Austin Nichols & Samantha Curbelo: From Being Bullied To Building A Fitness Empire

Join Patti Katter with her guests, Austin Nichols and Samantha Curbelo, as they talk about how they were bullied in their childhood because of their bodies that led them to pursue the road to fitness. Austin and Samantha were both on the heavyweight side in their early stages of life, attracting attention from bullies. Because of that experience, they strived to convert fat to muscle and are presently helping others achieve that too with their company, AS Fitness Coaching. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect in this episode:

· Fat-shaming: a common form of bullying

· Body perception influenced by social media

· Dealing with bullying through lifestyle changes

· Diets are a waste of time!

· Red flags that wave bullying in children

· And so much more!
