Wow, episode 16 already? This is the first time that someone has come to me to ask me to be on my podcast, and I was so honored! She and I had been at the same place at the same time – Blogfest, but never met! After I asked her what Bold Moves she had made that she’d like to talk about, her long list made me feel that she was more than qualified for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 17: Linda Mitchell!
This was not her first podcast interview, so she made my life easy by sending over her bio!
Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. She collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best-Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”. Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.
Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”
Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.

I hope you’re as impressed as I am!
Of course, for Linda’s book recommendations*, she recommends her own book, The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T. – Strong Women Empowering Achieving Together, which you can win below.
We both share an appreciation for Lewis Howes’ book, The School of Greatness!
In a strange turn of events, I actually met him at the same event Linda and I both attended!
Since she missed him at Blogfest, she was able to check out his event, the Summit of Greatness. We talk about her experience there in our interview, and she references her blog post about it. Here that is!
