I sat down with Zoe Levine, founder of The Thriving Body, MELT instructor, dancer, mother of 2- and the woman who gave me my first ever personal training job in New York City!

We talked about how to fit movement and exercise into our busy lives, no matter if we have time to get to the gym or not!

Zoe gives us so many simple and actionable tools in this conversation!


Plus, we go over: 

~ (1:25) The difference between movement and exercise, and how to fit it in your life

~ (9:05) Exercises you can do to maintain vital movement and mobility

~ (14:37) How loss of movement affects our entire body’s alignment

~ (16:10) Changing your environment to change your behavior

~ (18:45) 4 ways to work movement vitamins into your life


 *Don’t miss some exercises that you can do right along with us at 9:05

 We'd love to hear how it goes, so share with us in a comment below: 

~ Which of the tools that she mentioned will you implement today?
