Fitness as a Medium for Authentic Community, Vulnerability and Healthy Masculinity w/ Dave Glaser

Season 1, Ep. 5

Dave Glaser is a fitness entrepreneur who is developing authentic community and vulnerability in a world overrun with toxic masculinity and pride. He speaks about how exercise has been his number one tool to overcome anxiety and depression and he hopes that he can do the same for his clients. What started as 1:1 physical training with his mother has now blossomed into a successful business and community. In this conversation, I press him on what healthy masculinity looks like and how vulnerability can show up in the world of sports and athleticism. I have been so fed up with performative masculinity in the sports world and the lack of emotional depth. Dave had some unique solutions to these issues in the latter half of this conversation. I'm curious what you all think. Feel free to leave comments.
