Recap of what was planned for the interview:
Intro for Leticia: Leticia Madrigal MA is an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist, works independently at Madrigal Consulting, and Founder of the ÁmateAhora/LoveUNow Movement. She is board and associate board to three non profits.
Leticia tell us more about yourself and the ÁmateAhora/LoveUNow Movement.
Thanks Mateo! I’m Leticia Madrigal, 1st generation born in Chicago from Nuevo Leon Mexico.
And as Founder of the ÁmateAhora | LoveUNow Movement. We are a stand for creating the experience of power and peace of mind by coming to terms with our health and mobilizing communities to be proactive worldwide.
Tell us what inspired you to create the ÁmateAhora | LoveUNow Movement.
I’ll answer that two fold.
Let me ask your listeners. Do you have family, friends, neighbors who have died from a preventable condition? Many of do.
Did you know? About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. While almost everyone is affected by heart disease directly or indirectly, Afro-americans and Latinos face even higher risks of cardiovascular diseases because of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. Additionally, heart disease is the #1 killer of Hispanic women . Unlike many illnesses, heart disease is preventable!
We are at an alarming rate of Obesity and we are calling to action our community to embrace where we are and take action today for a path to optimal health. Because the quality of our health is being compromised.
Can you share with us how ÁmateAhora | LoveUNow connects with you on a personal level?
Sure thanks for asking. I’ll share with you my personal testimony in the power we have to transform our lives.
My father withheld his symptoms from everyone including his doctor. His silence led to his untimely death in 2012. He fell prey to Heat Stroke, he had a heart condition, he was overweight. It was preventable. I challenge you to break the silence in our Men’s Health and Empower Families to Live Healthy!
On the other hand, my mother’s doctor told her she had 6 months to live she chose to powerfully manage her diabetes and now, years later, she’s loving life.
What is ÁmateAhora | LoveUNow upto?

The series includes my testimony on the power we have NOW to choose optimal health, an invitation to our Annual ÁmateAhora Health Expo, monthly sweat sessions and screening, and races for a cause. Experts will be leading Exhilarating Exercises and Blissful Breathing techniques. If pilot is successful we will be invited to participate in multiple schools and park districts.
