What does your day typically look like?
In the AM I’m woken by Archer the human alarm clock, then the ideal day consists of trying to kick some serious ass at real estating, then head to MCF for a serious ass-kicking at noon, then more real estating in the afternoon and sometimes into the evening, with some family time mixed in there.
What’s your favourite way to spend a Friday night?
Friday nights I always try and spend with my wife. It’s a nice way to end a busy week and an opportunity for us to catch up! #fridaynightwifenight
If you had an extra week of vacation this year and unlimited funding, what would you do?
Either take my family somewhere into the mountains in Western Europe, or spend the week recording an album with my band in a cool studio.
When did you start working out, and why?
Why Menesetung CrossFit?
I’ve never gotten bored. It’s ALWAYS a challenge; it’s never gotten easy. It makes me feel very alive (even though sometimes it feels like I’m dying during the workout). It’s given me more self-confidence, a better body image, more functional strength, and it’s an incredible and inspiring community of people who are very supportive of each other. It has become part of my everyday life and I can’t ever imagine myself not doing it.
Tell us one thing most people don’t know about you.
Although I’m an incredibly social person, and generally love being around people, I find an immense amount of solace in sitting on a tractor cutting grass listening to music and not talking to anyone.
And for our own selfish interest… any good recommendations for books or movies?
Watch the 1990’s movie Fearless with Jeff Bridges – and try NOT feel overwhelmed with emotion when at the end of the movie there is a long 10 min scene that uses Henryk Gorecki’s third symphony – my favourite piece of classical music.
