopt a sustainable nutritional approach, and how easy it is to get caught up in the mix with new, shiny diet fads.  We unpack how we came to look at nutrition for the long haul and how YOU can start changing your mindset about nutrition.
In today's episode, WE GO DEEP.  We open up about deep relationships, why they are so important and how you can start cultivating deeper relationships in your own life.  We share openly what's been successful in our own relationship of 19 years, as well as how we've navigated conflict over the years.  We also discuss vulnerability and connection as the foundation of deep relationships and how trust, honesty, communication, praise and feedback are critical in developing relationships that go deeper.  
In this episode, we chat about the importance of body confidence, why it matters and why it's more than just a female issue.  We talk about how body confidence goes deeper than vanity, how it affect our mental health and wellbeing, and why understanding how to support someone with body confidence issues is such an important key in deep relationships.  Have a listen, and don't forget to subscribe, rate and review!
