  • Jana’e Michelle (@ThisCurvyGirlsFitness) has one major goal in life: to go skydiving.

    In order to do that, she needs to hit a goal weight of 250 pounds. Here’s the catch - Jana’e rarely ever steps on a scale. So, how will she do it?

    The answer is simple, by giving herself grace.

    When Jana’e was diagnosed with a number of weight-related health problems two years ago, she was also struggling with depression for the first time in her life. Jana’e knew she needed to do a lot more to better her life and happiness, but was paralyzed by a fear of failure.

    Fast forward to 2021, and Jana’e has turned every fear into positive, daily progress. She eats better, works out regularly, and inspires a community of 65,000 people to join in on her journey. In this 2-part episode series, we learn how Jana’e managed to change her health when she knew her life depended on it, how she stays positive by loving the progress, and why she avoids stepping on a scale at all costs.

  • In July 2019, Jessica Beniquez discovered a lump under her armpit. It wasn’t long until her worst fears were confirmed.

    She had cancer.

    The irony was, Jessica was the healthiest she had ever been. A few years prior she had committed to fitness and nutrition and lost 170 pounds. Now she was in a fight for her life, and her commitment to health was about to be tested like never before.

    Before changing her lifestyle, Jessica weighed more than 300 pounds, and felt so unhappy and uncomfortable in her own body that she avoided social situations, even with close friends and family. Now she inspires others with her story, and boasts more than 1.5 million followers who go to her for daily doses of positivity and tips for healthier living.

    In this episode, we learn how Jessica achieved two incredible health-related triumphs. First, how she took control of her health and lost the weight that was making her feel isolated and insecure. Second, how she remained positive, determined, and committed to her health while battling stage four Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Jessica even shares her experience going to the gym for the first time bald-headed from chemo, and what it’s like to finally be cancer-free.

  • Kalvin and Angelo, aka “The Vision Twins,” are beloved by their 2.3 million social media followers for high-energy, incredibly fun HIIT workouts.

    But before they rose to internet fame (and WayBetter popularity) with their infectious positive energy, the twin brothers struggled with obesity for most of their young lives. Their father was incarcerated when Kalvin and Angelo were young, and they distinctly remember turning to emotional eating to cope with his absence.

    Since the “aha” moment in their senior year of high school that finally sparked a change, Kalvin and Angelo have lost a combined 290 pounds. In this episode, we’ll hear what it’s like to become the person you’ve always wanted to be...and more importantly, what it actually takes to get there.

  • Jimmy Choi is a modern day Renaissance man when it comes to physical fitness. To date, he’s run 16 marathons, 105 half marathons, set world records for burpees and push-ups, and will be competing on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior for the 5th year in a row.

    So you might never guess that Jimmy was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease back in 2003 at just 27 years old. This diagnosis marked a turning point in his life, and ushered in a period he calls his “dark years.”

    In this episode, Jimmy shares how he emerged from this dark place and became someone capable of completing marathons and setting world records, all while living with a nervous system disorder that can make even small tasks feel difficult.
