    Episode 106: Fitness in Media Series with Tessa Yannone

    Episode 106: Fitness in Media Series with Tessa Yannone

    In this podcast I interview Tessa Yannone, the wellness editor at Boston Magazine. Tessa manages the health and wellness content of their online and print magazine. I wanted to talk to Tessa about fitness representation in media as she has access and experience with various classes, styles of fitness, gyms and wellness trends all over the city! The content that she puts out is really great, thorough, information and I thought she would have excellent insight for other content consumers as to what to look for looking for fitness information online or in print.

Keeps getting better

Sarah does a great job of bringing to light such relevant and importan topics in the fitness world that are often misunderstood, stigmatized, or necessary to bring up as a means to raise awareness and elevate the conversation around it. She covers topics like diversity and inclusion, anxiety, weightloss culture and the list goes one. It's clear she is passionate about these topics and she does an excellent job of bringing on relevant guests for each topic. With every episode I listen to, I hear Sarah settle into her style, find her voice, and continue thriving as a leader in the fitness community. Thank you for sharing your message.

Ms. Polacco,

I’ve thanked you before but I’ll do it here once again. Your podcast has helped me immensely. Not only be a better coach by applying different tips and experiences through the amazing humans that you’ve given a platform to share their knowledge, but to be a better human for myself.

I appreciate your honesty boldness and transparency to share your story. I’ve dealt with anxiety before but have tried to dodge the “label” for years... YEARS! ... YEARS!!!!!!!

After listening to your podcast I’ve been a lot more honest with myself, and more empathetic with the folks I am lucky to work with. That honesty has helped to open up some doors That would have otherwise remained closed and has made training sessions incredibly real!

Thank you for sharing your journey, and being curious and bold enough to create a podcast with such great content.

Such a breath of fresh air!

Thanks Sara for putting out ‘genuine’ good content!
Strength has a greater purpose, and as a woman myself I love to hear this coming from other women and men who feel the same way!
