Finding Joy and Balance in Wellness with Megan Roup

In the bustling world of wellness and fitness, where time is as precious as health itself, finding the right balance can be a challenge, especially for those juggling the complex responsibilities of work and motherhood. It’s in this very pursuit of balance and efficiency that Miranda Kerr, a working mom herself, introduced us to Megan Roup, the fitness guru who’s transforming the way we approach exercise. 

Miranda Kerr, whose quest for practical and effective wellness solutions is well documented, praises Megan’s approach, saying, “It can feel overwhelming to dedicate a full hour workout as a working mom, which is why I love Megan’s short, quickie options. You really feel like you are getting such great results and can do it in little 15- to 20-minute increments throughout the day.” Here, we explore Megan’s philosophy and methods but also how her program has become a game-changer for individuals (like our founder) striving to maintain their health and wellbeing amidst the demands of daily life.

“My wellness and fitness journey is sort of ever-evolving,” Megan shares. Her early 20s were marked by a toxic relationship with her body, a struggle familiar to many. Megan’s approach to healing this relationship was through “intuitive eating” and a “joyful movement practice.” Her method isn’t a temporary fix but a lifetime commitment to well-being. “It’s not the next 30-day challenge; it’s for the rest of your life,” she emphasizes.

The creation of The Sculpt Society was a pivotal moment, born from the absence of a community and class that resonated with Megan’s own needs. “Being able to curate a class that I’d always wanted and that felt really good in my body, I think changed a lot for me,” she recounts.

When the pandemic hit, it forced a slowdown that, paradoxically, showed Megan and her community the “power of slowing down” and the effectiveness of “shorter workouts.” Her personal revelation was profound: “I never felt like I’d looked better.”

Her philosophy extends to how we incorporate organic living into our lives. She strives for balance, choosing organic when practical but avoiding the trap of perfectionism. “If I have the option, and it’s not astronomically more expensive, I’ll get the organic option,” Megan says pragmatically.

On skincare, Megan’s preference for mindful choices is evident in her fondness for KORA Organics, especially the Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum that proved to be a safe haven during her pregnancy and postpartum journey. “It’s about finding effective yet safe options that work for you,” Megan says regarding her beauty choices.

Megan also highlights the importance of “romanticizing” the small rituals in our lives. “Making my morning coffee a ritual, romanticizing it,” she describes, is one of the ways she fills her cup each day. For Megan, wellness is about simplifying and asking, “Did this little ritual or habit actually add to my day?”

As for her fitness routine, Megan has adapted her classes to be more inclusive and accessible. “Minimal commitment,” she describes, “they’re around 15 to 17 minutes and beginner to intermediate level.” It’s about creating a space where people can show up as they are, without the pressure of perfection.

In closing, Megan emphasizes the significance of connection in our daily lives, especially as many continue to work from home. “Finding connection, even if it is this interview, and creating those little moments throughout the day,” is crucial, she advises.

Megan Roup’s journey and philosophy remind us that wellness isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a personal journey of finding what brings us joy, balancing our commitments, and embracing a lifestyle that’s sustainable for the long haul. Her approach isn’t just about being fit; it’s about feeling good, inside and out, and doing so with a sense of community and support.
