Hot Work-Outs From Social Diva Lexi. CrunchGear's Latest Fitness Gadgets. Milk 101 With Eating Well Mag. Plus Charles Staley.
The most entertaining weight loss and fitness podcast show on radio. Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy radio show podcast broadcasting live each week from Atlanta, GA, USA.
On tonight's show, Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about some of the hottest exercise classes that are sweeping the gyms from Social Diva Lexi Tabback. A self-described Jersey Girl, Lexi has tried a whole bunch of the wackiest exercise classes and has reported back her findings. Are you up for Samurai Sword Fighting? What about a little trapeze and aerial dance? Listen to Lexi recount her experiences with these exercise classes and others. For more information about Social Diva, Lexi, her latest book "How To Be A Social Diva" go to their website www.socialdiva.com. Social Diva lets you know where the hippest, coolest, most happening places are in your city. It is Lexi's job (and the other Divas like Peg Samuel) to personally check out these places and report back to you so you don't waste your time. As Lexi always says, "Diva's don't sweat, they glow" Check them out.
We also had John Biggs on from CrunchGear and RunningGearReview sharing his take on the latest fitness gadgets. Before you buy any gadget I strongly suggest you check out both of these websites. On this show John told us all about: wireless headsets, an ipod pedometer combo, a stereo bluetooth headphone thingy, a waterproof mp3 player case and so much more. His blogs are must reads for gadget lovers. Check them out at www.crunchgear.com and www.runninggearreview.com
And what a special treat it was to have the return of Nicci Micco and Eating Well magazine. If you haven't already, check this magazine out offline and online. You will not find a better photographed, more intelligent food magazine. Tonight Nicci told us all about milk. She talked about cow snd goat milk, soy milk, almond milk , hemp milk, organic milk. She even explained to the Fat Guy that it is truly impossible to milk a cat. they have a lab where they test things so that must be true. You can listen to the show and learn all about milk or check out the article in the latest issue of Eating Well magazine. Also go to their website and subscribe to their free email newsletters they are awesome www.eatingwell.com
But that's not all, this show also had on Charles Staley the author of Muscle Logic and other great books. He has appeared on the TODAY show as well as The CBS Early Show and shared his counter-intuitive approach to weight training and fitness. Charles told the fat guy to invert his reps when he strength trains for better results. Dr Fitness had to tell Charles that the Fat Guy doesn't get into the gym much. Charles recommends that instead of 3 sets of 10 you do 10 sets of 3 in the same amount of time. Less reps more sets. The Fat Guy calls this "The Joy of Sets" To learn more check out Charles website www.staleytraining.com and www.charlesstaley.com
And the Fat Guy wants to give a big thanks to RedGrrl who emailed him and said nice things. Believe it or not, the Fat Guy does not get a lot of fan mail. So thank you RedGrrl for taking the time to email him. And yes hot mom, Jennifer Nicole Lee is "that peppy." By the way, this weekend is JNL's bikini bootcamp in South Beach. Good luck to her with that.
Kathie Larkin was with us again and she shared important information about her progress as a tennis player and a personal trainer. You know Kathie as the host of Real Savvy Moms. Real Savvy Moms is a great show for moms that is available on most Public Broadcasting Stations around the US and online. Remember Kathie is one of the top feet and legs model's out there... she is so hot she got to be a body double for Alyssa Milano in that Veet commercial that is on TV 24 hours a day. Be sure to check out Kathie's website www.getkathie.com. Also check out her hosting skills on www.RealSavvyMoms.com.
Remember we are now on every morning in Michigan. On radio station WKNW. They asked us to create a Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy "Wellness Minute." So now a new Wellness Minute runs on that station each morning at around 7:40. Each Wellness Minute features the doctor and I going over 5 of his best tips on a given wellness subject like: losing weight, getting in shape, living a healthy lifestyle, etc. We're working on ways to make those tips available to all our listeners. If you have a favorite radio station that you think would benefit from our Wellness Minutes send them an email telling them about it and who knows maybe you can hear us everyday too.
Also once again, I need you to please do me a favor. My nine year kid Max made his radio debut in his new show "Kid Power Radio." This is a great show for your kids. It is kind of like a kids version of David Spade's "Showbiz Show" on Comedy Central or Entertainment Tonight mixed in with a little Wayne's World. Max recaps the week in entertainment and gives his take and review of what he liked and didn't like on TV, at the movies, video games, in books and in music and even restaurant reviews. Please go to his site and download the show for your kid. He had a big show recently he interviewed Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. And if your kid sends Max an email he'll read it on the air next week. The show can be found at www.kidpowerradio.com and you can email Max at RadioStarMax at Yahoo.com. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you his show is rocketing up the charts!!!
