by Redefining Strength | FHP 021: Jamie King of Flex and Flow Yoga and Fit Approach

Jamie King
Lifelong athlete, Jamie King, founded Flex & Flow Yoga to help others embrace their inner athlete and find joy in movement, sweat and community. As an avid yogi, competitive ultra runner, snowboarder and former tennis player, Jamie is no stranger to a good sweat session or tough workout. She believes in challenging herself and others to be the best they can be and building people up through community, movement, laughter and friendship.

Jamie developed the Flex & Flow HIIT Yoga workout to provide people with an efficient and fun way to get heart rates up, blood pumping and energy flowing. She is also the founder of the Fit Approach community, a popular online fitness community where bloggers, brands and fitness enthusiasts come together over their love for sweat and their #sweatpink lifestyle.

1. Find a need and then meet people where they are at! Even while YOU may know something is good for them, you may have to show them WHY and HOW it will actually help.

2. Practice what you preach and continually learn!

3. Don’t be afraid to combine different things. Using hybrid workouts!

In this episode we talk with Jamie King the co-founder of Flex and Flow Yoga, Fit Approach and SweatGuru. Jamie considers herself a “dabbler.” She enjoys experimenting and learning and trying out all things fitness, which led her to create not only a unique yoga studio, Flex and Flow, but also a unique HIIT Yoga class. She reminds us of the importance of making exercise really accessible so that you can not only give people what they think they want, but also what they truly need.

Jamie discusses the importance of having a variety of offerings and building a community to help not only get people results, but also make them want to be there. She reminds us that you can’t only teach, but you must also practice and BELIEVE in what you are doing.
