cognitive behavioural therapy applied to fitness and health with Jill Bunny

I am so pleased to have Jill Bunny joining me for this episode. Jill Bunny is the owner of Fit Bunnies Fitness, functional nutritionist, elite trainer, cognitive behavior therapy clinician & speaker advocating total body health to women around the globe.

We will dive deep into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the reasons why we can find so hard to commit to a training program, why we continuously become the bottleneck in our own health journeys, why we tend to say things to ourselves that are not the kindest.

We will also talk about Jill’s own personal journey, from being the highest ranked IFBB bikini competitor (with 2 Arnold & Olympian titles) in the world and internationally renowned cover model to an MS and Cancer fighter. Jill, as a result, worked hard to unleash the healing potential within her body and win her own health battle, while helping a lot of other women to do the same.

These are the some of the topics addressed in this amazing conversation with Jill Bunny:

  • ● Jill talks about her personal and professional journey.

  • ● Applying CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to fitness.

  • ● Struggling with core beliefs.

  • ● The principles of CBT applied to women who feel they are not good enough.

  • ● Five stages of change.

  • ● Thoughts that trigger feelings.

  • ● Acceptance.

  • ● Getting back on track with grace and compassion.

  • ● Dealing with the influence of social media.

  • ● The digital detox challenge.

  • ● Jill Bunny’s retreat programs and online courses.

  • ● Nutrition and fitness need everyday practice, CBD practice requires that too.

  • Hoping that after listening to this episode you find inspiration to find mental freedom and learn to identify the core beliefs and thoughts that are getting in the way to achieve the best version of yourself. Wishing more simplicity and ease in all that you do!
