On this special episode of All About Fitness, I am a guest speaker for Dr. Natalia Petrzela's college class, Fit Nation. Dr. Petrzela is an Associate Professor of History at the New School in New York City this is the first semester Natalia is teaching Fit Nation which provides a contemporary history of how the fitness industry influences modern day life. The other guest being interviewed for Fit Nation is Shauna Harrison, PhD who, along with writing for Self Magazine as the Sweaty Professor, specializes in how physical activity promotes public health. In addition to her academic work, Shauna is also a fitness instructor, a Master Trainer for TRX (she teaches other instructors how to exercise on it) and was one of the first big fitness influencers on social media. 

This is a fun discussion led by a brilliant professor that will help you to understand how the modern fitness industry has evolved into what it is today and what you might be able to expect as we get ready to head back to the gym as the shelter-in-place orders are lifted.
