I can't wait for our listeners to hear some of that passion." stated FitBody Radio co-host Jami DeBernard, a professional athlete herself. "Newell is the kind of athlete that is motivational and inspirational to watch, not because of his physical challenges, but because of his attitude, pure and simple" added FitBody Radio co-host Brian Jagger.
