Macho man or Crossfit Jesus – I guess the beard lends itself to nicknames!
I like to keep it simple. I like to follow an intermittent fasting protocol which typically means waiting to eat until after a morning workout. I fill my day with good quality food – thanks to Fia’s Fresh Meals – but always save some room for treats during my evening chill session. A few Double Stuff Oreos or a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch!
What does a typical day of food look like?
Breakfast (Post-workout meal) – Oatmeal and egg whites & fruit or whatever Roz makes me
Lunch – Catered meal from Fia’s Fresh Meals
Dinner – Chicken and veggies, sweet potato, rice (whatever Roz makes)
Snacks / Fun food – Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookie, Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Kraft Mac n Cheese
Thing to do on a free Saturday:
Sleep in; hit a good workout and spend quality time with my beautiful wife and crazy dogs!
Favorite movie/TV show:
Seinfeld! Jerry Seinfeld is a comedic genius & master of observations. I just love the perspectives he offers and have incredible respect for him as a stand-up comedian.
Tuesdays with Morrie, by Mitch Albom.
“What we manifest lies before us, we are the creators of our own destiny.” ~ Garth Stein
Favorite CrossFit wod/movement:
Burpees or double unders.
Pee 5 times & make a lot of noise. I feed off the energy of others so I love to get the whole gym fired up!
Dave Matthews and 90s Hip Hop. Roz just took me to see The Dave Matthews Band for my 40th Birthday! I was so pumped!!!
Must-haves for travel:
My noise-canceling Bose headphones are essential! I credit them with my ability to fall asleep anywhere.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A doctor. My mom is still waiting for me to get a “real job.”
What do you want to be now?
I love being a coach and an entrepreneur, but if there was anything else I’d love to try my hand at in this life then I’d want to be an actor or comedian.
Never having a “real job”, finding my own path and being able to support myself…and now Roz too.
