35. Be a Great Human and The Rest Will Follow

This week has been an incredible reminder of the AMAZING humans I have in my corner! My friends, my family, my clammies - everyone around me has taught me so much about what it means to be a good human. I think we can all use an occasional reminder on ways we can be a brighter light in people’s lives, so in this episode, I’m sharing those lessons with you!

It’s truly the small things that people remember about you! Challenge yourself to go a whole day without saying anything negative about yourself - or anyone else. We’ve all enjoyed a little gossip here and there, but it will absolutely change your mindset to intentionally avoid it. Every morning you wake up and put your feet on the ground, say a word of gratitude to yourself. No day is guaranteed, and practicing gratitude affects how you treat yourself and the people around you. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

34. My Biggest Pet Peeves + How to Communicate Yours

We all have pet peeves. As a matter of fact, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have them - everyone has something that makes them tick! In this episode, I’m sharing some of my biggest peeves and my philosophy on how being open and transparent about your pet peeves in your relationships would actually help avoid a lot of unnecessary tension.  Leave me a voice message with your biggest fitness, body image, or general life questions at https://www.speakpipe.com/TalksWithYourTrainor!  Want to add good vibes, a better mood, and more bright colors to your life?

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience!  Some key takeaways from this episode include: It’s completely normal and human to have pet peeves. I actually think we could have more conflict-free relationships if we politely share our pet peeves with the people we’re closest with and be mindful of theirs as well. Remember that if someone is demonstrating one of your pet peeves, they’re probably not doing it on purpose. Give them some grace and decide whether it’s worth it to say something to them about it. If they’re a stranger to you, maybe let it go. If you are doing something that’s someone else’s pet peeve, and that person is important to you, do your best to hear them out and correct the behavior.  Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

33. The Epiphany I Had About My Body

If you are struggling with the way your body looks and feels today, this is the episode for you! This is something that absolutely all of us experience throughout our lives, and I’m sharing a recent epiphany I had about my changing body and learning to accept it exactly as it is.

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience!  Some key takeaways from this episode include: If you’re aspiring to get back into the best physique you ever had, think about how you felt during that time in your life. You might have looked “the best” in your own eyes, but were you happiest during that time? That’s what truly matters. It’s natural for our bodies to change based on our age, hormones, and the season of life we’re in. As long as you are doing your best to take care of your body, it’s important to celebrate it no matter how it looks! Meet your body where it is, not where you want it to be. If you’re injured, or sore, or unable to do certain moves in a workout, modify as needed and give yourself grace! Life is too short to waste any time being unkind to yourself!

32. Someone Made Me Feel Small… Here’s How I’m Building Myself Back Up!

Have you ever had an experience where someone belittled you or tried to dull your sparkle? I’ve been there - just a couple weekends ago, a woman made me feel small, and in this episode I’m unpacking what went through my mind and what I’ve been focusing on to build myself back up. I’m going to talk about leveling up, taking control of your emotions, and more tools for self assurance in this episode!

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience!  Some key takeaways from this episode include: Sometimes you just feel it in your gut when it times to level up a certain area of your life. Maybe it’s your career, or your workout routine. Whatever it is for you, make a plan of what your next level dream looks like, and get after it! You’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and that is okay! Release yourself of the pressure to make every single person like you. It’s not possible, so focus on the people who love the most authentic version of you, just as you are. Take responsibility for your emotions, and let other people take responsibility for theirs. Yes, it feels super crappy when other people are mean to you, but you still have the power to keep yourself in a positive headspace.

30. Q&A with My Mom! Talking Motherhood, Body Image, Legacy, and Finding the Fun Everywhere You Can

My mom just turned 70 years old, but she is giving us a gift! She is the first guest ever on the podcast this week!

