Me and Anna are back with an action packed show. Although we intended for this to be a big Q&A show we pick up on a good topic that is important to us both and ended up discussing for a while, the importance of body image, self belief, and confidence and its connotations in the fitness industry. We do eventually get to some questions, but not many, we rant for too long. Check me out at and Anna out at
