119. Female Specific Fitness with Trainer, Jen Dugard

September 14, 2022

In this episode, I interview fitness professional turned educator and mentor, Jen Dugard about the importance of female specific fitness.

Jen has changed the landscape of how mums are looked after within the fitness industry. In 2016, Jen developed her pre & postnatal accreditation, "Safe Return to Exercise" and has now delivered this accreditation to thousands of trainers across the world.

In the episode, Jen and I discuss-

  • why women need to train differently to men;
  • how to vet your trainer to ensure they know how to train women;
  • red flags to watch out for from trainers;
  • why strength is so important for females;
  • why our pelvic floor matters; and
  • how we can strengthen our pelvic floor and the best way that busy and overwhelmed mums can commencer exercise.

112. How To Conquer Your Gut Health, with Registered Dietitian Heather Finley

112. How To Conquer Your Gut Health, with Registered Dietitian Heather Finley

April 6, 2022

Today I chat gut health with registered dietitian, Dr Heather Finley.  

Heather, who struggled with her own gut health issues for years, completed her doctorate in clinical nutrition to literally figure out what the doctors couldn’t. After navigating restrictive diets that left her social life in shambles, and food guilt at an all-time high, Heather conquered her gut health issues and now teaches that gut health is about so much more than what you eat.  

In today’s episode, Heather and I talk about what good gut health means and what the gut brain connection is. We discuss why our mindset influences our gut health and what we can do from a nutrition perspective to improve our gut health. We also discuss lifestyle factors for gut health, gut triggers, restrictions, how to increase our tolerance to foods and how to reduce gas. Finally, we talk about some gut health myths we want to dispel.  

If you would like to learn more about gut health from Heather, follow her on Instagram or visit her website.
