A hybrid of high-performance athlete and motivational coach, Toussaint is a titan within the fitness community and is widely respected for his authenticity and positivity. He thrives at the intersection of fitness, tech, music, sports, fashion, entertainment, and community. In 2020, he founded the Do Better Foundation whose mission is to promote and provide a broader access to wellness services and resources.


"As a master motivator, Alex Toussaint has inspired millions of people to reach new heights--not just on their Peloton bikes, but in every part of their lives. In this moving memoir, he reveals how he learned to face pain and keep on climbing. It should come with a warning: this book may fire you up to do better and feel better."
-Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential and Think Again, and host of the podcast Re: Thinking

-Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

-Reshma Saujani, New York Times bestselling author of Brave, Not Perfect: How Celebrating Imperfection Helps You Live Your Best, Most Joyful Life

"Activate Your Greatness boasts key leadership lessons for so many of us struggling to balance the personal and professional, the constant code-switching among family and work and everyone in between, and to somehow establish boundaries within."
