Happy New Year and Welcome to 2016!
I’m so excited to kick off the New Year with this awesome podcast episode which is bound to inspire and motivate you.
Today we’ll be talking to Annie Ross from eXerK. She set out in 2015 to complete 52 challenges in 52 weeks in an attempt to encourage busy people in and around London (maybe even the world) to make time for the things they care about – whatever it may be.
Annie has a full time job working in banking, but she was sick and tired of the lack of exercise in her life. In December 2014 she decided to make a change and she started the eXerK project on the 1st January 2015.
During this podcast we discuss:
“Go on – set your goals, carve out time, be determined and just get on with it”
Project Awesome - is a FREE fitness movement in London that gets you out of bed and into shape.
