About This Show
Do you feel like a failure when it comes to your wellness and fitness journey? You've tried the diets, the countless fitness programs, and all the superfoods, but nothing seems to stick. Hi, I'm Ali Reti, former national fitness trainer turned wellness and fitness activist, and I'm here to tell you a secret: You're not a failure—the industry is failing you. After working in the fitness industry for over a decade, I realized people weren't in pursuit of losing those last 10 pounds, but rather they craved something deeper. To achieve self-acceptance and freedom from the tightly wound restrictions they'd placed on themselves. The Progress Over Perfection podcast will help you release the societal shame of looking perfect and being perfect, so you can live a life free from diets, restriction and shame. Are you ready to let go of the false hope that's being sold and the empty promise that a perfect body will somehow heal you? Then join me each week as I address taboo topics with thought leaders in the industry who are paving the way to a new standard. Say goodbye to the "rules" once and for all, so you too can choose progress over perfection.

Ep 015: Lightness Of Body & Mind, w/ Sarah Hays Coomer

We're back with episode 15 of the Progress over Perfection Podcast. In today's episode, I interview Sarah Hays Coomer, the author Lightness of Body and Mind: A Radical Approach To Weight and Wellness. Sarah founded Strength Outside In, which is an uprising, a rejection of the idea that we need to control and overpower our bodies in order to make them better, stronger, and healthier. It's a movement toward authentic wellbeing in which we wiggle, wriggle, bounce, roll or otherwise crawl our way toward better health in whatever way we can manage. Sarah is a personal trainer and #DietAbolisionist. You will never find Sarah at a bootcamp. Instead, you will find her wandering the hills of Tennessee, California, and anywhere else with sunshine, air, and a mountain to climb- stopping whenever she feels like it to lay flat on her back with a bottle of water in one hand and a cookie in the other. Show Notes: Her start in the wellness and fitness industry Why she felt called to write her book Her radical approach, and why she's knocking peoplep's socks off (in the best possible way) Her client's success stories, and why they're able to maintain lasting results Her approach on exercise, and why you can't get a body you love by doing things you hate Why we need to move away from trying to control our bodies Her strong emphasis on strength, power, adventure and vitality over appearance How she chooses progress over perfection in her daily life Connect with Sarah: Book: http://www.strengthoutsidein.com/book Website: http://www.strengthoutsidein.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/strengthoutsidein/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bodybaggage
