It's a Long-form episode to round out the last 10 before I take a summer break and prepare for an interview series to launch in the fall. We're talking about the shelf-life of a fitness pro, body changes, the leap from self-criticism to self-love and the real-talk behind it all. 

Content Warning: Body Image, Disordered Eating, Aging, Body Ideals are all discussed in this episode.  In addition, I share a story about a rabbit being attacked by my dog.  If this content feels like it won't serve you're well being, please skip this episode.

In this episode, we discuss the concept of "role incredulity," which is defined in the following way: 

Role incredulity is a form of gender bias where women are mistakenly assumed to be in a support or stereotypically female role — a secretary, assistant, or nurse — rather than a leadership or stereotypically male role, such as CEO, lawyer, or doctor. Harvard Business Review

This topic is so important in the age of GURU-ISM and especially in the fitness/wellness realm.  It will challenge you to investigate some of the ways you are celebrating the masters without investigating if their actions truly align with your values. 

It's definitely an episode that will stoke your progressive fire!

TW - This episode is an emotional deep dive and covers the topics of body dismorphia, disordered eating, alcoholism, abusive teaching/coaching techniques, and infertility.  If you are in a space where listening to these stories would be triggering, please skip this episode.  

For those who listen, my deepest gratitude. I hope we can all learn from these shares and start the important conversations that are LONG overdue.

We're diving deep into the concept of Broken Wing Syndrome and how it applies to our client relationships, teacher training relationships and even the industry at large.  This one is juicy! (and there's a little singing too)

Broken Wing Syndrome (“BWS”) refers to non-resilient individuals, and specifically to those working in a family business, where their weaknesses (broken wings) attract well-meaning support from parents and other family members, in ways that are inappropriate, and ultimately unhelpful, to the family and the business. - Family Business United

The persistent need to help those who are damaged and broken, whether they ask for help or not. Also, the undeniable attraction that those who are damaged and broke have towards you. - Imperfectly Edie Blog

In this week's episode, we talk about the condition of "Adult Disappointment" and how, when we are disappointed with a human who was supposed to be there to help us, we are allowed to feel grateful for the learning we received and also....disappointed in the ways they chose to behave.  Listen in for some relateable stories, train breathing 😂  and tips to move forward.

Professional progress in the world of teaching movement is about choosing the right "bricks" to provide a strong foundation as well as a structure worth building upon.  In this episode, we break down some of the myths about professional pathways and use a whole bunch of brick metaphors to get there.

I'm diving deep into expanding the perspective surrounding the moments where we feel like we have no idea what we are doing.  We'll look at this spiral moment of self-doubt, fear and critique and discuss strategies to help navigate through it. 

We're also introducing a new feature for the new year - Red Lights and Green Lights.  (yes - this is borrowed from the popcast - I love this show and love the concept.  We're looking at it from a movement perspective)
