Dr. Stacy Sims and Mirna Valerio to headline a new conference focused on giving womxn the information they need to optimize their athletic performance throughout their lifetime.
Victoria, BC— February 10, 2021. Live Feisty Media is producing its first virtual conference, focused on the physiological, mental, and nutritional factors that help womxn achieve optimal performance.
The Feisty Womxn’s Performance Summit will combine presentations from knowledgeable educators with a fun, feisty vibe, ultimately building a virtual community of womxn who ask for more from their bodies throughout our lives. Speakers will include industry leaders and experts on women’s physiology, nutrition, psychology and mental performance. Presentations and panels will focus on all stages of life, from youth to mid-life, pregnancy and post-partum, menopause and beyond. Attendees will hear from leaders from a cross-section of sports including running, triathlon, cycling, off road and strength training.
Dr. Stacy Sims will be headlining the conference. Dr. Sims is an applied researcher specializing in women’s health and performance. She is the author of the popular book, ROAR, and has hosted hundreds of women in her Women are Not Small Men and Menopause for Athletes courses. Joining Dr. Sims will be Mirna Valerio, a former educator, cross-country coach, ultra-runner, speaker and author of the best-selling memoir A Beautiful Work in Progress. Mirna dedicates her time to spreading health awareness, promoting diversity, and inspiring others to be in charge of their own happiness. More speakers and the full conference schedule will be released the week of February 22nd.
Dr. Sara Gross, Ironman Champion and CEO of Live Feisty Media feels that it is time for an event focused on womxn’s performance:
“Women are waking up to the idea that much of the “common knowledge” in sports science, nutrition and psychology may not actually apply to us. So where do we go to get good information? How do we know who to trust? That’s where The Feisty Womxn’s Performance Summit comes in. We endeavour to find the right speakers with the right information to help every womxn get the best out her body throughout her life.”
Selene Yeager, Dr. Sims co-author on Roar and host of the HIt Play Not Pause Menopause Podcast for active performance-minded women, believes that the performance summit is just the beginning:
“For far too long, women have been an afterthought in sports. We’re the warm up for the ‘men’s’ event. We get inaccurate trickle down science because traditionally male researchers often deem us too ‘messy’ to include in studies with our hormones, periods, pregnancies, and potential ‘complexities.’ And once we hit menopause? It’s like we don’t exist. Enough of that nonsense. Live Feisty is a force of change, bringing womxn front and center in the conversation, delivering cutting edge experts who put womxn first in all aspects of performance. The Feisty Womxn’s Performance Summit is just the kick-off for a long, awesome game. Come join us.”
The virtual event will take place March 26-28, 2021. Registration is now open at www.womxnsperformancesummit.com
