Age: 44

Occupation: Project manager by day. Comedian by night.

First FitWit class (date): October 2013

Tell us about any sports & fitness background:  I grew up a fat indoor kid. I hated the outdoors. Then again, I grew up in Florida and outside was like being on the surface of the sun.  After a short stint in the Army (they don’t really tolerate fat kids there), I got into running and then later amateur boxing and fought competitively until 2005.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting FitWit ?  Fitwit has gotten me the closest to being back in my boxing fighting shape that I hadn’t been in a decade.

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like FitWit that were totally unexpected?  After finishing a Fitwit workout, the rest of the day is butter.  If I can rock an hour workout, I can do anything else the rest of the day.

Why do you FitWit?  I do it to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.  We have to keep moving or else we die… like sharks.

Favorite workouts?  Eating over the kitchen sink while dressed in a robe.

Least favorite workouts?  Anything involving running.

Three words to describe you:  black male superhero

Any favorite FitWit moments?  Coming to my first workout in Grant Park in October 2013 and it was about 32 degrees outside. And then the next morning, I came back. I was surprised at myself.

Fitness Goals?  To be an old guy who “looks good for his age.”

Something cool we don’t know about you?   I’m a comedian and improvisor at Dad’s Garage Theater.  I host a storytelling show called Carapace every month at Manuel’s Tavern and we were a short-lived TV show on GPB in 2015.
