‘Ideas to Consider- The Intern Speaks’

Samantha Medved – Episode 683

Full disclosure- I have known Sam since she was a Sophomore in college and now that she is a graduate from the Michigan State Universities Kinesiology program, with a minor in Health Promotion, she really knows her stuff. Both the science and the physical sides of human movement, she has major chops. We are fortunate to have her.

Sam was tremendously influential in getting my hard-headed, know-it-all self to change my training regimen. This physical change (look at my ‘Quest to 60’ posts on social media) are a direct attribute to Sam and her coaching me.

Samantha is a rising star in the fitness world and you will not find a better coach, in my humble opinion, to men and women. For consultation, coaching, speaking please email

Why listen to this episode-

  • Samantha Medved is one of the smartest, driven, grittiest fitness professionals I know.

  • Sam is a key collaborator on the Generation Us book (Be Respectful is her essay contribution). She is a major contributor to my Generation Us webinar, and the speaking engagements.

  • Sam is a co-developer and instructor of the ‘Core Strong’ group fitness program at MSU

  • Filtering through the misinformation of the Internet is Samantha’s thing, and she talks about it. Parents and college, lifting, eating plus,,,,

  • Fad Diets and her takeaway on why they are a big no-no. The 80/20 perspective

  • Being active, just move, ESPM baby!

  • Sams ‘BeIsms’ she wanted to share- ‘Be Loving’, because it’s important for us to put the love out there and ‘Be Courageous’ because she needed to become more courageous (thank you Karri)

  • Finding a good fit in fitness, women and lifting.

  • How young people consume their media, filtering and finding quality content, for example Meg (‘megsquats’) Gallagher
