There are many superficial questions about fitness that tend to float around the internet and spark debate. Does lifting make you bulky? Which exercises will grow your glutes and “snatch” your waist? Should I do “this” or “that” for “x” result? But in this episode, strength and conditioning coach Allison Tenney calls us in to go deeper and consider the systems of oppression that lie beneath these questions.

Spoiler alert: there is much to be gained from moving your body outside of physical performance or physique. If you’re a fan of deep and important conversations, you’re not going to want to miss this one!

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Allison’s background as an athlete turned soccer coach turned online fitness coach for women
  • A look into Allison’s business and the layers of messaging underneath her social media posts and strength programs
  • How exercise can help us improve our capacity to tolerate discomfort outside the gym
  • The use of movement as a somatic practice and the idea of “remembering and re-membering the body”
  • The importance of getting off the hamster wheel of "never enough"
  • And so much more!
