episode_114-STEPHANIE_MUNDT-phitforaqueen.png

Stephanie Mundt is a physical therapist & running coach in Scottsdale, AZ. Her business Volante PT & Performance specializes in helping recovering female runners return to training & competition without fear of re-injury. Steph was a distance runner in high school & college, struggling with an eating disorder that contributed to repetitive bone stress injuries. She hopes to transform & improve the management of running-related injuries in females to foster a greater sense of resiliency & empowerment among these athletes. 

"The fear of being told to stop running has kept me & runners I know from getting help when aches or pains pop up because running is so much more than a form of exercise. It’s a way to unwind from the day or week, to push yourself harder and further than you ever thought possible, and a space where you can be truly free.  But the good news is this: with many running-related injuries, you don't have to stop - you may just need guidance in modifications while your body adapts & heals."

Sam Abbott is a registered dietitian nutritionist who helps those with PCOS ditch diets, improve insulin resistance, and balance hormones without feeling guilty or stressed about food. She runs the Instagram account @pcos.nutritionist where she gives free tips and support around PCOS nutrition education and also runs the PCOS Freedom Program – a complete program for improving hormone balance without a side of diet culture or weight stigma. Sam is passionate about empowering people with PCOS with the knowledge they need to improve their hormone imbalances and live their happiest, healthiest lives without dieting. 

"I became interested in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) after seeing client after client struggle with symptoms. I share in my clients’ frustrations when they are handed a prescription for birth control and metformin, and then they are told they need to lose weight. The “lose weight” advice is a distraction from discussing how hormones can be balanced through diet, lifestyle, and supplements."
