Would it surprise you to know that you don’t need to lose weight to get out of pain?

I frequently get messages that include something along the lines of “I know I need to lose weight but…” which breaks my heart because I believe that life without pain is possible for everyone – no matter what your body looks like or feels like right now.

We’ve been sold this idea that the pain in our joints is directly related to body mass. But time and time again – the research does not find this to be true.

You don’t need to lose weight to get out of pain.

And the idea that some amount of pain is something we have to just “live with” because of our age or body type is nonsense.

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.
