My guest this week is an incredible woman. Louise Green is an author, influencer, and award-winning size-inclusive fitness trainer who has been changing the narrative of our fitness culture since 2007. You might know her as the founder of the brand and app, Big Fit Girl, she’s published two books, and she writes a monthly fitness column in Self Magazine.
Most recently, Louise founded Big Fit Academy to bring size-inclusivity to the mainstream through educating wellness professionals and brands. I just recently took her course and I immediately knew I had to have her on the show, and I’m so excited you get to meet her too.
Join us this week to hear Louise’s journey of seeing the impact of diet culture on women and the biases plus-sized people experience on a daily basis. She’s here to share her experience of finding body liberation, and why she decided it was necessary to share this gift with the world and create a size-inclusive environment for larger-bodied people.
