Women’s Health Physiotherapist and very smart woman Angela Melit joins me in the pod this week, and how amazing is this woman? Angela’s passion is trying to keep us all moving and being able to do the things we really want to do.
We talk through incorporating things into your everyday movement to improve your pelvic floor functioning instead of leaving it to your gym / exercise session. The importance of posture and breathing in everything you do so you can reduce the pressure on your pelvic floor and keep It healthy.
There’s so much more in this chat but Angela’s parting point is to think about what do you want to be doing when you are 80 because you need to prepare now.
A trainer with a difference that is exactly what Alison McGrath is. As a woman with a lifetime of experiences, Alison’s approach is to bring all that she has learned in life together. With this she is able to help other women who are still working to get the very best out of their lives and themselves.
After her initial career in the fitness industry Alison went off and pursued a career in corporate and small business becoming extremely successful but also undergoing the highs and lows of that life. It was one of these lows that finally made her realise she wanted to go back to working with women to help them be fit and healthy even if they too are in stressful and high powered jobs.
We talk all things fitness and how hard it can be as a woman to make time for yourself. We also go a little down memory lane and chat about aerobics classes and her intention to reintroduce retro classes complete with leotards.
