In this episode of the MyoMinds Podcast, I speak with ex-boxer Aiden Mortimer. This conversation instantly became relaxed as me and Aiden share a lot in common. Together we discuss:

  • How bulimia affected Aiden's life
  • The potentially problematic side to weigh cutting sports like boxing
  • The issues with defining ourselves within sport
  • The role of masculinity in our lives

This episodes devil's advocate question: "Boxing is a sport where you take pain, shouldn’t boxers be gritting their teeth through emotional struggles too?"
