    What is Health? With Renee McGregor

    What is Health? With Renee McGregor

    What does health actually mean? On today’s episode, Alice speaks to leading sports dietitian, Renee McGregor, about the misleading and damaging narratives the online fitness and health community perpetuates. Together Alice and Renee chat about how multifaceted our approach to health should be; whether that’s what we’re eating, how much we’re moving, how many positive relationships we’re nurturing and the lifestyles we lead in our daily lives - each of these pillars contribute to a holistic indicator of our health. With a firm emphasis on individualised nutrition, this episode touches on a movement away from ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods, towards looking at health as a standard we create for ourselves in all aspects of our lives.

    Aicha McKenzie came to managing talent and teaching breath-work in a unique way. As a former child British Commonwealth Rhythmic Gymnast, Aicha learnt early on in her career that the sports industry is high pressured.

Whether that’s encouraging an open dialogue on mental health with the people she works with, or to what she’s known most lately for - the use of breath work for greater wellbeing.
