This week, The Real Show host and RY founder Amy Edwards sits down with 5-time Olympian and entrepreneur Amy Acuff for episode 2 in TRS season 3 series, "Inspiring and Influential Women," featuring 30-minute chats with amazing women who are dreaming it and doing it.

This episode features Amy Acuff, 40, a supremely inspiring woman who is poised to make it to her sixth Olympic games in the high-jump. Amy has also written an app to help her train, and started her own company around that (Winning Edge Apps). She's a mother of two, former model (with covers of Maxim and Playboy to her credit, too), and a trained acupuncturist. How does she do it all? Download or listen on iTunes for insight into her world of training and more, or grab these shortcuts if you're low on time!
