Nate Forse

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Nate Forse, a California coach, helping his clientele reach optimum performance.

Nate Forse is the owner of Forse Lifestyle Coaching based in Marina del Rey, California. Forse inspires me personally and professionally. Personally, I am inspired by his faith, how he reinvented himself, his great physique, journaling, and inspirational Instagram posts. Professionally, I am inspired by Forse’s entrepreneurial spirit.

What is a day in the life of Forse like?

“It varies, but I try to wake up early. I usually wake up between 6 or 7 am, depending on how late, I was the night before. I try to get eight hours of sleep. I wake up and do my morning routine, which involves: first of all, reading my bible, then prayer, then I do my morning coffee. I take vitamins, and I drink at least 2 glasses of water, then I do my journaling. I use a journal called the best self journal, which helps me set up my day, I get that organized. I do some reading, and some journaling, then I text out three things that I am grateful for to my best friend and team. Then, I write down 1 thing that I am letting go of and 1 thing that I am plugging into. So, what I unplug to and what I am plugging into. That’s my morning and I do that every single day before my day gets started,” said Forse.

What would be the title of Forse life story and who would play him in a movie?

“The title of my life story would be momentum. Who would play me, I would say Mel Gibson or Bruce Willis, back in their prime, because I really love those guys, but I guess I would like to go with Brad Pitt to play me in a movie,” said Forse.

What are Forse’s underwear preferences?

“I am a boxer briefs kind of guy, and I have to say Lululemon, they’re going to be my favorite,” said Forse.

What was Forse’s most memorable year?

“My most memorable year, well, there is a couple that sticks out. Really thinking about it, I would have to say 2013, because that was the year football ended for me. I moved to Chicago, Illinois, so I was in a new city. I got cut from the team, I was playing for and a lot of things changed for me. I changed cities, I changed careers, football was no longer the main focus of my life. I found my city, and I also found my career, which was in the fitness and wellness industry,” said Forse.

What is one sentence would Forse like people to use to describe his coaching?

“I help people become: high achievers, uncover their true purpose, maximize their life and master their bodies,” he says.

What does Forse enjoy most about coaching?

“What I enjoy most is seeing people truly change their lives and change the way they think. They start to get in better shape, and they start to feel better about themselves. They might have asked that person out, because they don’t feel insecure about how they look any more or started a business that, they were scared for starting for so long or they’ve lost 10 pounds and they’re finally able to communicate with their significant other better. Those are the things that really get me going because fitness is just a means to an end,” said Forse.

If Forse could travel anywhere with anyone died or alive, who would it be and where would he travel to?

“I would have to go back to Israel and visit Jesus, back in the day, when he was alive,” said Forse.

Jockey

Jockey has been a trailblazer in men’s underwear ever since creating the men’s brief in 1934. Eight decades later Jockey is still showing them while expanding their family.

By: Joshua Conner

I first became a fan of Jockey, after I learned about how they pioneered the men’s brief. I really became a fan of the brand, after they sponsored the Men’s Health Ultimate Guy Search contest, it was a collaboration of my two favorite things men’s attire and Men’s Health Magazine.

Jockey is an industry leader in men’s underwear, activewear, thermals and culture. They are sold in numerous retailers including Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, Belk, & Target to name a few. They have inspired the masses with there Show Em & Jockey Being Family campaigns. Jockey has also had a diverse repertoire of brand ambassadors. Baltimore Orioles All Star Jim Palmer,  American model & actor Aaron O’Connell, former football quarterback & baseball outfielder for the New York Mets Tim Tebow, USMC Vet Chris Van Etten, Actor Remi Adeleke & most recently Pro Dog Rescuer Zach Skow. Jockey also has a great social media presence, with over 73,000 followers on Instagram.

Kennedy Gilbertson is a Jesus follower, father, financial professional, freelance: fashion, fitness, and runway model, internationally published & avid wearer of Jockey underwear.

Gilbertson first Jockey product was the underwear three years ago, but what is his preference?

“Boxer briefs,” he says.

How does Gilbertson #showem?

“I guess how I show em is by how I conduct myself in all my everyday affairs, how I live, and the message that I give to people. I mean, you follow me on my social media,  I try to be as: transparent, honest, and open as I can about my life-like my past & what’s currently going on in my life. Really that’s the thing about life, it happens, whether that’s good, bad or indifferent. I think with the social media age we are in today, a lot of people try to paint a pretty picture that everything is rainbows and butterflies and that’s just not true, it’s not real life.

I think by being authentic, transparent and showing people who you really are, they can relate to you. I think that helps break down barriers and cross over boundaries and that helps connect with people,” said Gilbertson.

If Gilbertson could try another Jockey product, what would it be?

“You know, living in Minnesota, thermals would probably be a good this time of year. I could say probably sleepwear or activewear. My daughter gives me a hard time, being a fashion and fitness model, because I rarely wear the clothes. I rotate about 3 shirts, t-shirts, shorts and activewear. I have a closet full of clothes, but I am always looking for something comfortable. I’m at the office during the day and at the gym, at night, I’m with the kids, so I like being in comfortable clothes. So I think athleisure or sleepwear, something that’s comfortable,” said Gilbertson.
