Sam likes being called “stronger and wiser”

Thanks to Paul Forrest (Media Design Producer) and Sandra Sabatini (Manager, Research and Communications) who made this great video for the College of Arts at Guelph. I like its title!

“Dr. Samantha Brennan’s latest book, co-authored with Tracy Isaacs, makes the case for a feminist approach to fitness. Called “Fit at Midlife: A Feminist Journey,” it offers a new approach to fitness―one that champions strength, health, and personal accomplishment over weight loss and aesthetics. They share their own experiences of getting active later in life and explore the many challenges, questions, and issues women face when seeking fitness in their forties, fifties, and beyond. Drawing from the latest research and their popular blog Fit Is a Feminist Issue, they deliver concrete advice on everything from how to keep bones strong to what types of fitness activities give the biggest returns.Taking a feminist perspective, the authors also challenge society’s default whats, whys, and hows of every aspect of getting fit to show how women can best take charge of their health―no matter what their shape, size, age, or ability.”
