If you like to workout and have ever spent anytime at the gym (or with Peleton) today’s episode is for you. Today I talk with my friend, Amy Connell about some “secrets” of the fitness industry. We talk about what it’s like to be an over-forty fitness instructor. She shares her story of a personal struggle with body image, and we talk about things you may not know about that person leading your group fitness class or personal training. Here are a few other topics we explore:
- Why women over 40 may need to work out differently than other women.
- What happens when we don’t give ourselves grace to age!
- Why Heather has never taught step aerobics.
- Why mobility is important.
- How to stop idolizing fitness professionals, and
- How you can make a difference for Christ at your gym!
I think you’ll glean a lot of wisdom from this fun conversation!
