We are Busy Body, a podcast about … being alive and having a body. Really — every episode, we’ll be discussing one basic everyday action (like walking, breathing, sleeping) and how it fits into the bigger picture of functional fitness. This is a podcast for people with lives, jobs, families, and hobbies that don’t revolve around the gym, but who still want to find balance in their busy bodies. Come think about health and wellness in a new way with two women who hate fads and love pasta. Brought to you by Brooklyn Strength, a Pilates and Wellness studio in New York City.
How to Work Out
It's the season finale, can you believe it? We’re wrapping up with a big talk on what it really means to “work out.” Cadence teaches us how to do a proper plank and, at long last, goes off on the barre fad. Plus jello shots and dog snores. But the big cliffhanger is: Who will sponsor us next season? A sneaker company? A candle company? Caftans? Meat sticks? The monarchy? Stay tuned.
How to Breathe
This week we’re talking about the importance of breathing. For energy and movement. For rest and relaxation. For doing a really good Elizabeth Holmes impression. Plus: Kegels? Kegels!
How to Walk
Walking! It’s more complicated than it looks! And we have a lot to say about it. Come for Cadence calling BS on the “10,000 steps” myth, stay for our increasingly desperate pleas for a prominent shoe sponsorship. This episode also features our favorite subject (British royalty).
How to Sleep
Basically everyone is tired constantly. Instead of getting those eight hours of sleep, we scroll through Instagram or watch Scandinavian crime dramas until our eyes finally give out on us. In this episode, two night owls talk through the sleep struggle and what it does to our busy bodies.
How to Eat
This is not a podcast about dieting. Repeat: NOT a podcast about dieting. But we are talking about the relationship between eating and working out: food as energy and fuel. It’s complicated! Ergo, Cadence and Jess get into a vicious argument over a meat stick snack. Also: Does anyone actually know what “inflammation” means?
Real Fit Becomes Busy Body: How To Sit
It's our first episode! We are Busy Body (formerly known as the Real Fit podcast). Cadence and Jess share a little about their backgrounds before getting into this week’s topic: Sitting. Is there a better way to be doing it? Pull up a chair and find out.
