Today we’re joined by a badass, mom of 3, personal trainer, and CrossFit athlete – Emily Breeze. Emily’s built her career up around this motto: you don’t have to be fit to start, but you have to start to be fit. Her followers have come to love her for her real, authentic, and honest take on how to incorporate fitness into your everyday life.
As a mom of two with one on the way, I’m super passionate about what it looks like to stay fit as a mom. Emily shares that for her to be a happy mother and wife, she needs that 30 – 60 minutes to sweat every day. But, Emily also believes that the world is our playground when it comes to working out and she shares tons of inspiration on how you can fit that workout in nearly anywhere. It’s so easy to forget that working out is simply movement. Emily reminds us how important it is to find the movement that works for you, whatever that may look like.
With three kiddos under the age of three, Emily also has lots of perspective on motherhood, pregnancy, and where fitness fits into all of that. We chat about the fitness shaming that too often goes on when women choose to have a super active pregnancy, as well as how quickly society expects women to bounce back. Emily also shares her experience with c-sections and some of the treatments she’s done to help heal scar tissue and get movement patterns back to where they were before pregnancy.
All in all, Emily reminded us that wellness is truly about balance and finding what works for you. We chatted lots about motherhood and pregnancy, but so much of Emily’s advice is relevant for everyone – to move forward with a healthy lifestyle you just have to put one foot forward and then the next.
