She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world.

“John Chapman & Leon Bustin are personal trainers, Nutritionists and YouTube sensations. With over 190 thousand subscribers and 9 million views these two best friends are showing that getting healthy, fit & in great shape can be fun!
As they say, “Our aim is to help as many people as possible get healthy and understand that getting in great shape and being healthy doesn’t have to be hard or depressing, it’s not a restriction it’s a choice with endless options.
There is so much conflicting advice out there that people are just really confused, when often all they need is a bit of encouragment to tell them what they are doing is great. They just need some support, some ideas and more knowledge that’s easy to digest and watchable, which is where our boyish humour comes into play”
