VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

So it was at the NBC Universal Summer 2016 TCA Press Tour and as you’ll see from this video, Matt Iseman, Akbar Gbajabiamila and Kristine Leahy couldn't be more enthusiastic. If you’re as obsessed with watching the show as millions of your fellow Americans, you’ll enjoy what the three experts have to say. Matt, 45, is also an M.D. who left the world of medicine behind to test his comedy chops. It obviously worked, as he’s performed around the world doing stand up. You’ve seen him in lots of commercials and heard his voice on others. With many other TV roles and appearances to his credit, he’s a popular host on ANW. He’s also been open about his diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, and characteristically brings his dose of good humor when asked about how he manages it so well. A Local Hero Too Akbar, who’s 37, also co-hosts NFL Fantasy Live for NFL Network and is known as a very relatable television personality. He’s known as a really good guy too, and was honored in May by the Los Angeles City Council for aiding a motorcycle officer who was the victim of a hit-and-run driver in June of last year. He played as a linebacker and defensive end in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders, San Diego Charters and Miami Dolphins. Akbar told Fansided that this year, pole vaulters or people with multiple disciplines are the ninjas to beat on the show. He also said that being around the ninjas makes him realize there’s “no excuse to let my body go.” It’s clear he has not. Female Sports Power Chicago-born Kristine has been a fan who grew up in a sports family and later set her sights on sports broadcasting. She’s held a series of great jobs that landed her, her gorgeous smile and grasp of the games on outlets such as Fox Boston, the CBS and Turner Sports families, and now as co-host on ANW. She’s also the first female to call a horse race in California. At 29, Kristine is also a contributor on the three-hour sports radio talk program, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, on FSI and the FOX Sports Radio Network. "American Ninja Warrior" returns August 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. And we can't wait! Now, how many push-ups can you do? If you think you can design an ANW obstacle that will go down in history, it's your chance to best "The Ultimate Cliffhanger." Enter the contest now here. Mind Your Body with Stephanie Stephens features celebrities and high achievers age 45+ who share their latest projects, healthy living secrets and more. When they're accompanied on the red carpet by younger stars we also love, the more the merrier.
