Tommy Rivs Q&A

Tommy, in Road to Recovery Part 4: Australia, the journey takes a new direction from the previous parts. Tell us about that.

“I wanted to change the direction compared to the first three parts of the Road to Recovery Series. I spent a lot of time talking about the difficult aspects of the last few years, some of my health struggles, and some of the things I’d learned emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. 

“In Part 4, I want to, more than anything, convince whoever is watching that, whether they believe it or not, they have it within themselves to run. That running isn’t a punishment. It’s something that actually is just incredibly joyful, and it’s something that can bring a lot of really positive things to your life.”

What inspired the workouts in Part 4?

“This is my personal progression, and this is the stage I’m in right now. I really want to provide an opportunity to plant the seed, the idea, and gently introduce running. And we’re just going to start looking forward to what the future holds rather than looking back as we did in the previous parts. So it’s a shift in direction as well as a shift in perspective.”

What advice can you offer for iFIT members new to this series, and how can they prepare for success before getting started?

“Honestly? Just start! Just have the courage to show up. If you’re caught up in comparing yourself to other people, you’re going to compare yourself to everything around you. Everybody’s at a different place on their own fitness journey. Trust in the fact that if you continue to show up day after day, these workouts do have the ability to radically transform your life.

“For , I ask that you do the first three parts. That would help immensely because then we’re on the same page, and it’s a gentle transition. It’ll be time well spent, and they’re incredible locations, and we see a lot of really cool things together.”
