Is this real life?  Krista and Lindsey had the dreamiest chat with two of their WCW’s and boss babe inspirations: Kelly LeVeque and Simone De La Rue. These two gurus are dominating the nutrition and fitness world, and have honestly changed Krista and Lindsey’s lives.  They chat about collaborating on the new Body By Simone (BBS) app, which has a nutrition component that Kelly created (including exclusive recipes!). Body By Simone Studios already offer some of the best, safest, and most FUN workouts for women, but now anyone can get that same amazing workout anywhere and anytime using the app. It’s like having your trainer + nutritionist in your pocket!


If you don’t already know who these women are, Simone De La Rue is a former dancer turned Hollywood fitness expert and owner of the Body By Simone empire, which includes studios, a book, an online streaming service, and now the app.


Kelly is an Almost 30 OG, the queen of nutrition, the creator of Be Well By Kelly, and the author of Body Love: Live in Balance, Weigh What You Want, and Free Yourself from Food Drama Forever. This is hands down one of the best books about nutrition and sustainable nourishment and it has some DE-LIC-IOUS recipes.
