Join Cathryn Lucas, Personal Trainer with Cornell Wellness, to discuss the social media phenomenon known as “fitspiration.” Originally designed to be motivational, fitspiration social media posts often leave people feeling bad about themselves. In this Lunch & Learn workshop, we’ll discuss the history of motivational images and the role social media plays in our lives. Topics will include image composition, the inner working of the fitness industry, and the promotion of impossible body ideals. You'll take away a more critical lens for viewing common marketing strategies & social media images.
