- Gabby ReeceXPT Co-Founder
Gabrielle Reece is not only a volleyball legend, but an inspirational leader, New York Times bestselling author, wife, and mother. The former professional beach volleyball player and Nike’s first female spokeswoman is the definition of athleticism. Though California born, Gabby was raised on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands and didn’t take up volleyball until she moved to Florida when she was in the eleventh grade. Gabby won an athletic scholarship to Florida State University where she played two seasons before accepting offers from the modeling world.
Despite the allure of modeling, Gabby returned to the FSU campus and set two school volleyball records that still stand today. Competing at the highest levels of women’s volleyball throughout most of her life, including competing professionally when five months pregnant, Gabby has been a consistent inspiration to women to stay in shape. Gabby is also Nike’s first female athlete to design a shoe, and their first-ever female cross-training spokesperson. Together, Laird Hamilton and Gabrielle Reece created Extreme Performance Training (XPT) based off of their daily lifestyle regimens.
