Fitness Interview with ABC13’s Steven Romo


Bitmoji King, Reporter, and Anchor for ABC13, Steven Romo is an interesting character! He works out 4-5 times a week and forces himself to do cardio- and he does all this and more to beat his biggest competitor, himself! Have you ever met someone who’s love for cheese inspires them? I think we can all relate! His gregarious personality comes through in our exclusive interview with him- keep reading to find out his workout regimen and why he pretends he’s getting chased by a bear:

HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Steven: I work out four to five times a week, lifting heavy objects and putting them back down. I also force myself to do cardio, which I hate. A lot. I usually have to pretend I’m being chased by a bear or something for motivation. I’ll spare everyone the breakdown of my workout sessions, but it’s mostly, lift heavy, split muscle groups daily, etc.

I also compete with myself. I want to beat Past Steven in weight level, rep numbers, number of people hitting on me, etc. That jerk is always trying to outdo me. 

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Steven: My mom died when she was 43. She had a lot of health issues, asthma, heart problems and more. Since her death, I sort of fear that 43 as an expiration date. I’d like to prevent that, if possible.

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

Steven: I have no direct evidence that it has benefited me in that area. It seems kind of unfair that being healthy would benefit my career. Health is its own blessing, right? I do think exercise can help teach discipline, which can translate to career goals.

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Steven: Fear of failure. Love of cheese. 

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

Steven: I am not an authority by any means, but if asked, I’d suggest cutting back on sugar and eating more protein. Drink more water. And move. Just make sure you’re moving every day. Also, accept/love yourself where you are, while also knowing you can strive to be better.
One of the most transformative fitness secrets I know is that you actually have the power to change yourself. It’s not all out of your control. Small changes add up.
Also, be dubious of anyone pretending they have all the answers or anyone that seems like they’re flawless. Online life and real-life rarely match up.

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

Steven: I try not to take myself too seriously.
