Starting this week All About Fitness is moving to a two-podcast-per-week model where one podcast will feature a full, complete interview with an expert from a various fitness-related field where the focus will be on what you can be doing to improve your fitness level during the aging process, or how you can use exercise to slow down the aging process. The second podcast will be short and sweet where I will feature a brief review of a piece of relevant research, discuss a new trend or talk about the benefits of using a specific fitness product. The interview podcast will be between 25-45 minutes long and the second podcast, a kind of verbal blog, will be less than ten minutes.
Whenever I am first introduced to a new "expert" or authority in a particular field I am always interested about his or her background and why I should be investing my time listening to what he or she has to say. On this first short format of All About Fitness I provide a brief overview of my education and work experience in the fitness industry. No, I don't have a seven-figure following on social media, nor do I have six-pack abs or buns of steel (although my glutes are pretty well developed - thanks to kettlebell swings and deadlifts). But I have worked (and continue to work) for the two largest personal training certifications: the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Talking about yourself is always tough, you want to provide some background about your legitimacy to be viewed as an expert but you don't want to appear to be what comedian Dane Cook refers to as 'too bragadocious.' (Not sure if that's a word, but I'm going for it).
Episode 21 provides a brief overview of my knowledge, skills and abilities and why I'm doing this podcast.
