The Nick Fong PODCAST: Tips to balance your work, family and friends

You’ve arrived at The Nick Fong PODCAST, where Nick Fong and his guests share the latest about Cabo and all of Baja California Sur.  Nick is the founder and broker of Ronival Real Estate, the biggest and fastest-growing real estate firm in all of Baja Sur.  That means, Nick knows Baja Sur and his guests are in-the-know.

This week, Nick Fong joins Korey Riggs, the co-founder of the radio show Cabo Mil News.  As you’ll see, Korey is the person who introduced Nick to the benefits of the ice bath.  Now, get ready to learn how to balance your work, family, and friends with Nick Fong and Korey Riggs.

Friends and fellow expats in Cabo

As Nick sits down with Korey in person, he mentions that they do a monthly real estate update in Korey’s radio show, but using Zoom, not in person.  Although they see each other in the local coffee shop from time-to-time, Nick wanted Korey to meet with him on his PODCAST to discuss something specific – wellness.

Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Korey Riggs always wanted to learn how to speak Spanish, being just one-hour north of the border.  Of course, he didn’t actually learn Spanish until he was 27 years old.  In college, he needed to speak a second language to graduate, so that was his calling to finally learn Spanish.

On top of wanting to learn Spanish, Korey had the dream of working and living in Mexico.  Therefore, he moved there. Starting with Mexico City back in 2007, Korey lived there for two years until moving to Cabo where he set up shop.  As such, he’s been in Cabo for quite a while now.  For his day job, Kory helps run some community foundations in Cabo, which is what he began with in Mexico City.

During the PODCAST, Korey reveals the many foundations he’s been involved with.  One important foundation helps the children of Baja Sur.  Right now, the foundation is located in La Paz, with busses that run to and from there.  Amazingly, theses busses have been running throughout the pandemic without pause.

Wellness – preventative medical care

A Yoga instructor, Korey is into breathing exercises.  Now, he’s able to hold his breath for four-and-a-half minutes.  Since Nick can only hold his breath for three minutes, Korey is his breathing mentor.  As part of the breathing exercises, cold water, and with ice, is part of the practice.

In the video, Korey explains what they do with ice and water, sometimes in a barrel.  This is called “cold plunging.”  When you enter this cold water, it strengthens your ability to control your breathing and holding your breath.  Unbelievingly, Nick stays in the ice water for over 10 minutes.

To prepare an ice back without ice, Korey is driving to Arizona to buy an ice bath tub, which prepares cold water.  That way, he won’t have to get ice and pour it in every day for his exercise.  That leads to something Korey also discusses – compression.  This helps you recover after a workout and prevents heart problems.
