Mel Corlett : WWO Podcast - Episode 8
Mel Corlett wants you to have faith in yourself. She spends her days at her gym - Women of Treign - showing women they have all the power and strength they 'll ever need.
I asked Mel on the show to provide our listeners with a female perspective on why working on physical strength can impact all aspects of our life - mental strength, self awareness and happiness. We also focus much of the conversation on why performance is far more important than aesthetics.
Mel's essay question is:
Though there is a change afoot. Over the generations society has conditioned women to believe that they are not strong or are in need of assistance. How do you and the Women of Treign empower women to realise their true strength?
We delve into her client's realisations around nutrition, why she had to open a gym and what her amitious goal for society is.
This was an eye opening conversation from the words of a powerful female.
