Welcome to the Redefining Health & Wellness podcast!
I'm Shohreh Davoodi, and for the past several months, I've been pouring most of my time and energy into bringing this podcast to life. I'm a certified intuitive eating counselor and a certified personal trainer. I work with clients online to help them improve their relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies.
Back when I first started my business, I was more of a “typical” personal trainer and nutrition coach. I was expected to focus on helping clients change their bodies, and I didn't yet know about concepts like Health At Every Size©, diet culture, healthism, etc.
Since then, I've realized that health and wellness look different on everybody (and every body). But we live in a culture where health and wellness are expected to look one way for everyone, even though most people can't fit themselves into that very limited and privileged mold.
My goal with this podcast is to let people know that they get to define health and wellness for themselves over the course of their lives and that their definitions will change over time. The podcast will explore myths and misconceptions about health and wellness and the many different things that contribute to them while showcasing guests sharing their own lived experiences with health and well-being.
