Top five health and fitness podcasts to keep you motivated in 2016
If like me you’ve used the New Year as a good opportunity to set some health and fitness related goals for the coming year, it might be time to refresh your Podcast playlist to keep you motivated past January. I am a big fan of podcasts; they’re an easy way to keep up to date with the latest health and fitness tips, nutritional research and to kick-start your commitment to action. There really are some great ones out there! My favourite thing to do at the moment is to lace up my trainers, stick on a podcast and head out for a long walk. Try it! Its fast becoming my favourite time of the day.
So, if you’re looking for some podcast inspiration, read on.
1. FITTER FOODS PODCAST
Number one on the list has to be the Fitter Foods podcast from Matt Whitmore and Keris Marsden. I’m a big fan of these guys, it’s no surprise they have built up a loyal following. I learn something new every time I listen to this podcast and they have a great selection of guest speaking on a variety of topics, which in fact is how I discovered a lot of the other podcasts listed below! Oh and if you don’t already have a copy of their most recent book, Fitter Food a Second Helping, I highly recommend you pop over to their store and buy it now.
2. THE PALEO WOMEN PODCAST
This podcast, from the girls behind the Coconut & Kettlebells blog, is definitely worth a listen. The podcasts covers a variety of health, fitness, nutrition, mindset, and body image topics and its published weekly so there are always plenty of episodes to keep you busy.
3. BEN COOMBER RADIO
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years, and its gone from strength to strength. The podcast features Q&A’s from listeners as well as interviews with guests and is a great source of fitness and nutrition. I’m a big fan of Ben Coomber and Rachel Guy, who has featured as co-host on recent episodes.
4. FIT GIRLS TALK
This podcast from Keris Marsden, of fitter foods, and life coach Sarah Doyle is less about technical knowledge and more about broader issues that contribute to wellbeing. The last episode focused on accepting a compliment, which I think is something most of us could probably work on.
5. REVOLUTION HEALTH RADIO
If you want to delve a bit deeper and get some more technical information about health and nutrition from a functional medicine perspective, then this is the podcast for you. Chris Kresser, and his various guests, comment on recent research and discuss hot topics in the health and fitness world. I’m a total health geek, so this podcast is right up my street!
So, those are my top 5 podcasts for 2016. If you’re not listening to all of these already, head over to iTunes and get subscribing. I’m always on the look out for interesting new podcasts to provide the soundtrack to my walks so if you have any suggestions, send them my way!
