Show Notes:

Do you restrict yourself from certain foods, overindulge, or would you say you have a balanced diet? In today's episode, we’re so excited to introduce you to two of our assistant coaches here at The Fitness Project, Katelyn and Stephen Gannon! We share a lot of similarities in our journey’s from being competitive bodybuilders, and navigating health and nutrition after walking away from the stage. Katelyn and Stephen share everything in their journey from what a day of meals like while they were prepping for a competition, to overtraining to keep up with overindulging on the weekends. This episode is full of realizations and manageable shifts Katelyn and Stephen made to find a healthy balance with their nutrition! We’re excited for you to get to know more of our team, learn from their story, and the  advice they would have given themselves at different stages of their journey!
