Did you know that there is a connection between your feet, your core and your glutes? If you want a strong core and strong glutes, you should consider strengthening your feet. That’s right, your feet!
In this episode of my Six Weeks To fitness podcast, I am joined by Dr Emily Splichal, a Functional Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist. She is the Founder of EBFA Global, Creator of the Barefoot Training Specialist® Certification, Author of Barefoot Strong and CEO/Founder of Naboso Technology, a company that delivers innovative textured insoles and mats that help increase foot strength and health by increasing sensory stimulation in your feet. With over 20 years in the fitness industry, Dr Splichal has dedicated her medical career towards studying postural alignment and human movement as it relates to barefoot science, foot to core integration and sensory integration. During the interview, Dr. Emily will discuss the most common injuries she has to deal with as a podiatrist and how to prevent and treat them. She will also discuss the importance of foot awareness, the benefits of barefoot training and how strengthening your feet can tighten the core and gluteal muscles. This is a must-watch interview for anyone with foot, core or glute issues.
I learned so much in this interview about the importance of our feet, and thanks to Dr. Splichal, I am now walking around my home barefoot for at least 30 minutes per day, and it feels great!

In this episode of my Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Jorge Blamo, an actor and former collegiate baseball star. Jorge always loved acting and sports but chose to play baseball in high school and college, but as fate would have it, a groin injury sidelined him from playing during his sophomore year of college. Depressed while recovering from his injury, Jorge switched gears and returned to his other ‘first’ love — acting.
After college, Jorge pursued acting full-time. His credits include "Bull" on CBS and Hulu’s "Wu-Tang: An American Saga," among others. Jorge has done commercials for Rémy Martin alongside singer, songwriter Usher, Sling TV, Audi, Bose, and Under Armour. He is also slated to appear in two upcoming movies, including "With Myself."
During the interview Jorge discusses his Ghanian/Portuguese roots; the influence his mother and father had on his life growing up and the significant role faith, fitness and a positive mental mindset play in helping him to pursue his dreams as a professional actor. When I asked Jorge how he deals with rejection when it comes to landing roles in Hollywood, he stated that “for every thousand no’s there is one yes. It’s the same in baseball, you don’t bat one thousand, but you keep swinging.”
It was a real pleasure interviewing this young, positive and inspiring, purpose-driven rising star. Remember the name Jorge Blamo, you will be seeing his name all over the big screen one day soon.
