Loved the Fitness Podcast!
I just listened to the podcast about the fitness industry and it was really great,informative, and validating. I am a Pilates apprentice and have been working out at different gyms and studios for many years, so I definitly resonate with a lot of the discussion on this podcast. Definitely something to listen to if you are in the fitness/wellness industry and/or if you are a consumer of wellness goods and services.
