7. Melissa Alcantara: Say yes to you
By BBC Radio 4
Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?
Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.
Melissa Alcantara is best known as Kim Kardashian's personal trainer, but it was her own personal journey, from yo-yo dieting and experiencing post-natal depression to finding happiness through starting her own work out plan which inspired Kim in the first place. Today Melissa is a writer, owns her own fitness brand, and still trains Kim six days a week!
In this podcast, Joe hears Melissa's inspirational story. They talk about parenting, the importance of being honest on social media and their shared passion for hitting the road on their motorbikes. Melissa explains that as much as she loves riding through the Californian canyons, she also finds peace and calm on her surfboard, or walking along the beach at daybreak.
Summer holiday’s been postponed and you’re feeling down? Forget about it. This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
