If you google “healthy woman” the images that appear are mostly 20-30 year old Caucasian women who are chiseled, lean and wearing bra tops and booty shorts. We know that healthy doesn’t have a look - but convincing our clients of this is a whole other story. In this two-hour workshop we will explore how, as fitness professionals, we can lead the change to move our industry from a focus on the aesthetics to a focus on health and performance, by utilizing a Body Positive approach. We will explore some of the leading research in this area and take a deep dive into the practical aspects. We will explore how this impacts the fitness business. As an industry we have an opportunity to help people in a truly authentic and effective way through a body positive approach.
