169: Motivation, Flexibility, and RETHINKING Your Relationship With FITNESS with Amanda Katz

The best fitness advice isn’t necessarily what you think it is. In a sea of tips, tricks, and programs telling you what to do, how do you figure out what’s right for you, and maybe more tricky — how do you build a sustainably healthy relationship with exercise? Especially if you’re someone who has a history with eating disorders or body image issues?

Today’s guest, NYC fitness professional Amanda Katz, is here to talk about:

• Why motivation and even discipline are smaller pieces of the puzzle than we realize, and what to focus on instead to create lasting habits
• Specific examples of what flexibility in an exercise routine can look like
• Having a healthy relationship with fitness after struggling with eating disorders, disordered patters, or body image 
• How to approach fitness and training goals no matter who you are
• How to help a loved one when you’re worried they’re going down a harmful path of disordered behaviors
• Combatting NEW YEAR NEW YOU toxic fitness culture messaging in January (and beyond)
• and more!
