Exercising After Illness: The Best Program To Gain Strength and Health

On a daily basis, I work with women around the globe dealing with illness. Although I specialize in eating disorder recovery, I help women overcome other health issues, as well. After battling health issues such as eating disorders, adrenal fatigue, and autoimmune diseases such as hypothyroidism, the majority of my clients are eager to get back into working out, but are also fearful at the same time.

I understand this fear because I once felt it, too…

To be honest, I wasn’t ever really into working out until after recovering from my eating disorder. Prior to battling anorexia, I was a dancer and also enjoyed swimming and biking, however, I never took part in scheduled workouts and I never ever went to the gym.

After my eating disorder, however, when I was living in London going to university, I had access to the campus gym and that’s when my love for lifting weights began.

In addition to feeling totally clueless in the gym (I had no idea how to design a workout program or which exercises I should be doing), I also felt quite a bit of fear when I began working out. I knew I was healthy enough (and was given the thumbs up from my doctors) to workout, but there was still quite a bit of fear within me as I didn’t want to go too hard or do too much all at once and take a few steps back in my health progress.

Looking back, I wish I had a workout program to follow that was gentle enough for me to follow that wouldn’t hinder my progress, but effective enough that I could build strength and feel good about what I was doing all at the same time. A balance like that is sometimes really hard to achieve!

Today, I am really excited to introduce you to a program that I had those many years ago when I first started strength training after recovering from my illness. Shawn Mynar of Well Belly (and my podcast partner) has recently launched her latest program called “Health in Strength”.

Shawn’s program includes everything I wish I had years ago when first starting my strength journey. It is a 4 week program that focuses on building strength while maintaining and improving your health. It incorporates an appropriate amount of strength workouts along with restorative practices, as well.

It’s everything you need to achieve balance, strength, and health after recovering from an illness.

Shawn created this program due to her personal experience of battling several autoimmune diseases that left her feeling very fatigued and weak. With her knowledge as a personal trainer and along with her experience as a nutritionist and autoimmune disease fighter, she was able to create this life changing program for everyone feeling fearful of exercise post illness.

I want to help you eliminate your life from fear. If you know anything about me, I believe there is no room for fear in our life. I want everyone I come into contact with to be blessed with freedom and feel strong and capable in the skin they’re in, which is why I am sharing this workout program with you today.
