MondayMotivation: 7 Wellness Podcasts To Keep Your Head In The Game

Podcasts are the ‘It thing’ right now and there are so many to choose from. Whether you are a sports fan, a music lover or just like to hear advice and opinions, podcasts are easy to access and fun to listen to. When we think of our health and wellness we may not think of listening to podcasts. We may think of a physician or even a personal trainer to ask for help with our personal fitness/wellness struggles. However, to maintain a healthy and sustainable fitness regimen we need both motivation and inspiration.

So here are 7 wellness-related podcasts to help keep your head (and body) in the game:
