What's the one ritual you practice/follow every day?
Evening chill time with the fam.
Do you have any health and/or fitness rituals?
I drink lots of fluids, eat mostly protein & produce, walk the dogs for an hour/day, train hard 3-4x/week, sleep 7-8 hours/night, & enjoy plenty of dietary flexibility.
What was a big setback in your life? What did you do to come back from it?
I had lots of injuries during my athletic career and 4 knee surgeries by the time I was 22. Helping other people overcome injuries and pain was a big part of me getting into fitness.
Do you have any meal-time rituals?
Protein and produce always serve as the foundation of every feeding. I use a lot of soups/stews, shakes/smoothies, and salads to pack in a lot of nutrition and food volume to keep me full and energized without breaking the bank or having to cook a lot. Ladder Plant Protein is a staple in my shakes.
What advice would you give to anyone that feels unable to reach the next level of success?
Stop, breathe and take a step back to reevaluate or re-define EXACTLY what “success” truly looks and feels like for YOU.
Do you use rituals to help you achieve your goals?
There’s a series of things I can do to turn me on creatively, fire me up physically, or to completely relax. After lots of trial and error I’ve finally figured out the steps for each process at the age of 37. So, be patient and pay close attention to what you need to do to get in the right mood and set the vibe.
Who has inspired or influenced any of your rituals?
I’ve always been a huge fan of LeBron & Arnold. They epitomize greatness in their respective fields but have also transcended into global icons who are more than just athletes or personalities.
What's your favorite quote of all time?
I honestly don’t have one. I hate quotes. Maybe when Mickey from Rocky said: “You’re gonna piss lightning and crap thunder. You’re gonna be a very dangerous individual.”
