We are only given one life to experience the best of this world, to make choices that support our dreams, to overcome the obstacles in our path. And we only get one body to do it in. Listen in as Amy Ledin explains how to build your health and show up as your Best Self!

Question Highlights

  • How did getting a cancer diagnosis change your view of health? What did that whole experience teach you?
  • Over time, you have embraced vulnerability to share the deep stuff that’s shaped you. What advice would you give people who don’t know how to lean into that?
  • A lot of times, people equate HARD with BAD. How do you see hard conversations? What is your best suggestion for having hard conversations in a way that feels safe?
  • I’m a big believer in creating routines that support the life I want, and I know you have developed a daily agreement process. Can you tell us about it? Why is it so important?
  • At one point, you lost 90 pounds and then proceeded to teach bootcamps for the US Navy. What was the key to your weight loss?
  • You and your husband, Erik, combined your fitness companies. How has working together helped you as a couple? Did you go through an adjustment period?

We are given one life here on this earth: One life to experience the best of this world. One life to make choices that support our dreams. One life to overcome the obstacles in our path.

And we only get one body to do it in.

So, how do we build our health (mental AND physical) and show up as our Best Self, even under difficult circumstances?
