Women Who Fight supports female fighters, collecting specialist advice and sharing current research from the experts. We are passionate about creating a space where women can find answers in a supportive and safe environment, promoting equality in the gym, on screen, in research and in prizes, as well as sinking our teeth into the best ways to optimise our health and training. We believe that our training should work with our unique and dynamic bodies, building on our strengths to help us grow and evolve in our field. In a male dominated sport, women need to support each other as we develop within it, and Women Who Fight aims to bring knowledge to the people who need it.

    #47 Research on female Judokas

    #47 Research on female Judokas

    In this episode, we are talking to Nicole Strock, breaking down a scientific study about female Judokas and their wellbeing called: Eating Attitudes, Body Esteem, Perfectionism and Anxiety of Judo Athletes and Nonathletes.


    Scientific journals can be so hard to decipher for the layman, and with Nicole we were able to break down and understand what this paper was telling us. This is the first of three we have planned. Thank you to Nicole for sharing her knowledge.

    #46 WILD.AI: The app for female athletes

    Helene is the founder of WILD.AI, an app to track women’s menstrual cycle and build a nutrition, rest and recovery programme around your physiological needs. It makes adjustments to its recommendations as you input your data, helping you to see patterns and mitigate symptoms. It supports menstruating women and those on birth control, as well as peri and post menopausal women. It is still in its infancy (relatively speaking) and Helene has big plans for it.

Great Content, Better Hosts

Love this podcast.
The hosts are both personally, and intellectually, astute, and are building a solid knowledge base for how women should both compete, and train, in their chosen sports, and how to manage their mind as well as their bodies.
Always look forward to new releases!
