This week I chat with the fabulous Jodie Arnot, anti-diet fitness professional and co-founder of the Moderation Movement. She is RAGING about the toxic, obsessive, exclusionary and downright cult-like culture of gyms. It seems like there’s no safe place for us to go and simply enjoy moving our bodies anymore: instead, we’re very likely to feel like we’ve stumbled into a weight loss centre. It’s bad for everyone, but particularly for anyone in a larger body, finding a safe space to exercise is like finding the proverbial hen’s tooth. Just what has happened to make the culture like this, and what can we do to make it better?
