    Love that he was focused on centering himself through worship music<3
    My favorite way to stay fit is constantly changing. Some weeks I focus on running, then change it up to work out videos in my living room, and other times in the back yard trying to tone muscles. We homeschool and my husband is military. Those 2 things mean that our schedule is always changing so I try to stay consistent in working out someway, but flexible in how or when I can work out.

    Favorite way to stay fit and active is thru the great outdoors. For me, taking a quick 5 mile hike in the mountains is a perfect opportunity to be surrounded by God’s beauty and take quiet time for prayer. I start the hike with a Nitro and a drop of peppermint and end with a little Panaway on my knees.

    We usually try and stay active and fit as a family. Whether its swimming, going to the beach, a bike ride or just a walk somewhere. My husband uses the gym at his work daily, he has also surfed most of his life. My kids dance, play volleyball and wrestle! So we are active as much as we can! Healthier choices for eating is always important. We make sure to incorporate as many fruits and vegetables as well into most of our meals!

    I try to get some form of exercise daily. I am starting to life light weights and hopefully will go on to heavier weights for my bone density. Having the essential oils makes it easier to be able to exercise because of the relief I get from using them after exercising.

  • Lina August 18, 2016 - 8:06 am Reply

    The best way for me to stay fit and active is to be active and eat healthy food. Make it as a daily routine: in the morning drink a smoothie (with a drop of essential oil) then walk few miles to the shop or some other places (instead going with the car) and in the evening ride a bike. I always find what to clean, wash, tidy and etc. at home. For example cleaning windows is a great work out for hands. Make it simple but special.

I get a massage weekly to keep my muscles stretched properly. I walk every morning. I am very proud of the changes I have made to take care of this 54 year old body !!!!

    Very inspiring story. So many youth (and adults!) would benefit from hearing his story. I’ve not exactly been active and fit lately but have recently hit the reset button and am trying hard to make the change. Deep Relief has been helpful in getting some relief after working out. And water, lots of water… the Vitality line is helping me drink more, love me some Citrus Fresh in my water 🙂

    I stay active and fit by first and always taking a morning stretch..then I have my pure protien and start my crazy busy day..

    The inspiration I received from listening to Bryan on this episode of YL Podcast is that there will always be something that interferes with your goal. You must always push through the challenges, and to expect and accept the challenges because there will always be something that could give you an excuse to quit!

    I started my fitness last year after YL Convention in Texas. I heard Oliver Wenker speak and he said we could do a lot to improve our health by walking 30 min a day. Since then I’ve joined a Gym where I’ve taken Women On Weight class, Cross Training, HIIT, and also joined a softball team. I’ve never been into fitness or sports but its been life changing for me. I love being part of the fitness community, it’s amazing how people can come along side you and encourage or hold you accountable and vice versa. I wouldn’t have thought about this aspect of having a healthy life style before but I’m so glad I’m part of a company that inspires us to be a better us. I love that he’s an overcomer! My son used this when I started talking about running. Do or Do Not, there is no Try. lol He’s 11 and an YODA fan.

    I operate a small natural foods market and a new Young Living business. I maintain a very healthy diet, diffuse oils daily in the store and stay active 12+ hours a day performing all aspects of the business. The next plan is to add NingXia Red to my daily routine. I really miss beach volleyball which is not available where I now live. But, when I retire it will be back in the picture with my Young Living oils.

  • Anne Kinard August 19, 2016 - 3:03 am Reply

    To hear from a gold medalist that each period in life needs inspiration from someone new helped me understand my own journey in a new way. I have found several mentors in two careers and will keep an eye out for more. It’s important also that we are available to mentor others! Look forward to using before, during, and after exercise, especially Ningxia Red and Deep Relief!

  • Donna Scott August 19, 2016 - 3:05 am Reply

    My favorite form of fitness is Bikram Yoga or possibly walking outside in a park or something. I love the OOLA Fitness when I need that extra boost to get off my couch and out the door. The different citrus vitality oils in my water help keep me hydrated without getting bored with drinking water. I am always amazed how those who actually make it to the games spend hours and hour every day working toward that goal. Training is their job and people don’t realize how much it takes to get to that point. My hat is off to you!

  • Leah Jervis August 19, 2016 - 3:47 am Reply

    I like to keep my routine simple. I walk each day with my kids. The littlest in the stroller, the others sometimes on bikes or roller blades. It’s family fitness and we head out in the morning after we take our Ningxia Red shots. I also like a couple drops of lemon and a single drop of peppermint in my water bottle. Perfect for these warm summer days.

