P.Volve Founder Rachel Katzman on Life with Lyme
Traditional fitness isn’t always exciting. ????
Rachel Katzman didn’t like working out either…
…until she found a whole different approach more focused on functional movement that is both high intensity AND low impact. ????
Now, she’s the co-founder of P.volve, an omnichannel fitness brand with a global on-demand platform, a growing line of patented equipment and attention from Vogue, The Today Show, and Vanity Fair.
What I found really interesting about our conversation today was finding out about Rachel’s recent Lyme disease diagnosis and learning how she’s built this incredible company, while also dealing with this health diagnosis. It’s an inspiring conversation to say the least.
We also dive into so much more including:
???? How she became somebody who actually likes to workout now.
???? All about Pvolve – the workout that changed everything for her!
???? How she balances it all (and still finds time for self-care!)
???? Her best tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle (even with the impacts of COVID!)
