Motivated by Movement
Yancy lives and coaches others to live like every moment is a chance to move. "Our bodies are beautiful machines," Yancy says. "Your body is a mode of transportation. And we either respect it or disrespect it. If we respect it, it will take us on all of our journeys. It will allow us to say yes to vacations with our kids and grandkids when we're 67 years old. It allows us to go to work every day. It allows us to function on this beautiful planet of ours."
Growing Up Active
Yancy's commitment to health and fitness comes from a childhood of outdoor activity. He grew up in the country and spent a lot of time on his feet. The son of active parents, he was encouraged to participate in running and fitness activities from an early age.
Yancy attended a small school and played every sport they offered, including football, powerlifting, and track and field. He continued his athletic pursuits with a track scholarship to the University of North Texas.
