This week I'm joined by Carolina Belmares. Carolina is a Personal Trainer, Fitness Writer and Founder of SweatGlow Fitness.
I asked Carolina to join me on the podcast so that we could discuss the hugely important topic of Sexual Harassment in the Fitness Industry.
In August of last year several women in the industry came forward and filed sexual harassment reports about the actions of a well-known and high profile Coach, one of these women being Carolina.
The actions of this individual highlighted a major issue within the Fitness Industry and also that of society due to social conditioning when it comes to Rape Culture.
Since August of last year Carolina and several other experts at Girls Gone Strong released an important course on 'Sexual Harassment in the Fitness Industry' designed to give clear guidelines as to what is acceptable behaviour, what isn't, how sexual harassment can escalate from normalisation to explicit violence and the steps we must take, not just in the fitness industry, to stop the problem.
The Girls Gone Strong Course is a free online course that I highly suggest everyone signs up for, especially Coaches.
