It actually ends up holding us up and keeping us from trying new things and putting ourselves out there. Among other things, we’ll be discussing some ways to get rid of this troublesome voice through some of the following… Not being ashamed to be a little behind Not taking things personally Not letting one struggle define us If you’ve ever experienced the nuisance of self doubt, this is the motivating episode for you!

Entrepreneur extraordinaire Eleni Anastos joins me on this episode of the Fit is Freedom podcast to discuss all the ways we have the power within ourselves to be free.

"Hope Fitness" isn't getting you where you want to be
Episode 86 Notes In my eyes, there are two types of hope. There’s a good kind of hope, and something I like to call “hope fitness”. The good kind of hope is one of my favorite things about what I do. There’s nothing better than leaving a call with a client where I can tell that a person suddenly feels that what they want to achieve is possible. It’s like a lightbulb goes off, and they can see all of their doubts and fears are melting away. On the other hand, “hope fitness” is that type of fitness where someone simply hopes that they can do something, but they really don’t see it actually happening. This kind of hope is a hope without a plan and without anything to back it up. On this episode of the Fit is Freedom podcast, I’m going to be discussing one amazing way that you can change “hope fitness” to the good kind of hope where you are ready to make your fitness dreams a reality! Join me as I’ll be sharing more about the ultimate Fit is Freedom experience, which includes... Training Accountability Community Competitiveness ...and more!
