You can almost guess by her name that Zlata Sushchik has an interesting story. Immigrating from Russia to Alaska as a teen, and new to the English language, she stumbled into a saving grace when a friend convinced her to join a bodybuilding competition.
She went on the win many titles, and learned a lot about nutrition, fitness and motivation along the way. She now runs an online coaching business called SexyFit which has helped many women lose weight and feel great in a healthy way.
I consider myself a half-way fit person, but I know very little about the best ways to work out in comparison to Zlata. She shares in this interview a comparison of different work out methods, and some advanced ways to approach your gym work out.
She also shares her views on food, which include not being too rigid, eating whole foods, and avoiding scammy weight loss products. She has also learned that in order to really get fit and lose weight, you need to identify your 'big why' to keep yourself motivated.
Having burned out her adrenals in the early years of her competition days, she had to cut back on exercise a lot to recover. So she is well versed in meeting women where they are, and choosing the right exercise for each stage.
I really enjoyed this interview with Zlata, and I know you will too!

Holly Morello is a mother of three boys, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a certified GAPS diet practitioner. She is also a project manager for author and health coach Diane San Filippo.
As she tried to help her youngest son's health through nutrition, she began to blame herself when outcomes were not as good as expected. She struggled with how much her family got involved, with public eating settings, and with isolating herself.
She comes clean on this episode about all she went through, and how she came out on the other side.
She also shares how simply being on a wrong type of diet (a low-fat diet) contributed to the lack of results for her son's health.
In the end she re-connected with her family, her kids actually chose to get on board with dietary changes (more in the healthy fats/ whole foods camp), and her kids' health improved.
She now has a much healthier attitude about food and family and has "ditched the perfectionism."
If you are a parent struggling with how to feed your kids, or being hard on yourself because of your kids' health, please listen in and you won't feel alone.
