Wish I knew about this podcast earlier

Catching up on old episodes, found it through a climbing friend. Has really helpful tips for staying fit and excelling. Would like to see more episodes concentrate on outdoor activities/ exercices.

TriloBiteNoms ,

Sounds robotic

The tips are fine, and I subscribed for a long time, but the new guy sounds like he’s a robot reading from a script. It’s hard to stay engaged through an entire episode even though it’s only like 10 minutes.

WowthatNameIsTaken ,

I’ve boosted my rating as I’ve kept listening

The content is fine. Mostly the basics but good for beginners and middlers based in science and not quacky. I like his product recommendations and that the content is all meat and no fluff in short, easy to listen to bites. Sometimes you like to hear the banter, but sometimes you want them to get right to the point. Fit guy gets to the point.
