In this episode I take my camera to spend time with Misty Tripoli and The World Groove Movement in Tulum, Mexico. I met up with people who were taking part in her Just Love Groove Retreats and had the opportunity to share their dance floor for a couple of days. Misty and I talk about the fitness industry, how she got started in it, and of course, about dance. Misty and I connected in our concern for the direction that the Fitness Industry is taking on teaching people about health and wellness. Perhaps we should be discussing a broader definition of health and wellness? Or will be stuck to capturing it as a melting pot of 6 pack abs, protein powders, burning calories, body hacking, fitness apps, and, as someone who has her own set of exercise videos, be about “fitting into your jeans by Friday.”
