We invite you to join us behind the scenes with our team of coaches and other experts in the industry as we discuss topics relevant to women. Each episode will dive deeper into commonly oversimplified "health and fitness tips" to help you understand the context and nuance often missed when information is shared in places like social media.
We consider the evidence, experience, and psychological considerations when conducting our interviews. We aim to educate and empower you to build a customized experience in your body.

Q1 - Lately, I have been noticing this feeling during my sessions. What suggestions do you have to help?
Q2 -Advice?!? I am a 15-year-old female athlete. My soccer season just ended, and I have about a month before basketball starts up. The problem is, I have been eating a small breakfast and a light dinner and have dropped to about 100. As a high schooler and teenager, I have never felt better about my body. But, as an athlete, I have never felt weaker and less capable. Today, I went to the park to shoot around, and I couldn’t even make a 3-point shot to the rim because I was so weak. I’m not quite sure how to approach this, so any advice is more than welcome!
Q3 - First Powerlifting Meet
Hi ladies, I'm excited for season two! Also, I am getting ready for my first powerlifting meet. I am feeling anxious about lifting in front of people. Do you have any tips to help me perform my best?
