I’ve been listening to sarah’s podcast for over 3 years now and each episode never fails to surprise and inspire. The amazing women she interviews are always a reminder that you don’t know what someone has been through and that it’s never too late to ‘live your dreams not dream your life’.

Inspired and motivated!

Really enjoying this podcast, careful though as it can be life changing! Having it as a companion on long journeys and the commute is giving me so much tangible advice to take forward, or just marvellous information to ponder upon.
I have almost listened to nearly every interview she has done and I sponsor her on Patreon monthly. I can’t begin to tell you how inspiring I have found every one of her interviewees (so many different sorts/endeavours) and how uplifted/ enthused about life I become. Even the episodes that I'm not immediately drawn to have all given me some perfect nugget or tears of joy.
My life has changed quite a lot since I discovered this last April and now I mostly listen while I spend hours on my rowing machine training for a big challenge!

I chanced upon this podcast and have been hooked to it since. Sarah Williams has managed to curate some of the most incredible stories of adventures undertaken by women. While almost all of them are physical challenges, what they all have in common is the mental toughness they exhibit. Just the other day while out on a jog, I was listening to Jessica Hepburn's story and at a certain point during the interview, I had tears streaming down my face and I just had to break into an applause (lucky this was woodlands and there were only trees around). Sarah's questions are intuitive and gently probing and never intrusive. She steers the conversations with a firm hand while letting the subject unpack their story. What fabulous unfolding of stories it is! I've since gone on to support Sarah's work on Patreon and I think more of us should.

Not just about sport

All the stories I’ve listened to so far are incredibly inspiring and motivating, but I especially love that you can get so much more out of the episodes than just tips on fitness and sports. Love the histories, anecdotes and various recommendations about living a meaningful life.

I listen to this podcast on the way home from work particularly if I have a training session scheduled and am starting to talk myself out of it. The women on this podcast are so inspiring that you can’t talk yourself out of your run when you hear what they have achieved. Listen to this every time you’re thinking of skipping a session and you’ll get it done. So inspiring! ❤️

good podcast, though starting to feel alienated as feels like adventuring is not for WOC. Would be great to have more guests from wider cultural background.

I started listening to these podcasts as a distraction from work stress and commuting and quickly fell in love with them. Such a great community of powerful women, with interesting stories. Really takes you out of your own thoughts for a while on an adventure and inspires me to get out more.

I have been listening to these podcasts back to back since I stumbled accros them in Dec 17. They are so inspiring and I booked my first full Ironman as a direct responce to listening to what these amazing woman have achieved. I highly recomend listening to anyone who wants to step out of their comfort zone and start to challenge themselves to do more and be more.

If you’re interested in hearing about women sound awesome and inspiring adventures this is the place you you. Sarah Williams is allowing women to share their stories to increase their exposure and to motivate you to follow your dreams and live a more adventurous life. She gets to the real issues like the mental challenges, costs and how you can achieve something similar if you want. Have a listen!

Should come with a warning ....

The warning should be that you’ll be inspired to go out and have an adventure. The podcast style is perfect (in my opinion) a nice mix of narrative with personal insight behind the subject. Nice range of subjects with that tough thread linking them all.

Not a challenge to listen!

Listen and be inspired by adventurous women, interviewed in a relaxed and informal way by a woman who's had her adventures. Fascinating in its honesty, Sarah draws out tales of the highs and lows of adventure, including the preparation, planning and come-down afterwards. Always included are logistical and financial chat so that over the course of a few podcasts you begin to realise that you too can have similar adventures and overcome your own challenges. A must for all women and girls, and men and boys too!

My fav podcast!

Even if you don't think you need to be inspired you should listen to this podcast. After I listened to one episode I couldn't help but listen to the lot; on the way to work, on the way home, whilst doing chores and whilst out running, anywhere and everywhere I could. So many inspiring women, Sarah Williams being one of them herself. Subscribe, you won't be disappointed!

