Ep.270: Greg Glassman and CrossFit Health

We are so excited to welcome Greg Glassman, founder and chairman of CrossFit, back to the podcast this week (check out episode 174 for his first appearance)! We sat down with Greg to hear a little bit more about the thought process behind the recent CrossFit Games changes, and how this signals a shift in priorities for CrossFit as a whole. We also discuss the growth of CrossFit Health and the CFMDL1 program, why Greg thinks it’s important to be working directly with physicians, and why he says he’s not in the business of slinging data or out to change public health.

Ep.165: Macros & Adulting

Happy September!! We’re back this week with a J&C catch-up episode! We start off answering a few listener questions, which quickly turns into a lengthy update about how our macro lives are going. In a nutshell, life is not about weighing and measuring everything you eat, and though we are still learning a lot from our macro journeys, we take a peek at what our lives look like right now (hint: Joy spends half her nights falling asleep on the living room floor, and Claire is learning that having a baby and a full-time job and a husband in school do not lend themselves to working out regularly slash ever). Life happens, and we’re here to keep it real this week!

Ep.156: Flexible Dieting with Sarah Pierce

Our flexible dieting journey continues this week with Sarah Pierce! We both had great results and experiences with WAG, but after finishing our programming, we wanted to work with someone who could help us develop a more long-term mindset. Enter Sarah, who has many years of experience coaching CrossFit athletes, gymnasts, runners–you name it–and now offers a personalized approach to macro counting and nutrition counseling! Sarah answers our questions about how she comes up with her custom plans, how to see results without letting food take over your life, and why drinking wine is (usually) just fine. Whew.

Ep.61: Eating Disorder Real Talk

This week we are excited and privileged to be joined by eating disorder expert Lisa, who not only works in an inpatient clinic for adults with severe eating disorders, but also happens to be one of Joy’s closest friends! Lisa sits down with us (on the floor, obviously) and gives us real answers to questions like how to know when your otherwise healthy eating habits are crossing over into disordered eating, how to balance the realities of emotional and social factors in your diet, what a “normal” relationship with food should feel like, and lots more. So much more, in fact, that this is our longest episode ever. But we think you’ll agree that it’s worth it.

Ep.66: Eating Disorders Part II

Amy/Lisa, LCSW is back! And this week she brought her registered dietician co-worker, Nathalia, with her! A shrink and a dietician in a room together. You might think things are very serious and depressing in this episode. But like Aaron Samuels, you’re wrong. So wrong. Lisa and Nathalia are delightful and while we know this topic is extremely serious and heavy, we still get sidetracked by Claire’s amazing glitter nails. You, listeners, brought your honest and real questions. Lisa and Nathalia do not disappoint in their responses and advice. Joy has multiple Oprah ah-ha moments (MOAHMs). It’s an episode you do not want to miss! (Please email us at girlsgonewod@gmail.com if you’d like referral information to Lisa and Nathalia’s eating disorder treatment center).

Ep.203: GGW + Mind Pump

We were lucky enough to visit the Mind Pump Media studio in San Jose, CA and sit down for an afternoon with Sal, Adam, and Justin to discuss, well, pretty much everything. This 2.5-hour Mega Episode is just a peek into the knowledge and insight that the Mind Pump team brings to the table, covering topics from the evolution of CrossFit, to the mindset behind bodybuilding, to life balance, entrepreneurship, marriage hacks, and childhood trauma. It’s a little bit of everything and you should probably just hit Play already, because no 100-word description is going to do this episode justice. Support the podcast!

Ok let’s start by saying that there are a LOT of F-Bombs in this episode. So, you’ve been warned. We also might as well warn you that this is probably our favorite Juli episode to date, so get ready! This week we cover how to not give a F, how to build a forward-thinking brand, how to have flawless eyebrows, how to create new recipes, and how to stay married to a husband who won’t make any decisions about anything. So basically we talk about everything.

Ep.80: Me Time

It has been a hectic week in GGW Land, with Joy experiencing a death in the family and Claire starting her second semester of grad school. So, obviously, the conversation quickly turns to facials and manicures, and the importance of some good “Me Time” every once in a while. This week, we also talk about Claire’s adventures in ice climbing and how CrossFit has helped her mentally prepare for hanging over the edge of an icy cliff while holding sharp pointy ice axes, and talk about motivation, our new favorite WOD fashion trends, and, of course, Rich Froning’s biceps.

This episode is all about living with insecurities–developing them, ignoring them, hiding them, admitting them, owning them, working on them, and sometimes taking two steps forward and five steps back. And YES, even successful and confident people like these two deal with insecurities every day! We also talk to Adee and Michael about how their entrepreneurial personalities mesh in their marriage, and how their relationship has affected their businesses.

Ep.75: Steph Gaudreau from Stupid Easy Paleo is Back!

We are so excited to have Steph Gaudreau from Stupid Easy Paleo with us again this week! Steph is a serious fountain of knowledge when it comes to Paleo, CrossFit, and spending time with a heavy barbell, and in this episode we talk all about the importance of weightlifting for women, and about the physiological reasons why lifting can be way better for your hormones, brain, muscles, and body composition goals than cardio–especially if you’re a chick. We also talk about her upcoming book, The Performance Paleo Cookbook; what makes it different from her other books, and why you are probably gonna want to add it to your shelf. And if you missed it, don’t forget to listen to Episode 62 to hear her first appearance on GGW!

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet is one of the most well-known women in CrossFit. From being an early adopter of CrossFit and a positive body image pioneer, to competing in the CrossFit Games seven times and winning the 2014 CrossFit Games, you might think you already know just about everything about Camille… but there is so much more to this amazing woman than meets the eye! This week we had the opportunity to sit down with Camille in Boulder and discuss body image and training, but also learned about the values that drive her, her dedication to her Chemical Engineering degree, what she hopes to pass on to the next generation of women, and even some of her favorite marriage hacks.

This week we start out by taking a step back and walking through our macro journey from start to finish, in the hopes that now we can close this chapter for a while and move on to discussing other things. We go back and try to answer the questions from those of you who have had similar macros experiences, and now find it hard to get back to intuitive eating, or who are struggling with getting positive feedback on the outside but noticing some red flags on the inside. Then we answer some listener questions, from when we think someone shouldn’t do CrossFit to our favorite La Croix flavor! Support the podcast! Click the SUBSCRIBE button on iTunes!

Ep.77: Merry Christmas to Your Gut

Merry Christmas! In this episode, eating disorder experts, Nathalia, a Registered Dietitian, and Lisa, a Certified Social Worker, join us again to talk about all things digestion, and, well… poop! We talk about the myth that your body can only absorb “so much” protein, about whether or not kombucha and other fermented foods are really necessary, and what you can tell about your body by taking a peek before you flush every once in a while. We also talk about whether CrossFit is a healthy choice for people who are actively recovering from an eating disorder. We really didn’t plan to release an episode about poop on Christmas, but that’s just the way the cards fell, and we’re not sorry. And I mean really, would you expect anything less?
