Dan John is an industry legend who has a very practical approach to fitness after years of research and experience in the industry. We talk about how fitness needs to change as we age, and it needs to take women’s health through menopause seriously. He focuses this conversation on 4 categories: health, longevity (women have the edge on this), fitness (tasks we want to do) and performance. Also we discuss losing our mojo as we age and how to reign it back in bit by bit and where to start.
Kelly Coffey (C-O-F-F-E-Y) is a fucking badass. She’s the force behind Strong Coffey Personal Training in New England, and the popular blog strongcoffey.com. In 1997, at over 300 pounds, Coffey was a study in how not to treat a human body. She was depressed, inactive, and uncomfortable. She had weight loss surgery only to gain much of the weight back - AGAIN. Sad, disconnected, and scared to even hope, she finally saw what the problem was - not her body or her weight, but her obsessive drive to sabotage every health- and care-based commitment she tried to make. She pieced together a practical, real-world solution to self-sabotage and the loss/gain cycle, and has maintained a healthy, comfortable weight for well over a decade. Coffey coaches women all over the world on how to do the same in her acclaimed online course, the Pleasure Principles.
Kim Vopni, The Vagina Coach, is an expert who talks all about the vagina, apparently one of the worlds most hated words.
