Rethinking Movement Outside of the Gym

  •  Season 1, Episode 19

In this episode, host Sandy Webster touches base with biomechanist Katy Bowman, a bestselling author, speaker, and a leader of the “Movement movement,” who is changing the way we move, and think about our need for movement. Her 9 books have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide.

Katy, who has written for IDEA’s Fitness Journal and educated fit pros at IDEA events for over a decade, teaches movement and speaks about “sedentarism” and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences all over the globe. Her work has been regularly featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, the Joe Rogan Experience, and Good Housekeeping.

Our conversation is focused on the tenets of her newest book Grow Wild: The Whole-Child, Whole-Family, Nature Rich Guide to Moving More.” The book has some rich lessons not just for moms, dads and kids, but for fitness pros who are open to new and simple ways to add more movement to their clients’ lives outside of the gym. Stay with us to get a healthy dose of her original thinking.
