In this episode, Nikki chats with sports nutritionist and strength coach Steph Gaudreau about the benefits and differences between strength training and Pilates and why you may not want to use them interchangably.

They discuss:

  • The issues with how fitness is marketed to women and how it influences our choices
  • What is required to build strength, muscle, and bone density and if Pilates can meet these requirements in place of strength training
  • The primary differences between programming and resistance options in Pilates and strength training and why these things matter.
  • The importance of strength training for women over 40 and misconceptions around low impact exercise and "safety."
