Former American college football player, wrestler turned half-ironman competitor, and strength coach, Alexa Towersey, (‘Action Alexa;), and ex-competitive gymnast, BMX racer and now multidiscipline high-performance athlete and coach, Jenna Louise have launched their inspirational new podcast, How Fitness Saved My Life, via LiSTNR.
How Fitness Saved My Life is a podcast that will expand our understanding of what the human body is capable of – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
In each episode, Towersey and Louise 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.
These 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.
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 business people, athletes, and Hollywood stars.
When a back injury stopped her Olympics gymnastics dream in its tracks, host Louise found new ways to challenge herself, becoming a qualified master trainer as well as a 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.
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.”
