The Basics of Health, Fitness, and Nutrition – Podcast Ep. 16


Welcome to the 16th episode of the Living Healthy Podcast, presented by LA Fitness.

On this episode of the Living Healthy Podcast, we speak with a doctor named Bobby, a dietitian named Candy, and a personal trainer named Mark(y). (I may have added the “y” just to keep things consistent.)

All guests are experts in their field and share their knowledge with us on the topics of health, nutrition, and fitness. This episode may be all about the basics, but it’s anything but boring.

Stick around to the end of the episode for a special announcement (Hint: you may win something pretty cool!)
