Recording artist Rick Ross has taken up CrossFit, and the 38-year-old rapper says training and an improved diet have benefitted him in several ways.
“Being in better shape, it affects everything,” Ross says. “Of course your health. Of course your psyche, your confidence.”
Ross recently released his seventh album, “Hood Billionaire,” and he’s up for a pair of Grammy Awards for his work on two other projects. Trainer Garret Fisher, fifth-place finisher at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, says Ross’ progress fires him up.
“Every day when we work out, (Ross) definitely pushes his limits and it shows,” Fisher says.
As a frequent traveler, Ross has limited opportunities to work out and appreciates CrossFit’s intensity and minimal time commitment.
“We come out here, we get it in, we feel good,” Ross says of his training, which takes place primarily in his backyard.
Watch as CrossFit Inc. journalist Sevan Matossian follows Ross, who says he uses CrossFit to start each day “like a boss.”
