Derrick Henry Shares His Fitness Motivation

Trained is a podcast exploring the cutting edge of holistic fitness.

Derrick Henry loves working out—and not just because he's heading into his seventh NFL season. The gym is where he finds inspiration, passion and pride. On this episode, he and host Jaclyn Byrer geek out over their fitness favourites. The Tennessee Titans running back also shares how his family has motivated him through ups and downs, how he found success despite the people who said he wouldn't, and how all of us—whether we're dreaming of running a half-marathon or determined to try out a new fitness class—can push past doubt and achieve our goals.

"Any time you want to do something along your journey or along this life that you feel attracts you, go chase that and do it and do it with a relentless effort each and every day".