For my mom, that’s dancing. She’s danced her whole life because it makes her feel vibrant and beautiful and energized. Find what that is for you and stick with it! It’s so important to teach your children the meaning of discipline. However, that is different from criticizing your children, which is something to steer away from if you want to build a strong relationship with them into adulthood. What’s your legacy? For my mom, it’s wanting to stay active for her kids and grandkids, and that intention and commitment to her health is absolutely leaving a legacy of wellness and vibrance for her family.  Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

29. What’s Your Subjective Age? Getting Older But Feeling Younger Than Ever!

My family is currently celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday, and this amazing woman is proof that age is just a number! In this episode, I’m talking about our “subjective” age and how the age we “feel” we are can literally impact how our body functions. By taking care of your body and overall health, you can still feel youthful, vibrant, and energetic… no matter how old you are. Leave me a voice message with your biggest fitness, body image, or general life questions at https://www.speakpipe.com/TalksWithYourTrainor!  Want to add good vibes, a better mood, and more bright colors to your life? Join my monthly membership, BodyByTrainor, for 12+ brand new workouts every month with the ultra-supportive CLAM community! Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience!  Resources mentioned: Article: Relationship between subjective age and frailty Some key takeaways from this episode include: My mom instilled in me from a young age the value of taking care of our bodies and staying active! She just turned 70, and she does my BBT workouts, yoga, and even pickleball.  We have three ages: chronological age, mental age, and physical age. Chronological age is our literal age according to our birthday, our mental age is how mature a person feels, and physical age is how old someone feels in their body.  Studies show that your “subjective age,” which is how old you feel, has an impact on your overall health including your cognitive function, organ health, and behavior. If you feel younger than your actual age, your brain and body reflect that. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

28. Feel Cute or Die Trying | How to Feel Good About Yourself, No Matter How Your Body Looks

Have you ever looked back on old photos of yourself and thought “damn, I looked cute!,” and then remembered how hard you were on your appearance then? This episode is all about ending that cycle, building confidence, and practicing self love! This is not an overnight fix, and it is something we will probably need to work on forever, but we are absolutely worth all the love we can possibly give ourselves!

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience! Some key takeaways on loving yourself better: When you need a reset, go back to simple pleasures. I rode a bike outside for two hours in my favorite place - Hilton Head Island - and it reminded me of childhood memories of being fully present and worry-free outdoors. Every single part of you is a blessing, just as it is, right in this moment. We can be so unbelievably hard on ourselves that we forget how freaking cute we are exactly as we are, and we deserve to feel good in our skin! Do your best to feel better about yourself in the moment. We take for granted the little things - like being able to taste, chew, and swallow delicious food - when we can practice gratitude, dress ourselves well, and take care of ourselves instead.

27. Processing My Feelings About the Dancing With the Stars Results | Part 2

Alright, y’all… It's time to talk about the results from Dancing with the Stars. If you don’t know already, I did not place in the competition.

Try not to be a recluse when you’re feeling sad. It might be your first instinct to isolate yourself, but let a trusted loved one just sit next to you and be a source of comfort. When I’m grappling with feeling super bummed about the results of something, I really try to hold onto the best parts of an experience overall. How I felt on the stage while dancing, the friendship I built with my dance partner, and the money we raised for a great cause are all keeping me rooted to the positive.

23. Friendship and Fellowship

No offense to men, but women are better at friendship. Don’t believe me? It’s true. Women are better at communication, helping each other out and having heart to heart conversations. Inspired by an interview with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sally Fields and Rita Moreno, who star in the new film 80 for Brady, I am diving into the topic of friendship and fellowship. As they say, friends are the family members you get to choose. And I choose you clams!

Let your friends know what’s going on in your life, even the mundane moments. It is not as hard as you think but it is so goddamn important. Your homework is to reach out to your friends today. Be less sensitive. Don’t take life so seriously. Laugh. Do it really loud. Do it again! We need this more than we think.

22. Reasons Not to Negotiate With Yourself

When saddled with a decision, we can choose to stay the course or we can give ourselves an excuse to stray from our path of good health. Do not negotiate with yourself. When you negotiate with yourself, you are going to negotiate with everything else in your life. Feeling uncomfortable aka sticking to your goals is good for you. I didn’t say it was easy though. If you find yourself distracted at this time of year, looking for excuses to stray from your intentions, then sit up and lean in as I give you a pep talk on how to stay the course and take care of yourself.

