Episode 51:Critical Thought about Community and Empowerment with Allison Tenney

On today’s episode of To Birth and Beyond, we talk with Allison Tenney, an online fitness professional and organizer of the Ignited Womxn Summit! We tackle a few shifts that the fitness industry is in desperate need of – ALL areas and industries, to be frank – and how perspective changes have affected Allison’s parenting, business, life, and sometimes, her ego.

Allison also shares the details for the upcoming 3rd Ignited Womxn Summit in Seattle, including how it evolved into the full day phenomenon that it is today! Grab your tickets now – sales end on 2/1!
