    140: Reimagining Fitness As A Revolutionary Act with Danielle Friedman (S7 Finale)

    140: Reimagining Fitness As A Revolutionary Act with Danielle Friedman (S7 Finale)

    This time of year can bring up a lot of negative cultural messaging — and therefore negative self-talk — around bodies and working out, and while things are changing for (hopefully) the better, we’ve GOT to know where we’ve come from and how we got here so that we can get to where we truly want to be. 

    Danielle Friedman is an award-winning journalist and author of the critically acclaimed cultural history of women's fitness Let's Get Physical: How Women Discovered Exercise and Reshaped the World. 
    From the revolutionary and sometimes radical beginnings to the intermingling of diet culture and fitness, to fitness’s place in the feminist movement, to the history of fitness shaping our self-perception — hopefully, this episode can help you get curious about movement’s place in your own life, what’s informed that, and where you’re going from here.
     
    (This is also the season finale — we're taking a short summer vacay. See you in a couple months!)

    139: Are We Okay?

    When life gets stressful, do you go MIA? Why a text from a friend inspired the podcast’s return, a conversation about why we shut down, and how to give yourself what you need without compromising everything else in the meantime. Also, how to support your loved ones who do this (without ignoring what you need, too).

    135: Love Is A Verb with Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison and Holley M. Kholi-Murchison

    135: Love Is A Verb with Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison and Holley M. Kholi-Murchison

    True love, real love, "the one"... the way people describe love is pretty and aspirational, but ultimately super vague. What does love actually feel like? How do you know it's love and not just old habits or displaced desires? Is love even a noun at all, or is it an action?
    And HOW THE HECK do you separate your own self-love from the love you experience from someone else — especially if that person fills many roles in your life?
    In this episode, I talk to partners in life, love, and business, Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison and Holley Kholi-Murchison (also two of my favorite humans on the planet). These two are each true forces of natures as individuals — so when their powers combine, they're unstoppable: from their work together as co-founders of HOLI. Brands to their upcoming four-week immersive Skillshare course, Build the Next Chapter of Your Career, to the way they champion each other professionally AND personally, they're such strong models of how to truly be in relationship and partnership with someone else....and as you'll hear in this episode, also honor yourself and your own desires.
    If you're been re-evaluating and reflecting about the way you relate to love lately, this episode is for you. It's filled with deep truths, big laughs, and — yes, LOTS of love. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

So refreshing!

Loved the most recent episode (love is a verb) where the guests talked about how you can learn to love yourself and someone else at the same time. It was such an insightful and refreshing take to something we hear all the time!

Cher Hale ,

The right advice at the right time

I’ve been following Katie’s work for a few years and, in that time, I’ve witnessed a beautiful tendency to pull out the exact nuggets of wisdom someone struggling with debilitating self-talk might be experiencing. More than once, one of her conversations has helped me reframe an unhelpful thought or change my view of myself. So much gratitude to her and her work.

EricaBushwell ,
