018 | After The Olympics: Building A Beautiful Life | with Sam Peszek

I am a Trojan and she is a Bruin, but somehow we get along.

An Olympic gymnast, NCAA champion, current broadcaster, host of the I Have Cool Friends podcast, and creator of the incredibly popular and successful Beam Queen Bootcamp, Sam Peszek is a force to be reckoned with.

I had a chance to meet Sam years ago, when she was still in school, and she has been building and creating and working to support young gymnasts and have the important conversations.

Our chat is really beautiful and you’ll be so impressed with Sam’s journey, and just how much she’s already done in her young life.
