Instagram has blown up fitness, but is it all positive? Does it paint a good enough picture of being strong, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally?
Zanna Van Dijk is the perfect person to talk about this with, a fitness blogger and instagram celeb who co-runs the Girl Gains movement.

Sheli McCoy is back on the show talking diet and training concepts in crossfit. I raise more questions on what is nutrition in the crossfit world and how has it evolved, how is crossfit evolving to change its approach to training, what actually is crossfit in terms of its competition testing, why do a kipping pull up and other speed variations of exercises, what is the future of crossfit, and more. Oh - and we talk about altitude training, mainly because sheli was sat in an altitude training centre at the time.
