Today's Guest - Pernille Krabbe Rasmussen

Past client having undergone the following transformation in a year:

From an all-or-nothing approach to a practice of moderation, she is no longer intimidated by the gym, enjoys occasional "cheat" meals and competes in CrossFit competitions.

She works as project leader for governmental purchases in Denmark and has recently become a certified personal trainer and nutritionist herself. After the time we worked together, she has gone plant-based. She loves peanut butter so much that she has a training shirt saying: "Peanut Butter is the glue that holds this body together".
