247. Megan Roup: New Motherhood, The Sculpt Society & Postpartum Realness
Megan Roup, founder of The Sculpt Society and beautiful new mama, sits down with Jordan to talk about the raw and relatable realities of motherhood, building a brand, and how she shows up for herself, her family, and her community every daily.
Juggling multiple roles can be challenging. Megan gives the entire backstory on how she spent six and a half years creating The Sculpt Society concept and gaining the courage to leap to be a solo entrepreneur after years working as a professional dancer for the NBA and teaching classes in New York City. In 2019, she foresaw how digital fitness was on the rise and created what quickly became America’s #1 fitness app!
Now, six weeks into motherhood to a beautiful baby girl Gemini angel, Megan opens up about the challenges she experienced throughout pregnancy, from her changing body shape to the frustrations of breastfeeding and recovery from labor – which, let’s face it, is probably the most brutal physical workout a woman could ever do! She’s very transparent about the exhaustion and exhilaration of being a sleep-deprived mom who maintains a business alongside her husband. Plus, she shares her plans to start teaching here in LA and to find a new community of clients and moms to align with.
Megan’s journey and wise words to her younger self remind us to be gentle and kind to ourselves throughout the process: “Your timing will happen; it’s all going to work out, and stop stressing because your timing looks a little bit different from everyone else’s.”
