HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

After transforming my body and restoring my core through CrossFit a few years ago, I’ve moved on to only bodyweight exercises I can do in quick bursts, mostly at home or on the go. I’ve got three active kids to keep up with, so a lot of my daily activity comes from taking them to our local park to play baseball and wrestling on the living room floor. As for nutrition, I mostly live in a paleo/Whole 30 paradigm and primarily drink room temp water.

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

I want to be there for my wife, kids, and future grandkids decades from now, and I want to continue to make a positive impact on the amazing people in our community.

HFR: Do you believe that being fit and healthy has contributed to your successful career?

Yes. Most of us work odd hours and long days in both the TV and meteorology worlds, so it is an absolute must that you be a the top of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health game to do your job and serve others well.

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Jesus’s love and way of life guide all that I do.

HFR: What tips would you give your fans and our readers to staying healthy?

Your health is like a garden. You must cultivate it constantly to keep the weeds and pests away so you can continue to bear good fruit. It takes an investment of time and money to eat well, move well, and sleep well. And please, don’t underestimate the importance of good sleep. It is the foundation of our hormonal health that impacts all our body systems.

HFR: Share something that most people don’t know about you!

You’ll never see me post a picture of my washboard abs on Instagram. Only my wife needs to see that.
