Episode Title and Description

Episode Title: "Yes You Can"  the Team Hoyt Story

Tune in as Beth and Chris welcome Dick Hoyt of Team Hoyt who will share their story and journey in beating the odds with a healthier view of the human spirit. 

Meet Team Hoyt: Yes You Can!  In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not disabled.”This realization was just the beginning of what would become over 1,000 races completed, including marathons, duathlons and triathlons.

Meet Your Co-Hosts Beth and Chris

Meet Beth:

Hi there, my name is Beth. 

The 3 mottoes I live by in life are:  you get what you settle for  the whiter the bread the quicker you’re dead  loud music just sounds better.

I happen to love wellness, I love fitness and I love to write; I needed a space to talk about all things I love so I started this blog (sometimes there will be guest bloggers too). I can also recite Joaquin Phoenix’s famous lines in Gladiator, Walk the Line and Her; but no one will pay me for it. Yet. I went to Purdue University and earned two BS degrees; Kinesiology and Business Management. Go Boilers! I am also a certified trainer from the American College of Sports Medicine. My 1st professional job was a senior program director at a YMCA; during that time I also coached a high school cheer squad and dance team for 10 years. Then I landed a gig in Corporate America and grew roots. I LOVE, more than love, my job! I assure you, no one was more surprised about this than me. I’m all for leaning into life. And then, leaning in some more. I believe that what we all are ultimately looking for – that big purpose we’re flipping over stones to find – is health and true happiness.  

And the good news is: this is possible for everyone.

I believe laughing can make every day better and that kindness can change the world. I love being on the edge, pushing the boundaries, challenging my comfort zone – because the best things in life happen outside of it. And, a positive attitude; it’s the only kind to have. When I’m not working you will find me cycling, running, reading those books I never got around to in college or playing with my adorable dogs.

You can email me, but it may take me awhile to respond. It’s not you. It’s me. Unless you’re emailing me to ask me to sew on a button or tie a quilt; then it’s you. A girl has got to have her standards. And lastly, I once had a quirky stranger come up to me in a gym and tell me I was a Dingo in my past life. I was confused, rightfully so, but I am all about learning, leadership, courage and pouncing into action. Maybe she was onto something.


Meet Chris

I believe that the show A Healthier View with Beth and Chris is going to change the way people think about healthcare. I believe we are going to change the world one person at a time.  And after all, isn’t that what we’re all here to do?

Hi, I am Chris,

I’m a good mix of renegade thinker and straight forward get-it-done kind of guy. I am a father, co-worker, friend, sports fan, coffee enthusiast and a talk-radio fan.

Why I'm here?

Up2Me Radio presented me with a great opportunity to learn and grow in a fun and exciting environment. I get a lot of enjoyment out of making connections with people as we help to better people's lives. It’s so refreshing to be surrounded by such a great group of positive people who are excited to improve the well-being of others. 

I wanted to be part of something that is making a big change in the world! I'm all about learning new things and engaging in new experiences.

My goal is to improve the world in some way, and this is a good way! After all, health is the true wealth. Up2Me is great for a people-person like me, and I love straddling the line between thinking outside of the box and a more traditional way of thinking which feels amazing!

I want to make people, family and communities awesome in a way that’s real. I want to help people connect with themselves in a way that’s fueled by expertise, knowledge generosity and truth.  If I could teach you just one thing, it would be this:

A good cup of coffee can solve almost any problem.

And also this: Make your words count, in life and in business. So be impeccable with them. Make them count. That’s how you change the world.
