Um...

I love the information provided by this podcast but am extremely distracted by the UM... every 4-5 word in episodes! I have had to get over a similar habit myself and I know it is difficult but it is essential if you UM.. want to be taken seriously as a UH.. speaker. Keep up the great content but cut out the UM!

No matter the topic, you’ll take away helpful info from this science-backed, health-related podcast. Loved the episode with former Navy Seal, Andrew Herr about optimizing your performance! Tons of amazing take aways! Thanks!

Fun, reliable and inspirational fitness advice

Their longer podcasts are great they provide an insight on commonly asked questions that us fitness lovers get but my favorite part are the short five-minute tips are the best at motivating me almost daily.
