Certified personal trainer and former women’s health coach, Laurie Mallon, interviews health and fitness professionals to redefine what we’ve commonly viewed as the successful outcome of a wellness program (weight loss) to get an understanding of what actually makes a difference when it comes to long-term health.This podcast is for anyone ready to ditch diet culture and create more space in their life with a focus on non-diet nutrition awareness, a mindful movement practice, and a stronger mind-body connection so you can tap into the RESULTS you truly want to achieve.
