Interview With Ryan Romeo
Q. Can you give us some background about yourself?
A. I'm a 29 year old male from New Jersey. I work full-time for a Marketing Company and I also own several small Internet-based businesses. I would say my two biggest passions in life (besides family of course!), are health and internet marketing.
Q. What got you started in fitness?
I started taking an active interest in health and fitness when I was 13 years old. I was really into vitamins and ab exercises and it just grew from there.
Q. What is it about fitness that you love so much?
A. I find it fascinating that you can take certain vitamins and improve yourself. And I also like the way it feels to be fit and strong. Life is better overall when you're in shape and feel good about yourself.
Q. What adversities have you had to overcome?
A. My biggest adversity has been my perfectionism. For a solid 3 years I was VERY tough on myself and I think it negatively affected the way I looked at health and fitness. Over time I learned to relax about my approach to getting in shape, including nutrition, and it was the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Q. What are your favorite and least favorite exercises?
A. My favorite exercises are the push up and pull up. They're natural bodyweight exercises that do a fantastic job at building strength and definition. My least favorite exerise is (surprise!) cardio. I know it's important, but I just don't find it fun.
Q. What are your tips for the beginner, intermediate and advanced?
A. My tip is the same for all 3 levels. There are a TON of different forms of exercise you can do. Find the one that appeals to you the most because that will help you stick with it for the long run...which is important. I'm also a huge fan of omega-3 fatty acids and I recommend anyone of any level to try adding it to their diet.
Q. Where do you stand on the use of steroids and supplements?
A. I don't agree with steroids, but I'm a fan of certain supplements. I think a multivitamin is must...I also think large amounts of fish oil is very effective for fat loss (among many other things). And if you're serious about bodybuilding, creatine, glutamine and nitric oxide are probably worth the money.
Q. What are your future goals?
My goal for the future is to continue to improve my fitness level and help others do the same. The obesity rate in the uSA is scary and I think every little bit of help counts.
Q. What is the toughest part about fitness for you?
A. The toughest part of fitness for me is trying to keep it fresh and new. If you do the same thing over and over again, it can be tedious. That's why I said before to stick with the workouts you enjoy (or at least don't mind doing). And then branch off from there, try different things, etc.
Q. Is there anything else you would like to say?
A. Fitness is important. Do whatever it takes to motivate yourself to include it in your life. You confidence, energy levels, and strength will improve. Make a commitment to yourself that you will work out for one month...reason being, momentum will take over and you'll be more likely to stick with it (especially when you start seeing results!).
Q. Tell us about the average joe fitness program?
A. It's the perfect fitness program for someone that's looking for a workout plan that is simple and easy to follow. It takes the 4 most common bodyweight exercises and teaches you a way to do them that cuts down on the rest time and increases the effectiveness of the exercises...and it also reduces the tediousness of getting (and keeping) in shape. You definitley won't be bored doing the Average Joe Fitness program...and I'm always tweaking it if I find a
better way to do things. Gotta keep things fresh!
