#55: Lamorna Hollingsworth on Women’s Nutrition, Weight Management & Modern-Day Body & Health Battles
Lamorna offers a refreshing and highly relatable perspective to the needs and struggles many ladies face when it comes to getting in shape and being healthy.
Whilst men and women are equal in every measure, and can achieve pretty much all the same things, the tone of discussion, coaching and support is often different when helping ladies achieve their health and body goals. The logical, metrics-based, obsessive nature that men can often express when they get into the training and nutrition isn’t always what women want to hear, or get motivation from. In actual fact, for many women, this can have the opposite effect. Definitely not always - but quite often. So having a female voice, a female leader, offering guidance and relatability to the AdapNation female audience is a welcome break from time to time. I’m sure you’ll agree ladies! 😉
Lamorna is Personal Trainer, highly-accredited Nutritionist and an online coach exclusively for women. She’s got a great back story, is incredibly empathetic and practical to her real-world female clients, and has establish value-first business online with her courses, programmes and facebook community. We had a great conversation, and it was truly refreshing to provide a female voice of authority onto the podcast.
