[PODCAST] Fat Positive Fitness with Erin Bogle
[NEW] Fat Positive Fitness with Erin Bogle ✨
As a person in a larger sized body, the lack of safety Erin Bogle (@biggirlYYC) has felt in fitness and health spaces is long standing, unsurprising, and unjust.
I first met Erin through her creation of Big Girl YYC, a community born from women in larger bodies feeling like they didn’t belong or didn’t feel fully safe in fitness and health spaces.
It all started when Erin considered going to a cycling spinning class…and then quickly reconsidered. 👇🏻
Her thoughts went to, “I don’t belong in a spin class in this body. The bike won’t hold my body. That space isn’t for someone like me.”
Erin Bogle, she/her/hers, is a size inclusive advocate, community builder, mama, and wife.
In today’s @tobirthandbeyondpodcast episode Erin recounts and educates on the uncomfortable and harmful experiences had by those in larger, bigger, fat bodies in fitness and health spaces.
And for our fitness and health colleagues, today’s episode is another opportunity for us to look at our businesses, marketing, and coaching.
1️⃣ How can we make our spaces safer?
2️⃣ How can we do less harm as fitness and health professionals?
3️⃣ How do we need to PERSONALLY adjust and do the work of unraveling our biases to be the helpers we assert to be?
Thank you, Erin. Endlessly grateful for your sharing. Appreciate you and your leadership so much. ❤️
