An important aspect in our journey into health and fitness, is to research and learn. Nowadays, at a click of a finger we can have an overload instantly of information online, that can be quite overwhelming at times. However things like websites, books, blogs are still excellent sources for expert health guidance along your journey, including many amazing workouts to follow.
In addition to the great content you are able to find online you should also consider Podcasts as an excellent source for information. With our busy day to day lives, we may not have time to sit down and read a book every day, but podcasts are fantastic for busy schedules as you can simply pop some headphones in on your commute to work, or on your morning walk and listen to endless possibilities.
Podcasts are one of the fastest growing forms of digital media on the internet. Here are a few of our favourites:
