Wilson Thomas is getting people pumped for the new year
Every January, Wilson Thomas of Olathe gets popular with people trying to keep their New Year's resolutions.
The 30-year-old personal trainer (www.barnonetraining.com) is a former receiver for the University of Nebraska football team and was a forward on the Nebraska basketball team. It's his job to get you in shape. It's our job to ask him a few questions about it.
DUMBEST THING YOU EVER SAW SOMEONE DO IN A GYM?
"I witnessed a young man trying to run backward on a treadmill. ...He didn't stay in a vertical position very long."
FUNNIEST TRAINING STORY?
"Flatulence during sit-ups. Enough said?"
BEST WORKOUT SONG?
Miley Cyrus, "Party in the USA."
WORST WORKOUT SONG?
Miley Cyrus, "Party in the USA." (It's irritating to have it stuck in your head all day, even if it is a catchy little tune.")
IF I COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT MONDAYS:
"I would not have to set an alarm."
