Sitting all day long just plain sucks...and even worse, it's killing your creativity. The good news is there is now a better way. Fitness In Post is a lifestyle program designed by Hollywood film & television editor Zack Arnold (Empire, Underground, Glee, Burn Notice) that helps people working sedentary jobs for long hours learn how to sit less, focus more, eat better, and survive the brutal stress of working a demanding job in a dark room. The show covers topics such as more movement throughout your day, eating better to fuel your creativity and focus, becoming a productivity and workflow ninja (with a special emphasis on Zack’s favorite program Trello), and finding balance in a chaotic world. And we'll even help you learn how to network, develop your skill sets (the right way), and take the next step in your career.

Awesome Podcast!

Listening to this podcast changed the way I approach editing and my life every single day. I had never been more motivated to stay healthy until it was presented to me as the best way to keep my brain functioning for longer periods of time, therefore the way to become a more efficient editor. Small changes definitely make a difference. Thanks, Zack!

I've put some tips and techniques into my workflow and I'm starting to feel a difference in my engery and creative output. The 12 hour days are getting easier and I'm feeling better at home. Next up I'll start the excercizing and really get into it. Very helpful towards your journey to a better you!
