How Kate Found Real Fitness Inspiration: Saying No To Fitspo

I love Karen Browne’s work.

Kate is a PhD candidate in English Studies writing a dissertation on subjectivity in weight loss memoir that includes chapters on sideshow fat ladies, confession in Weight Watchers, fat/disabled subjectivity in Samantha Irby’s Meaty, and critical embodied pedagogy. She lives in central Illinois and her activities of choice are running, biking, powerlifting and “ya wanna do this thing with me?” She tweets @katebrowneblogs and run Ramp and Stair Exercise Club on Facebook.

She’s blogged here before on childcare as an access issue.

Here is her wonderful TED talk on loving movement and rejecting fispo.

    Thanks for posting this. I’d never seen her TED talk, and it was moving and–dare I say– inspirational. Am checking out her ramp and stair FB group.
