Reclaim your Rise Podcast

124. How a T1D personal trainer stopped obsessing over perfection

June 18, 2024

We’re introducing a new cohost to the Reclaim Your Rise podcast! Our Coach Manager, Abby, will be taking over the show once a month to interview coaching members and Risely coaches. Today, Abby chats with Kathy about hitting her breaking point with perfection and her decision to join Risely’s Group Coaching program. If you’ve ever thought, “Who am I to ask for help?” this episode is for you. Despite having numbers that looked good on paper, Kathy struggled with her mindset, including obsessive food and exercise thoughts, fear of complications, and avoidance of settings where she couldn’t be 100% in control. This episode will answer your questions about the enrollment + coaching process at Risely, PLUS you will walk away feeling inspired to reimagine your relationship with type one.
