This is a very special episode as our own Adriana Ferns is now a published author. Her memoir, Fitness to Freedom: Find Health and Self While Incarcerated is now available on Amazon.

In this episode we talk all about the book - from the events leading to Adriana's incarceration, falling down to rock bottom, then working her ass off to get physically and mentally fit, and inspiring others to do the same, as well as Adriana's thought process in publishing her book.

This is Adriana's origin story, going from substance abuse and self-destruction to using her prison time to grow into a successful Personal trainer and productive member of society. Not only is this book about personal growth, it's also a self-help for Women in Prison. Women are so underserved in the prison system and with female incarceration numbers growing, this book offers relatable real-life advice for women incarceration as well as anyone who feels they are trapped in their own personal prison.

Adriana is truly an inspiration, showing that no matter how low you are feeling, you can pull yourself up and become both physically and mentally fit. Adriana gives great advice by using herself as an example that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Enjoy this episode, and become inspired!
