“As GAA Team Director I am always looking g the way to improve our competitor teams. I had follow Betsy for some time in her Facebook and got so many new ideas for our condition program. This summer we had the privilege to have her visiting our gym and the nutrition advices hand by hand with all the exercise were incredible. After her visit we definitely improve our conditioning. Thank you Betsy for all you do for the benefit of our beautiful sport.”
