Movement is a Lifestyle Features 1:20




Moving2Live is a podcast about movement and exercise for professionals and aficionados.  We also have Movement is a Lifestyle Features. Each week, we publish a brief highlight of a 2- or 4-legged mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: Ben Reuter

Where do you consider “Home”? Home is what you make of it/where your safe place is. Currently ChezR, which is located in the Pittsburgh area

What are your three favorite movement activities? Hiking/trail running with my labradors, mtn biking and gravel biking/fire road riding

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I don’t know if it is the best, but one of the best was a few days in Salida, Colorado to visit a friend/mentor and his wife. We averaged 4-5 hours of movement a day. Probably the highlight was being able to summit my first 14er – Mt. Shavano. The most memorable vacation, or a combination of work as the medical director and “play” – for a number of years I was fortunate enough to go on the Georgia Games Torch Run- 7+ days of running and biking throughout the state of Georgia promoting the Georgia Games- best memory was drafting behind a police car going up over the bridge to Saint Simons Island on a Friday rush-hour when the sheriff closed down one entire lane of traffic 🙂 thumbs up

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-work out – espresso. Post-workout: ice cold water and something salty if the workout was long

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Pizza; espresso; very, very good quality bread

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? Pittsburgh to DC on the Rails-to-Trails in 3 to 4 days and San Juan hut tour in Colorado

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Fear…of what other people will think of them or that people will judge them.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Probably the first time I went white water rafting. It was the first time I realized that there was something bigger than me that was in control (i.e., the water)

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Sleep

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) There is a spot in Mingo Creek Park in Washington County, Pennsylvania that has a section of trails through a group of maple trees… It is absolutely phenomenal in the fall – almost as good as an Aspen Grove in Colorado

Repost- Dr Ian Dunican, PhD- Sleep4Performance & Melius Consulting, part 2



Moving2Live originally released this interview on January 30, 2019.  If you missed Part 1 of our interview with Dr. Dunican, here’s the link: http://www.moving2live.com/2019/01/16/podcast-319-dr-ian-dunican-phd-sleep4perdformance-melius-consulting/

Dr. Ian C. Dunican, PhD (in his own words):
I have over 20 years international professional experience in health, safety and improvement within military, mining, rail, oil and gas, and other utilities. Combining scientific research and operational leadership, I support organisations in reducing risk, lowering cost and optimising productivity and performance. I have applied Lean/Six Sigma and other scientific methodologies in significant projects to drive step-change improvement in performance, whilst ensuring sustainability through associated culture change. In the mining, oil and gas sectors, I have worked internationally as an advisor to major companies including BHP, Anglo Gold Ashanti, South 32, Karara Mining, Peabody and Goldcorp. I have been responsible for the development of global practices, integration and project management across multiple product groups. This has entailed the quantification, analysis and interpretation of multiple data streams to support health, safety, financial strength and productivity. 

Currently I am the Director of Melius Consulting/Sleep4Performance. I received a PhD from the University of Western Australia (UWA) working with elite athletes and sporting organisations to optimise performance. I am a highly sought researcher, having worked with Olympic and elite athletes at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and West Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS), and with professional teams in Super Rugby, Basketball, Australian Rules Football (AFL) and martial arts (judo, boxing, grappling). A regular speaker/chair at universities and international conferences in mining, transport, sports performance and physiology, I regularly contribute articles to media outlets such as the Australian Financial Review, The Australian, Men’s Fitness, Blitz Martial Arts, BJJ Scout and Huffington Post. I have spoken on the Health Report on ABC radio in Australia, ABC radio national and numerous podcasts. Also I have appeared on ABC television, Channel 7, 9 and 10 in Australia, and was a TEDx Perth speaker in 2017. 

I am author and co-author of numerous technical reports, scientific articles and industry guidelines, and I am a regular reviewer for scientific peer reviewed journals. I host Sleep4Performance Radio, a podcast dedicated to education, knowledge sharing and promotion of the value of managing sleep. Through my website www.sleep4performance.com.au, I provide blogs, resources and research on all aspects of sleep, recovery and performance. An active sportsman, I have completed over 20 ultramarathons to date including the Ultra Trail Australia 100km (7 times), Leadville 100 miler, numerous marathons and trail running events. I hold a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and enjoy cross training with bodyweight exercises and Kettlebells. My current focus is improving my swimming in order to undertake long distance open water swimming events.
