Lani Woods is a mom of two, athlete, adventurer, and healthcare professional. She is also the survivor of an impoverished childhood, depression, and a toxic and abusive relationship. Through it all she recognized in herself an innate resiliency and has turned to physical fitness individually and as a bonding tool for her family. During her recent recovery from a complex leg injury, Lani launched the Unrelenting Humans podcast to celebrate and empower other athletes by sharing their stories of fortitude in sport and life. She is also establishing a non-profit for athletes in underserved communities. Growing up in poverty, without resources and activities to promote physical and mental health, has inspired Lani’s work to provide access to sports as a means to help more humans reach their full life potential.
