On this episode of Turn­ing Heads, I wel­come fit­ness instruc­tor and cre­ator of Plan­ta­vor, Olivia Lee. In the first half of the episode, Olivia shares her per­spec­tive on the fit­ness indus­try and trans­lates the mov­ing mes­sages com­mu­ni­cat­ed from her cur­rent posi­tion at Win­nipeg’s own, The Com­mu­ni­ty Gym. She iden­ti­fies the tran­si­tion of women involved in the fit­ness world and acknowl­edges the impor­tance of rec­og­niz­ing one’s own strengths and abil­i­ties when tak­ing up space in the realm of exer­cise and move­ment. In the sec­ond half of the episode, we move on to explore her new side hus­tle, Plan­ta­vor. As her busi­ness is still in its infan­cy, Olivi­a’s pas­sion for devel­op­ing deli­cious veg­an recipes has already left her cus­tomers drool­ing and in awe of her cre­ative touch. While acknowl­edg­ing the joys of engi­neer­ing a new busi­ness, she dis­cuss­es the guilt she expe­ri­ences when it comes to the mon­e­tary trans­ac­tion between her­self and her patrons. Olivia moves on to dis­cuss the per­fec­tion­ism asso­ci­at­ed with a veg­an lifestyle and the many extreme assump­tions that oth­ers hold with regards to choos­ing a plant-based diet. She then con­cludes the episode as she pro­vides tips to those who are inter­est­ed in flirt­ing with the idea of becom­ing vegan.
