What does being healthy really mean? For many of us, being active and exercising regularly would be part of that definition – so then why do so few of us actually live that way? What’s going on inside our culture that stops women, in particular, from staying active and engaging in sports once we’re no longer in school?

This is exactly what my guest and I get into on today’s episode.

Here’s where you can listen in to our conversation:

Nicola Mercer is one of the coaches on my team — she works with me inside the Wellness Coach Academy, supporting all our students and new coaches as they’re building their businesses – and before coming onto my team, she was actually a student herself inside my program, and became a certified coach through WCA. 

But before THAT, she was a corporate girl, working for Nike for 20 years.

Nicola learned a lot when she worked at Nike, about the power of taking care of both your body and mind and also why, as adults, we have a responsibility to normalize healthy living for the younger generation.

We get into all of these topics and more in today’s conversation.

What’s Stopping You From Living An Active Life?

I hope you enjoyed sitting in on my conversation with Nicola. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what we discussed, and I’m curious – is exercise a regular part of your life? Do you move your body on a regular basis? And if you do, I would really love to know why you do. As Nicola and I were talking about, it’s really interesting that some of us exercise regularly and some of us don’t – even though we know we should – and I’m just personally interested to hear more about why that is.
