The Podcast

Tonos Radio began through a series of conversations between Sabrena and Matt around our frustrations with the fitness industry. Our goal with the podcast is to provide a humorous look into evidence-based health and fitness practices using our Kaizen principle.

Health, fitness, nutrition, and weight-loss are all difficult subjects to navigate. The industry is full of myths and gurus. This podcast exists to present evidence-based practices in a funny, but straightforward manner.

Tune in to the podcast each week for a few laughs and plenty of information.
