Who is on the 21 Day Challenge? We spend 5 minutes with our participants to find out more about who they are and what they do.

Describe your typical day:

Hosting a news talk radio program on 630 CHED, I've got to stay as "in the know" as possible, so I'm a "late to bed, early to rise"-type person. I'm typically awake with enough time to allow me a couple cups of coffee, a scan through the day's headlines, and a more detailed review of the guest segments we have planned for The Ryan Jespersen Show. I'm into the studio from 9-noon, then every day looks different depending on events I may be hosting that afternoon or evening, and whether or not the Oilers play at home (I serve as their in-game host at Rexall Place). The one thing every day has in common? Fast-moving, with nary a dull moment! 

How would you describe your current fitness regime?

I'm on and off the wagon all the time. I fluctuate between 185-215 lbs, and I can tell you exactly why. The truth of the matter is, I haven't placed much of a priority on fitness as of late. I let work and other obligations get in the way, forgetting the energy boost I always experience after working out. I'm active through the year, playing hockey, golf, snowboarding, etc...but I recognize a deficiency in the time I spend specifically improving my health and well-being.

What is one meal/food that you can't live without?

I skip breakfast and lunch on the regular (I know, I know...), but you'll never see me ignore a nice, big dinner. I'm a big fan of carbs and comfort food. I mean, who isn't?

What are the biggest challenges you experience in trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

I am quite busy with work and am also a board member for two charities.  This takes up a lot of time that could be used cooking healthy meals and/or working out. 

What fitness goals are you hoping to achieve by being on the 21 Day Challenge?

Sculpted pecs, eight-pack abs and a chiseled chin. We can achieve that in three weeks...right?.
