the Talks: Past events

Wildness and celebration

Last Wednesday, 1 June,  saw Part 4 of our The Antidote #BodyTalk series in association with Selfridges, with the topic of conversation, “How can I unearth my inner athlete?”

Your body is amazing and it’s the only one you have. Are you making the most of it? Suzanne Duckett spoke to three very inspirational athletes and adventurers talking about how and why they continue to celebrate their bodies, regularly taking themselves physically and mentally to the edge of wildness.

The panel included Olympic medallist open water swimmer Keri-Anne Payne, amputee and track Paralympian Stefanie Reid, endurance adventurer Sophie Radcliffe and celebrity strength and conditioning coach Dan Roberts.

“Join a gym where the trainers know your name. It helps motivate you” Sophie Radcliffe

“You don’t get on that podium by having a good thigh gap” Stefanie Reid

What do PT clients want? “People just want to like their body more” says Dan Roberts

“Don’t be afraid of failure, part of being an elite athlete is learning to fail” Stefanie Reid

“Break up big goals in to small chunks gives regular reasons to celebrate small achievements” Keri-anne Payne

“Getting slimmer, losing a few pounds is not inspiring ‘cos it’s not exciting enough. We need motivation” Dan Roberts

“I used to cry when I couldn’t go early morning swimming as a kid. Now I cry when I have to go” Keri-anne Payne

“We are happier if we regularly, actively remind ourselves of our own body’s abilities” Dan Roberts

“Instead of being embarrassed about my blades I wanted people to stare at them!” Stefanie Reid
