Javier Bragado is an expert in nutrition and other health issues. Try to keep up to date with new research to uncover the latest discoveries and trends on this website. Plus, she’s under pressure from a family of dietitian nutritionists and CrossFitters, so she better be precise about what she writes about food and fitness.
On a professional level, when podcasts didn’t exist, Javier Bragado worked for several radio stations (Onda Cero, Cadena Ser), although he now focuses on writing articles on the Internet. In fact, it is quite common to find him writing (sometimes very lengthy) sports news writers after two decades of experience with the EFE news agency and the Colpisa news agency. Particular attention is paid to less traditional profiles in sports such as cycling, tennis, football and athletics of any kind.
After graduating from Complutense University, he complements his profile as a journalist with his later career in geography and history at UNED, so you can often see him writing about the great and small characters of humanity, research and studies of the past.
He relies on his scientific knowledge and respect for professional historians and their sources. Which does not contradict his eclectic love of reading Eastern and Western books and comics.
On the other hand, Javier Bragado also loves to play sports from his own experience and was involved in several martial arts and combat sports in his youth, although he had no competitive experience.
If you’ve come across his signed report on John Wick, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Michelle Yeoh and the action community, know that he’s among those who love this candy-giving choreography. However, he has now taken up swimming because he is no longer young and prefers not to get hit in the head while taking care of his cardio.
If you see an error in one of his texts, you can let him know through one of his social networks, because he is always ready to thank you for these notifications (and correct when necessary). Just in case, make sure that the second name is “Herrero” so as not to confuse him with the excellent photographer from the world of music Javier Bragado.
