GRIT and HUSTLE: The Mindset of an Ultra Runner
About Jess Mullen, MS, RD, RRCA Certified Running Coach https://fitfirst.net/about-fit-first/ I’ll admit it. Like most people, I used to eat a lot of junk. At 20, I remember going for a 30-minute bike ride and promptly getting sick. It was a wake-up call–the first time I really thought about the importance of what I chose to put in my body.  After studying accounting and working as a corporate auditor, I had a realization: I wanted to do something that would help real people. I went back to school and got a Master’s degree in Nutritional Science from Bastyr University, which combined a focus on whole foods with solid research. Since then, I’ve broadened my knowledge even further. As an inpatient dietitian at Stevens Hospital, I gained considerable experience with major medical issues, like diabetes and diverticulitis. Now, in private practice nutrition and as a fitness trainer and running coach, I work with people who have a wide range of abilities, needs and goals. As a long-distance runner, I have had years of experience experimenting with what works and what doesn’t. I have learned how to maximize my ability to burn fat and minimize stomach distress during long events. This has enhanced my my ability as a professional to support my clients improve body composition, health, energy levels and performance. I’ve tried lots of diet approaches myself, so I understand what it’s like. I continue to read as much as possible and keep an open mind. Overall, my philosophy is to build from the positive.  What I really love most is helping active people figure out what works for them, and what they can sustain. I truly believe you can feel better, look better and perform better, even as you age.

The Stress Hormone: Cortisol
by Jess Mullen, MS, RD, RRCA Certified Running Coach Cortisol, a glucocorticoid (steroid hormone), is produced from cholesterol in the two adrenal glands located on top of each kidney. It is normally released in response to events and circumstances such as waking up in the morning, exercising, and acute stress. Through a combination of nerve and hormonal signals, this system prompts your adrenal glands, located atop your kidneys, to release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, enhances your brain's use of glucose and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues. Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation. It alters immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system, the reproductive system and growth processes. This complex natural alarm system also communicates with the brain regions that control mood, motivation and fear. The body's stress-response system is usually self-limiting. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities. But when stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.  The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of many health problems, including: Anxiety, Depression, Digestive problems, Headaches, Heart disease, Sleep problems, Weight gain, Memory and concentration impairment...

Rapid Fire Two Minute Drill: “The Silent Assassin”
TIFFANY KELLEY, FH COACH and Former College and Pro Athlete My absolute favorite thing about being a coach is giving people the gift of empowerment and confidence. I am a true believer that physical strength transfers into mental and emotional strength and gives us the ability to tackle anything that life throws at us.  I want everyone; no matter their background, circumstances, or current fitness level, to feel comfortable and welcome stepping into the gym. I went to Northern Michigan University where I got my Bachelor's in Exercise Science, played basketball, and threw shot put, discus, and javelin.  After college I played one year of professional basketball in Germany and since then my love for fitness and performance has led me to work at a various schools and gyms.  I have gained knowledge and experience as a Sports Performance Coach, Basketball Coach, Track Coach, Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Rehab Assistant, Personal Trainer, and Gym Owner. I have also received a Master's in Exercise Science and take great pride in being a life-long student. Throughout my life, I have had so many amazing coaches and mentors that have positively impacted me and taught me powerful lessons.  They have left such a strong impact that it has given me a desire to be a coach and mentor myself and give back.  My mission is to inspire, empower, and change people's lives! I currently live in West Seattle with my wife Julie, dog Charlie, and cat Cooper. I love cooking (especially breakfast), traveling, hiking, doing pull ups, and juggling kettlebells.  Resources Mentioned In This Show: Follow Coach Tiff on Instagram Follow Strength and Sand Retreats on Instagram Coach Tiff's Website FUELhouse Gym Website FUELhouse on Instagram SokolStrong on Instagram Athletic Greens Join the FH Community Friend us on Facebook: FUELhousegym Thanks for Listening!

Rapid Fire Two Minute Drill: “The Unicorn”, Coach Kiel Rasp
ABOUT KIEL Kiel (pro tip: it's pronounced like "KYLE!") was born and raised in Seattle. He got into fitness when he played football and did track and field at the University of Washington. He quickly saw how proper strength training excelled his performance on the field. After college, Kiel ran a couple marathons before he became a personal trainer. He has been training clients 1 on 1 and doing group classes for the last 3 years and is currently completing his Fire Academy training outside of Coaching. Kiel played Australian Rules Football for the US National Team. Ask him about "footy" - he beams just talking about it. Kiel loves training people because it really excites him to see someone push past their perceived physical limits. He believes that the aspects of physical exercises carries over to other parts of your life. If you can push yourself in the gym then you'll be able to push yourself outside of the gym. Kiel loves to move his body as much as possible and he firmly believe that the more we move now, the more we will be able to move later on in life!

WTF is happening to my Hormones?
If you are a female and over 40 and have been struggling for awhile with your health and really unsure of where to go, having an open line of communication with a cohesive plan is the best way to make sure you find the solutions you are looking for. No hormone works in isolation. They are like a symphony of instruments that work together to produce a beautiful harmony. It can also sound terrible if an instrument is out of tune.  Starting with a hormone reset might just be the answer to finding harmony. About Jess Mullen, MS, RD, RRCA Certified Running Coach I’ll admit it. Like most people, I used to eat a lot of junk. At 20, I remember going for a 30-minute bike ride and promptly getting sick.

We just skim the surface in understanding what it means to be female and over 40.  Let's start with 4 key Hormones and how we can make change today!
