EP4 - Growing Through P.A.I.N. w/ Coach Anthony Simon

by Leo Gallegos April 17, 2020


Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights" and is inspired by the heroic life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together.

Coach Anthony Simon is the #1 Best-selling Author of “Life’s Greatest Gift: P.A.I.N.”, Anthony Simon, is a charismatic motivational speaker, author, life coach, personal trainer, former D1 student-athlete and founder of, Ant Inspires You. He graduated from UC Davis with degrees in Biopsychology (B.S.) and Communications (B.A.). Speaking and empowering over 10,000 people around the United States, Ant is deeply passionate for the personal development of students, youth and young adults in mind, body and spirit. Ant lives by his mantra, “Strive. Thrive. Be Alive" and teaches and encourages others to do the same.

In our conversation we touch on various interesting topics, some of which are Ant's powerful story of battling through depression and spiritual warfare as a youth, working towards his dream of becoming a D1 College basketball player, and his vision of how struggle and adversity can be channeled as a redeeming force for Good. Ant's energy, charisma and joyfulness is truly unique and contagious. I know you are going to enjoy this one! Be sure to keep an eye out for Ant's newest book coming out soon!