Especially these days, we are overflowing with options that it is easy to get lost in it all. All those distractions can become an easy excuse to stray from your intentions. If you’re negotiating with yourself and you let that little voice win, it is ok. Don’t beat yourself up, but don’t let it happen again and again. Know that next time you will get closer to your goal. Get back on the path. Sometimes we negotiate with ourselves when we are afraid of change. Change is scary but necessary for improvement. Do something a little different and watch the change that happens. Start small. These small changes accumulate over time to something magical.

20. New Year, New Attitude!

New year, new goals, new YOU in 2023! What will the new you be in 2023? Clams, it's time to think about the things you want….more muscle definition, better health, a mended relationship, something else? Don’t set yourself up for failure with unattainable goals that will leave you feeling defeated. Reach for smaller, short-term goals. When you reach those goals, you’ll feel confident and be ready for the next goal. Listen in as Meghan pumps you up, offering advice as well as antidotes to get you ready for 2023!

Support Carolina Breasts Friends and Go Jen Go by donating through my Charlotte Dancing with the Stars donation link! 3 Things to consider for your new year goals: If your goal is better muscle definition make sure you are really comfortable with the exercise first before adding heavier weights. Even adding just two more pounds can make a big difference. It's better to work on this slowly and thoroughly instead of setting yourself back with an injury. If your goal is to mend a relationship, then keep working at it. Often when you are going through a rough patch with someone, it might be because of something you are going through. Take a step back and examine what might be going on with you first. Dig deep into those feelings and see where they might be affecting other parts of your life. Learning to recognize and control our emotions is a skill we need to continually work at. Remember to practice good health habits. Drink more water, go for a 20 minute walk each day, get more sleep. You can do these things without spending any money and they will ultimately make you better. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

19. Behind the Scenes with BodyByTrainor

It's no secret y’all that I love to workout and inspire others to improve their lives through fitness. For almost 3 years I have created a brand new workout every morning without repeat. How and why does this happen you ask? Well, if you are a die-hard clam or even a new clam, then buckle up as this episode is for you. Tune in as I share the steps, thoughts and attitude I put into creating each workout of BodyByTrainor, including my thoughts on night workouts, why I am a morning person and who I look to for inspiration.

Resources mentioned: Healthy Fit by Ty Tracy Steen Move Daily Fitness In this episode you’ll learn: BBT workouts are very intentional in targeting certain muscle groups one day and then letting them rest the next. When we target a muscle group it breaks down the muscle fibers and rebuilds them, essentially rebuilding your muscle better and stronger. Why mornings are the best time for inspiration, brain work and body work! Create routines that you can stick to and don’t negotiate. When you negotiate, you start to talk yourself out of healthy habits. Motivation and inspiration are key to progress, including my own. When you shout out that you’re excited for the workout on IG, it pumps me up. When you share how BBT has changed your life, it inspires me to keep putting my all into these workouts.

18. Your Presence is the PRESENT!

This is a wonderful time of year but it is also stressful, chaotic and possibly even full of grief. If you find yourself full of anxiety this week, you’re not alone.

It's about showing up. You are special in this life. Be present and be the present for others. It's so easy to get ahead of ourselves and feel so much anxiety about this week. When this happens go for a walk, pump yourself up with the Clam Hype playlist, do a 3 minute workout. Start moving. Never underestimate the power of a workout, even a quick one, to shift your mood. You are only 1 workout away from a better mood. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

16. Sunday Scaries Are A Real Thing!

Thanksgiving is behind us, Christmas is in front of us and there is a whole lot of livin’ that needs to happen in between. As your trainer, we are making the most of our weeks to set ourselves up for success. Tune in as I discuss some key tips to handle the Sunday Scaries as well as share my Delray beach adventures involving Magic Mike and my plans for getting a new dog in spring.

