This week we are joined by pro athlete and women’s fitness expert Lisa MacDonald. Lisa’s interest in women’s health and fitness started during her own athletic upbringing in equestrian sport. She moved into the fitness industry through the painful all-in-one exercise of kettlebells. Her story of how her body image has adapted and changed through her journey is so inspiring and she is very candid on her social media about the struggles so many women face when it comes to their self image and confidence. Lisa was not sure she wanted to have children when she got pregnant for the first time, and just like other women we have interviewed who felt this way, once she had her son Jax she knew it was the best thing to ever happen to her. So much so that she had another! Lisa has risen to become a leading expert when it comes to pregnancy and postpartum fitness, especially in weightlifting. She reveals some excellent tips for women looking to continue to lift weights during pregnancy and how to build back up after childbirth.
