What Memorial Day Means To Us

This week’s episode contains both fun and serious facts about the Memorial Day holiday. Also, Shannon and I dive into how to eat healthy at summer pool parties/cookouts, next week’s interview with a well known fitness & health professional and the iTunes debut of the ETT Wrap Show. If you like the podcast, please share it with a friend. Help us get the good word of health & fitness out to as many people as possible. Preesh!

Even though the Memorial Day holiday will have past when this episode debuts, we at ETT want to thank the men and women of the armed forces, especially those that have given their lives, to ensure our freedom. Thank you.

ETT Wrap Show Ep.18

This week’s episode features an interview with published author and MMA gym owner, Dr. L.A. Jennings. L.A. was kind enough to speak with me about her book (She’s A Knockout! A History of Women in Fighting Sports),  Cris “Cyborg” Justino and how the image of women in the ring and in the gym has evolved. In addition to the interview, Shannon and I talk about jiu-jitsu training, aerial yoga and influential figures in the field of health & fitness. This ETT Wrap Show is jam packed with content. Please let us know what you think of any or all of it by leaving a comment below. THANKS PEEPS!

We Finally Got Our Swag

Just want to clarify that when I say swag, I’m not talking about swagger. We’ve had that for a while. I’m referring to the first incarnation of the ETT workout shirt. I want to send a big thank you out to my cousin Tyler for the shirt design and CustomInk for getting us the shirts before last weekend’s Mud Endeavor. I only got a small order this time around but I plan on ordering more. Would you rock an ETT shirt? What style shirt do you prefer to workout in (tank, sleeveless, etc.)?

ETT Wrap Show Ep.17

This week’s episode features a recap of ETT’s first team competition, the Mud Endeavor 5k. I discuss the highlights, and a few lowlights, from the race including how I averted severely injuring myself. In addition to the recap, Shannon and I discuss sleep supplements, The Biggest Loser TV show and why the quality of your calories is more important than the quantity of your calories. Also, just so you’re not caught off guard, Shannon and I spout out a few risqué words in this episode. What can I say? We get emotional sometimes.

If you have a fitness and/or health question you’d like us to address on a future episode of the ETT Wrap Show, please leave a comment below or email us at elementaltampa@gmail.com.

ETT Wrap Show Ep.16

We’ve got Shannon & I’s wedding/honeymoon recap on this week’s ETT Wrap Show (last time you’ll hear wedding talk, promise). You will hear the newest Mr. & Mrs. Burch discuss biking around Key West, ETT’s achievement day and the upcoming mudrun. Also, I finally convince Shannon to try cricket flour protein bars. Her reaction might surprise you. If you like this week’s episode, please let us know AND share it with a friend. We love the support!

ETT Wrap Show Ep.15

Sorry for the delay of this episode but as you will hear, I’ve been a little busy as of late. Tune into this week’s ETT Wrap Show to hear a very special pre-wedding episode. I sit down with my longtime friend & groomsmen Steve Carlton and we discuss our wedding day workout, stress associated with the big day and how married couples help each other stay in shape. Please rate, review and leave your own marriage advice or questions for us to answer on a future episode. All feedback is welcome and appreciated.
