I first came across personal trainer, Lydia, on Instagram where I admired her lifting skills enviously. She was hashtagging her #stronggirltakeover movement about inspiring women to support each other in getting strong together, which I liked the sound of. Next thing I knew, she was on TV in the second series of the BBC’s Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week, where recruits are put through their paces (aka battered, mentally and physically) via a series of brutal Special Forces-style exercises on barely any sleep.
Being a nosy parker, I wanted to know more. Thankfully Lydia let me ask all my questions. See below.
