Interview with Johnena Stenske - The Self Care Trainer
It's time for another video blog interview! I just love doing these interviews because I get to connect and showcase an anti-diet professional or entrepreneur in my community. During this interview I speak to Johnena Stenske who is a weight inclusive fitness trainer who "helps women exercise for self care."
Johnena and I met in a marketing class (thanks to @yycfempreneurs) and instantly clicked because of our shared values of providing services for our clients from an anti-diet, weight inclusive approach.
As someone new to the anti-diet movement, Johnena is all in! A few short months ago, she was planning to launch a weight loss focused group training program just this summer. Once she read the book Anti Diet by Christy Harrison, everything changed.
During the interview Johnena and I speak about:
- working out for self care vs. weight loss and what that looks like compared to traditional training
- why she started her business and her own journey in (and out of) diet culture
- how to know if you're getting enough rest
- what to do if you're not motivated for a workout session
- how to find motivation if you're not working out for weight loss purposes & to set other goals for success with movement
If you are struggling figuring out how to get motivated for a workout without being driven by a weight loss goal listen in! Johnena gives some great tips. Grab your fav beverage and listen in!
