Show Notes

Today’s guest is a name many of you will know. Her Olympic career in the sport of diving spanned from 1991 – 2012. She was a four time Olympian, a dual Olympic Medalist, three time World Championship Silver medalist and a triple Commonwealth Games Champion.

But there’s so much more to Loudy Wiggins. She also has qualifications as a Personal Trainer, and Nutrition and Wellness Coach. She now focuses on helping women of all shapes and sizes (yep – busy women like you and me!) to reach their health and fitness goals. And as a mum of two children, she knows what it’s like to have to juggle a busy schedule in the real world and still achieve her goals.

We chat about what health and fitness can do for your mind (not just your body!) and the best way to return to fitness after having a baby.

“Slow and steady always wins the race”

We discuss:

  • Why new mums shouldn’t aim to lose weight too quickly
  • Why it’s difficult for some women to lose weight (hint: it’s not always about what you eat!)
  • Why counting calories isn’t necessary for weight loss
  • What types of exercise work best for new mums
  • The effects that stress has on our health, and the health of our unborn kids
  • Why training at 60% might be better than smashing yourself at 100%

Loudy is also a massive foodie! Find out her ninja tips for feeding a family with minimal fuss and maximum nutrition. Discover her favourite go-to meals that everyone will love.

We also have a chat about food “rewards” and why our mindset around treats has to change.

“A piece of dark chocolate goes a long long way”

If you saw the word “Olympian” and were expecting a hardcore “make-pain-your-friend” type personal trainer, well… you’re going to be sorely mistaken. Tune in and let Loudy give you a candid dose of wellness tips for ALL women, no matter what your fitness background.
