Such a great resource

I’ve been listening to Jessie & Anita for a while now, and this has become my favorite podcast. As a pre-& postnatal fitness coach I am constantly looking to learn and up level my coaching skills. The episodes are Informative, positive, and real. Postpartum is no joke. These ladies tell it like it is. I’m also new in starting my business and I appreciate the insight they provide here too. Highly recommend!
