Kika Mela Discusses Life after a Professional Horse Jockey Career

Kika Mela Discusses Life after a Professional Horse Jockey Career

Lab of Us ep. 26

Understanding the importance of bodywork and being physically fit for professional sports is something that Kika Mela of Mela Therapeutics and Ki-Ro Core Trainer knows both from her experience as an athlete and working with them for over a decade in South Florida.

This episode is an open conversation about her experience that spans finding purpose in retirement, retiring from professional sports with your body intact and Jennifer and Kika even touch on sexual harassment.

Topics discussed:

  • Physicality of riding a racehorse (hint.. it’s almost impossible for the majority of the population to complete once around the track)
  • Similarities between being a horse jockey and other sports
  • Finding purpose and bliss after being a professional athlete
  • Learning about exercise and the body after professional sports
  • Efficient exercise for athletes
