S2 - Ep 6 - Talking with Frontline Optimists - Hero’s Journey Fitness founders
When self professed nerds Christy Black and David Nett felt a little out of place in traditional gyms, they decided to create their own inclusive space where all bodies - and minds - could feel that they belong. Hero’s Journey is Los Angeles’ first fitness space specifically designed for the “geek community”, and it feels like part of a broader cultural change that embraces individuality and non-conformist ways of being. Christy and David discuss how their compassionate coaching approach eschews the body shame and competition that fuels much of the fitness industry. And if you want an anime figure skating themed workout? No problem. Capes are optional.
