The Best Fitness & Wellness Podcasts You Can Listen To

According to a poll by Edison, 44% of Americans listen to podcasts, and Apple shared at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June that more than 550,000 podcasts exist. That’s a lot to listen to! With subjects spanning just about any topic you can think of, it’s overwhelming to pick just one. Luckily, our community has done the work for you. Needless to say, we’re adding these shows to our listening library.

“Nutrition Diva”

“In each episode, the host, who’s a nutritionist, covers a topic like pros and cons of a ketogenic diet or what postbiotics are and gives a concise, clear explanation with real studies to back it up. She basically does all your research for you on whatever you’re interested in and then gives her professional opinion on it in a 10 to 15-minute long episode that comes out once a week. Plus, she doesn’t ever give outrageous weight loss advice or make crazy claims like “you can lose ten pounds in two days.” –Leslie C., Brooklyn, New York

“Coffee and Kettlebells”

“The host and Burn Boot Camp co-founder, Morgan Kline, interviews experts about a variety of topics including organic eating, postpartum depression and bodyweight happiness. I like that she’s relatable and brings up topics I’m genuinely interested in.” –Heidi N., Rochester, Minn.

“Food Heaven”

“I like that the hosts, Wendy and Jess, are two female black Latina dietitians, who have numerous roles in their communities — working with clients, leading groups, volunteering at local farmers markets. They make nutrition easy, simple and cost-effective. I also love their banter, upbeat attitudes and trueness to themselves.” –Amy H., Minneapolis

“Yoga Girl”

“Rachel Brathen is so raw and transparent with her From the Heart listeners, which is something we don’t always get to see from influencers like herself. It’s so easy to stay engaged with her podcast because she’s always discussing something relevant to the listener—like body image, vulnerability or finding happiness—or giving us a peek inside her personal life.” –Madison O., Iowa City, Iowa

“Terrible Thanks For Asking

“It kind of feels like a bowl of warm chicken noodle soup. None of the things it tackles are funny at first glance, but host Nora McInerny talks about them anyway: death, depression, abuse, mental health. Every episode is someone’s real story and as a result, it’s warm, real, comforting and sometimes funny. It’s very refreshing among my podcast library.” –Gretchen B., Elk River, Minn.
