EP 41: Keepin it Real with Chrissy King: Fitness, Mindset & Racism in the Wellness Industry
Mind Your Body
How we can create a more inclusive environment in the wellness space and is racism a public health issue? My guest Chrissy King is keepin' it real on these two topics and so much more. You may have heard of her because of her vital article ""Is Fitness Only for Thin, White Women?" or her other viral interview in Shape "Why Wellness Pros Need to Be Part of the Conversation About Racism". Chrissy King is a fitness coach, writer, speaker, strength coach, and truth-teller with a passion for creating a diverse and inclusive wellness industry. She has been featured in SELF, SHAPE, BuzzFeed, Muscle and Fitness, and Livestrong, among others. In this episode, Chrissy and I are chatting about: [1:26] Strength is a skill, just like any other skill in life that you develop, [4:19] Strength is transferable and the strength I gained in the gym, I feel like that transferred into every area of my life. [5:06] The only way that you're going to grow. And the only way that you're going to find out what you're capable of, and what your limitations are or aren't, is just to try and just to put yourself out there. [11:57] When we think about representation is so important for people to see themselves represented in fitness spaces because you feel more comfortable going into a space where you know, at least someone looks like you or someone that has a similar identity to you. [16:09] We have to start to look outside of our own identities when we are trying to address health and wellness. [21:02] Racism has an actual impact on our health [22:16] Coronavirus has two to three times the death rate for black America, black people, than it does for other groups. [30:07] Moving our bodies in ways that feel good.

Sarah & Dr Brooke Show #203 Inclusion, Diversity and Being Anti-Racist in Wellness with Chrissy King
Dr. Brooke Show
2020 has brought with it so many changes and not the least of which was to shine a bright light on the dark spots in the fitness and wellness industry. From body type to skin color and all manner of differences between us, fitness and wellness are predominantly white and thin and has failed in many ways to be more inclusive to people of all body types, socio-economic status, and skin color, to name a few. Coach Crissy King joins us in an important, and at times uncomfortable, conversation about race, inclusivity and how we can be better humans. Learn more about Crissy here.

This week Sami and Aleen are joined by Chrissy King, fitness coach and creator of the Body Liberation Project, to talk about anti-racism in the wellness industry and why a woman’s self-worth should not be tied to how her body looks. Chrissy starts with the story of how she got into fitness and eventually found self-acceptance by hitting rock bottom, inspiring her body liberation philosophy. They discuss the #takeupspace movement and explain why you shouldn’t shrink yourself for the comfort of other people; plus, the impact of white male mediocrity on the available space for women, and women of color in particular, to thrive. Next, they discuss the role of fat phobia in our daily lives, including the historical connection with racism followed by answering a listener email about setting boundaries with friends. Finally, they close out the show with their Non Scale Wins, including a story about literally turning your back on the scale, and another about not judging yourself for not working out.Thanks to our sponsors: Breyer’s: Go to Breyers.com/DST to get a coupon to try Breyer’s CarbSmart!
