Hannah Eden Q&A
Hannah, how do you help people find meaning and purpose in their fitness journey through your coaching style?
“My coaching philosophy is about finding reason and purpose in your fitness journey. Knowing your motivations helps you align your goals with what truly matters to you. I also believe in taking a balanced and sustainable approach. It’s not just about numbers like distance or speed. It’s about being present in the moment, paying attention to how your body feels, and enjoying the process.”
Have you faced any challenges on your fitness journey? If so, how did you overcome them?
“Definitely! One major hurdle was dealing with an injury that temporarily halted my intense workouts. It was frustrating because I had to take a break from my usual routine, which affected both my physical and mental well-being. To overcome this, I had to adopt a patient and flexible mindset. I focused on finding alternative activities that suited my injury and sought guidance from physical therapists and sports medicine experts. Overall, navigating setbacks in fitness requires patience, adaptability, and seeking support when needed.”
How has your fitness journey shaped how you coach and support the iFIT Community?
“I’ve faced challenges, hit plateaus, and struggled with motivation, just like many people out there. But those experiences have given me empathy and a deep understanding of what it’s like to be on this fitness rollercoaster. When I coach and support the iFIT Community, I draw upon those personal experiences to connect with others. I know firsthand how important it is to have someone in your corner who understands what you’re going through. I strive to create a supportive and non-judgmental environment where people feel comfortable sharing their struggles and celebrating their victories.”
Can you share a memorable moment from your new series?
“During filming for Pines to Peaks Part 4: California, we were exploring Sequoia National Park, and let me tell you, it was mind-blowing! Picture this: jogging amidst these massive sequoia trees, feeling like you’ve stepped into a fantasy world. It was straight-up awe-inspiring. And here’s the kicker: all of this is right here in the good ol’ USA! Can you believe it? We have these jaw-dropping national parks in our own backyard. It’s like having a front-row seat to Mother Nature’s greatest hits.”
Hannah Eden’s Expert Tips
If you want to dive into hiking or biking but feel a little lost on where and how to begin, don’t sweat it! Hannah’s got some awesome tips to help get you started:
- Don’t be afraid to start with “beginner-friendly” options. “Start with shorter hikes, gentle jogs, or easy bike rides to build up your stamina and confidence. Take it easy and gradually build up your distance and intensity as you get more comfortable.”
