Good episode? Give it some love!
I know, I know, I know. It’s been like FOREEEEEEVER since I last put up a podcast. I’m terrible.

But I’ve more than made up for it with today’s episode. It’s featuring 2 amazingly strong and dynamic women in very different roles within the fitness industry, talking about stuff they like and don’t like plus giving some predictions as to what’s going to happen down the line with the online fitness sphere.

Lindsay Somerset is an accomplished cyclist and also the behind the scenes Jedi to help Somerset Fitness stay on track. She also does a lot for animal rescue volunteering and runs a blog, For the Love of Animal Rescue to help educate and encourage animal rescue.


Meghan Callaway is an accomplished retired soccer player who is also a full-time strength coach and soccer coach in North Vancouver, BC. She’s also the author of the Ultimate Pullup Guide, something everyone who is serious about doing pullups should have in their library.


She also writes an incredible blog at MeghanCallawayFitness.com
