“The Chris Lieto Podcast” Goes Beneath the Surface to Tell Inspiring Stories of How to Live Your Fullest

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 28, 2020 – World champion athletes may seem like they are blessed with super powers and immune to issues that most “mortals” face. But on the inside, they are all human and experience the same challenges and controversies that any “normal” person does in their day-to-day life. In his new podcast series, multiple IRONMAN Champion triathlete, Chris Lieto, will go beneath the surface with some of the world’s best athletes and experts to share never-told stories that will inspire and educate everyone – athlete or otherwise – on how to live their fullest.

“The Chris Lieto Podcast,” presented by Addaday and Gatorade Endurance, will broadcast in both audio and video at ChrisLieto.com/podcast (and anywhere else where podcasts are typically found) and feature guests across the sporting spectrum, from CrossFit to cycling and from swimming to surfing, including experts in athletic performance and nutrition.

“When it comes to athletes, so many stories are told about how they shaved off seconds, how they jumped higher, how they scored more goals. I wanted to go beneath the surface to tell real human stories to inspire everyone from athletes, to moms, to busy executives,” said Chris Lieto. “As a former pro athlete, I feel that my guests can relate to me and as a result, open up more than they might with a non-athlete. I can promise there will be a few tears shed!”

Lieto’s first show will debut May 30 featuring four-time IRONMAN Champion Lionel Sanders, followed by Courtney Dauwalter, one of the world’s best ultrarunners on Global Running Day (June 3). Other guests will include US National Team rock climbing sensation Brooke Raboutou; the fastest American IRONMAN triathlete and #2 in the world, Timothy O’Donnell; New York Times best-selling author and health and fitness coach, Ben Greenfield; World Surf League World Championship surfer Clifton James “C.J.” Hobgood; plus author and exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist . Stacy Sims, MSC, PhD.
