Getting Yoked With President Roth


For me, there are only two reasons to go to the gym: so people see me working out and so later I can brag that I worked out. Today, as I was checking out my biceps in the mirror, I saw someone familiar working away on the stair master. No, it wasn’t a past hookup that I was awkwardly, yet cordially, avoiding. It was President Roth! I had to find out his secret. What is the elusive Michael Roth’s workout like?

I caught Roth as he was getting off the stair master. He prefers the stair master or the elliptical because he has a chance to read. Along with that, he explained, “the handles are convenient so I don’t fall off.” He usually does cardio for at least 30 minutes before hitting the floor for some weight training. As seen in the picture above, Roth prefers to stick to the machines. All throughout, he listens to Richie Havens, the Laura Nyro Pandora station or Wilco. Best of all, he uses his cardio time to read Wesleying on his iPad. While we appreciate the loyalty, if you’re able to read, you’re able to workout harder… No excuses!

Well there you have it: 30 min cardio and some weight training on the machines. Next time you’re at Freeman and looking for a spotter, President Roth is your man.
