In this episode, Nicola and Florence meet Jamie, non-diet fitness Personal Trainer.
Jamie explains what led her to become a PT and a Zumba instructor, as well as a physio assistant. Jamie shares how she never really felt close to the appearance-focused fitness values in her field, and was practicing a much more compassionate, mindful approach to her job, even before learning about Health At Every Size.
Together we discuss toxic fitness culture, how to come out of exercise addiction thanks to the acronym FIL (Feel, Impact, Lesson), what Jamie understands as "movement for more" and how she helps her clients reframe their relationship with exercise. We also discuss what led Jamie to stop subscribing to Zumba as an instructor.
Attention! Please make sure to only consider personal training AFTER recovering at least 3 periods. (http://noperiod.info/wait-three-cycles)
