075: Strengthening Body & Mind Through Movement w/ Kirsty Grosart
The Grace & Grit podcast is one of the small ways I feel I can contribute to helping mend the fabric of the collective female health story. One of the topics, I feel passionate in regards to this, is educating women about how to utilize strength training and movement practices to empower the relationship they have WITH their body. So, I am always on the hunt for guests who have missions aligned with that.
Kirsty Grosart is an amazing woman, teacher and mover who helps others expand their movement possibilities far outside the scope of the traditional “fitness” industry.
In this episode, we talk about Kristy’s personal transition from competitive athlete to teacher, mindset strategies she uses on the hardest of days, how movement has elevated the level of respect she shows her body and how to build more strength, flexibility, body awareness and control.
More about today’s guest:
Kirsty grew up as a competitive gymnast but, after an elbow injury at 19, she was told that she would never do handstands again. For years, she listened to that advice, but in her 30s she learned to listen to her own body. She discovered ways to strengthen her arm, and fell in love with bodyweight training and movement again.
She started coaching when she was 19 and since then has always been drawn to it. Teaching someone to do something that they didn’t think was possible is one of her favorite things. She coaches individuals online to help them get strong, move better and gain flexibility. She also teaches classes in Toronto and workshops all over the world.
She is a NCCP level 2 gymnastics coach and a trainer with GMB Fitness.
