Guys, I'm sorry it has been so long in between posts! I promise, it's not that I am cool or anything. Just ridiculous busy. Several jobs, several kids, several workouts... Hahah! So, this is just a quick update on several fronts, with a LOT of stuff to come this summer!
ACTING: Did a very goofy Hyundai commercial. Then did a very goofy country music video for a young up-and-coming female singer who just might make it big- was fun being a cowboy for a day. This week I'm filming another music video for a slightly better known artist. I'm the male lead opposite her- the director is fantastic, her music sounds good. Too bad they hired me, hope I don't blow it! For some reason, I have been getting a lot of calls lately, lots of interest, some momentum... Still the dream job.
FITNESS: I have partnered with GNC recently to create a summer video series of workouts you can do anywhere. I'll also be using a lot of their products and try to let you know what I love and what I don't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdMBjcdLTdA
I'm still working with Men's Fitness to try to bring original videos for them on an (almost) weekly basis: http://www.mensfitness.com/training/pro-tips/30-min-explosive-metabolic-circuit-video
I've been asked to serve as an "expert" (I know...ha!) for a new site called www.weighttraining.com I'll be doing short videos for them as well, quick tips- basically, if a moron like me can do it, anyone can!
A couple brands that I'm very excited to be a part of, www.inov-8.com THE best training shoes I've tried, and a new clothing company, HYLETE- which promises to have the best training gear on the planet.
There are a couple other projects going on as well, more on those later!
Finally, I've been talked into competing again at the Police and Fire Games in the Toughest Competitor Alive event. My best buddy Chuck and I are taking a laid-back approach this time since we got a late start. But it's an excuse to spend a couple of days in San Diego, right? So, here is the skeleton of my training plan, and what my basic intake looks like these days:
Lastly, I did a photo shoot recently with an incredible photographer named Eric Cassee, www.ericcassee.com I posted a handful of shots on my Facebook page.
As always, please connect with me anytime- if I can ever do anything for you, I will always TRY to help!
