 I loved so much in this episode that I can’t wait to share it with all of you. First, I just want to acknowledge how much I appreciated Zlata’s transparency, openness, sincerity, and desire to help other women.  

My biggest ah ha moment during the podcast was when,

Zlata said “We are emotional eaters because we live silent lives.” Wow, just wow.

Many of the things in this episode will resonate with so many of us. I know in my studio these have been hot topics lately. Zlata inspired me so much, that this interview was a gift. I hope you all have as many aha moments as I did.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Food freedom.
  • Freeing yourself from food prison.
  • Creating trust with your body.
  • Slowing down helps us to get in touch with our emotions.
  • Recognizing when you are in your masculine or feminine energy.
  • Why connection is so important
  • What it means to be SEXYFIT

I have a confession to make after this episode I have eaten out of Tupperware much less and tried to make my meals more of an experience. I have not yet had the best chocolate cake she mentioned, but I have definitely received the message she was trying to convey.

Please be sure to check out Zlata’s new book The SEXYFIT METHOD it’s so worth the read.

Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
