“The more I saw those benefits of like, wow if I can swing a kettlebell I can build strength, build stability, get my cardio in, all these massive benefits for myself, and I could teach it to my athletes or my clients. Like this is great, let’s check all of these boxes.” (16:50)

“Everything we are sold from diet culture to fitness culture, everything is geared around shoving us into this small box. And I’m kind of like enough. Enough with your small box. I want to take up space, I want to use my voice, I want to be able to define what is important to me and how that shows up in my life, just like every other person should be able to do for them.” (20:06)

“You can’t just get the feedback and then feel bad about yourself and then decide to do nothing or just let it go. To me, it’s about how you are going to take that feedback and take action with it.” (31:30)

“You don’t have to compromise pieces of who you are to show up as your full self.” (40:26)