I love everything about Sarah’s podcast. I’m truly inspired by the women she interviews and really do use the abundance of tips and snippets of knowledge imparted by all those involved.
I also love the fact that Sarah promotes other awesome podcasts and have quite a few I subscribe to now (I hadn’t subscribed to any pre Tough Girl).
I used to listen to the radio on my commute to and from work.....not any more. The show notes are fantastic and allow you to go back and access the websites etc that were mentioned during the show (I often can’t write these down due to driving).
Keep going Sarah, we love it. 👍🏼

Brilliantly Motivating, thank you Sarah

I've been listening to these podcasts for 18 months now, mainly while running, and I absolutely love them. I love all of the interviews, even those with ladies who do sports and adventures I'm not personally particularly interested in. They help to motivate me hugely and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an extra boost in motivation!

I discovered this podcast about 6 months ago and now couldn't live without it! I am doing my first triathlon this year and find this podcast inspires me to workout harder. I especially listen to it on long runs to pass the time. I like the fact it features normal women doing epic challenges. Good job Sarah Williams.

Prepare to be inspired!

I came across a leaflet for this podcast in Oct 2015 at the Women's Adventure Expo and it was a major influence in setting off on a long distance bike adventure just over 6 months later. Absolutely packed with inspirational women from all walks of life who've completed some fantastic challenges. Sarah Williams is a briliant host and has developed an incredible resource!

I came across the Togh Girl podcast in 2016. To be honest, I wasn't too sure how I would feel about it to start with. I am not 'pro-women' nor do I like to throw my hands up in the air proving that women are equal to men hence my hesitation. However, the podcat is not like that at all!
It's a really cool bunch of women talking about their lives, their dreams, adventures and ambitions. It's upbeat and Sarah Williams, the host, is so good at her job.
Most of my time driving is spent llistening to this podcast and it makes me feel like I can do anything. Sometimes I sit outside my house just so I can carry on listening until the end.
I highly recommend hitting subscribe. Sarah is so passionate and professional with what she does and it really shows. I cannot say enough good words about this. Thank you x

Initially loved these podcasts. Was especially intrigued as Sarah was running the MDS and was interested to her about her experience. However, as time has gone on, I find her regular reminders of her marathon/MDS experiences unnecessary and distracting from the person being interviewed.

I stumbled upon the podcast as I was looking for something motivational to listen to on my last week of training for a cross-country skiing challenge I felt quite nervous about. Hearing some much positivity from these inspiring girls helped me reinforce the belief I could do it. After the race, I made it an habit to listen to an episode of the podcast every day on my way to work - there is a bunch of episodes to catch-up on so I can do it daily ;). I cannot think of a better way to start my day. Thanks Sharon, you rock! 💪

Sarah has created an invaluable space for inspirational women to share their stories, dreams & ideas. The ripple effect her work permeates through her listeners makes a broader impact to make the world a better place. Everyone can gleam golden nuggets from her "can do" approach & find the adventure in every day. Thank you & keep up your mission!

Tough Girl Podcast should be prescribed listening for ALL women. Sarah is a fantastic interviewer and the women who feature on the podcast are an inspiration. Their backgrounds, and the challenges they take on vary significantly there really is something for everyone to relate to, and something for everyone to aspire to. It's really opened my mind in terms of what's out there to do, and what I think I might be capable of.
I'm so grateful to Sarah for bringing these women together to share their stories and inspire others. And also for making the listeners really feel like part of the conversation and tough girl tribe.
(Also worth noting I NEVER write reviews - but if this helps bring another lady to the tribe it's worth it! )

I've been listening to the TG podcast for some months now and this is more than just a awesome podcast, there's a inspirational collective of like-minded women who will assist you in your endeavours with knowledge, support and huge amounts of encouragement. There are endless hours of incredible material to listen to from stories told by Olympians and record breakers but mostly stories from ordinary women who are aiming to do extra-ordinary things at every level. Whether you're aiming for your first 5km or to do the 7-summits there are amazing stories that will help you believe that YOU CAN!

Girls can do anything!
