Fitness In Post (general)

Hello loyal Fitness In Post podcast listeners, it’s been a long time since we connected last as I’ve been on hiatus during the rebranding process making the transformation from Fitness In Post to Optimize Yourself. I finally have amazing news that I’ve been waiting to share with you for months...the podcast is officially back!

Before you get too excited, it’s super important that you take a couple quick actions if you want to continue listening to future episodes. The new show is now under the name ‘Optimize Yourself’ in a new feed starting at episode 1.

So what does this mean for you?

Well if you want to listen to new episodes as they’re released, you have to subscribe to the new podcast, but don’t worry it will only take you 60 seconds.

Your first option is to visit optimizeyourself.me/subscribe where I provide links to subscribe via iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and TuneIn, just to name a few sources.

Or your second option is just to do a quick search for ‘Optimize Yourself’ in whatever app you’re listening with right now and the show should pop right up. Simply click Subscribe, and you’re in like Flynn!

If you loved the Fitness In Post podcast, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. I’ll be releasing more episodes on a regular basis, covering a wider variety of topics, and doing multiple monthly prize giveaways of great products that I personally endorse and use every single day.

If you want to see what the latest giveaway is, just visit optimizeyourself.me/win to learn about the latest prizes available.

Thanks so much for being a loyal ‘Fitness In Post’ listener, I can’t wait to see you over at the new show after you subscribe.

Thank you for listening. Be well.
