HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?
KG Smooth: My daily exercise and nutrition routine consist of either lifting or swimming. Nutrition-wise, I try to eat a lot of greens – spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, etc. Of course, I also eat protein, which will be chicken, fish, or beef depending on what I work on that day and I drink nothing but water.
HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?
KG Smooth: What keeps me motivated is the feeling that I get after a great workout. I love the feeling and energy boost that comes with working out. Makes me feel like a superhero! But most importantly, health is wealth and I want to be rich in that department.
HFR: Do you believe that being fit and healthy has contributed to your successful career?
KG Smooth: I do believe that being fit and healthy has contributed to my career because it shows people that even though I have a job where I may sit down a lot, I am up and active and determined to stay fit and sexy because it comes along with the image of being The Quiet Storm host. You can’t have a host of a show like that and them not be sexy or have sex appeal.
HFR: What inspires you, in general?
KG Smooth: What inspires me, in general, is everyday people. Instagram plays a role in that because when I don’t feel like working out when I know I need to, I’ll get on the explorer page see all of the fit and cut bodies and that will motivate me to go work out. Also, my nieces and nephews and my listeners.
HFR: What tips would you give your fans and our readers on staying healthy?
KG Smooth: Just keep moving. Be it a walk in the park, bicycling around your neighborhood, or going for a swim at your complex or the park. Just keep moving, do it at your own pace, and trust the process.
HFR: Share something that most people don’t know about you!
KG Smooth: Something that most people don’t know about me is that I have heart disease. I had open-heart surgery when I was five years old. I could not play as hard outside like the other kids, I wasn’t allowed to play sports, but I’m here. I wasn’t supposed to be here, but I am! Just as fit and healthy as someone who didn’t have heart surgery or heart disease.
