Podcast Interview in the Movement Series: Body Positive Fitness - with Jenna Doak

In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m continuing the movement series where I’m joined by Jenna Doak, co-owner and head trainer at Body Positive Fitness. We’re talking about why she started Body Positive Fitness and her journey away from toxic fitness culture.

We also talk about how to get over all or nothing thinking to help you have a better relationship to movement.

In This Episode, We Talk About

  • Jenna’s fitness journey and how her relationship to fitness has changed from when she started working in it at a young age,
  • The challenge of getting out of the normalized toxic behaviours while still working in the fitness industry,
  • How she has removed body talk from her movement classes,
  • The joy of training and moving without an end goal of losing a certain amount of weight,
  • How she removes shame from her practice,
  • That there are so many ways to move your body, it doesn’t need to be something you hate or dread, it should be something that’s fun for you,
  • Jenna’s advice to someone who still feels like movement is a “should,”
  • Why she offers “options,” instead of “modifications” to exercises,
  • How it’s your workout and you can always choose what you want to be doing,
  • How she handles goal-setting with her clients,
  • Advice for someone who wants to go to a trainer, but is nervous about gyms and being entrenched in diet culture,
  • Plus so much more!
