Fitness Interview with KSAT’s Deven Clarke


Deven Clarke is a news reporter for KSAT-TV in San Antonio Texas. He has a segment called “Fitness Fridays” centered around showcasing creative ways to stay active. When he’s not reporting and helping others stay fit and healthy, he’s probably working hard to achieve his own fitness goals in the gym. Keep reading our exclusive interview to see how his champion mindset keeps him focused and motivated in fitness and in life!

HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Deven: I try to look at the gym the same way I do work, regardless of what mood I’m in, it’s something that must be done. After work, I go home, take my pre-workout and then hit the gym.

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Deven: A history of heart disease and now cancer in my family, coupled with the fear of losing mobility is what keeps me motivated.

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

Deven: Unfortunately the TV news business exposes on-air staff to harsh critics. While I can’t say having a healthy lifestyle has landed me a job, the more health-conscious I become, the more I’m able to focus on the task at hand. It also doesn’t hurt to receive positive feedback.

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Deven: In general, I’m my biggest inspiration. Working out and achieving fitness goals is the only job you can’t pay someone else to do for you. You truly get out of it what you put in. It helps me stay disciplined and hold myself accountable.

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

Deven: My biggest advice to stay motivated: Think of the grim alternative.

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

Deven: Aside from health and fitness, I’m fascinated with forensic science. I binge watch true crime shows daily.
