  • Complimenting Weight Loss & Thoughts on Jonah Hill - Ep 35

    Oct 18 2021

    Recently Jonah Hill made the following post on his social media

    “I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body - good or bad. I want to politely let you know that it's not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect”

    This sparked conversations around when is it okay to comment on someone's weight loss. The short answer is never and the long answer I share with you on this week's solo episode.

  • Body Image in the Fitness Industry with Canadian FitPro & Biz Owner Jessie Thomas Ep 33

    Oct 4 2021

    This week, I sit down with Canadian fit pro and owner of Farm Girl Fitness Jessie Thomas. She will share why she started her business and how she was affected by COVID.

    In this episode we discuss

    👉🏻 the toxic things that have to change in the fitness industry if we really want to make a change and help more people enjoy movement and feel better in their bodies.

    👉🏻 She shares her coaching strategies to help clients have a better body image.

    Jessie is the creator and owner of Farm Girl Fitness; a small group training facility with a focus on creative outdoor experiences. Jessie created Farm Girl Fitness in the summer of 2020 to help provide people a safe place to workout, socialize and support mental health. She converted the family farm into a fun, fresh air take on fitness helping people to see the joy that comes from working hard like a farmer. Even with multiple lockdowns due to Covid-19, Jessie kept people moving year round by creating unique ways to workout outside, yes even during the winter.

    Jessie has been in the fitness industry since 2008 as a Can Fit Pro certified group fitness instructor and coach. She is known among her peers and participants for her core values of caring, respect and positivity. After years in the fitness industry experiencing the good, the bad and the ugly, she is committed to helping others develop confidence in themselves, a love of fitness and movement, and a positive body image. She firmly believes that if people can experience the power of nature, the support of a community and a belief in oneself that anything is possible.
