No weird exercise plans.
NO SHAME IN YOUR SUMMER BODY GAME.
Just 6 weeks of taking control of how you want to live and putting a plan in place to get there. You CAN have the joy, the love, and the cool summer style you want exactly as you are right now.
Show Up for Summer is a 6 week challenge to enjoy summer fun without the guilt, stress, and shame that comes with “bikini season.” Sign up below and you’ll get a FREE email series that set the theme for the week and feature an interview with a member of the Show Up for Summer Adventure Squad! I specifically picked people for my Adventure Squad who are in the business of supporting people like you who want to learn to live their Best Life without dieting. We’ll cover things like how to find a support system, how to build habits to reach your goals, how to deal with haters, and how to rock a bangin’ beach party outfit!
YOUR ADVENTURE GUIDE
Show Up for Summer is hosted by Kate Browne, a writer, speaker, and multi-sport athlete affiliated with the Body Positive Fitness Alliance. Her TEDx Talk, “How I Found Real Fitness Inspiration: Saying ‘No’ to Fitspo,” shows how marketing tactics of the 19th century freak show influence the fitness industry today. She is also the founder of Taking Up Space, a self-care advocacy project that promotes inclusive marketing in the health, wellness, and fitness industries. Kate is sponsored by Superfit Hero.

Laura Vineyard, Owner of ShockYard Fitness & Social Club
Laura is a science nerd turned gym-owner and body-positive fitness enthusiast. After getting a bachelors degree and a PhD in biology, she found inspiration in the rough and tumble realm of roller derby and decided to shift focus and open ShockYard Fitness & Social Club with her wife, Casey, in 2014. While the athleticism and mostly controlled violence of derby is what brought Laura to the fitness world, she loves coaching folks to help find their joy in movement, whether it’s in skating around a track or lifting weights or getting out for a walk. She is stoked to be a part of the Adventure Squad because summer brings many great things, including outdoor skating, trail hikes, boating, and devoting much time to floating.
