Health & Fitness

This month has been a struggle with injuries, but I was able to show some patience and let myself heal up. I am especially proud that I have been able to stay at 306-310 pounds during my bum knee phase. I have been re-energized by attending a weightlifting meet where my boy Jordan Larson deadlifted 1,000 pounds HOLY SHIZ.

I am amazed at the level of energy I continue to have to be able to workout, complete my daily job tasks, coaching sports, and still have the energy for family time.

Love my Job

Being a feature reporter affords me the luxury of meeting some incredible people, including celebrities. We met the first ever Tongan Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Veronica Pome’s, Fan-X was so much fun, and the stars were so gracious with their time; Aimee Garcia, Samantha Smith, Steve Grad, Austin St. John.


Lots of good benchmarks were recognized this month. The East Girls Basketball Team had our banquet and picked up our rings.

Super proud of my cousin Tua Kealoha and his cast winning some hardware from the Salt Lake Film Awards for their film “Dear Lord”.

Health Status

I have been on a personally-initiated challenge to get to 280 pounds in 160 days, which ends on my birthday in June. Also, Ihave been trying something different this month. I have been doing cardio only and not lifting any weights at all. My plan is to add weights back into the mix March 1.

Mental Relaxation Therapy

The stresses of life are everywhere, and everyone is affected at some level or another—whether it be from school, work or family. The way I deal with stress is through a few channels.

I record a weekly podcast with a local radio legend Patrick “DB” Essex. It is basically two dudes just shooting the breeze about popular hot topics.

Hard Work Pays Off

I have been spending a lot of time away from home serving as a coach for the East High Girls Basketball program. I have learned more daily lessons from the girls while working alongside them at practices and games.
