Racism and Diversity in Health and Wellness - Chrissy King
Show Notes

Are you ready to join me in a stretching routine? Now I’m not talking about stretching our muscles – I’m talking our minds. Look around your gym, your running club and cycling friends, or your social media connections – does everyone look and sound like you? And hey – I’ll be the first to admit as a middle-age, middle-class white guy that I’m the LAST person in the world to provide any insights about diversity in the world of health and wellness. Fortunately, we found just the person who is and you are going to love the perspective and insights she brings to the discussion. 

Welcome to the latest episode of the Catalyst Health, Wellness & Performance Coaching Podcast.  Today’s guest is writer, speaker, strength coach and educator Chrissy King. She has dual degrees in Social Justice and Sociology and has been featured in SELF, SHAPE, Health, Cosmopolitan, BuzzFeed, Muscle and Fitness, and Livestrong, among others. In addition to discussing racism and diversity in health and wellness, she also touches on body neutrality and more.
