Go-To Workout
SoulCycle and soccer keep me fit. My wife got me into SoulCycle and now we go together. She was really into it and I said, "Well I should try this. How hard could it really be?" It whooped my butt! I was terrible and I was sitting in the back. Now I'm that front-row guy. "Let's go!"

Good Sports
My passion was soccer growing up and I still play twice a week. I still play all my favorite sports. I can't play basketball on outdoor courts like I used to. I played on blacktop courts four days a week for 10 years. The hard courts eat your limbs, so my knees are kind of busted up. But I still wear basketball shorts and a tank-top everyday. If a game breaks out when I walk out of this building, I'll be ready to play!

Sun and Games
Besides soccer and basketball, I also play tennis and a ton of beach volleyball. During winter, I hit the slopes and go snowboarding. We have great weather out here in Los Angeles!

Power Up
I love bananas. I tend to eat pretty healthy for breakfast—I like watermelon and oatmeal. Lunch is typically a salad or sandwich (every other day). I still love sandwiches. I can't give them up.

Competitive Spirit
Sweat. I like to beat people at things. That's led to my downfall a few times and it can be a detriment to my family, because I love to compete and win. Nick [Newman] hasn't been a winner... so I hope this is his time!
