Like everyone else, this year I was going to get into shape. I have taken this vow for the last fourteen years. I have bounced weight from 270 to 240 and back for the same amount of time. Strangely for me I have never turned to a podcast for information. I have always felt that eating was a substitute for the emptiness I feel inside. I decided to finally start therapy at forty-four and also dedicated myself to exercise doing both for balance.
My first foray into fitness podcasts is Bodcast. Hosted by trainer Michael Buckley and comedian Robyn Schall, Bodcast takes a very typical podcasting approach to fitness. I don’t state this a bad thing, but in fact makes the discussion of fitness very approachable. This episode is about fitness myths which caught my eye as I start my own fitness journey. Michael Buckley and guest host and trainer Natalie Mcclure discuss vitamins, hydrating and whether eating after a workout helps or hurts. The hosts have personal anecdotes, what works with their clients and equipment that matters.
I listened to the whole podcast and was writing this up when I realized the podcast ended in march of last year. This is a good example how a podcast can have longevity and relevancy as I did not notice while listening. The Bodcast was on the new and noteworthy list on itunes so I plead ignorance on this one. It was good podcast, thirty minutes, giving information in an easy digestible way without being preachy which is not the usual in a fitness podcast.
