Description

I coach women lifestyle habits over diet culture! I want women to make long-term, sustainable habits, and lifestyle changes because I'm sick of diet culture! I'm sick of the body image dysmorphia, the starving-yourself-culture for the "gram", 6-week programs that only let you down, and coaches who don't care about you but just want a buck. My aim is to create conversations, better conversations because if we don't talk about the issues, problems, and questions we have nothing changes, nothing gets better. Everything I discuss on the show is for information purposes only and does not constitute medical, legal, or financial advice.

Powerlifting, something I found when I needed it most and I didn't even know. It's now part of who I am, I don't know who I am if I can't squat, bench and deadlift!Powerlifting has changed my outlook of myself and how I see my body. It's been incredibly empowering for me in body confidence, mental grit i.e. resilience and it’s changed how I perceive my ability to do something - I know I can do anything I set my mind to. It's also been incredible for my female clients, it's such a useful tool that unknowingly lifting heavy makes them feel powerful and love themselves more for it. Not to mention they get excited to train, they don't drag themselves to the gym unless it's ya know, ... period week (us females can relate!).Powerlifting is special to me and I've grown to realise that more and more of late being back in the gym after the 7 month lockdown here in Melbourne 2020.I will compete in my second powerlifting comp February 20th 2021 and looking to hit some big numbers and a total of over 300kg... I'm SO EXCITED! BRING IT.Stay tuned on my socials @raquelfitpt for powerlifitng comp updates!I hope you enjoy this episode!Follow the show for all updates on Spotify and iTunes and don't hesitate to leave an iTunes review!@raquelfitpt@thefemalehealthshowThis is for information purposes only, the advice in this episode is for general purposes only.
Healthy conversations with the ever so wise and lovely Kara - we cover all sorts of topics in this one like;-  stereotypes and the rabbit hole - chasing who you want to be won't get you there faster- uncomfortable situations are facilitators of change- pain is good sometimes- how disconnected we are to each other as humans - the importance of eye contact- making friends as adults- dating yourself first- how to talk to toxic people- who is a narcissist - your reach has the ability to positively or negatively influence those around you And so much more.It is a bit glitchy sometimes due to the internet connection but it fixes itself quickly!Pause and come back to the episode the juicy stuff is the entire way through! Lastly, people don't like having uncomfortable conversations - this is normal, so we wanted to have this conversation so you can navigate your own life a little easier with our healthy conversation around this general life stuff!Find Kara on Instagram:@justschenkyFollow the show for all updates on Spotify and iTunes and don't hesitate to leave an iTunes review!@raquelfitpt@thefemalehealthshowThis is for information purposes only, the advice in this episode is for general purposes only.
Move in nature, without distraction, without feeling like you deserve to scroll through social media for the 10 minutes of work you did that you hated, if we can look into someone's eyes and really listen to them, rather than thinking about ourselves then maybe we can connect better to ourselves. Emotion is energy in motion.A widely used definition of stressful situations is one in which the demands of the situation threaten to exceed the resources of the individual (Lazarus & Folkman 1984). It is clear that all of us are exposed to stressful situations at the societal, community, and interpersonal level. How we meet these challenges will tell us about the health of our society and ourselves.2005 Paper: STRESS AND HEALTH: Psychological, Behavioral, and Biological Determinants (2005): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2568977/Book recommendation: Sarah Wilson, The One Wild and Precious LifeFollow the show for all updates on Spotify and iTunes and don't hesitate to leave an iTunes review!@raquelfitpt@thefemalehealthshowThis is for information purposes only, the advice in this episode is for general purposes only.
Cheating has a very negative connotation and when we attach this to food it’s not helpful either. When you think about a cheat meal or a cheat day what are you really saying to your mind and body?What are the messages that relay between gut to brain and brain to gut?Some of the thoughts around a cheat meal or day are similar to:It's my body I do what I wantWhy not? You only live once right?It’s just one day a week! Who cares!I got a little heated in this episode - I don't agree with the online fitness industry that so many of us have been sold. You don't need another cheat meal.I want this year to be an epic year of growth for women in the health space to stop gawking at hot, shredded women and understand that this is not natural and what you see is a fraction of the life this person you idealize lives.Follow the show for all updates on Spotify and iTunes and don't hesitate to leave an iTunes review!@raquelfitpt@thefemalehealthshowThis is for information purposes only, the advice in this episode is for general purposes only.

