Diving head first into a lifestyle plagued with dire consequences, being middle aged, 50 lbs overweight, depressed and hanging onto a sliver of the man he was truly meant to be, Rich Roll realized he needed to break free from the disaster that was awaiting him. He altered his future trajectory by running down a path that was extreme and what many people would think is impossible. Rich began his new journey by overhauling his diet and becoming vegan and completing the 320 mile double-Ironman distance triathlon in Hawaii. He kept this momentum going and went on to write an Amazon #1 best-selling memoir, achieved a status of one of the "25 Fittest Men in the World" by Men's Fitness, and continues to inspire people worldwide as the host of The Rich Roll Podcast. Rich Roll is living proof that transformational growth is possible.
Faced with adversity every step of the way, Rich dug deep to become the most authentic version of himself. He realized from darkness comes light and he just needed to keep going, and that ultimately the only way out is through.
