Ever Forward Radio with Chase Chewning

Welcome to EVER FORWARD RADIO! The podcast that brings you empowering messages and interviews from industry leaders of fitness, nutrition, mindset, entrepreneurship and personal development to help you life a life ever forward.

Dec 19, 2022

Valentina LeQueux is here to talk about the mindset needed to combat negative thoughts, using breathwork for trauma release, her struggles with body image as a fitness lover, and her self-worth during and after an unhealthy marriage.

We can learn a lot from our pasts, but as Valentina says, we can’t fix anything there. The only thing we truly have control over is this present moment. That mindset has gotten her through the hardest of times and led her to accept what is right here, right now.

Valentina LeQueux is a BA, CPT, breathwork facilitator, and Founder of Naked Coaching and the NKED app. Valentina creates online programs to educate a wide variety of people on how to stop over-complicating training and nutrition, so your mind is clear to build the body and mind you’ve always wanted.

Key Highlights

  • Who is the non-obvious Valentina? “I’m the laziest person you’ll ever meet, not joking,” she says. Valentina talks about why she’s struggled to meet her movement and fitness goals this year, downgrading to 1-4 training sessions a week, and why she too needs a coach. She also opens up about her struggle with body image and how she’s finding acceptance of her biggest insecurity, cellulite.
  • Valentina describes the inspiration and mindset behind her online fitness coaching programs, emphasizing the importance of education and community in any health and fitness journey.
  • She discusses the reality of navigating low self-confidence and low self-worth after leaving a toxic relationship and how she became more aware of her negative self-talk.
  • Psychedelics can be very healing, but unfortunately, they don’t always lead to healing experiences. Valentina speaks up about her unfortunate experience with psychedelics and offers words of wisdom and caution about using them. 
  • Having learned so much about what she doesn’t want in a partner, Valentina is now in a very healthy relationship! Listen in as she speaks on how she was able to open up again after a divorce and why she never would have seen this relationship coming.
