Episode 135: Body Upgrade: the Pros and Cons of Pushing Our Bodies

Uncategorized Feb 14, 2024

Today we are diving into our relationship with our Bodies, Health and Performance. 


What does it mean to YOU to be FIT? 


Everyone I speak to says health is one of their core values, but WHAT does that really mean?

Have you taken a look around at what ‘normal’ looks like lately? Medicated, stressed out, tired and burned out. Bags under eyes, bloated bellies and joint aches and pains.


All it takes is one look around to see how OUT of shape and out of integrity we are if that’s the case.


And what about all these ‘ultra’ fit looking athletes with not an ounce of fat on them - winning championships and crushing the competition. Is that a spitting image of health?

All those muscles. All those medals. All that talk of ‘no pain, no gain!’


I have been in the world of athletics, nutrition, weight loss and competition for over 3 decades now. AND If you would have asked me this question 20 years ago, my answer would be radically different than it is today. 10 years ago? Different again. In the past 5 years? 


My definition of health has been completely upgraded, rewritten and fully aligned.

That’s because we EVOLVE. And as we evolve, I believe so should our definitions of what success looks like for us. So should our mindset, our daily practices and protocols. 


Today we are talking about upgrading our health and vitality - and that starts with the programs that run our RELATIONSHIP with our bodies. AND of course - we are going straight to the SOURCE. In order to optimize anything you’ve got to understand the PURPOSE of it. So, what is the purpose of our BODIES original DESIGN by God?

In this episode, we unpack:

  • Vulnerable childhood experiences that shaped my relationship with fitness + my body
  • Finding strength and identity through athletics during challenging times
  • Using exercise as an escape and the dangers of burnout
  • The importance of nurturing a respectful, balanced relationship with our bodies
  • 3 SHIFTS in thinking and operating that shifted the game for me.
  • God’s PURPOSE and plan for our bodies

Join me as I share the highs and lows of my wellness journey, trusting it will move you to embrace a more holistic approach to health and longevity.
