Constructive Criticism vs. Destructive Criticism

We love when our participants appreciate our workouts and share their positive thoughts. As amazing as this feels, we also hear feedback in the form of criticism and that can be even more powerful. We grow the most when we're uncomfortable, and constructive criticism encourages us to ask: How can I improve? This week Angie share some tips to help us decide if it's constructive or destructive criticism, and some ways we can learn and grow from the experience.
