Olympic Gold medalist Sanya Richards is known for her athletic abilities but soon she will be known for much more.
The four time gold medalist will be hitting your televisions this summer starring in her own reality show called “Glam and Gold” which chronicles her life as an athlete, a business woman, and a wife to NFL player Richard Ross.
The hour long show first started off as a pilot last year, showcasing Sanya preparing for the Olympics in London. Back from London with lots of success under her belt, Mrs Richards- Ross is ready to take on the world.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Ross made their debut on WE tv showcasing their nupitials in 2010 when they got married on the channels show “Platinum Weddings“. The two were college sweat hearts who found a common love in each and in sports.
Even though Sanya stays busy with business ventures like having a hair salon, pursuing a career in entertainment, and being a wife to a Super Bowl Champion, she still finds time to train hard and workout.
Sanya typically works out five times a week on the track, incorporating weight training to her regimen as well. She admits that her secret to being a great athlete is pilates;
“My training regimens consist of my workouts on the track, weight lifting, and what people might not think I do, and what I really enjoy doing is pilates. Besides being on the track five days a week and lifting weights which I believe it helps me build my strength my stamina (but) I think pilates has been a great secret to my success. It has helped me to prevent most injuries by increasing my core strength and flexibility. I think pilates is a small thing that I do but a phenomenal thing that adds into the picture that makes me a great athlete”
