We are so excited to kick off this season with Gabby Reece who is a legend on and off the court. Not only is she a Pro Beach Volleyball World Champion, but she is also a New York Times best selling author, model, actress, Nike’s first female spokeswoman, TV host, and leader in the world of health and wellness. Gabby is an avid proponent of empowering people to take responsibility for their own health and together with her husband, surfing legend, Laird Hamilton, she founded XPT – Extreme Performance Training. Gabby has become a role model to women worldwide in achieving peak fitness, good health, and overall well-being for themselves and their entire family.