Support Carolina Breasts Friends and Go Jen Go by donating through my Charlotte Dancing with the Stars donation link! 3 Tips to help you conquer the Sunday Scaries include: Investigate where your anxiety comes from. Anticipatory anxiety, anxiety about something that hasn’t happened yet, is common. You need to determine what is causing you to feel this way. Do some journaling- get to the bottom of it. Then try some small tactical tips to reduce those Sunday Scaries. Eat the frog- do something you are dreading first thing and get it out of the way! As clams, we always make our bed first thing in the morning. No one dreads this but now you’ve accomplished something right off the bat and can start checking other items off of your list. Make Sundays Fundays. Go do something that brings you joy and this day will no longer be one you dread. I love catching a Panthers game, going golfing, and getting a good workout in!

13. Embracing a YOLO Mentality For a Fuller Life + A Trip Down Memory Lane

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? In this episode, I’m sharing some of my most recent adventures, including a trip to my alma mater, Elon University, where I dartied (AKA partied in the daytime) with some of my sorority sisters from college. In addition to providing good times and great stories, this experience taught me some really cool lessons that I’m sharing with you today.

You can (and should!) practice gratitude all year round, but November is an excellent month to hone in on all the thankfulness!

If there’s something you want in life, put it out there! Speak out loud to the universe, to a friend, in a prayer, whatever resonates with you. You need to share it to help manifest it! This one is from our fellow Clam, Shannon: know how strong you are, mentally and physically. Be kind to yourself. Take care of yourself. Get your mammogram! And remember you are strong as f*ck!

11. An Emotional Recap of Our Clam Retreat in Cancun, Straight From the Clams Themselves!

Get your hearts ready... This episode is a straight up love letter to our clam community and every beautiful human that attended our clam retreat and everyone who has shown up for themselves through their workouts with me over the last two years. I am playing your messages, sharing your experiences of attending the clam retreat and meeting each other in real life, and hopefully hyping everyone up for the next one!!

Some key takeaways from this episode are: I’m going to start doing something special, just for fun, on a random day of the week, like Tuesdays. Creating an exciting moment on a usually boring day is a great way to add more sparkle to your life. You need to hold space for yourself during tough, emotional seasons in your life. When it feels like everything is out of control, don’t forget to keep living your life. Workout for an hour, take a vacation, or just treat yourself, guilt free! Do things that scare you and push you out of your comfort zone. So many clams traveled solo to the retreat and were nervous to meet new people in person, but they all rocked it and had the best time!! Being brave in these moments will carry you through life’s challenges. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

10. Turning Comparison Into Celebration + Behind the Scenes of Our Clam Retreat Prep!

In this episode, I’m sharing all the prep work and pre-retreat jitters I experienced while getting ready for our first ever Clam retreat in Cancun! By the time you’re listening to this, the retreat will have already happened (recap coming soon!!), so I’m sharing the behind-the-scenes before the trip. I’m also sharing my thoughts on comparison and how important it is to cheer on people who are reaching their goals and doing things you aspire to do. It’s so hard not to compare yourself to others in this social media landscape, but it’s also never been easier to leave positive comments and messages for people who inspire you.

Resources mentioned: Veken Packing Cubes Some key takeaways from this episode include: I was inspired by the quote “A vision without a plan is merely a dream,” and it led me to creating the Clam retreat for you all. If you have a vision, you have to take the action needed to make it happen! It can be challenging to root for others when you’re not where you want to be with your goals yet, but you will attract so many more opportunities and positivity to yourself if you cheer others on anyway! The best friendships are the ones where you appreciate each other deeply. It’s totally okay to have different friends that you call on for different reasons, but ultimately you want to build relationships with people you love to celebrate and who love celebrating you.

9. How Do You Speak? | Channeling Your Nervous Energy Into Passionate Energy

Happy Monday, Clams! In this episode I’ll discuss all of the wonderful tips and tricks I learned throughout the Excellence in Speaking Institute course I took last week. Do you want to know the most important thing I took away from my experience? Be comfortable with the uncomfortable! We’ll talk about how having eye connection, standing firm, pausing and eliminating non-words doesn’t come easy to everyone and how to implement these things in your life. You don’t have to master it all at once, but by putting some of these things into practice in your daily life will ultimately be of value to you!

