Fit Womens Weekly Podcast
Don't Be Negative About Yourself - Dove Soap Ad - And Motivation

This is a fun episode of What The Fitness where we bring my hubby Dan back into the mix. In this episode we talk about how you view yourself and we look at it in two different lights. One from a perspective of being negative and how other women do not respond well to that... but then we also look at this from your own perspective. 

Recently there was a Dove Soap campaing that looked at beauty in a different light. It's a pretty good subject and relates very closely with exercise, nutrition, and the base reasons why you workout.

We also talk about how to get and stay motivated to push yourself. We've talked a lot about this in the past, but this is a little different because we talk about events and do you need some type of even to get yourself motivated. What about you?

Plus there is a lot more great stuff going on. Make sure you check out the blog where we consistently post up taining help like our recent 30 different types of plank exercises. This is a great directory to help you build better workouts.

I am beyond excited to share with you this interview I did with one of my boot campers, Kim Schofield. I call a lot of women amazing, and trust me they all are. Kim is a special bread of amazing. She's proof that you're capable of making radical lifestyle changes... getting fit and now only fit, but strong and powerful... and she's proof that it's a realization that can set you free. You'll see what I mean.

She was pretty big and not very healthy growing up. She always thought she was stuck in that body, but she soon had a realization that she was not stuck in that body. She had the power to change it and it was not permanent. I think you'll learn a lot about yourself here because you might be holding yourself back by a limiting belief.

Then you'll learn about how she got healthy and amazingily fit. If you could only see her workout, she would blow you away. What's really great is how her husband is part of her team. They got healthy together and continue this amazing journey together. It's shaped them for the better. 

I think you'll really enjoy this and learn a lot from it. Make sure you check out Lifting Revolution where you'll find the best posts daily to help you live healthier, have more fun in life, and be a happier - fitter woman.

First I want to say that this episode was recorded while I was on the Blend retreat in Park City Utah. I have lots of special guests on this episode... women that I am very blessed to call my friends now. However because of where we recorded and what I was able to bring with me, the audio is low at certain points. I'm sorry about that. I did the best I could.

You're also going to learn about getting started with exercise and making it part of your life. That's what really separates those women who are forever fit and healthy... they've made fitness and being healthy a centerpiece of their life.

This is a fun episode of What The Fitness with just Dan and I. During this conversation we talk about a bunch of different things like...

Why one of our clients, Sherry, is going to be a major weight loss and strength success story. She does something that most women are not willing to do, but it's a good example of what it means to want it really badly. I think you'll learn a lot from Sherry and how she is approaching her weight loss efforts. 

We also talk about why women find guys with guitars more attractive and the gym going guy the least attractive. Plus why verbal motivation is not as effective as you would think when it comes to exercise. However, there is more to this story than you know.

You've probably never heard of Jess, but she's an amazing woman. She is actually one of my boot campers here in Charleston. She's been a client for a very long time and more importantly, she's an incredible inspiration to women everywhere looking to not to just lose weight, but transform their bodies for strength too.

In this episode of What The Fitness, Jess shares how she lost over 25 pounds in just 12 weeks. She talks about training, tracking her nutrition, and making those daily decisions that really count. 

What's great about Jess is she's not like a celebrity who is paid big bucks to workout and look good. She does it because it's part of her lifestyle and that alone makes her feel strong and great about herself. Remember that!

This past episode was a longer one and crazy to boot. We talked about all sorts of great things and let the fitness and nutrition conversation go free. We talked about body image a lot including breast augmentation. My husband Dan had some views that are different so forgive him. Ha! 

One thing that was really important was talking about not eating enough food and how that can hamper your ability to lose inches and weight. This is a very common problem for women and fixing it can open the flood gates to better results.

I am so excited to bring you this episode of What The Fitness. I was blessed to interview and talk with Gabrielle Reece. Of course you know her as a star volleyball player, gorgeous model, and now amazing Mom and wife to Laird Hamilton.

She has so much to share that can help you with not only our fitness training, but your outlook on life, and going through the many changes. You'll learn what is was like for her to grow up on the Virgin Islands and then going to college. This is when she got serious into strength training and when it became a part of her life and so did volleyball. 

Then we talk about modeling and how you would expect that to change the way she trained. You'll have to see what she said about that. I think you'll be pretty shocked. 

Finally, now that she's a little older with three children and a great husband, has her training changed? You'll find out because in many way it has. Plus you're going to learn about her healthy living outlook now which I think you're really going to love. It's not nearly as strict as you might think and her reasons are great. Definitely something to live by and strive for!
