Episode 059 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast welcomes Drew Mitchell from Penticton, BC, Canada to talk about his ongoing efforts to improve physical literacy in younger generations and the general population as a whole. We discuss the reduction in physical education requirements for our children in schools, as well as the lack of emphasis on teaching the teachers about proper physical education instruction and curriculum development. Drew also discusses the social benefits of being involved in sports, athletic pursuits, team building and competition, as kids are forced to deal with each other face-to-face and in the moment. These types of interactions also teach kids how to deal with failure and losing in a constructive manner, operating with rules, personal responsibility, accountability and consequences. This discussion is important for everyone to hear because of the far-reaching implications for health, productivity and general enjoyment of life. Drew also explains how much work and time is needed to build physical literacy at the local community level. The task is daunting, but incredibly necessary.Drew Mitchell works as a consultant focused on the development of physical literacy at the community level and promoting the Canadian Sport for Life Movement.

Jason provides us with a detailed walk through his career in the Navy Seals and identifies the physical tests and ‘weeding-out’ process used by the organization to find the best individuals for the job. While everyone talks about training like a “Seal”, it is not until you hear about the actual tests and training that you quickly figure out that this lifestyle is not for everyone. We also get to hear about the grueling rehabilitation process Jason went through following significant injuries incurred in a firefight in Iraq. The numerous surgeries and physical therapy required to essentially put Jason back together revealed his true grit and resiliency. Jason discusses these experiences and the leadership required to battle adversity as a motivational speaker and author.

On September 13, 2007, outside of Fallujah, Iraq, LT Redman’s Assault Team came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire, and he was severely wounded in the ensuing firefight. While recovering at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, LT Redman wrote and hung a bright orange sign on his door, which became a statement and symbol for wounded warriors everywhere. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, the Purple Heart, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, two Combat Action Ribbons and the US Army Ranger tab along with numerous other personal and unit awards. LT Redman is the author of “The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader,” which details lessons learned in leadership and overcoming adversity throughout his Navy SEAL career, his service in Afghanistan and Iraq and his personal journey with his wife Erica and their three children.Redman retired from the Navy in 2013, and founded Wounded Wear, a Non-Profit organization which supports combat wounded warriors and families of the fallen.

 Episode 047 - Kara Lazauskas: A True Titan of Muscle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3168

In Episode 047 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast, we welcome muscle researcher and Titan Games competitor, Kara Kilian Lazauskas. We speak with Kara about her development as a young athlete, growing up in a ‘wrestling’ family with a wrestling mat in the basement. This hard working and competitive attitude persisted throughout her high school and college athletic careers, culminating in an impressive performance at the recent Titan Games hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Kara also has extensive experience working and studying as an exercise physiologist, conducting everything from muscle biopsies to testing aerobic capacity. We dive into her expertise around athletic performance and the science behind testing and training.Kara was born and raised in the heart of New Jersey and grew up in a household where athletics and academics were the top priority. At the age of 3 she had her lung removed due to a tumor covering 75% of the left lung. Her love for human anatomy and physiology was born from that moment. Through hard work and dedication, she was able to gain a scholarship to play at the NCAA level in basketball. However, 4 ACL reconstructions later in her right knee and no real basketball career left in sight, she was left to direct her energy into other pursuits. This carried her into graduate school under Dr. Andy Galpin and Dr. Irene Tobias studying Muscle Fiber Typing and Protein Signaling at California State University-Fullerton. Now, as a coach, mentor, and masters of muscle physiology, she helps athletes and fitness clients to meet their potential.For more information on Kara Kilian Lazauskas, you can follow her via the links below:Website: https://www.karakilian.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kilerk0/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kara.lazauskasThe D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.
