    Summer series: Tiffiny Hall on body love

    Summer series: Tiffiny Hall on body love

    For the next few episodes of Uninterrupted we’re harking back to some of our favourite conversations of 2019. Like this chat about body love with February cover star and mega-trainer Tiffiny Hall. We’ll be back with new episodes soon. Until then, enjoy this throwback!


    Author. Mega-trainer. Body image advocate. Tiffiny Hall has been part of the Aussie fitness scene for over a decade. But, as you’ll discover in this raw, emotional and truly inspiring chat, there’s so much more to this ground-breaking powerhouse than just her black belt in Taekwondo. From battling it out on TV show Gladiators to helping people change their lives on The Biggest Loser, the founder of health and fitness program TIFFXO has long been known for her straight-talking, honest and warm approach. But when her first child, Arnold, was born almost two years ago, it led to an unexpected epiphany about the insane pressure society places on women to “bounce back” after pregnancy, and led to the kind of joy and strength she’d only ever dreamed on. Now, she’s on a brand new mission: Helping other women accept and love their bodies (and be a little kinder to themselves) every single day. In this episode, she shares the private health challenge that’s turned her into the fighter she is today. And talks openly about success, self-love, motherhood, motivation and how learning to exercise your “no” muscle could actually change your life.

    Summer series: Marika Day on gut health

    Summer series: Marika Day on gut health

    For the next few episodes of Uninterrupted we’re harking back to some of our favourite conversations of 2019. Our top download for the year? A chat about gut health and nutrition with dietitian Marika Day. We’ll be back with new episodes soon. Until then, enjoy this throwback!


    While our guest is all about BS-free advice, she isn’t afraid to talk s**t. As a dietitian and nutritionist with a focus on digestive health, Marika Day is here to educate and raise awareness about the gut.


    The timing couldn’t be better, really. Stats suggest that half of us complain of a digestive problem in any 12-month period. One in five Aussies struggle with irritable bowel syndrome, with women twice more likely to be affected than men. The gut has become one of the biggest areas in the wellness world, with bloating positivity now a social media movement, people knocking back kombucha, and everyone from Kayla Itsines to Karlie Kloss talking about gut health. Bill Gates is even investing in probiotic research.


    But, where does the hype end and the reality begin? And what steps will actually help you look after your gut? In this chat with WH features editor Alex Davies, Marika answers all this and more.

    Clare Bowditch: How to tell your inner critic to F-off

    Clare Bowditch: How to tell your inner critic to F-off

    You know that anxious voice in your head – the one that tells you you’re not good enough, fit enough, thin enough, smart enough – the voice that sabotages all your good intentions? By the end of this episode, we’re betting you’ll have a name for it.


    Today’s guest, ARIA-award winning singer Clare Bowditch, calls that voice Frank. When she was younger, she had to tell Frank to f*ck off quite often. Nowadays she has a more polite relationship with him, where a simple ‘no thanks’ will do, but it took her a long time to get there. In this chat with WH deputy editor Lizza Gebilagin, Clare gets honest about her struggles with mental health and the stories she shares in her memoir Your Own Kind Of Girl (Allen & Unwin, $29.99). We talk about the strategies that have helped her cope with anxiety, including more on Frank, how she learnt to love her body after going on her first diet at the age of 10, and how she turned her life around.


    As she writes in her book, “What starts as a breakdown really can become the moment you look back on as a breakthrough, as the moment in which you started to live your own kind of life.”

    Sam Bloom: Don’t wait to chase your dreams

    Sam Bloom: Don’t wait to chase your dreams

    Before a tragic accident shattered her world, Sam Bloom had it all. She was a happily married mother of three, was practicing as a nurse and led an active lifestyle on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. But when she leant on a rotten balcony railing during a family holiday in Thailand, and crashed six metres onto the concrete below, her life changed forever. She was told that she would never walk again. Months of intense rehabilitation were just the beginning of her long journey to recovery. After returning to Australia, she slipped into a deep depression. Then, one day, an unusual companion turned out to be Sam’s saving grace. From the depths of despair, she’s gone on to rebuild her life, and re-discover her love of sport, winning gold for Australia at the World Adaptive Surfing Championships. She now travels the country sharing her powerful message: No matter what happens, never, ever give up.

    Michelle Bridges: How to build a life you love

    Michelle Bridges: How to build a life you love

    What’s the secret to a positive relationship with exercise? How can you build a life you love? What lessons can we all learn from Kung Fu Panda?


    We talk about all this and more with our latest guest, who really needs little introduction. A trainer, speaker, entrepreneur and author with 20 books to her name, Michelle Bridges has been at the forefront of the fitness industry for decades. From teaching workout classes in leg warmers at school to training up a storm on The Biggest Loser and heading up one of the original online lifestyle programs – the 12 Week Body Transformation, which celebrates its 10th birthday next year. She has her own ranges of kitchenware, ready meals, fitness equipment and activewear.


    Full disclaimer, though: this episode isn’t really about exercise. Sure, we’ll chat about Michelle’s workouts, fitness trends and the changes she’s seen over the years. But, we’ll also talk about the most crucial thing for building healthy habits, which is mindset – and Michelle’s strategies for looking after yours.


    Plus:
    - The power of saying no
    - Her meditation revelation
    - Her life as a parent
    - The magic of finding your fuel

    Canna Campbell - manifesting money, slaying debt and why mindfulness is key to getting you finances into shape

    Canna Campbell - manifesting money, slaying debt and why mindfulness is key to getting you finances into shape

    Does the thought of your financial situation make you anxious? It’s not just you. More than half of women under the age of 35 find dealing with money stressful. It’s bad for our bank accounts but worse for our health with Danish researchers finding financial stress can lead to the early onset of poor cognitive function and increased inflammation, which contributes to chronic conditions.

    Not great, huh?

    That’s why we asked Canna Campbell to be our latest podcast guest for Women’s Health Uninterrupted. Canna is a financial advisor and the author of a new book Mindful Money (Viking, $34.99). She’s famous for making vids for her YouTube channel, SugarMamma.tv, encouraging women to find financial independence and practise what she calls ‘money mindfulness’.

    In this episode, Canna covers:
    * What you can do to manifest money
    * How you can make more money with the money you currently have
    * Why you don’t need to give up your activewear budget to get control of your finances (it’s called “sanity money”)
    * What you can do to get rid of debt
    * The link between minimalism, mindful spending and mental health
    * How she had to let go of being the “perfect mum” with all the right stuff
    * How she built herself back up financially, as a single mum, after her divorce
    * Why you don’t need a heap of money to start investing. It’s less than you think!

    For Canna, getting your finances into shape all starts with mindset. It can’t be forced.

    “It's like me saying to you, ‘You’ve got to go on a diet or you've got to run a marathon.’ Unless you are genuinely connected to wanting to run a marathon, it’s going to be the most meaningless, soulless, boring, dull, depressing experience.

    “When you look at your mindset, and look at ‘Why am I doing this? What's important? What are the things I'm going to gain? How's this going to help me?’, that’s when you start feeling really connected, and committed, and motivated, and inspired to make this shift happen.”
