At one point, fitness star Patricia Moreno was the highest paid instructor in New York City. Consistently rated as “best instructor” year after year by top media outlets and the first hire of Equinox gyms when they launched in New York City, Patricia landed her dream gig as a daily national TV fitness segment on Breakfast Time. At the time, you would have thought she was living her best life.
Yet secretly, she was depressed, anxious, and felt like a fraud, binging and purging and using methamphetamines to manage her weight. Her fear of being seen even shopping for food in public led her to many secret and shameful habits. Her mantra at the time? “Thin at any cost.”
Then, Patricia decided to change her life.
Every once in a while, we interview someone who offers so many truth bombs that we need to split it into two episodes. And, wowzers, this is one of those times! Wait until you hear what Patricia has to say about turning the fitness industry on its ear!
In part one of our interview with Patricia, she talks about shedding her “fat-phobic” mentality and devoting her life to helping people achieve their health and wellness goals in a sustainable way. She talks about how she created her unique program, IntenSati, by combining workouts with incantations and affirmations — and how she can help you to learn to love yourself and have healthier thoughts.
Trust us. You will become her newest fan after listening to this ep!
