Fitness Files: Jesse Kovacs

Jesse Kovacs melted the hearts and caught the attention of women when he first appeared on The Bachelorette (Jillian's season).  Balancing his busy TV filming schedule while making wine with his brother for Kovacs Brothers Wine and running a hot downtown lounge Liquid Lounge Downtown in San Diego, CA. I had to ask how does he maintain a fit lifestyle?  Continue reading Jesse's Fitness Files interview to learn more about how he has made being fit and healthy apart of his life. 

NMF: Has fitness always been a major part of your life or was there a catalyst/point in your life when you made it more of a focus and priority?

JK: I have always been involved in sports and can't remember a time when I wasn't active. There was a time, however, after I retired from baseball that I had to make the choice to continue to workout. Weight training was always a part of the profession but now I had to stay fit to feel good rather than to be good.

NMF: What are a few of your go-to healthy snacks/drinks that help keep you on the straight and narrow?

JK: One of the reasons why I workout is so I can eat and drink whatever I want. I love food and wine. I drink an enormous amount of water everyday. 

NMF: How do you change your body?  What are your fitness favorites?

JK: As a former athlete, I feel like being active is ingrained in body. I can't sleep at night if I don't feel like I expended enough energy throughout the day. So basically I'm motivated by sleep.

I've been roughly the same size and weight for the last decade. So I haven't had to change my body, I just have to stay positive as I get older because certain things are starting to hurt. I love to play basketball before I workout.  It's a great way to warm up without getting bored on a treadmill or stair master.
