Disrupting Divorce: Conversations for Women

Jan 29, 2021

In this episode Rhonda talks to Shannon Vick, Personal Trainer and the Owner of Iron Fist Fitness, about fitness and taking care of your body in order to stay healthy and ready for the challenges throughout the stressful period of divorce.

Shannon points out that working out and taking care of your body is no longer an option, it is an absolute must, just like eating, drinking water or taking a shower. His recommendations for women are:

  1. Find your reason and find out your why – Figure out what you want to do and why you want to do it, and put together a plan that will take you to your goal.
  2. Focus on your inner being, focus on doing the things that you want to improve.
  3. Take small steps. Focus on a new day, on what you can accomplish on that day – take each day at the time.

Shannon gave few tips on how to stay healthy, especially in a stressful period, such as divorce:

  1. First thing in the morning - drink water, to upstart your metabolism,
  2. Take proteins to maintain your muscles,
  3. Take multivitamins to have enough energy to go through the day.
