147 The Best Shoes for Healthy Feet

Are barefoot shoes best for everyone (and every foot)? And what’s the best brand of shoe if you want happy and healthy feet and ankles (and get out of pain)? The foot is complex - with 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. And while...

145 Why I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions

145 Why I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions

I think New Years Resolutions are trash. They're usually built upon the idea that there's something wrong with you - and if a decade of coaching has taught me anything, it's that changing habits doesn't happen just because you want to. So while this time of year the...

143 Does losing weight help with pain?

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. A majority of the messages in my inbox include some version of “I have pain and I know I need...

141 The Best Workout Warm Up (that isn’t stretching)

If you're still doing basic stretches before you workout or run, it's time to uplevel your game. Long held stretches (called static stretching) before you workout can actually decrease the reactivity or sensitivity of your muscles. And I get it - when we know better,...

You breathe 20k times a day, whether you're thinking about it or not - so if you're waking up with a dry mouth, experiencing brain fog, anxiety, or just feel generally "blah" - this simple breathing shift can make a big difference. I'm joined by world-renowned...

139 Trigger Points + Knots (and how to get rid of them)

139 Trigger Points + Knots (and how to get rid of them)

What is a trigger point? And is it actually a tangible thing that can be "fixed" by massaging it harder? While many people will try to tell you that you need a harder tool (or one with spikes 😳) to get rid of trigger point pain, the actual fix is a lot less...

Your Host: Alexandra Ellis

Self-Care + Wellness Coach, Body Nerd, and Creator of AE Wellness

Hi! I’m your host, Alexandra Ellis, and I’m a coach, writer, occasional yogi, kettlebell devotee, and 100% Body Nerd.

I’ve made it my life’s mission to better understand how the body works to help you take back control of your self-care, strength, and injury recovery.

With my degree in Exercise Biology, experience in physical therapy and athletic training, and almost 10 years of training people in body-weight strength and stretch programs, I now teach people in months what took me so long to figure out: how to get out of pain and get stronger and more flexible at the same time.
