Still a Chance for you to Win a FitBit Flex. Bill Kociaba of Kociaba Fitness Joins the Team in the Gym for this Empowering Episode
We ease into this episode with Jessica still in a relaxed state following her visit to R.E.S.T. Float Solutions. Before proceeding with these show notes, I really want to thank PUSH Beverages for keeping our team hydrated with Push 2.0 Water. It’s available at deep discount to blind operators of Randolph-Sheppard in 40 states.
In the News: How much does it really take to burn off a big mac? An online fast-food calculator reveals just how much activity is needed to be guilt-free. Next, there is still time to register for BLAST! Kevan makes note of the fact that the President of the National Federation of the Blind will be in attendance at BLAST. The WE Fit Wellness™ team is set to announce their 2016 Try It and NF-Be Healthy programs at the NFB National Convention, to take place at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, FL this June 30th. The United States Association of Blind Athletes’ rowing camp application deadline is April 15th. And lastly, people with disabilities can find numerous exercise options locally; the idea is to get moving.

Bill Kociaba with Real World Fitness joins the team to talk about a forty-year career as a gym owner, trainer, podcaster and enthusiast. A blind powerlifter, Kociaba actually has some fun leading Kevan and Jessica through a few simple exercises. Kevan has trouble standing on one foot, urges people to read the kernel book story by Dr. Kenneth Jernigan, “Standing on One Foot”. Bill is the only blind, certified kettlebell trainer in the world. Bill speaks about the impact he’s making on the lives of blind and visually impaired students at the Lighthouse of Broward County.
In Fit Chat, Kevin Kovacs, the Genius, producer of the program, tells us the type and duration of exercises he would have to do to burn off the calories he consumed at lunch. Kevan and Jessica discuss tips and tricks for eating on the run.
