Episode 70: Move to Celebrate What Your Body Can Do with Martinus Evans

If you feel uninspired to exercise or you feel like you are not qualified to run, take a yoga class, play a sport, or whatever, because you’re too heavy, too slow, too uncoordinated, too old or too anything, this episode could change your life.  Martinus Evans, founder of the Slow AF Run Club is here to help us change our mindset about exercise, thinking about it not as a way to lose weight or win a race, but as a way to celebrate what your body is capable of at this very moment.

Martinus Evans has run over eight marathons since his doctor told him to “lose weight or die” in July 2012. Since then, he’s also coached hundreds of runners and founded the Slow AF Run Club, a community of over 20,000 members worldwide. He is also the author of the book Slow AF Run Club: The ultimate guide for anybody who wants to run.  When he’s not running races around the world, he enjoys speaking passionately about issues related to size-inclusivity, mindset, DEI and mental health.
