Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll talk about authentic fitness. In 1979, Diana Nyad stroked her way to the longest swim in history, for both men and women. The distance, from the island of Bimini to the Florida shore, record still stands today. In the ten years preceding that swim, Diana was the greatest long-distance swimmer in the world; she was honored with her induction into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003. She is heard each week on NPR, each Thursday on “All Things Considered”, and is the sports business reporter for “Marketplace”. She’s reported for Fox Sport News, ABC and CNBC, covering Olympic games and scores of other events around the globe. Her colleague Bonnie Stoll is known as one of the quickest and most powerful players on the women’s professional racquetball tour. She is now one of L.A.’s most respected personal trainers, one whom people from all walks of life, with a wide variety of goals, gravitate to for non-nonsense style and her charismatic personality. Together, they’ve created BRAVABODY! a comprehensive DVD-and-book package series from two world-class athletes now your personal coaches. Come meet Diana and Bonnie, and learn what motivates them to motivate women their age – in their 50s – to rev metabolism, burn more calories, keep osteoporosis at bay, and to make sure this is the prime of their lives.
