18. Melanie C: Everyone is good enough
By BBC Radio 4
The UK’s favourite fitness coach is back with series two of his podcast. This summer, Joe will be speaking to inspirational friends and some of his favourite people to ask them what they do to keep themselves feeling mentally and physically strong in the face of life’s little challenges. It might be going for a new personal best on the running machine or cosying up with a good book; every guest will share the one thing that works for them in the hope it might inspire you to try something new.
This week, Joe caught up with Sporty Spice, the back-flipping queen of Girl Power herself, Melanie C. She shared what it's like to finish, release and promote an album all through an international lockdown, and how her and her family have been keeping healthy while stuck at home.
Melanie also shared stories about the Spice Girls days - the highs and lows of being in one of the most stratospherically popular bands of all time, and the pressure that put on all of them. These days, her music is all about self-acceptance and being who you really are, and that's a message that Melanie wants ALL her fans to get on board with.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