What is getting into alignment?It's understanding your body's response to events, situations, people, food, exercise. It's understanding what is a HELL YES versus a HELL NO.Personally, I think the days that are harder or feel harder are necessary and are trying to push us forwards, it’s there to help us grow. Even if it doesn’t feel like it is.When things are always good, we take life for granted.LIFE is full of problems where we end up asking “why is this happening to me?” when in fact we can reframe it to “what is the purpose of this experience right now?” PERSONAL TRAINING UPDATE: I have hired a trainer as part of RAQUELFITPT now and she’s awesome so if you're after personal training, not some airy-fairy generic program off the internet and some diet meal plan, please contact me directly at raquelfitpt@gmail.com or send me  DM via Instagram and let me know so we can set up a free consult and see if the shoe fits for us both!Follow the show for all updates on Spotify and iTunes and don't hesitate to leave an iTunes review!@raquelfitpt@thefemalehealthshowThis is for information purposes only, the advice in this episode is for general purposes only.
I’ve said it before, food is a bonding experience for humans, it brings people together and always has since the time of mankind. We need it to survive, BUT now it’s very much a luxury we indulge in and bond over with people so we need to know how to manage ourselves at these times!"It’s about consistency, 300 days of consistency is better than 300 days of not trying"What did you think about these tips?

PERSISTANCE: continuing a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.Basically, KEEP ON GOING! Don’t quit when it gets hard.All things in life, or at least at some point in life there is going to be some element of struggle.You are not going to be winning or at least feeling like every single day is amazing and that’s okay. That is completely normal.Pain and pressure is a part of life - life will get hard even awkward occasionally. That’s just part of being a human. So we might as well accept it and just learn from each encounter and experience.Ultimately I just want you to know you DESERVE SUCCESS. You DESERVE LIFE SATISFACTION!!! Stop talking yourself out of things because you’re scared of what people will say, what they will think, what could go wrong - it’s all self-sabotage and you are literally AVOIDING GROWTH!!!Don't forget to subscribe to the show, leave a review on iTunes, and share with a friend who needs to hear this!

Reflection is so important and the key to improving year after year as a humanIt’s not just about a new years eve resolutionAs humans, we have to evolve.If we don’t, you often get depressed and anxious humans.These days more than ever, the human experience is heavily influenced by creating the life you want, that you’ve always wanted - there so many ways to live and create opportunities now.BUT do you know what you actually want? And if you do, are you actually working towards it?Don't forget to subscribe to the show, leave a review on iTunes, and share with a friend who needs to hear this!

Episode 23 hitting you with important things to consider when it comes to perception and action - a booking reading of Ryan Holiday 'The Obstacle is the Way'. This book has been an incredible resource in keeping my mental frame sharp as I have been going through many changes.Obstacles are instructions, mistakes are training. Personally and in Business, my life is hectic. If you feel the same and you can't manage your mind in the midst of things it becomes chaotic and as you will hear me describe often the mismanaged mind becomes far more turbulent than it is helpful.FYI: My episodes will only be once a week as I get busier towards the back end of this year with Christmas and getting on my new Coach with RAQUELFITPT.Don't forget to subscribe to the show, leave a review on iTunes, and share with a friend who needs to hear this!

