"Include everyone"—this is something Amanda Kloots prioritizes in her work, whether it's with her co-workers or with us, her audience. She makes us all, even the ones who don't know her, feel included and part of the conversation. From getting us up and going through her fitness videos to sharing her personal journey, the talk show host is warm, engaging, thoughtful and, most of all, relatable. In her book, Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero, Amanda opens up about the most difficult part of her life, but even then she does so in the voice of a trusted, longtime friend. Here, the mother and New York Times best-selling author shares even more as we step into a day in the life and learn everything from her favorite thing to make (her answer is so fitting) and personal talisman to why gratitude will always help with life's challenges.
