Health & Fitness
More of these conversations are needed, as it brings a voice to many of the struggles women face around their bodies and health. A voice that brings brings women together through their common experience, and helps men empathetically see the powerful social pressures women are under.
Molly is absolutely the right person for this conversation! She’s had quite the rollercoaster with her body and self-worth over the last 16 years, and has spent the last 8 years connecting, understanding and educating over 700,000 women worldwide on health and fitness through Girls Gone Strong.
Molly’s commitment to understand the psychological issues and needs of women regarding health, fitness and physique is unrivalled. Her personal battles and struggles, a career of being in the gym, being an educator, as well an ambassador for women’s wellbeing brings a level of understanding and empathy which women and men get so much out of.
This episode covers how culturally women have been conditioned to care so deeply about how their bodies look and the judgement of others. We talk about the obsession with leanness, the issues with tying your self-worth to your body, the common mismatch between goals and actions, building muscle as a women, and the aggressive language within fitness. Molly shares her story, her battle with Hashimoto’s, and how she balances out her life and wellbeing needs now. Plus lots more.
As a man, I would thoroughly encourage every guy to listen to this, and I hope for women that Molly and I carefully and accurately covered some world-truths and health and fitness issues you care about. A must-listen for everyone! I personally learnt so much...
