Gabrielle Reece is a beautiful human being. I don’t just say that in reference to the former Volleyball virtuoso’s modeling career, or how she dominated the 90’s with her striking looks and indomitable will. Over twenty years later, she fully understands that her currency extends beyond the superficial and is rooted deep in her mindset. From a very young age Gabrielle knew that looks weren’t everlasting – the same goes for athletic talent. Instead of defining herself through the incredible accomplishments of her 20’s, she instead forged an iron will that lasts a lifetime.
With her volleyball and modelling career in the rearview, Gabby is now an author, mother and fitness inspiration to women across the globe. Gabby and her husband, surfer Laird Hamilton, have created the XPT (Extreme Performance Training) workout to encourage an active lifestyle. She’s the host of the NBC competition series “Strong” and creates incredibly inspiring blog posts designed to foster confidence through her website www.gabriellereece.com.
I didn’t know what to expect from our time together on the IQ stage, I was just excited to talk to Gabrielle Reece. By the end I was blown away by her wisdom, wit and winning attitude about a life well-lived. She dispensed nugget after nugget of tangible wisdom that’s usable for everyone willing to escape the Matrix. Watch this episode, it can change you.
