"After this workshop, the use of body positive language has really stuck with me as I lead my exercise classes. I don't use phrases about looking good or burning calories, and I've started focusing comments around doing what your body enjoys and having fun! For training, I really like the suggestion of talking about the functional,(notaesthetic) benefits of exercises! Also, when Shelby asked how many of the fitness employees struggled with body image and almost every hand went up, that really blew me away! For one, I'd always I was just me who struggled with that, and secondly, if the fitness instructors are struggling with it, and we dedicate a big part of our lives to working out, then the majority of people at the gym must struggle with it too."

"The discussion aspect of the training was fantastic. The open dialogue and how it was encouraged by the trainer was very helpful in understanding the information."
