by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  January 2, 2019

At this time of year, many of us are wanting to kick-start lifestyle change. But where do we start? Personal trainer to the Hollywood stars, David Higgins, shares his top tips on this week’s episode. David believes that no matter who you are, the issues and obstacles are the same. We discuss how to bring about lasting behaviour change and create long term healthy habits. We delve into the problems of exercising with incorrect posture and the importance of breathing correctly. David explains how he empowers people to take control of their bodies and live fuller, healthier lives. I hope you find this conversation useful.
