Fast, Easy, Practical
This podcast is extremely easy to understand and cuts straight to the chase with exactly what you need to know about fitness and fat loss - it's perfect for somebody just starting into a exercise routine, but it also includes some really good advanced tips too!
Genuinely good tips, but...
...the "Guy" literally spends half the podcast either plugging the sponsor, plugging the Quick 'n' Dirty network, or plugging himself, whether it's his newsletter or his Facebook and Twitter pages.
Credit the guy for knowing his stuff (his tip about walk-to-run ratios got me running again, without pain) and for covering topics other might not (what to do about loose skin after weight loss) -- but, to put it in fitness terms, the podcast is pretty flabby and could use some tightening up.
I know he has to address all those promotions, but he needs to figure out how to do it in a more artful way so the podcast is about the content and not the constant plugging. He might want to get some quick n' dirty tips from his network colleague, Grammar Girl.
Another great podcast from Ben
Excellent! Ben condenses his vast knowledge into an easily digestible podcast with tips and information we can all put to use right away. This is great for all fitness levels and interests.
