Description

Fitness is about caring for your health— and your health is mental, emotional, and spiritual as well as physical. We are done letting our efforts in fitness and nutrition be a detriment to our mental well-being. It is time to reclaim fitness as the powerful tool for your own self-empowerment that it was ALWAYS supposed to be.

Episode Date
The Day I Died
1902

Before evolving this podcast, holding space for inviting guests, and diving deeper into Redefining Fitness, I knew I needed to finally be open in sharing about the most integral, formative piece of my personal story: my exodus from the Mormon church,  and the complete identity loss that ensued. 

For years and years, even just to think of it, the pressure in my chest would build like an iron grip, squeezing my heart from deep inside of me— a daunting reminder of my ever-present anxiety and a long-forgotten fairytale reality.

Yet I now know, to become who I truly am, I had to fully let go of the woman I thought I was supposed to be.

I am no longer ashamed of the trauma I hold— I stand proud of the ways I chose to pick up the pieces and shape this new me.  

Words still feel inadequate— but I now know the power of speaking your truth vulnerably, however imperfectly.

I am still afraid— but I now make a cognizant choice to not let my fears control me.

And somehow I know, now is finally the time to share my truth, unapologetically.

It's an episode all about Self-Love. 
And if that makes you cringe-- PLEASE give me a chance, and give this a listen.

Hey friend. Here we go! 

In this opening episode, we dive right in to the real, raw, and vulnerable. I read a poem that I wrote about the beginning of my personal journey to redefining fitness, and hopefully provide context as to WHY I'm starting this pod, what my intention is, and what REDEFINING FITNESS is all about.  

To be honest? 
After years of "getting ready" to start, I just sat down and did the thing-- unscripted. Turns out it felt really good to just sit and speak from the heart. Thank you for listening. 

Dedicated to my Grammy Kresge, to whom I owe so much.
