Not just for personal trainers

This podcast has something for everyone. Informative and hilarious - I look forward to listening to every episode

Inspiring & refreshing

In a space where the majority are teaching quick fix, unsustainable and sometimes unethical practices to build your PT business these guys are a breath of fresh air. Truly a powerful mix of authenticity, integrity and realistic advice being delivered in an entertaining way. Highly recommend!
