If you’re perpetually striving to learn more and be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday, then consider diving into the world podcasts. But of course, if you fit the bill you probably are already invested. If you’re not, they’re an easy way to learn the best advice from the top experts in their field.
I love feeling productive by listening during ‘dead’ time which includes driving, preparing meals and especially in the gym. My top tip for maximizing time is to listen to podcasts on 2x playback speed. Most of the time it’s still easy to follow along and you cut your time in half!
Check out my top 6 favourite fitness podcasts, with an emphasis on the top 3, and dive right in.
