#146 Greg Foster - Goals, physical activity and mental health

April 3rd, 2019

This week I talk to Greg Foster. Greg is the co-owner of Unit 22 Strength and Conditioning in Northampton.

I have been a member at that gym for roughly 3 years and have overcome many hurdles and improved my general wellbeing, largely due to Greg, and his fellow coaches.

I wanted to talk to Greg as he is the most qualified person I know with regards to health and fitness and seen up to 200+ members several times a week.

We had a catch up from our last podcast (episode #09 November 2015) and go on to discuss the science behind improving mental health through physical activity.

I have received no payment for promoting Unit 22, but I do promote it because it has helped and continues to help me.
