Cat Zingano steps out of the ring for Q&A on health and fitness

Cat Zingano on what it takes to be a world-class athlete, a mother, and have a life. She shares her advice on nutrition, fitness and self-care.

Female athletes are no stranger to public shaming of their bodies. Too fit, not fit enough, too muscular, not muscular enough.

 

One athlete who has dealt with it for most of her career is Cat Zingano. We sat down with Cat “Alpha” Zingano, a professional UFC fighter, to discuss how she prepares, trains, heals, eats, and still manages a work-life balance.

Many people—specifically women—can empathize with these very human elements of performance expectations, body image, motherhood, fitness and diet. In this 4-part video series, Zingano steps out of the fighting ring and into the spotlight for a health and fitness Q&A.
