In this episode, Kathleen shares her story as a teen feeling depressed and not wanting to get out of bed or go to gym class, not liking sports, and then how her Mother shared with her that movement is non-negotiable, you need to find something that you like! This started Kathleen on a path of building on that start, getting stronger, fitter and eventually going into the fitness industry as a career, helping others create their own unique path, meeting them where they are at, and setting up systems, to ensure habits are formed and neurology is built so that pretty soon, you don’t even have to think about it anymore, you just do it! It doesn’t have to be hard, you just need to know how to make it easy! Tune in and learn from all that Kathleen has to share.
