I recently had an opportunity to speak with one of Beachbody’s handsome and prolific super trainers Joel Freeman.
By: Joshua Conner
Joel Freeman is a Beachbody super trainer, creator of Liift 4, co-creator of Core de Force, Big Brother Mentor for Big Brothers and Big Sisters LA, and Brand Ambassador for Dude Wipes based in Los Angeles, California. Freeman inspires me personally and professionally. Professionally, I am inspired by Freeman’s work ethic. Personally, I am inspired by his physique, how he gives back and how he is the brand ambassador for one of my favorite products Dude Wipes.
What would be the title of Freeman’s life story and who would play him in a movie?
“The title of my life story would be, a real fitness guy, and who would play me, gosh, let’s just say Chris Evans, because he’s Captain America,” said Freeman.
What was Freeman’s most memorable year?
“My most memorable year, man, to put it into one year is challenging. I think the most memorable year, would be the year, that we launched Core De Force and I got married all in the same year,” said Freeman.
If Freeman’s mantra was a hashtag, it would be, #reallifefitness.
“It’s that because everything that I do, and I talk about in the realm of Beachbody and everything that I work on, is always reality-based. It’s based around real life, and that’s the focus and flow, that I want people to focus on as well,” said Freeman.
What are Freeman’s underwear preferences?
“Let’s see boxer briefs, except boxers to sleep in. You know, I’m not tied to a brand. I change it up, every year, to try new things, if they’re comfy, I wear them,” said Freeman.
What does it like being a brand ambassador for Dude Wipes?
“What’s it like, you know, it’s been fun. The reason that I decided to be a brand ambassador for them, as I had a lot of great conversations with the CEO and the founders. They all do Beachbody workouts, they do my workouts and they are just very realistic in what they do, and how they talk and that’s how I am. So, it’s something from a cleanliness standpoint, especially guys, we can all talk about a little bit more. Some people see it as taboo, and I just don’t really care. It’s been fun, different and challenging at times. Every month, I try to present the products from a unique standpoint, but also make sense of my brand,” said Freeman.
Freeman’s favorite Dude Wipe products are the original and shower wipes.
“My favorite one is the original one, just straight Dude Wipes, but I have really grown to love their shower wipes because they’re basically encouraging showers after a workout or something. So if after a workout or something and you can’t go straight to a shower, the wipes are awesome,” said Freeman.
If Freeman could have a conversation with anyone died or alive, it would be with someone from the ancient Roman times.
“That’s a good question, who died or alive. I think if it was somebody died, I would have to go back to ancient Roman times and talk to some of the guys who were ahead of their time. Whether it be like Archimedes or anyone in terms of inventors. I would ask them, what their mentality was at the time, to see how and why they were able to be far ahead of everyone else. I have always been fascinated with that world and how they were able to create things, that seemed to be outside of their technology. Yet, we have become very dependent on our technology. They were able to do things, from a very simplistic standpoint, and create stuff, that obviously withstood the test of time,” said Freeman.
