The Overcomers podcast interviews people about overcoming adversity. We believe that adversity can become your advantage. We ask people to tell us how their past has built muscles instead of scars. The topics that we cover include abuse, addiction, incarceration, depression, anxiety, health problems, loss of income, loss of employment. Each person will share how they navigated these situations in life to become the Overcomer that they are today.
S12: Episode 10 - Yvette Salva’s Personal Journey and Recovery from Different Types of Addiction
During childhood, we learned the importance of self-love, and indeed, we genuinely loved ourselves without considering the idea of not doing so. However, as we age, our perception of beauty changes, leading us to conform to societal norms to feel attractive.
That is the story of our guest for this episode, Yvette Salva. She came from Spain and migrated to the USA in her teenage years. She didn't feel she belonged and was doing a lot of things to prove that she belonged. In that process, she became addicted to an eating disorder, progressing from anorexia and bulimia to alcohol and then drug addiction. She hit rock bottom and thought to herself that she was done.
This episode offers valuable insights into overcoming challenges, showcasing Yvette's journey from adversity to achieving what she once deemed impossible. Now living her dream, she not only embodies personal success but also uplifts and empowers women to become the best versions of themselves.

S12: Episode 5 - Exploring Deep Health Coaching with Sarah Reynolds
Life should not be taken lightly. As humans, we all face inevitable stressors, regardless of our current experiences or achievements. It's crucial to maintain our mental, emotional, and other aspects of health, not just our physical bodies. This is because we are more than just the physical aspect that many people focus on when they go to the gym to stay fit.
Sarah Reynolds understands this truth. With her bachelor's degree in Psychology, concentration in sports psychology, and over a decade in the fitness industry, her approach to health delves deeper than merely going to the gym or eating healthy foods.
Tune in to this episode of the Overcomer's Podcast as we learn from Sarah Reynolds about the importance of deep coaching. She emphasizes that health encompasses more than the physical; numerous aspects need consideration to achieve one’s definition of a “fulfilled” life.
I had an incredible time talking with Travis. We truly had a special heartfelt conversation. Travis is very welcoming, engaging, and insightful. I admire his courage opening up his story too! All the best!
