Absolutely amazing you have to listen !

Have been listening to the podcast for a while now and has really positively impacted my approach to food and exercise! I feel so much happier about myself now and fitness is no longer just about the aesthetics!
Keep doing what you are doing ladies!

Keep up the awesome work!

Only just discovered this amazing podcast and am now binge listening! I’ve thankfully always had a healthy relationship with food and exercise, but it’s so good to get affirmation and encouragement from these wonderful ladies. Please keep them coming! Ideas for future episodes: some badass women from the armed forces, Louise McCullough (who won the sas who dares wins show).
