Welcome to the Health Interrupted Podcast.
Life is full of interruptions. Sometimes a health issue can stop you in your tracks.
The road to optimal health is a bumpy one – complete with children, partners, work, life. Even if you have the best intentions to take back your health, something inevitably gets in the way. You’ve decided, this is it! You’re getting your health plan back on track. You meal prepped, you downloaded your meditation app and you set your alarm an hour earlier to workout.

The reality of it is, there’s no food in the fridge, you overslept and there’s no time to workout. Sound familiar?

Every week, join Celebrity Fitness Trainer Gina Lombardi and Former Miss America Laura Kaeppeler, as they talk to real people who achieved wellness despite health setbacks big and small as well as experts who reveal their secrets to optimal health.

    Episode 65: Hope In the Heartache

    Episode 65: Hope In the Heartache

    Travis was raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Kelly was raised in Fairfax, Virginia, and our family currently resides in Kensington, Maryland. College sweethearts who met in Abilene, Texas, our life together has taken us to Dallas, Raleigh, Fairfax, D.C., Nashville, and the Maryland suburbs of D.C.
    We have been married over twenty years and have three children – Bennett (age 14), Jackson (age 11), and Reagan (age 9). Bennett has quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and is obsessed with “The Wiggles.” Jackson enjoys legos, aviation, and nearly all sports. Reagan is our family artist who loves soccer and basketball. Most importantly, the Christian faith was the foundation of each of our upbringings – and is the cornerstone of our family life.
    Cheering for our kids while savoring the big and little moments of life – along with chips and queso – are a few simple pleasures that we enjoy.

    Episode 64: Bruce McLaughlin, He Said, She S.A.I.D: From Conviction To Exoneration

    Episode 64: Bruce McLaughlin, He Said, She S.A.I.D: From Conviction To Exoneration

    It was in 1996 that the police burst into Bruce's home while he was sleeping and arrested and handcuffed him—all while his 10-year-old son was watching wide-eyed in terror.
    Now, 25 years later, there are so many emotions tied to this fateful day. He still remembers the surprise, the fear, the anxiety, and the rage at being hauled off to jail for a crime he did not commit. He's thankfully now at peace with the tragedy of being falsely accused, arrested, and incarcerated. He is  saddened by the lasting impact this turn of events has had on his four children. And he is still amazed that he was able to exonerate himself—after 4 long years. But, mostly, he is grateful for the opportunity now as a man, as a father, and as an attorney to help others understand the peril and to avoid the trap of false accusations made during divorce proceedings. That is the reason he chose to share my story. Hope for a better future for parents and their children.

    Episode 61: Bill Rasmussen: Founder of ESPN, Meets Parkinson’s with a Spirited Fight

    Episode 61: Bill Rasmussen: Founder of ESPN, Meets Parkinson’s with a Spirited Fight

    It's safe to say that Bill Rasmussen changed the face of sports and the face of television. His brainstorm for a 24-hour cable sports television station, born out of adversity, has become the WORLDWIDE leader in sports. Originally called the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network. He founded ESPN in the summer of 1978, and had his innovative brainstorm for an all-sports cable TV network within days of being fired by the New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association. By July 14th he had sought out cable tv companies, sponsors, investors and partners and By Sept 7th, 1979 ESPN was on the air for the first time! Just 14 months after his moment of inspiration.
    ESPN has been serving billions of sports fans in more than 200 countries around the world, and Bill’s creativity, ingenuity, and drive to get the job done is the main reason. 
    Bill has received numerous awards and honors over his career. He was named “THE FATHER OF CABLE SPORTS” by USA TODAY AND  he earned a place in the  “The Sports 100,” honoring the 100 most important people in American Sports History. He was later honored as one of the “40 for the Ages” as one of 40 people who significantly altered and elevated the world of sport in the last half of the twentieth Century. 
    More than 40 years later, Bill faces a different challenge: Parkinson’s disease. But just as he faced numerous obstacles in founding ESPN, he’s confident that they can be overcome with a spirited fight.
