Today, most people know Markie Williams as a champion bodybuilder, powerful businesswoman, and renowned podcast host. Markie is a five-time national qualifier for the National Physique Committee competition, and two-time National Bikini Pro Athlete. In short, she’s the epitome of strength.

 

But what most people don’t know is that just a few years ago, she was on the run from a dangerous domestic violence situation, with her life at stake.

 

This intimate conversation between Markie and Naveen includes:

  • The moment when Markie left an extremely abusive relationship and found herself at rock bottom—with no friends, family, or home
  • What initially drew Markie to the sport of bodybuilding, and the discipline it requires
  • How Markie talked herself through her slow climb out of rock bottom
  • The platform she’s now giving to fellow survivors of abuse to share their stories and be inspired to redefine their futures
  • The role that forgiveness plays in personal healing
