The more eagle-eyed that follow my social media, or who visit my website regularly, would have noticed that I recently started a podcast called 2 Guys on Fitness with my good colleague, Allen Therisa.
Podcasts, which are essentially audio programmes that people download and listen to, have become increasingly popular over the past few years, partly because of the success of the iPhone. Apple (the firm behind the iPhone) allows, through its Podcasts application, for people to easily subscribe to the podcast of their choice and to follow podcast episodes as they are released.
In addition, subscribers can listen to podcasts via such streaming services as Spotify, TuneIn, Stitcher and Podomatic, (which hosts our podcast) and Google also offers its own podcast application in some international territories and which is similar to Apple's (though this has some way to go before it makes up ground on the Apple service).
The 2 Guys on Fitness podcast is for guys who go to the gym, whether they be hard-core or amateur gym-goers. The podcast offers advice and discussion on exercise, diet, healthy living and gym culture in monthly 30 minute episodes (and it is a lot of fun to put together and record).
So why did Allen and I decide to launch the podcast?
