If so, you’re not alone. We’ve written before about how a legal career can be hazardous for your waistline. In a reader poll asking whether you’ve gained weight during your career as a legal professional, almost 60 percent of you answered in the affirmative (“yes, and I’m tipping the scales of justice”).
So what can be done? Meet a former Biglaw associate who can help you turn things around. Based on her own fit and fabulous physique, this attractive attorney knows a thing or two about getting and staying in shape….
Meet Megan Grandinetti, a lawyer turned health coach and yoga teacher. She practiced at Cleary Gottlieb and
Slavies Davies Ward before launching her health coaching practice. She explains her professional and personal journey — and offers lifestyle tips for Biglaw attorneys — in this interview with Spencer Mazyck of Bloomberg Law:
Megan’s story is similar to that of Karen Krueger, the Wachtell Lipton partner who now teaches the Alexander Technique. Working in Biglaw can lead to big health problems, as Megan and Karen both learned before transitioning to their new ventures. Now they help lawyers and other professionals lead better, more balanced lifestyles.
Congratulations to Megan on her new venture, which is going swimmingly so far. Just a few months in, she has already built up a nice network of clients. If you’d like to learn more about her services (and perhaps get a free consultation), check out her website.
Let the “Big” in “Biglaw” refer to your paycheck, not your waistline.
