Episode 68: The RBG Workout with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Trainer Bryant Johnson
In this fitness-focused episode, my friend Bernie (former Biggest Loser “winner” and chronic dieter) and I get into a heated argument about his former trainer Bob Harper’s recent appearance on Megyn Kelly TODAY about weight shame.
I think it’s ridiculous that Bob somehow thinks applying “firm kindness” to higher weight people is actually helpful caregiving. I’m mostly irritated with the segment because it would have been a wonderful opportunity for a Health at Every Size advocate to discuss the value of weight inclusivity and the harms of dieting in weight cycling and raising BMI. Watch the clip here and decide for yourself.
Don’t miss our fun interview with Bryant Johnson, a trainer I wholeheartedly recommend because he works with the Justice of my dreams, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Bryant’s new book RBG Workout is a handy tool for people who want practical, easy-to-follow movements and no-nonsense advice for strength, flexibility, and mindset for consistent movement.
