    70. Do You Need A Fitness Coach?

    70. Do You Need A Fitness Coach?

    How do you know if you need to hire a personal trainer or coach? What’s the difference between the two anyways? And if you do need one, how do you pick one? The coaching industry might feel crowded with voices telling you one thing or another and it gets overwhelming. That’s why in this episode, I’m sitting down with my good friend and colleague Nicole, who has been training clients for over 25 years herself, so we can set the record straight once and for all. Getting clear on your fitness goals and expectations can help you decide on the right kind of personal training investment to make, and how to tell the good coaches apart from the really great ones.

    69. Is Perimenopause Causing You to Gain Weight?

    69. Is Perimenopause Causing You to Gain Weight?

    Today’s episode might be a sensitive topic for some, but it’s becoming a pet-peeve of mine and I think it needs to be discussed: is perimenopause the cause of all of your weight gain struggles? I see this everywhere, brands and influencer targeting women in their 40’s and claiming they have the one answer to all your perimenopausal weight-related issues, but there’s one main problem: there is absolutely no truth to the idea that perimenopause causes weight gain at all! You might actually be experiencing perimenopause and if that’s the case there are ways to alleviate symptoms. However, if you’re seeing some weight gain as you reach your 40’s and beyond, there’s more that can be done than just blaming your changing hormones and giving up.

    68. Myth Busting: Should You Avoid Fruit?

    68. Myth Busting: Should You Avoid Fruit?

    Welcome to a series here on Making Fit Work where I’ll be breaking down some of the most popular health & fitness myths out there so you can pay attention to what really matters on your own journey.
     
    This myth is a little surprising to me, but for some reason it seems to stick around: should you avoid eating fruit because it has too much sugar? I don’t know about you, but I’ve never met anyone who is starting a health and fitness journey because they over-indulged in too many apples or too many smoothies. Of course fruit has sugar, and you can definitely be mindful of when you’re consuming it, but there are so many benefits to getting in your daily servings of fruit. In fact, I think the real reason people are cutting out fruit is to avoid making the changes that will actually make a difference in living a healthier life.

    67. How to Build Confidence in Yourself with Catherine Wood

    67. How to Build Confidence in Yourself with Catherine Wood

    In order to be the best version of yourself and build the kind of life you love, you need to be able to have confidence. Confidence isn’t a zero-sum game, where some people have it and other just don’t. Building your confidence is exactly like building muscle—it takes reps, and it takes time. Today I had the pleasure of chatting with Catherine Wood, Head Coach of Unbounded Potential, a firm supporting introverted, empathic, and sensitive entrepreneurs build their own joy-filled lives. Catherine shares with us what true confidence looks and feels like, as well as some tactical steps we can all take to reconnect with the confidence inside us all.

    66. How To Be Your Own Diet Detective!

    66. How To Be Your Own Diet Detective!

    One thing I always want to give to my clients is more than just meal plans and quick fixes for the time that we work together, but the tools they need to eat healthy and get results for their whole life. A meal plan of plain chicken and broccoli might work for a few weeks to months, but that’s no way to live and nobody is going to find sustainable results that way. That’s why I like to help my clients become Diet Detectives. I teach them to ask the right questions and look to the big dial movers in their lives so that once our time together is over, they can keep up with the strongest, healthiest, happiest version of themselves.

    65. Myth Busting: Eating Small, Frequent Meals

    65. Myth Busting: Eating Small, Frequent Meals

    Welcome to a new series here on Making Fit Work where I’ll be breaking down some of the most popular health & fitness myths out there so you can pay attention to what really matters on your own journey. 
     
    Do you need to be eating small, frequent meals in order to lose weight? Of course not! There is no one-size-fits-all method of eating that works for everyone! Small, frequent meals might work for your specific needs, but it’s not magic bullet for losing weight. What matters most is eating in a way that’s sustainable for your life, whether you’re eating at home, on vacation, during the holidays, or on an average day.
