Ok ladeeez, ready to get your sweat on?

But before we do, let's take a quick trip down memory lane and explore the wild history of women and fitness with author Danielle Friedman and her awesome new book, "Let's Get Physical: How Women Started Exercising and Re-Shaped The World".

From 1950s barre to today's Instagram fitspo, we'll uncover the beliefs, motivations, and oppression behind it all.

Trust us, you won't believe the crazy things women used to be told about working out (hint: it involves falling uteruses). But don't worry, we'll also highlight the fierce female icons who broke barriers and changed the game.

So grab your leggings (you know, the ones made from former garments of oppression) and let's dive into this episode that just may change your relationship to exercise.
