Although she is AGELESS, international fitness super star, Leslee Bender, has had her share of sports injuries and recently had knee replacement surgery.

Meet the creator of the Bender Ball, hear her story of recovery, and learn how you can pack your blender with all of the right ingredients to put yourself back on your feet, too!
