Jim Laird on Training Women, Stress & Not Needing Crisis To Make Change


Today we made history…our first male guest! And it’s only fitting  as he is an expert in training women – and one of the reasons Sarah and I even know each other. As sweet as he is strong, it’s the one, the only: Mr. Jim Laird. Jim owns a gym in Lexington, KY and works with women of all ages to get healthy and be capable and strong in their lives. Having faced his own health crisis with Ulcerative Colitis he, like so many of us, knows what it’s like to hit the wall and have to rethink how we do everything from our training, sleep and stress to the constant pushing, pushing until something breaks and even the importance of facing our unhealthy emotions and dealing with our past.  Really, really good stuff. In this episode we hear about Jim’s group of female power lifters, the Miss Fits (who are absolutely amazing), we meander through a range of female hormone issues (missing gallbladder anyone??) and Jim gives us his best tips for getting women in their healthiest, best shape…and they may surprise you.
