With the rise in femme love, power, and creativity it's no wonder For Every Woman was conceptualized by none other than Michele Maturo. One glance at her feed will instantly inject you with motivation be it workouts or wanderlust and her soon to be mama switch up has us all waiting on edge!
I sat down with Michele for a FEW questions to find out the deets behind the world she's creating, this is what she had to say...
1. What inspired you to start FEW?
I was looking for a platform that connected women from all walks of life that would share their tips, experiences, thoughts on health, fitness, and culture. It started to feel like everything online was an ad and disingenuous. So with that, FEW came to life because I couldn’t find what I was looking for.
2. What is your go-to workout?
HIIT workouts and resistance training make me SWEAT MY ASS OFF. I try to stay lean, while maintaining curves and I feel like my body responds the best to that combo.
3. What has been the most challenging workout while pregnant?
Initially it was all challenging! I’ve always been pretty athletic so to have my body naturally slow down and become winded more quickly frustrated me. Not to mention my balance was horrible so anything to do with a speed and balance combo I struggled with a bit.
4. How do you motivate yourself to get moving?
During pregnancy what motivates me is the health of my baby. I try my best to create a healthy home for him to grow. My doctor and trainer (trainwithjasp) also taught me that it helps significantly during labor and post-partum. I know if I work hard now that when the baby is out of me the bounce back will be way smoother too. That’s pretty motivating in itself!
5. What does health mean to you?
Good health is more than our physical body. It’s taking care of ourselves from the inside out. Being at peace spiritually, keeping our mental health in check, feeding our body the fuel it needs to function at its best - and of course - being psychically strong so we can age with grace.
6. Do you have a favorite quote?
"Trust the process."
