    REINVENTED with Celebrity Trainer Ted Ryce

    In one of the most powerful, gut-wrenching and inspirational podcast episodes yet, Jen goes one-on-one with celebrity trainer, peak performance health coach and motivational speaker, Ted Ryce. Ted has worked with Fortune 500 CEOs, busy professionals and celebrities including Richard Branson, Ricky Martin, and Robert Downey, Jr. But what many don't know about Ted, is that his path to becoming a high-performance coach was beset by unimaginable tragedy that crushed the entire South Florida community and captured the nation’s attention after his 9-year-old brother, Jimmy Ryce, was kidnapped, raped and murdered at the hands of a sexual predator on his way home from school.

    But the extraordinary circumstances that Ted lived through didn’t stop there. On this podcast episode, they discuss how Ted managed to reinvent himself to pursue a legendary life after losing his entire family over the years, his decision to ride rollercoasters at Universal Studios after burying his father that inspired his theory, “You can’t be sad on a rollercoaster!” He also shares how he turned his pain into power by helping others through health and fitness, the secret to staying fit at any age, ways to reduce unmanaged stress, depression and anxiety, as well as the controversial “magic ratio” for achieving happiness.

Great interview! Inspired me.

Jen brings a natural warmth and excitement to every conversation, especially as the host of this podcast. Her interview with Sean Paul was enjoyable and informative, bringing listeners on a journey in an unexpected way. I’m over interview podcasts featuring a guest where the host has an obvious lack of understanding, but Jen goes above and beyond to research, understand, and share her guest’s journey with everyone. I get the feeling this podcast will inspire me to take some exciting steps in my life and career. Definitely take a listen!

Loved the Sean Paul interview. Love his music! I am totally down for a white boy/ brown boy remix collaboration between Chet Hanks and Sean Paul. Excited to see who’s next!