Resources mentioned: Excellence in Speaking Institute (ESI) Support Carolina Breasts Friends and Go Jen Go by donating through my Charlotte Dancing with the Stars donation link! Some key takeaways from this episode are: A non-word is an um, like, so, etc. Take time to think about your non-words and try pausing instead. I encourage you to be aware of yours and try not to start every sentence with “so”. You know what you’re going to say. Pause, think about it and proceed. Give everyone you’re speaking to an opportunity to connect with you through your eyes. Yes, it’s easier said than done… but try it, own it. The more we do it the more it becomes our habit. Anytime you’re talking to someone, you’re presenting your thoughts and opinions. Storytelling is my favorite because you’re simply regurgitating what happened to you. The most important thing to remember if you’re a storyteller is your grabber opening and power close. Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

I’m bringing like-minded, kind, caring, funny, and supportive people together in a judgment free space. Open hearts with an attitude of gratitude. As we approach Halloween, think zip-lock bags. Portion your goodies into individual servings. The goal is to find what works best for you. Stick with your plans and if you don’t have one? Create one. Rather than buying the big bag of candy at the store, buy the individual bag to save on time and effort. It’s all about convenience!

7. Building Relationships, Freezing My Eggs, and Working Out As a Love Letter To Your Body | CLAMline Q&A

Do you hear the shellphone ringing? The CLAMline is open again this week! I’m sharing a recap of my amazing trip to ATL to celebrate my friend’s baby shower and some of the topics it has brought up for me, including building beautiful friendships and relationships, and my egg freezing journey.

Resources mentioned: Support Carolina Breasts Friends and Go Jen Go by donating through my Charlotte Dancing with the Stars donation link! Some key takeaways from this episode include: Don’t negotiate with yourself! If you decide setting your alarm for an early morning is a great idea, show up and keep that promise to yourself. If 5 PM is the time you want to get after it, that’s awesome, too! Set a time and stick to it. You are the company you keep.

2. Dare to Do the Hard Shit Today… But Only If You Really Want to

I know it, you know it, your mama knows it: you can do hard things! But if doing the hard thing feels like a huge chore, this is the episode for you! I’m sharing a recent experience I had with putting myself out there and not doing so well, and getting honest with myself about whether I really wanted to put in the hard work to be the best at something I was passionate about. If you need a pep talk to get you through some hard shit this week, I got you!

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience! Resources mentioned: The Dwell Hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee Some key takeaways on doing hard shit: It’s okay to have high expectations, but only if you’re willing to do the work. If you expect greatness to come to you from doing nothing, you’re gonna have a bad time. Sometimes we need to have that difficult conversation with ourselves and ask: are we willing to do the hard work? If the answer is no, that is 100% okay! Move on to the thing where the answer to that question is HELL FREAKING YES! Putting yourself out there and losing will always always always be better than sitting on the sidelines for fear of failure. Failing is hard, but we learn and grow so much every time we go through it. You got this!! Talks With Your Trainor is hosted by Meghan Trainor, the Founder of BodyByTrainor!

1. Who Is BodyByTrainor? The CLAM Community Origin Story

Welcome to the CLAM studio, y’all! In this first episode of the Talks With Your Trainor podcast, I’m sharing the origin story of how I started BodyByTrainor, or BBT for short! BBT has brought so many amazing humans into my life, and this episode is the who, what, when, and why behind the community that’s 35,000+ strong and counting!

Learn more and sign up at https://www.bodybytrainor.com/bbt-experience! Resources mentioned: IV Wellness by Nurse Joanie Some key takeaways from this episode are: BodyByTrainor was born seven years ago when I competed in my first ever bikini competition. I had about 300 followers (can you say “influencer?”) but I look back at the work I put in during this season of my life as evidence I can do anything! After competing, I started learning the art of balance. Gaining weight and losing muscle in order to allow myself to live a sustainable lifestyle was (and still is!) so damn hard, but so worth it! You’ll hear me refer to my “Clams,” which is what we call our community members! It originated from a leg day workout where we did a clamshell exercise and a few dirty jokes later, bada bing bada boom, the CLAM community was born!
