HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Nate: Nutrition routine is fairly simple. I limit the number of full course meals to 1, maybe 2 a day…if I am really lucky. Weekends, I will try to eat 2 or 3 small meals.

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Nate: I am motivated by my Wife and Daughter. My Wife is a former athlete who believes in a healthy lifestyle and so is my Daughter, a former athlete who also believes in a healthy lifestyle. In addition, I’d like to live and work as long as I can to enjoy the full potential of our blessings.

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

Nate: I do believe that living healthy has contributed in a big way to the platform I am so blessed to enjoy. While growing up, there were older individuals who would tell me often that being healthy is the key to great opportunities. They were and are right.

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Nate: I am inspired by seeing people achieve what makes them happy and successful in their lives. There is always a story to be told and lots to be learned from that story. But not all stories are stories of success. Some are of failure. However, the person who is able to endure, recover and succeed in spite of their failure, now that is a great story of inspiration and hope.

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

Nate: Tips…Wow! People are different…body types, stress levels, aggression levels, and diets. Too much of any one specific food item, etc., is probably not going to work out too well if trying to get reasonably healthy. First, it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. So take small steps and do the little things right such as planning the amount of time for workout routines. Such as meal preparation. Such as a good and balanced sleep schedule…water intake. Your mental health is critical to your physical health; Think positive. Finally, balance is important. It’s okay to celebrate the moment with yourself and others…it’s really ok to have fun.

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

Nate: Not sure what to tell you for number 6…probably not something I’d want folks to know…
