Episode 57 - From Self-Judgment to Self-Care: Examining Toxic Exercise Culture
In this episode, Katie and Dr. Lisa Folden dive deep into the nuances between toxic diet culture and toxic exercise culture. They discuss how our societal norms around exercise and movement are often rooted in aesthetics, praise, and competition rather than true self-care. Lisa shares her perspective as a physical therapist on how many popular forms of exercise can actually lead to long-term pain and dysfunction. The team urge us to examine our intentions with movement and consider how our 80-year-old selves would want us to care for our bodies. Tune in for an insightful and compassionate discussion about relating to fitness and our physical selves from a place of self-love rather than self-judgement.
