The new fitness podcast that could save your life too
Kick start your 2022 fitness goals with the all-new podcast ‘How Fitness Saved My Life’ on LiSTNR.
Former American college football player, wrestler turned half-ironman competitor, and strength coach, Alexa Towersey, and ex-competitive gymnast, BMX racer and now multidisciplined athlete and coach, Jenna Louise today launched the inspirational new podcast.
How Fitness Saved My Life is a podcast aimed to expand our understanding of what the human body is capable of – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Host ‘Action Alexa’ battled through significant health issues having died on an operating table four times and she credits fitness with turning her life around after overcoming alcoholism and addiction. Her own personal struggles have inspired her to become a passionate advocate for positive physical and mental health. She now trains some of Australia’s top businesspeople, athletes, and Hollywood stars.
When a back injury stopped her Olympics gymnastics dream in its tracks, host Jenna Louise found new ways to challenge herself, becoming a qualified master trainer as well as nutrition coach and mentor. The self-confessed fitness fanatic has wowed viewers with her strength and agility on the Nine Network’s Australian Ninja Warrior and Seven’s Ultimate Tag.
In each episode Alexa and Jenna invite a guest in to share their incredible story of recovery, from surviving life-threatening situations, to recovering from terrible accidents, to using trauma to drive their success, and how they’ve rebuilt their minds and bodies after this event to achieve something they never thought would be possible for them.
The shocking but inspirational stories, along with the guests’ advice for people struggling to commit and achieve their goals, is the ultimate motivational content that will leave listeners ready to take on their own challenges.
LiSTNR Original Podcasts Head of Content, Jen Goggin, said: “Jenna and Alexa’s passion to teach people to overcome their own self-limiting beliefs in all areas of their lives, combined with their guests’ stories of surviving and thriving after experiencing situations and accidents that would be the undoing of most of us, has led to a podcast that is uplifting, informative and inspiring. We look forward to its success.”
Alex and Jenna said: “We’re so pumped to finally bring this project to life. These are the role models and the conversations we wish we’d had through our tough times, and we just hope that the listeners feel as empowered and inspired listening to their stories as we did in being able to share them.”
