It’s super easy for us as entrepreneurs and go-getters to take the same approach that we do in our business into every aspect of our lives whether it’s food, raising your children, exercise, etc. Whatever it is, we do it with a level of swift efficiency and in an effort to maximize our results. 

In this episode, we’re talking all about exercise… but through the lens of a completely different philosophy than one we’ve explored before on this podcast. My guest today, Samantha Kellgren, is an expert at building out exercise, fitness, and movement plans that actually align with our intuitive need to move. She emphasizes that it is not about “How do I go harder and faster every time?” But instead, about building a movement plan that connects to our needs at any given moment that actually enables us to fall in love with exercise again and acknowledges the rest and restoration that our bodies need to be able to perform at their best. 

This was a fascinating conversation (and timely as we head into the new year!) I know you’ll enjoy this one just as much as I did!

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women 

Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO 

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting!