Full blessing by Jordan to speak about this on my podcast.Relationships take work. Our relationship was beautiful and tumultuous. We love each other so much and our connection runs deep. But, we realised that our relationship was dysfunctional more times than not. We have so much more LIFE and LOVE to lead and we are open to life and we know that we are loved, we are supported and the way we are as humans - we are invested in creating the life we both want.Communication builds trust and connection.Pain is a motivator and it's that fire in your tummy that is telling you to change.It's okay to want more for yourself.If anyone judges you - they are the problem. Not you.I hope this brings light to a conversation we don't really hear a lot about or see.

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP https://www.facebook.com/groups/thefemalehealthshowcommunitypodcastgroupEEstrogen is fantastic for skin, fertile mucus, libido, hitting PBs in the gym and mood regulation BUT if progesterone can't balance out estrogen then this ^^^ is what you get ladiesDid you know there is more than 1 type of estrogen?There is estradiol which is produced in the follicles and plays a large roleEstrone is manufactured in the ovaries and fat tissuesEstriol, a weaker estrogen form promoting uterus growthAnd there a also other estrogen metabolites in the gutToo much estrogen = what is listed in the pic ^Did you know?Regular 💩💩 movements support estrogen cleareance! If you aren't going regularly and constipated the toxic wastes sit in your GI tract and can be re-uptaked by your gut and just circle back through.... which equals more estrogen in the blood stream requiring to be filtered out again..Science is amazing 🤓IG show account: @thefemalehealthshowPersonal account: @raquelfitpt
JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP https://www.facebook.com/groups/thefemalehealthshowcommunitypodcastgroupSHOW NOTESInterview I referred to in podcast: Tim Ferris Interviews Esther Perel episode #418; https://tim.blog/2020/04/02/esther-perel-relationships-in-quarantine/?fbclid=IwAR34p3deDsmVO0w9m1Bgb8as3VGecEDghuw3PbJCUTSridTj443uohKRABwIf you feel like there’s a time-clock on your life - well I don’t have any words of wisdom to save you from the reality that is, time is tickingIf that makes you feel uncomfortable, scared or panicky in any way - we need to address this first.Show ideas that I discussDefine SuccessStop waiting for things to changePROGRESS IS THE KEY INGREDIENT TO HUMAN DEVELOPMENT What expectations do you have for yourself that are not realistic?How do you actually find and define success? How to use fear to progressWhat holds us back from progress?Emotion.Take this for example  You're in the gym training, your program says 12 reps but by rep 8 your body is burning and is telling you to “stop”If you stop - this is emotional and you don’t exactly get the progressIf you keep going as per the program and reach rep 12 - you now get the progress.Do you want the emotion or the progress?Sounds like a very simple concept but in fact that’s exactly what happens in life, you see some of these people on Dr Phil - I’ve had a bit of down time to watch some Dr Phill here and there in iso and I was watching this 45 or 50 year old man, telling Dr Phil he couldn’t get out of bed, and his mum was supplying everything for him even cleaning his room…. He chose not to get out of bed.He chose to let his break up define his life and so if you really want to change your reality you have to change your perspectiveAnd get uncomfortableIf not now... when?When is a good time for you to change? why then?Define clearly what you are afraid of because you can work backwards from here.So, what's holding you back?Personal IG: @raquelfitpt
Today's episode is a quick one - it's inspired by the conversations I've been having this week. I'm challenging your thoughts about seeing and getting 'fitness model' body composition changes - a lot of women think this is sustainable and YEAR LONG MAINTAINABLE. I was one of them. So I get it, but I want to change that narrative.If your goal doesn't make sense to yourself - and you're not willing to make sacrifices and changes to get towards your goal then how will it actually happen at all!I want this episode to inspire better understanding of your goals AND what it takes to push to the next level, like, "fitness model" changes.I discuss:- "Red flag" goal setting- Attaining significant body composition changes - the "fitness model" look- Restriction behaviours for drastic body composition changes- Accountability is necessary- Balance - can you really have the best of both worlds? FOLLOW THE SHOW @thefemalehealthshow PERSONAL ACCOUNT @raquelfitpt
