Media representations of fitness: Skinny =/= healthy
From Jonathan Sabar, a thoughtful and refreshing commentary on the distinction between skinny and healthy in women’s fitness, including a very kind shout-out to old Doctor K as well as another great link to a woman busting out 15 reps of bodyweight overhead squats. I think it’s interesting that as a male trainer, he’s been inspired by his daughter. Research suggests that a lot of men end up making very good feminist critiques as a result of raising girls and suddenly having to think about what young women have to go through. High fives Jonathan!
