Right off the bat Nick and Hayden talk about one of their shared interests, Tony Robbins, who Hayden had just seen live in a seminar that he vowed made him a better person for his family and clients. Both Nick and Hayden encouraged people to check out the Netflix documentary on Tony Robbins called “I’m Not Your Guru.”

Hayden, who is a former pharmacist, said he quickly found out that he was just managing symptoms, not curing causes, so he went searching for a better way. His search led him to holistic/eastern medicines, which he calls “traditional” medicine as opposed to “alternative” medicine. He created and set up the Essential Balance Holistic Wellness Center to have the best practitioners across multiple traditional medicine modalities (hypnotherapy, chiropractic, massage, yoga, acupuncture, etc) in one place.

Hypnotherapy, which is Hayden’s area of expertise, is used to help tap into the unconscious to change a belief that may be causing a negative health impact (smoking, eating disorders, depression, etc). In the most basic summary, hypnotherapy is no more than intense guided meditation. It helps people get over plateaus and blockages by focusing on changing insidious habits that bypass what you consciously know and think and tap into what you believe and feel unconsciously!

One of the groups Hayden treats is service men and women who suffer from PTSD. He describes how he uses primarily conversational hypnotherapy, though he does also specialize in the more well know “trance” methods.

Towards the end of the interview Hayden shared his belief that if you want to change your life you have to change your mindset by changing your physiology, your focus and your language. Be sure to listen to the whole interview for more!

Addicted to Fitness Show Notes – Adicto a la aptitud de Mexico

Not only is this the 40th episode of Addicted to Fitness, it is the FIRST international episode of the podcast, which you may have already known if you are fluent in Spanish or curious enough to put the episode’s title into a translator on google. Shannon and I decided our trip to Mexico to attend a friend’s wedding would be an ideal environment to record a podcast. Picturesque scenery, relaxing ocean waves and all inclusive access to resort amenities both healthy and not so healthy.

Shannon and I have been running and gunning since the start of the year and this weekend gave us the opportunity to recharge our batteries. Finding moments of temporary stress relief are important to both your physical and mental health. Another practice that can be beneficial to your health is a 30 day challenge. Whether it be 30 days of progressive pushup repetitions or 30 days without dairy, these periodic challenges can help you develop sustainable healthy habits.  I love doing 30 day challenges, and you’ll hear in this episode that I celebrated the completion of 30+ days without alcohol while on the trip. I did celebrate the completion of my challenge with a drink or two, but I quickly discovered why I started the challenge in the first place. Shannon and I may have made some naughty dietary choices while on our short vacay, but we did participate in an activity that was extremely beneficial to our health.

If you’re an avid listener of the podcast, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention that I’m a big fan of massage. Well apparently Shannon heard me because she scheduled a surprise couples massage at the resort spa during our stay. Therapeutic massage is not only relaxing it can help you move more efficiently. “Tight” muscles can be painful and can create improper movement patterns that could lead to injury. If you know a qualified massage therapist and can afford regular treatments, I’d recommend doing it. Much like this trip, I think it would be money well spent.

We hope you guys enjoy this week’s international episode. If you do, please let us know by giving us a rating and review in iTunes.
