Men’s Health & Fitness Podcasts where do you start?


I get asked all the time what's the best place to look online for quality content especially for men who are time poor, They mightn't have the time or energy to read books, or scroll through the interwebz searching for quality blogs.


Side Note: If blogs are your thing you'll love this > Top 10 Men’s Fitness Blogs for 2021


So the best recommendation for busy dudes are podcast's.

You can listen while you travel

While you workout

You can listen at 1.5 speed

They are usually easy to consume and conversational

They usually have 3-5 key lessons or takeaways you can apply


Which make them a great option right?


Over the last 5 - 10 years men's health & fitness podcast have exploded.


Podcasting in general has become huge and it's gonna continue to grow according to Magna Forecasts which predict at least 97 million Americans will listen to at least one podcast a week, which is good and bad.

It's great that there will be more people listening to podcast and more podcast being produced in all niche's especially men's health and fitness podcasts.


But every time a market gets bigger two types of bottom feeders flood in. 


Bottom Feeder: A member of a group of very low social status who survives by any means possible.

Bottom Feeder 1: MLM - Multi Level Marketing 

Basically anyone who prays on peoples fear and insecurities with the goal of extracting as much money from them as possible.


Within the fitness industry these people will usually be trying to sell some pills potions or shakes...


And very often use blogs and podcast to push their agenda {Maximum Cash Extraction} They usually have pseudo experts Doctors or scientist who give their claims credibility, but if you dig a little digger you'll usually find the experts credentials don't stack up, Remember Dr. Gillian McKeith of channel 4's You Are What You Eat... here's her education BA (linguistics, 1981), MA (international relations, 1984) "Doctorate" from non-accredited American college. Yet she was on T.V telling millions of people how to eat for health.


Think anything that starts with the words...

- Rapid 

- Shredz 

- Extreme 

- Scientifically Proven 


Basically things like this...

Claims above may or may not be true LOL...

Bottom Feeder 2: Bedroom Guru's 

Now anyone with a yeti mic, MacBook Pro and Dr. Dre Beats can produce their own podcast. That might be talking absolute bollix but if they have good sound quality flashy graphics and position themselves correctly how could the average man on the street know these guys haven't a fiddlers about health and fitness.
