Compared to Who? Body Image for Christian Women

Mar 15, 2021

If you like to workout and have ever spent anytime at the gym (or with Peleton) today's episode is for you. Today I talk with my friend, Amy Connell about some "secrets" of the fitness industry. We talk about what it's like to be an over-forty fitness instructor. She shares her story of a personal struggle with body image, and we talk about things you may not know about that person leading your group fitness class or personal training. Here are a few other topics we explore:

  • Why women over 40 may need to work out differently than other women.
  • What happens when we don't give ourselves grace to age!
  • Why Heather has never taught step aerobics.
  • Why mobility is important.
  • How to stop idolizing fitness professionals, and
  • How you can make a difference for Christ at your gym!

I think you'll glean a lot of wisdom from this fun conversation!
