Hey rebels, welcome to the first of many bonus episodes to come! I decided I’ve got too much information to share and lessons from so many experts that I realized a podcast one day a week just isn’t going to cut it anymore!
This week, I’m kicking the podcast off with Alex Ellis, the creator of AE Wellness and just an all-around cutie. Not only is she completely adorable, Alex is a self-professed body nerd and a self-care expert. Her mission in life is to understand how the body works and to help everyone feel better and move better every single day.
As runners, injuries are basically the worst thing ever. Alex explores the most common injuries we runners experience with tips on prevention, as well as treatment if you’re already in the deep end. Tune in to hear us spreading the word that self-care can be easy and fun. Alex provides some really simple ways we can look after our bodies better!
Alex dropped some seriously life-changing truth bombs on everything from small self-care tips to stretching and rest days. Her knowledge of the human body is truly jaw-dropping so get excited to try out some of her tips!
Alex is teaching a private class on July 16th where we’ll be diving deep into everything discussed today! If you want an opportunity to ask Alex any questions you might have, join now to catch her on the webinar!
