17. Perfectionism and ImposTER syndrome
Play • 1 hr 12 min

The Pilates industry attracts the kind of people who like to do things properly.

But when a healthy striving for excellence becomes a paralysing perfectionism, or when you feel like a fake despite looking successful on the outside, there's a problem.

We talk through our views, and some of the science on perfectionism, imposter syndrome and what can be done about them.


  • Prevalence, predictors, and treatment of impostor syndrome: A systematic review (2019) here
  • Angela Duckworth Grit TED talk here
  • Raph's interview with Sarah Michael (Shake it out!) here
  • Online interventions for depression and anxiety – a systematic review (2014) here
  • Psychological interventions can help with perfectionism here
