Today we are joined by Rachel Cargle; activist, writer, and lecturer. Her activist and academic works are rooted in providing intellectual discourse, tools, and resources that explore the intersection of race and womanhood. Rachel also created an organization called The Loveland Group, which houses multiple companies dedicated to lifelong culture, learning, and opportunity. Rachel was in town from NYC, so the girls hopped on the opportunity to spend time with Rachel in person.  She is leading the movement on some incredibly issues plaguing our society. In today’s episode, we talk about what it was like for Rachel growing up in a predominantly white community, socioeconomic differences between races, and using her platform to create accessible educational lectures. Rachel shares her view on the feminist movement, how the health and wellness space reacts to her, and the way that the welfare system works. We hope this conversation inspires you to have conversations within your community, friend groups, and families—conversations that might not be comfortable but conversations that could, ultimately, change history.

  • Her college experience

This conversation is such an inspiring look into the beautiful fitness empire that Karena and Katrina have created, and offers insight on the differences that make their relationship work, the consistency it takes to build a fempire like this one, the highs and the lows, the faith and the fear along the way, and what’s to come for Tone It Up.
