Episode 64 – Top Tips for Healthy Travel with ROAM Fitness

By | December 10th, 2017|Categories: Blog, Nutrition, Podcasts|0 Comments

Welcome back, Fitlandians! We’re excited to welcome Ty Manegold of Roam Fitness to the show today as part of our continuing journey of creating healthy holidays for all! Roam Fitness is a brand of post-security airport gyms that help to change that dreaded, stressful experience of traveling into a positive, refreshing one.



Ty says, “We believe travel days don’t mean compromising your health and we’re doing that by putting fully equipped gyms behind security for passengers to be able to stay fit while traveling.”

So, How Does It Work?

Roam Fitness currently has one location in the Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport and is working to expand across the country and globe. Ty explains that all future locations will resemble what they currently have at BWI offering a full gym with daily, monthly and yearly passes. Membership includes full access to the facility and a complementary clothing rental program through Lulu Lemon athletic wear and Brooks running shoes. If a member chooses to workout in their own clothes, the gym staff will vacuum seal your wears so it doesn’t co-mingle with their clean clothes. Roam Fitness really has everything covered!

As the holidays roll in we’re granted with an abundance of joys, more time off work, a shift in the seasons and time with family and friends. This for many of us, also includes an overload of comfort foods, sweet treats we’ve adored since childhood and social events surrounded by alcohol. Christa shares she’s been indulging in more alcohol than she’d like to with the stresses and celebrations surrounding the launch of her new book, Strategic Vitality: 11 Small Steps to a Big Transformation.


She explains coming off an amazing high after her book launch party which occurred last Saturday, excited that she could continue to share her story, her struggles and how she works on overcoming them. Christa has always been very open with her listeners about her love for wine and donuts, and is proud to bring more awareness about how common our reliance on sugar, refined carbs and alcohol truly is.

If you have a tendency to relay on booze, Christa challenges you this holiday season to take a break from the spirited beverages alongside of her and husband AJ, as they start a six month sober stretch starting January 1st. With a community backing you […]

So, What Is a Craving?

Physiologically, cravings typically come from the brain and the gut. The gut, often named the second brain, has similar nerves and hormones and is being linked more frequently with our craving cycles. There is good and bad bacteria in the gut and due to limited space, there is always competition for space. A poor diet enables […]

Episode 60 – Get Over the Fear of Jumping Into Keto with Leanne Vogel

We have an exciting show for you today as we help you get over the fear of jumping into the ketogenic diet with the Queen of Keto herself, Leanne Vogel!


Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.

Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting hormone replacement therapy she discovered it was stunting her training even more. She went to a naturopath begging for help and that’s where she was introduced to a ketogenic diet.

Desperate for a change, Leanne who was a vegan and whole-foods fanatic made it her mission to eat avocados, mayo and bacon for 30 days! She did it and found she could finally get off her ADHD medicine she had […]

*** Warning, I curse in this one. ***

I’m so proud of this episode where I am 100% open and vulnerable about my personal fitness journey. I’m not perfect. I’m not your guru, but gosh darn it if I don’t work my a** off to keep myself and YOU moving forward.

Listen to my real journey about my everyday struggles and how I keep moving forward with my own goals!


Welcome back to the Fitlandia Podcast! We are excited to share more of Christa’s fitness journey to motivate and inspire our wonderful listeners! As Christa shares with us about her vulnerability and everyday struggles, she demonstrates how she keeps moving forward towards her own goals despite criticism from friends and family, as well as the temptations of the upcoming holiday season.

Since launching her fitness company, Christa says she has received a lot of interesting criticism and judgment from people who have witnessed her health transformation. Although unintentional, many of her friends and family who have observed her healthier lifestyle shift seem to treat her differently now.

Have you ever been asked when going to a friend’s house or meeting up for lunch, “Oh, what are you not eating now?” or “What diet are […]
