Hold on tight for this episode, Carli moves quick and if you’re slow you’ll miss her! Carli went from being a busy PT to founding the fast-growing Protein Haus. Unapologetic, willing to take risks, and willing to start before she is ready, this is a must-listen for any fitness entrepreneurs.
In this episode we discuss: leaky gut and how it is a normal part of digestion in healthy people; and the impact of movement, stress, sleep and diet on the immune system - with some findings that may surprise you.
In today’s episode I speak with the amazing coach and Muay Thai athlete, Nesrine Dally. We discuss her reservations around deciding to wear the hijab and the affect she felt it may have had on her career as a coach and athlete. We also discuss how the fitness industry has changed over the years, and what we would recommend for new trainers to the industry; how Nesrine balances, coaching, training and family life; mindset when motivation is low; and favourite recovery protocols. 
Today I speak with Biologist Sinead Roberts about her company Feed Fuel Perform. Sinead has specialised in cell biology and human genetics and brings that to her nutrition business when working with athletes and clients. We go deep on the basics of nutrition covering macronutrients, micronutrients and hydration. Sinead also discusses the supplements that have been tested and proven to work including something you will find in your kitchen cupboard and those that have no evidence to say that they work to enhance performance. 
Today I speak with the lovely Laura Faulkner about her journey to become a seven-times CrossFit European Regionals Athlete. Starting her journey weighing just 47kg and taking years to gain the weight that allows her to hold her own on the competition floor has been as much a mental journey as it has been a physical one. Managing OCD and channelling how her brain works into focused training rather than getting caught up in her head is a lesson for us all in managing how we deal with our stuff. Laura is clear that her story, methods and message are unique to her and we must all find our own way - it has been a pleasure to watch her journey up until now and I feel like this is just the beginning for her.

In this episode I answer three listener questions: 1) Why does access to quality training and coaches cost so much?; 2) How do you balance being a mama and training; and 3) What are your favourite recovery protocols?  
In this episode, I speak with physiotherapist and Crossfit Level 1 coach and athlete TJ Garcia about pelvic floor dysfunction in men and women and its effects, specifically on athletes. TJ spends her time delivering workshops with her partner, to coaches around Spain on how to train athletes with a weak or hypertonic pelvic floor. TJ says that many people think having a weak pelvic floor is normal, she disagrees and says it is just common. Here in the UK there is very little information on the pelvic floor care and the awareness that we can actually do something about it. TJ and I are working on bringing her and Vero to the UK to deliver their workshop to coaches on this really important topic, so stay tuned for that.
In today’s episode I speak with transformational therapist and coach Sukh Kalsi. Sukh covers 3 things we need to know about our mind: Your mind responds to the pictures it sees and the words it hears; your mind does precisely what it thinks you want it to do; and your mind gravitates towards what it is familiar with. We also talk about anxiety and some of the work you can do either by yourself or with a coach to try and reduce or get better control of anxiety. Finally we look at practices that you can incorporate daily to better manage your relationship with your mind.
In this episode I speak with my dear friend Lisa Price. She is a strength-competitor, yogini, and manual therapist. We've both been in the industry for 15 years and really view training in the same way. We discuss training, how we got into fitness, and about learning and the way it has to be your own journey and your own process and that is sort of how you improve on teaching others. We also touch on the important topic of changes in your body and how that affects your body image. Lisa also discusses a blood disease that she has and how it affects her training. Lisa and I will be back teaching our strength rising courses in the autumn. We'll also be talking together at my women in fitness summit on the 27th and 28th of October. More details on that to come!
This week I speak with the unstoppable Alex Hipwell. Alex is a mum, Nike Master Trainer, Personal Trainer and IFBB figure athlete. We talk about the mindset required to compete as a figure athlete which translates into any goal you have whether in sport, business or life. Alex says that if you commit to a goal, you have to own it in every sense of the word, particularly when you are feeling you are at your lowest - that is when the greatest strength is gained. We also discuss some of her training and how she approaches her diet on the show.
This episode features special guest Maria Oloffson. Maria first worked as a researcher in the biochemistry industry. She then went on to work with Nike and has been there for almost 14 years. She works with the training instructors to create new and different fitness concepts. In her full time daily job, she tries to help entrepreneurs looking to start new businesses and those looking to grow their businesses. In this episode, there may be some adult language which is not for little ears.
This episode, I chat to Clare Maxwell about her journey with anorexia which she suffered from for some time. We talked about how it started to when she realised she needed help, her recovery to being the fit and healthy woman she is today. She mentions some resources and Instagram pages to follow such as @recoverywarriors, which provides positive affirmations no matter where you are.
Keris Marsden is one of the co-founders of Fitter Food derived from her passion about good food, optimal health, being fit and active and leading long and happy lives. Fitter Food know that eating an awesome diet of good quality, great tasting and easily accessible produce is essential in living a long, healthy, energised and positive life. In this episode, she breaks down a blood test I had and provides context on what it actually means in terms of my health and nutrition.
