Nancy is joined with Thomas Andrews today. Thomas is the owner of T3 PowerReady, a group fitness program based right on the beach in Marina Del Rey, California. From overcoming addiction and homelessness to living in Singapore and Bali, Thomas’s story is one that I have the pleasure of sharing. He shares what it’s like to be black in Atlanta and abroad in Bali and Singapore, confronting racism, the mindset shifts he’s had to implement to change his life, and how he founded his company and patented its workout equipment to share with all that Earth is Our Gym.
