Following the success of their YouTube Channel, which has over 350,000 subscribers, health and fitness coaches John Chapman and Leon Bustin appeared on Sunday Brunch to talk about their fitness regimes, food habits and to promote their latest book 'Eat More, Move Better and Feel Awesome.'

Mr Chapman, who attended Old Buckenham High School, said: 'For us it's about being happy, being mindful and a bit more holistic about stuff.'

Showcasing their cooking skills, the duo made their signature steak tacos on the show with presenter and Chef Simon Rimmer.

Best friends John and Leon explained how their aim is to make their meals sustainable, and to get people to understand that 'being healthy doesn't have to be hard or depressing.'
