I legit get excited when I see a new episode✋🏻

Such a great podcast for any competitor or anyone even interested in competing. Celeste is genuinely such a sweetheart, and a great interviewer. Every episode I listen to, I gain so much insight, advice, and motivation from all of the pro’s she interviews.
As a newer competitor who is in LOVE with the sport, the struggles and experiences that these pros share really hit home sometimes. I am so grateful I found Celeste and this podcast! 🙏🏻
