I’m really excited to introduce you to today’s guest, Hollie Grant – she’s a PT and a Pilates Instructor and founder of the model method, she trains crazy big celebs like Jourdan Dunn. Basically, she’s a big deal. But what I love about Hollie is that she’s not some crazy gym person; she’s gets real on some of the problems in her industry, like the obsession with aesthetics over form and function, and how no one talks about the benefits of exercise independent of losing weight or getting jacked up. I kind of give her a hard time about the whole ‘strong not skinny thing’ and I love that she shuts me down and points out that strong doesn’t necessarily mean physically strong, and how movement can also help make you emotionally and mentally stronger, which I’m all about. I just think it’s so cool to talk to someone in this industry who isn’t trying to make it all about looking a particular way or posting weird pictures that are supposed to be inspiring but make you feel like shit. I think you’re going to love Hollie!
