Hoda Kotb's #startTODAY plan: More energy and organization

This year, #startTODAY will follow Hoda Kotb, Jenna Bush Hager and Craig Melvin as they start their own personal health journey with the goal of living to 100. Each anchor has been paired up with a team of coaches to help them along the way.

Hoda Kotb will team up with rockstar cycling instructor Sue Molnar, mindfulness expert Angie Johnsey and nutritionist and TODAY contributor Joy Bauer to set goals for the new year and work towards achieving them all month long.
