Quick reminder : in this week's Gymchat we'll be discussing the nutritional potential of a bit of dietary supplementation; whether that involves a little fine-tuning or a major overhaul.

No matter what you currently take - and why - we'd love to hear about it. See you there.

What do you take, when and why?

This week we're looking at vitamins & minerals, protein shakes and everything else you take to help fine-tune your regular diet. What's necessary, who should be taking it and the many benefits on offer.

Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than personal trainer Derek Peruo, who you'll find over at Renaissance Fitness. Fantastic.

See you there.
