Episode 13: Fit, Fabulous Female Adventurers Travelling the World

In this episode of ExtraVirgin, we talk to Yvonne Shepherd, owner of Women’s Fitness Adventures. In 2013, Yvonne called time on her stressful corporate career to follow her dreams of encouraging other women to improve their own health and fitness.

Today she inspires women by taking them walking to some of the most beautiful places in the world — from the cliff tops of Italy’s Cinque Terre, to the Australian outback; her goal, to support women to not only become fitter and healthier, but fearless world adventurers.

We talk to her about the environmental responsibility of tour operators, why we need Jane Fonda as part of our exercise routine, her favourite walk in the world and what it’s like wrangling groups of women of all ages and fitness levels in sometimes very remote places.

And if you haven’t already, think about downloading ExtraVirgin from iTunes, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts so you get new releases as they come out. And keep an eye out for sign up soon for our newsletter which will have plenty of info for food and travel lovers, as well as, we hope, some tempting travel specials.
