Craig: Welcome to the Mover’s Mindset podcast, where I interview movement enthusiasts to find out who thank you are, what they do, and why they do it. In this episode, Charlotte Miles shares her motivations for coaching, why it’s important to her, and how it fits into her life. She delves into more difficult topics. Emotional and energy recovery, personal struggles, and her experiences with mortality and grief. Charlotte discusses how parkour affects her life, her definition of success, and finishes with real life superpowers and finding purpose.
Craig: Hello. I’m Craig Constantine.
Charlotte: Hey, I’m Charlotte Miles.
Craig: Charlotte Miles is a coach, athlete, filmmaker, and an entrepreneur. Her curiosity for human movement has seen both her training and coaching career span various forms. From contemporary dance, crossfit, and Olympic weightlifting, to strongman, and now parkour. In addition to this, Charlotte is the lead creative at Parkour Generations, managing design, branding, and social media, and is the founder of Iron Heart Studios, her own media company committed to rich, resonating, and responsible storytelling. Welcome Charlotte.
Charlotte: Hey Craig. Thank you so much for having me.
Craig: Charlotte, as I was reading about some of the things you’ve done, I’m torn between … I wanted to just have the whole meta conversation about creativity in terms of working with media and interviewing people, and I’m not sure how interesting that would be to everybody else. But let’s start there a little bit and I’m wondering what your thoughts are being on the pointy end of the creative process. The sharp end.
