Ricky (Rozay) Ross is looking good these days. The overweight, easy to love, rapper has managed to lose over 100lbs. with the help of Reebok’s CrossFit training program, and better eating habits. What is CrossFit you ask? According to CrossFit.com, “CrossFit is many things…” In a nutshell, it’s a strength building and educational program that helps individuals meet their fitness needs through a variety of movements, nutritional goals, and an overall understanding of what it means to be healthy and fit.
When asked about a month ago how much weight he’s actually lost, Ross explained his main focus was not on how much weight he was losing, but rather on being in a better (more healthy) position.
You know, I ain’t really keeping up on, you know, the amount, you know, of weight. I just, I just wanted to get in some better shape, you know what I’m saying,? Put myself in a better position. So I just, I still eat the way I want to eat, I just go to the gym. I do this s**t called, uh, CrossFit. I call it ‘RossFit.’ It’s called ‘RossFit’ now. What it is, is earlier this summer, Reebok had introduced to a trainer, and what he turned me on to was a training…Let’s say, for instance, if you got on a treadmill and you did that s**t for 30 minutes, yeah, you’re burning calories but you could be doing something that’s burning calories and building muscle at the same time. So it’s like, you’re working out a shorter time. I could go out and do some s**t for 20 minutes and you could be looking like this [flexes in camera], you heard me?
You know, the most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money…But now, they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit, you know, tasted like. I eat pears now and s**t like that.
