In episode 71, Jill and Chris talk with Heike Yates, a fitness and nutrition expert who has helped women worldwide to stay fit for over 30 years.
Her passion is empowering women over 50 to say YES. I CAN. She helps them to take back their health and strength by showing them how fitness, nutrition, and mindset strategies combined create a winning team.
Heike has developed a reputation for creating real-life solutions and lasting results. She is the creator of Pursue Your Spark, the 4 Week Lean Out Program, and host of the Pursue Your Spark podcast. Heike is also a body builder, an Ultra Marathon runner and completed an Ironman Triathlon.
We talk about the five parts of her Pursue Your SPARK program. Each letter in SPARK stands for S=scan, P=plan, A=action, R=roadblocks, K=Kickass. We discuss the mental aspects of fitness along with nutrition and exercise. Heike talks about how to incorporate little changes into your week. She suggests that you start today. Seize the day by repeating a repeatable process and you’ll consistently get results.