    Congrats to Bryan on his success as a decathlete. I definitely can’t do all of that, but do try to stay active. I’m up early 3-5 days a week heading to the fitness center by 3:30am. I put on EnRGee to help me get going with my strength and cardio routines. When I overdo it, Cool Azul Sports Gel is my go-to rubdown. After I shower, I put Thieves on the soles of my feet. My all-day fragrance is Frankincense.

I was touched that Brian shared how he grounded and centered himself to receive inspiration that he was seeking to perform his best…his best seemed to be for a higher cause than himself. He shares the power of living with a purpose. I love and appreciate the Young Living Essential Oils and how they can enhance virtually every aspect of my life. Thank you Bryan and thank you YL.

    One of the things I enjoyed in this episode was that Bryan shared how worship music inspired him and helped him as he trained. It also inspires me as I work out at the gym doing cardio and lifting weights. I love my workouts when I can spend a couple of hours training but on most days it is a quick hour over my lunch break. I have been trying to order the Cool Azul Sports Cream but it is “out of stock”. 🙁 I could really use it today. Those lower body squats and dead lifts yesterday are in my memory today…soreness but in a good way!

    I love how he would center himself with worship. Also how he found great meaning in his life with Young Living. It really is modern medicine.

    I love to stay active by running. I also have been enjoying watching an American win the gold in decathalon, again!

    I go to the Y every morning before work. I use some combination of lemon, grapefruit, and peppermint in my metal water bottle. Then I use peppermint on my tongue and Thieves under my nose to offsetst the chlorine and other chemical smells. I shower with Morning Start and shampoo with Copaiba/Vanilla shampoo and conditioner and use AromaGuard under my arms. Then clove, thyme, or Thieves on my feet with one of three YL lotions before putting socks/clothes on.

    I love kayaking to stay active and fit. I always take along my deep relief but would love to get the kit to take with me 🙂

    My son loves the sports gel but I love the bag! I can put the iTOVi in the little pocket for the roller balls, the cords in where the sports gel was – along with some business cards and a nice sampling of oils. My phone fits into the outside pocket. Perfect! 😉

  • Emily Havener August 22, 2016 - 3:21 pm Reply

    My favorite ways to stay fit are stretching in the mornings with coffee or tea and taking walks with my 4 year old and puppy dog, natural gravity weight training and doing chair exercises with my sweet 90 yr old Grandmother with Dementia.. but she seems to not have it around me so much! <3

  • Mandara Tenner August 22, 2016 - 4:12 pm Reply

    What a true inspiration he and other athletes are! I stay active by taking my fur kids for walks, gardening, going to the gym and incorporating small things like taking the stairs and parking a bit further out when I go shopping! YL oils are definitely part of my everyday routine.. I absolutely love deep relief, panaway, and cool Azul! I also utilize cool Azul oil on my athlete clients and started having my massage therapist use the oils on me as well!

    Thanks Bryan for sharing your journey! So encouraging and inspiring to know how you get focused and motivated before a competition and I love that Young Living helped you find purpose after your athletic career. I love using my oils for yoga! The active and fit kit sounds like a perfect addition to my oil collection. Thanks for all the wisdom 🙂

  • Loretta May Nerswick August 22, 2016 - 7:54 pm Reply

    TY very much I appreciate this. I need to work out more and time is my# one factor to not making it to the gym. Focus is what I need.

    Always providing positively great information.

    I really enjoyed Bryan’s honesty, especially when he mentioned how he looked at his hero’s . At first, how they looked like in the spot light but as he matured, how they looked like out of the spot light. As leaders in Young Living, we also need to be transparent and consistent. We need to be the same honest person in our teams as well as in our homes. He inspired me to keep working on my physical conditioning, especially since I have just lost 40 lbs on Slique essence oil. I praise God for Young Living and how it has blessed my life and the lives around me.

    I am certainly not as active and fit as I could be, but between working at a full time, and working hard at my Young Living business, I certainly stay very busy.
    I really appreciate how honest Bryan is when he answered questions during the interview. I imagine he is a great mentor to young people. I would love to win an Active and Fit kit, so that I could share it when I am giving Young Living classes or 1 on 1’s.

    This is such a awesome kit, perfect for an active lifestyle!
