Keep reading our exclusive interview to find out what this adventure man does on a daily basis to stay healthy:

HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Keith: I am a CrossFitter & workout 3-5 times a week. CrossFit is a combination of high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, & gymnastics

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Keith: I’ve been drawn to athletics & physical fitness most of my life.  What motivates me now is being healthy for my family & my future grandkids

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

Keith: I definitely believe being physically fit gives you a level of confidence in most every aspect of your life

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Keith: The promises of Jesus Christ & also people who strive to make a positive difference for the right reasons, i.e., doing what is right minus ego & self-promotion

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

Keith: Doing something is better than doing nothing! You don’t have to run marathons or do CrossFit to be healthy.  Walk around the block, do pushups, or jumping jacks a few times a week.  Just be better than the version of you that would rather sit on the couch & eat potato chips all day.  And don’t forget that a bad diet can ruin a good workout regimen

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

Keith: For years I have had a phobia of falling.  Not a fear or phobia of heights but a bona fide phobia of falling; they’re related but not the same.  I’ve tried to tackle that phobia head-on by summitting Mt. Rainer a couple of times & learning to do handstand walks
