Tori Anderson & Renee McCurdy December 6, 2021

Lauren MacLeod is a registered dietician nutritionist that specializes in outdoor sports nutrition. With special interests in combating diet culture, eating disorders and disordered eating amongst outdoor athletes, we scratch the surface of what this looks like in our communities. Within the outdoor industry, body ideals manifest themselves in clothing offerings, mountain town cultures, brand marketing, etc. Hopefully this episode offers some “food for thought” to help shape the ways that we define an athlete, what we consider to be fit, and how we associate decisions with food.  Instagram: @themountaindietitian Website: www.laurenmacleodrd.com Accounts suggested by Lauren: @notyouraveragenutritionist @outdoor_womens_wellness @black.nutritionist @golden.guts.nutrition […]

Big Stick Energy – E11 – Girls and Gear: Why We Need Stiffer Boots and What Atomic is Doing About It – Matthew Manser

This episode we sat down with Atomics head boot designer, Matthew Manser, to chat about their new Hawx Ultra XTD 130 flex boot in a true 22.5 and 23.5 shell fit. Why does this matter? Because a boot this stiff has never existed for women outside of ski racing. The right boots can make or break your experience on the mountain and it can be a huge pain to find the right boot, especially when womens boots have previously had a glass ceiling for flex, innovation and performance. We also chat about finding the right boot for you, what you […]
