Body Image w/ Molly Galbraith

episode 36 body image w/ molly galbraith

This week we have the amazing Molly Galbraith on the pod!  Molly is a trainer, lecturer, writer, and all around great person.  I was fortunate enough to meet Molly during the Train Like A Girl 2 Seminar (which she hosted and spoke at).  We’ve been keeping up with each other ever since on a topic near and dear to our hearts:  promoting healthy body image and mindset in our clients, friends, and family.  Molly jumped on the pod to discuss just this and other topics as well!

You can find more of Molly’s work here [and you’re going to want to :)]

Hunt and Gather – Food on the Road – Osaka Airport

Normally, I live by this rule:  eat real food.  But when you are in a new place without access to a stove, on a schedule, and unaware of where the grocery store is, it can get tricky.  A little preparation and thought can go a long way – as well as knowing what foods you CAN eat in excess without feeling too crappy.

What kinds of travel foods would you never leave home without?

Mobility in the Airport – Prepping for the CF Lvl 1 cert

Hey everyone!

This week and next, I’ll be rolling out some videos, articles, and other content all about my trip to the CrossFit lvl 1 Certification in Seoul, South Korea. It was an amazing journey with ups and downs and lots of lessons learned. I won’t keep you waiting for the results though…I passed! So now I am officially CrossFit certified. So excited and glad to be on my way towards my goal of helping people get healthy and find joy in life through exercise and lifestyle changes.

First up, here’s a quick video I shot in the airport the day I left. Check it out and please leave a comment on how YOU would prep (or did prep) for a CrossFit cert.

What is Functional Fitness? Continue reading
