Today I’m joined by Laurie King. I’ve been following Laurie for quite some time so I was really excited to get into this episode. Laurie is a nutrition coach who decided to pursue a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics after her own battles with an eating disorder and an under-active thyroid. Laurie decided to pursue this degree not only to remedy her own issues with eating but to put herself in the position to be able to ensure that others would never be in her position with her relationship with food. Laurie focuses on how to eat in a way that supports overall health and a balance of hormones without the need for medication. This was a conversation that I was constantly learning throughout and one that I really enjoyed. In today’s episode we talk about how Laurie got started in nutrition coaching, hormonal health, how imbalances come about, high intensity training and hormonal health, the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and much more.

Today's episode is a crosscast from the new Look Good Move Well podcast. This concept is so important to me, I could talk about it for hours. Vacuuming. Getting out of the car. Standing up. It’s easy to take our ability to move for granted, until it’s taken away. Just like Marcus’s baby daughter, the more ways you can move, the more freedom you have in life. Finding your own entry point into loving the way you can move will also keep you motivated in your training. Listen in to get inspired and take our 5-minute flow challenge!

Today's podcast episode is a conversation I had with Pawel Wencel from Uncharted Performance. I was on the other side of the mic for once and got asked some very good questions. We talk about some of the unique characteristics that have contributed to helping me expand as a person, coach, and host. Some of the central themes identified by Pawel included creativity, exploring, questioning, listening, and coaching. We then talk about how these 5 elements get incorporated into my movement practice, relationships, personal development, and self expression through conscious and persistent effort. My favorite part of Pawel's description is that this all happens while being vulnerable and breaking a few rules along the way.
