Episode 53: Meagan Martin Fun Power


February 6th, 2019 is the 33rd edition of the National Girls and Women in Sports Day. In honor of that we have a special episode with Meagan Martin, who along with so much else, models for Athleta. Meagan and American Ninja Warrior Jr. contestant Makena Cook have teamed up with Athleta to bring awareness to this special day and support the brand’s mission of keeping young girls active in sports. 

The amazing Meagan Martin is an American Ninja Warrior superstar, professional climber, USA Team climber, and, as of very recently, Meagan is also a commentator for USA Climbing on ESPN.

Clearly, Meagan is excellent at staying active. She also makes a point of coaching and mentoring younger climbers. Plus, she recently moved. I caught her between driving home from the airport after commentating at Bouldering Nationals and heading out to look at houses.

One super cool thing about this Meagan is she says out loud her goals, even if they are far out into the future. I love that! No hiding!

In the episode, Meagan shares her thoughts about the impact of sports for kids, girls and women, the value of mentors, painted nails, body image, goals, aging, and she has some final wise words… so click play and hear it all.
