What are Motivation Assist podcasts?

Motivation Assist podcasts are digital audio files made available on the Internet for downloading to your own computer or your mobile phone.

Listening to podcasts is really the same as listening to the radio. The main differences being the Motivation Assist podcasts are distributed via the Internet and you can listen to them whenever you want: you don’t have to tune in at a specific time, it’s all there on-demand.

The Motivation Assist podcasts are available as a series and the new installments can be received by subscribers automatically. All you have to do is click on the subscribe button on iTunes.

Supposedly, the term podcast comes from a combination of the words iPod (a personal digital audio player made by Apple) and broadcasting. This only dates back to 2005 when Apple added podcasting to iTunes.

Today, the iTunes store is the world’s largest repository of podcasts, it’s free and has versions for both Apple and Android devices. For those reasons, the Motivation Assist podcast series is available through iTunes (click here to download).

If you already have iTunes installed just select the Podcasts option from the drop down menu and search for Motivation Weight Management.



You’ll then see our current list of podcasts.





To subscribe so that you are automatically alerted when the next one is available, just click on the Subscribe button.


It’s that simple.

By the way, if you do not want to use iTunes then all the Motivation Assist podcasts are available on the Motivation website where you’ll find a blog post for each podcast.

Each podcast is easily identifiable by the Motivation Assist Podcasts logo. The table below lists our podcasts to date:
