How To Integrate Movement Into Your Life – And Enjoy It w/ Katy Bowman – Harder To Kill Radio 111

Walking into Katy Bowman’s house you won’t find a couch in her living room. One of the guests for whom I receive the most requests to have on the show, Katy is the creator of Nutritious Movement, an author, and hosts an award-winning podcast. Nutritious Movement works to help people create a more balanced and healthy movement diet. This means rethinking the frequency and enjoyment you find when you move your body.

Katy’s goal is to help people start moving more, exercising more, and enjoying their movement. By creating a system of low intensity but constant movement you will be able to enhance what your body is able to do. Our society has built up a negative connotation around constantly moving, and Katy is here to change that perception. Start enjoying your body again and join the movement revolution with today’s episode.

Quotes

“I’ve always preferred to train in extremes, if that makes sense. I would not choose to lay around outside on a 110-degree day but I wouldn’t mind going for a hike or a walk, because once I get moving I find that cooling.” (8:57)

“If you have a floor you have a built-in training program to maintain the capacity and the function of your knees, hips, ankles, and spines, it’s just that we never take it all the way.” (16:35)

“It’s not an aversion to comfort, it’s simply trying to change the geometry of my household, it’s really that simple. I want the places for my butt to rest to be different than the places that my butt has been resting for the past 40 years.” (34:07)

  1. I love the idea of putting a system in place so you can see what your body can do. This is so key! Often times we get into ruts and we don’t even realize what our bodies are truly capable of, we don’t push ourselves out of the rut. If we take on a little bit of action, a little bit of movement every day, we can begin to see just how much we can do. This is empowering and encouraging!
