Michelle Steinke-Baumgard of One Fit Widow joins the podcast to talk about mending from the death of a spouse while at the same time blending with the family of a new spouse.
Michelle Steinke-Baumgard is an author for numerous publications, international motivational speaker, fitness coach, mother, and a re-married widow. After losing her husband Mitch in 2009, she turned to exercise as an outlet for grief and a way to handle stress. Michelle found it so powerful that she eventually quit her corporate job to become a fitness trainer. Since then Michelle has been featured in Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, contributed to articles for Prevention Magazine, The Huffington Post, and countless other media outlets. In addition to her virtual training business, Michelle recently launched her own nonprofit focused on helping widows and widowers complete bucket list dreams to honor their late spouses while moving boldly into their future. She also recently started the blog "Mending While Blending" to discuss the messy life of love the second time around.
Michelle is currently working on her first book for HarperCollins to be release in 2017 on using fitness as a grief coping mechanism.
