Inspirational Keynote at Oprah's Vision Tour | Conquer Your Champion Mindset
Becoming the most successful female boxer in history didn’t happen overnight. I actually struggled with sharing my love for the sport at first.
My father, the great Muhammad Ali, didn’t even know I was boxing when I first started.
It wasn’t until I focused on my champion mindset, finding my confidence and strength to speak up, that I shared with him my passion for the sport.
An undefeated record and 4 world titles later, I realized that truly taking care of your physical and mental health is how you become a champion.
That champion mindset is what I apply to everything I do: being a mom, a wife, a fitness and wellness advocate, a television host, an author and Home Chef.
Without my champion mindset, juggling all these roles would be a lot more challenging.
Replenishing my health, my purpose and my mindset is how I learned to effectively multitask, manage my family life, and learn to face self-doubt by always pushing to be the best version of myself.
Building your legacy is about making holistic, intentional choices.
These choices are what help you become healthier, stronger, and fearless in your pursuit of feeling great.
How you feel about your body and your lifestyle starts with instilling discipline, clarifying your priorities, and implementing them into your routine every single day.
This journey is what helps you define your purpose and reach your goals. This is the sum of your legacy.
Putting my health and my values first is how I built my legacy.
By empowering myself to achieve greatness and learning to thrive in the face of adversity, I am able to focus on my passion: inspiring others to do the same.
It brings us together. Some of the best memories we have are over a shared meal.
Keeping the joy of food alive, while still making health-conscious decisions, starts with substituting harmful ingredients with foods and products good for the body, mind, and earth.
My love for cooking stems from my belief that championing every area of your life is fueled by your health.
No matter how much I love to indulge in sweets and comfort foods, there is always a way to make a healthy twist to your favorite dishes.
That’s the inspiration that helped me launch Food for Life, sharing recipes from my kitchen to yours.
By prioritizing self-care, self-love, passion and purpose, you can take control of your journey.
Conquer your schedule and step into your confident self. Access products that support you in your journey, eliminate toxins from your food, and inspire you to build your own unique legacy.
Ready to step into the best version of yourself?
Laila Ali is a world-class athlete, fitness & wellness advocate, TV host, home chef, founder of the Laila Ali Lifestyle Brand, and mother of two. The youngest daughter of late beloved global icon and humanitarian, Muhammad Ali, she is a two-time hall of famer and four-time undefeated boxing world champion, whose stellar record includes 24 wins (21 of which were “knockouts”) and zero losses. Laila is heralded as the most successful female in the history of women’s boxing. In 2012 when women’s boxing was included in the Olympics for the first time in history, Laila was the first woman in history to provide expert commentary for NBC Sports.
A cooking enthusiast, Laila previously appeared twice on Food Network’s celebrity edition of “Chopped” and emerged victorious as the champion. Continuing her passion in the cooking space, Laila hosted the FYI Network food truck competition series “Late Night Chef Fight.” Laila is a favorite guest on daytime shows such as Rachael Ray, The Chew, and she’s prepared her famous “oven baked fried chicken” on Steve Harvey’s hit daytime talk show.
Laila is the host of OWN Emmy award-winning series, “Home Made Simple” and the author of the best-selling cookbook, “Food for Life: Delicious & Healthy Comfort Food from My Table To Yours!” A major source of the inspiration for Laila writing this particular cookbook was her desire to show people how they could enjoy healthier and more nutritious versions of their favorite foods without having to compromise taste.
Ignited by her passion for an active lifestyle and wanting to share this with her millions of supporters, Laila created her own lifestyle blog LailaAliLifestyle.com where she regularly shared her personal workout regimens, recipes, DIY ideas, family tips, and so much more! Laila is also the three-time host of the televised ESPN Sports Humanitarian Awards. Laila recently launched YouPlenish, a nutrition supplements brand along with her very own line of organic seasonings, Laila Ali Spice Blends.
Laila has been an outspoken voice and regular contributor for the CBS Sports Network’s new all- female sports commentary program, “We Need to Talk,” the first of its kind in the history of sports broadcasting. For multiple seasons she hosted “Everyday Health” airing in national syndication on ABC, in addition to being the previous co-host of “American Gladiators” and former host of “All-In with Laila Ali,” which aired in weekend syndication on CBS.
Laila is a past President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization that is supported by many of the biggest athletes in the world. Through the WSF Laila promotes equality for women in the world of professional sports and is an advocate for programs that encourage young women to be confident, healthy and strong through sports. Laila was a major voice for the 40th anniversary of Title IX, which protects women’s rights to be included and treated equally in collegiate sports. Always eager to encourage others to live an active lifestyle, Laila Ali was the 2012 “Mombassador” for the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon, a competition she participated in and completed impressively in a little more than 3 hours. Laila has also appeared as a guest-star on popular fitness shows, “Biggest Loser” and “The Revolution.”
Laila tickled America’s funny bone with multiple hilarious roles as Kevin Hart’s boxing nemesis on the hit comedic series, “Real Husbands of Hollywood.” In 2014 she made her feature film-acting debut as the co-star of the action movie, “Falcon Rising,” opposite martial arts star, Michael Jai White. Never one to turn down a good challenge, she captured the hearts of millions and made it to the final round of the fourth season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” in 2007.
A recognizable and trusted figure whose name and likeness packs a powerful punch, Laila has been an endorser for major brands such Subway, Kohl’s, Dannon’s Activia and most recently, TJMAXX. Carefully building a successful branding and licensing empire, (a former owner and operator of a successful nail salon in southern California) Laila successfully launched a signature line of hair styling tools with Hot Tools, a brand subsidiary of hair care powerhouse, Helen of Troy.
With philanthropy at her core, Laila is a major supporter of charitable organizations such as Feeding America, Children’s Hospital and Peace 4 Kids. Laila is extremely proud of the work she has done on behalf of the American Dental Association to create oral health awareness for children, and she is equally proud to be an ongoing supporter and partner with the American Heart Association. This partnership supports Laila’s belief in being heart healthy and assists in the facilitation of much needed awareness about heart disease and strokes in communities most affected by these illnesses.
Laila is a sought-after inspirational speaker and author. She has keynoted speaking events at Harvard University, North Carolina A&T and has spoken to thousands of executives at leadership conferences for multi-billion-dollar corporate brands around the world. Her life’s story is chronicled in a dynamic book for young women entitled “Reach!” which has just been re-released to the public.
