If you’re ready to get started with weights or redefine your relationship with strength training — today’s episode is for you. I’m joined by the incredible Allison Tenney (@allisontenney).

As a former D1 Athlete and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Allison totally gets the “all or nothing” mentality that so often sabotages our progress (especially when you’re an overachiever perfectionist like me!).

And while I thought this would be a conversation on how to get started with strength training (which it is), we go so much deeper.

I’ve been a proud member of her coaching program, The Den, for the last 2 years and have been loving the strength I’ve built because of it.

A little bit every day is enough to maintain your body so you can forget about soreness, tension and pain. Movement Mavens is the only program of it’s kind that not only teaches you how to maintain your body and move well, but also helps you craft your personalized plan so you can build sustainable strength, consistently.
