When exercise becomes a stress
on your body.
Kate Murphy is a certified Foundation Training instructor, certified personal trainer, kinesiologist, biomechanics and wellness guru, and the founder of Kate’s Clean Life.
She has worked 15+ years as a personal trainer. For seven of those years she wrestled with chronic pain, failing to find relief on the symptom-chasing treadmill of conventional health care. During her journey to find relief she spent thousands of hours researching and consulting with leading fitness, nutrition, and wellness experts. She truly believes that we don’t have to settle for a life of adjusting to our symptoms and rearranging our lives around problems we’re told have no solutions.
The answers and freedom Kate found drastically changed her life, and now it’s her passion and purpose to help others change theirs.
Kate and Kari kick off the episode by discussing the important topic of the motivation behind why you workout, why you eat healthy, etc. If you are only putting forth the energy because you hate the way you look and not because you want to support your body to be the healthiest it can be, Kate encourages listeners to take a step back and take a deeper look as to what is inspiring those feelings.
Kari and Kate discuss the cons to the mentality of eating less and exercising more for weight loss and how that can actually be working against your weight loss success. Kate shares the science behind different approaches you can take to maximize your workout and how to outsmart your metabolism.
