HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Kiotti Brown: My daily exercise regimen changes from time to time. Dose and Taj #Khango have been training me the past 4-5 years. HIIT training and cardio 4-5 days a week. I’ve also picked back up boxing with David Donis. I love boxing! Nutritionally, I don’t eat beef or pork. I drink a fresh-pressed juice every day. (Apple, Carrot, Spinach)

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Kiotti Brown: My kids motivate me more than anything to stay healthy. Successful habits are something I want them to learn early in life. And they are sponges. I believe what we eat and how we treat our bodies, has a direct correlation to health & wealth.

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

Kiotti Brown: I’m a successful radio personality here in Houston. My name is “Hardbody Kiotti”. When people meet me, they expect to see someone who’s in shape. I think healthy habits have been a blessing to me. I’ve built so many relationships based on fitness and health. From trainers, to brands I do business with. It’s a lifestyle. And people respect that. Anyone who puts themselves through pain & sweat to build their own brand has the tools and discipline to help you build yours.

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Kiotti Brown: My city inspires me. I love interacting with the youth here in Houston. They are “BS” proof. When you’re real, they can feel it. I love the accountability and vice versa. I’m inspired by “the process” as well. I’m a believer that if you do the work, it will happen. I’m living proof. It’s inspiring to see people who do the work, see the rewards. And of course, my circle inspires me. Keep some creative people around who question everything. Because the world will have questions. And you’d better have an answer.

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

Kiotti Brown: Health is a personal journey. Everyone’s definition of health is different. Find what works for you. Maybe that’s not a die-hard diet. Maybe it’s not eating fried foods except on the weekends. Or maybe leaving candy out of the diet. I’m not anybody’s trainer. 😂 Small changes over time will equal success in the long run.

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

Kiotti Brown: I love music! Before radio, I was a full-time recording artist. Last year I released “H Town For Real” that did really well for me. I’m currently working on new music. And every morning you can catch me in regular dad mode. “The Bus Driver With The Beard” is my daily conversations with my kids on the way to school. Check me out! @hardbodykiotti on social media.
