Getting Fit with Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross

With the new year being here, it’s pretty easy to want to hop on the fitness train. We’ve all got some type of goals to achieve, and what better way to get in shape than with your very own Olympic personal trainer?

Former Olympic Gold Medalist, Sanya Richards-Ross, is ranked as one of the world’s best 400m runners and earned her first 400m Olympic gold medal in 2012. As a prominent leader on the four-time World Championship and three-time Olympic gold medal 4 x 400m team, Richards-Ross is considered one of the world’s fastest women. She has the most sub-50 second 400m races in history under her belt.

As reigning champ of the 400m from the 2005 World Outdoor Championships and the 2007 USA Outdoor Championships, Richards-Ross finished her 14-year career on July 1, 2016 to a standing ovation at the University of Oregon’s historic Hayward Field.

And we’ve got good news. She can be your fitness coach.

As no stranger to the business world, the pro-athlete and entrepreneur is going back to her roots. Besides two lucrative businesses that she runs with her sister and her husband, retired NFL cornerback Aaron Ross, Richards-Ross is now delving into an amazing tech project called MyQuest.

The online program and app helps people to easily achieve a wide range of goals from learning to run faster, executing proper weight loss strategies, implementing useful productivity hacks and even learning how to do the perfect handstand. MyQuest officially launched last month.

“For over a decade, training and regimented activities have been a significant part of my life,” the star reflects.

Through MyQuest, Richards-Ross can coach users by implementing the same methods and tactics that helped her bring home the gold. Users can strengthen their mental power, improve their running techniques, learn how to nourish their bodies before and after the run, and discover the most powerful tricks to increase speed.

Whether you are a weekend runner, a professional athlete, or simply into sports and want to become stronger physically and mentally, this app will help move you forward. In this exclusive program, Sanya and her team will be there for you, every step of the way. They will answer questions, motivate you, and make sure you achieve your personal best.

For those new to the fitness journey, Sanya has a few words of advice.

“Work out early and don’t put it off,” the Olympian states. “Set attainable goals, but don’t make your goals too big that you become discouraged, and remember your nutrition. It’s great to workout and set new physical goals, but you can’t neglect what you put in your body.”
