What started as a simple accountability blog started to provide opportunity to better-connect with the wider community. In June 2020, a zoom call with now fellow-podcaster Jason, gave me the confidence to start reaching out to the community and bringing other people into the conversation.

My guests are predominately UK-centric (although I’m known to occasionally go international) and by no means limited to the elite athletes you may see featured on other podcasts. I love to talking to anyone with a passion related to the fitness industry, whether that be competitive athletes, coaches, business owners or everyday CrossFitters like myself.

I’m constantly humbled at the willingness of our community to come on the podcast and share their story, insights & expertise. It’s a privilege to experience that first hand & to able to in-turn share that with you, the listeners.
