Hey, Fit Radio Fam! It’s your coach Keisy Myumi, and for those of you who have not tuned into any of the Fit Radio workouts, my name is Keisy, and I am a certified master trainer and unconventional strength specialist. I have been an Active Isolated Stretch Practitioner for 3 years and I make it my business to be an advocate for consistent stretching.

Hey Fit Radio Fam! We’re sisters, Lauren and Kelly of SISSFiT. We grew up in Orange County, California and have played sports our entire lives. We ran Division 1 Track and Field together at UC Irvine and upon graduating realized that we were not ready to give up our love for fitness! Though we chose different career paths, we were constantly exchanging workouts with one another and when possible, meeting up for a little healthy competition and accountability! We became the “go-to’s” in our friend circles for workouts and training and figured it was time to get certified and begin building something we were truly passionate about!

I’ll be honest: I’m not someone who revels in the challenge of cooking a complicated meal. And to me, complicated means running around between different pots and pans on the stove. Nothing’s ever done at the same time, and it’s just not my idea of a relaxing evening in the kitchen. And let’s not even start on the pile of dishes. Enter one-pot and one-pan dinners.
