Normalize All Bodies in Fitness

 

My first job in the fitness industry I won because I “look cute in that leotard.” No mention of my knowledge of talent for teaching and training.

I was 19.

Message: “looking good is far more valuable than the work you do.”

I worked with a total badass in the fitness industry in my late 20’s, who said “well, you’re young and cute, so you’ll get the client before me.”

She was usually unfortunately correct.

I went through deep shame in my 30’s due to Diastasis Recti. I didn’t look the part, what is WRONG with her, she didn’t “bounce back,” …. I got stares and harsh judgements, including from members of the fitness industry.
“Just do more ab work.” They said
(Sidenote: that is terrible advice)

I became a master trainer for one of the world’s leading fitness brands in my 40’s. Their response to me “wear more lipstick.” And “you’re aging. You will need to really step up your look” and “wear only this type of top…”

Very little was said about the fact that I was greatly impacting the trainers I was training.

And now, I am in my mid 40’s. And I stayed home for a year, much like the people I serve. My body and face have changed a little, reflecting life in my 40’s.

I’m proud of the work I do and the people I serve, but the back of my mind hears those old voices “is she cute enough?” “She should wear only this style…”

If you have those messages from any aspect of your life or career, know that I see you. Know that I am with you. If we normalize being normal; ie aging healthfully, we can shift this norm.

I never EVER want my daughters’ messaging to be about her looks being her value. The fact that my younger one is in theatre makes me extra cautious.

But I do believe you and me… we can show and celebrate women of all sizes and ages to normalize being healthy and happy over “cute enough” and “skinny enough.”

When to Refer Out

Fitness Professional ;

We should all be referring clients that need help to those that can help them.

RIGHT?

In your back pocket should be a trusted
-chiropractor
-physical therapist
-physician
-nutritionist
-accupuncturist
-massage therapist
-mental health therapist
-midwife
-doula
-(add in here a housekeeper, chef, oils expert, and other self care practitioners)

Do you have that?

Time to start networking!

One major reason my clients trust me is because they can tell me what’s going on, and I can say “hey, I know this great….” and I MEAN it. I’m not sending them to someone that just fell off the pickle truck!

Another major reason my clients come to me is that I can help them with their fitness choices that I appropriate for THEM, not for my agenda.

You have a list of exercises to teach today.
Do you know what to do if a new mom walks in your class?
What about someone with a chronic pain problem?

This is one of the things I help professionals do: I help them learn how to help clients more through options in fitness that empower them to do more and to actually get stronger, not just fall in line.

I’m also really good and helping clients with core and pelvic floor issues, which A LOT of our clients have (did you ask?).

If you want to have better answers and better options for your clients with core and pelvic floor issues, you really need to take my ABC Method Course for fitness professionals (and coaches). It is 12 hours of helping you with all the little things that can change your clients’ entire experience with you…. help them reduce pain, get strong, achieve the results they want, and live better!

We all want that, right?

I have a February class open right now. Head over to theabcmethod.com
OR email me.
I’m accepting limited engagements for private sessions. So, if you work with a team, a gym, or a group in fitness, I can gear the course specifically to you.

I look forward to helping you!
