Speaking the Truth x NY Giants Super Bowl Champion, David Tyree
June 30, 2022
Hosted by Jodi Harrison Bauer
This week I'm joined by David Tyree. By nature, David Tyree is a Champion. He is an optimist and a person of great integrity. His character heralds the life of a person who refuses to settle for second best and helps others overcome to get great done. His ability to identify with the many challenges life presents fuels the compassion he has for people in every walk of life and drives the influence that he has on those around him. The story of David Tyree is that of Truth, Transparency and Transformation. His servant leadership and high level of performance did not stop on the field. David successfully spent eight years in Player Development in the front office for the New York Giants as Director of Player Engagement. Recognizing the cost of poor decisions and the urgency to change, he used this position to guide players in the direction of Leadership Development, Total Wellness and Career Transition. David continues to be passionate about leaving a footprint in this generation and those to come that will lead to transformation and good success. More recently, David and his wife, Leilah, became entrepreneurs by opening the first Clean Juice franchise in the state of New Jersey. In light of David’s success as an athlete and professional, he has found that his greatest privilege is being a husband to his excellent wife and father to his seven children. David, a New Jersey native and proud Syracuse University Alum, began his NFL career in 2003 with the New York Giants. In 2006, David was unanimously chosen as a Pro Bowl Special Teams player. In 2008, David was crowned a Super Bowl XLII champion and etched his name in NFL history by making what many would call the greatest catch in Super Bowl history, the Helmet Catch.

Jodi Harrison Bauer is a two-time World Bikini Champion, founder and owner of JodiFit boutique fitness studio, host of Fearlessly Authentic podcast and the oldest woman to ever compete for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, making global headlines and the Top 60 finalists in 2019.
Growing up, Jodi was a people pleaser and scared of everything. She graduated with a BA from Simmons College in 1983. Jodi’s life changed forever when, at 42 years old, she built the courage to take control of her own happiness. Since then, Jodi has worked relentlessly to better herself, build her business, nurture her relationships and create the life she knew she always deserved, one with passion and purpose.
In doing so, she hasn’t followed the rules or fit in the box society wanted to put her in. She started competing in fitness shows when she was “too old,” opened a business at 50 and got re-married eight years later. She competed against women more than half her age for a spot in Sports Illustrated Swim to prove age and beauty are not directly correlated.
Today she defines herself as an ageless warrior and an advocate against ageism. In her studio, on her podcast and across her social channels, Jodi focuses on empowering women.
Jodi is the proud mother of two grown daughters and a rescue pup. Outside of JodiFit, you can find her on the beach or dancing like no one’s watching. She lives by the words “Never let fear stop you from being YOU."
