In today's episode, Stuart welcomes Lisa Gimenez Codd. Lisa was one of the first ever guests on the show back in 2017. She's someone that many of the LTB community continue to turn to for advice when working with the female client. In this episode, we discuss parenthood and why they both find it extremely difficult, some misconceptions around pregnancy and the prenatal stage, when to start making changes with a pregnant client, postnatal considerations, getting the pre baby body back and more. If you work with clients who are pregnant or have had kids, you'll pick up a lot in this episode.

In today's episode, Stuart welcomes Jamie Rowland. Jamie is a personal trainer and member of LTB who has been working in the industry for well over 10 years. He specialises in working with the elderly client and runs classes for cardiac rehab and falls prevention. I loved this conversation and I think the way Jamie speaks about his clients speaks to why he's had clients working with him since 2008. We jump around but the main things we discuss are what it's like working with the elderly client, and why you may want to consider working with them, how to move past comparisons and how to develop loyalty in your client base.
