Monday Open Thread: Black Fitness Gurus

Shaun T (born on May 2, 1978), is an American motivational speaker, fitness trainer, fitness motivator, businessman, television personality, and choreographer. He is best known for his home fitness programs for adults and children which include T25, Insanity and Hip-Hop Abs. Shaun is 6 feet 0 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds.

Shaun T was raised in Deptford, New Jersey. He grew up playing football, baseball, and running track. He attended Rowan University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Sports Science and minored in Theater/Dance. While there, he was initiated into Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. After gaining 50 pounds in his freshman year of college, Shaun T became interested in fitness and changed his course of study. He now lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

His career began as a health and fitness specialist. He also became a personal trainer and health program manager at Wyeth and also worked at a number of fitness chains, including Equinox Fitness. Shaun T began dancing in college, at 21 years old. He was required to teach an aerobics class which was part of his Sports Science degree and then became an aerobics instructor. After graduating from Rowan University, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked as a choreographer, dancer, and trainer. His first professional work as a dancer was for Mariah Carey. Shaun T was teaching a fitness class at Equinox Fitness where he was approached by representatives of Beachbody and asked him to submit a demo for a workout video.

Shaun T has been openly gay since October 2012 and is married to Scott Blokker.

Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon launched the Beachbody fitness company in 1998. They were looking for new fitness workout home videos. They approached Shaun T who submitted a demo which would later be called “Insanity”, released in 2009. It was termed “the hardest workout put on DVD”. It was sold through TV ads. Because of the difficulty of the workout and its popularity, Shaun T has been a guest on The Oprah Winfrey ShowThe Tyra Banks ShowDoctors and the Dr. Oz Show.

Shaun T’s first work for Beachbody, Hip Hop Abs was released in 2003. In 2007, it was the top selling workout video in the United States.

  • Slick

    I’ve got to say something here cause y’all understand. You all know the dangers and the stresses of raising black males in this country. Well our family was devastated this weekend.

    In 2004 we buried my sister after breast cancer took her from us. On July 8th, 2014 her youngest, my nephew, had a nasty motorcycle accident that left him in a coma for 3 wks. He finally recovered after a long struggle. This weekend, exactly 3 years to the day, on July 8th 2017, he had seizure while driving and died from his injuries.

    We’ve struggled and pushed this boy through school, we argued over the motorcycle purchase to no avail. And he finally graduated from college 3 weeks ago, was going to turn 24 in Nov. and just like that he’s gone.

    The hurt is so deep right now.

    • Town

      I’m so sorry to hear this.

      OMG, Slick, I’m so sorry for your loss. I understand how you feel, it’s hard to lose a young one, especially when they show such promise. Praying for your and your family.

    States Push New Voter Requirements, Fueled by Trump
    JUL 10 2017, 9:32 AM ET

    MARSHALL, Mo. — Paul Gieringer let Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft talk for half an hour, explaining the state’s complicated new voter ID law to a crowd of two dozen at the local community center, before raising his hand.

    “How many cases of voter fraud have there ever been in Missouri?” Gieringer, 61, asked.

    “We know it’s happened,” said Ashcroft, 44, noting that he didn’t have any hard numbers, although he cited a 2010 incident in which a couple claimed a false address on their voter registration forms to vote in a primary election. “How many are an OK number? Is it OK to have one or two?”

    The Republican secretary of state didn’t mention that the new law he’s traveling the state to promote — aimed at combating voter impersonation — wouldn’t have stopped the couple, a fact his office later confirmed.

    “He brought up the red herring of voter fraud,” Gieringer later told NBC News.
    Missouri is one of eight states that have passed or are implementing laws with more rigorous voter identification requirements this year.

    Fueled by President Donald Trump, who has claimed, without evidence, that voter fraud deprived him of the popular vote in 2016, there’s more energy behind election legislation than ever before. Trump has appointed a federal commission to find and combat voter fraud — a problem experts say doesn’t exist on a large scale.

    • rikyrah

      They have completely revealed themselves

  • jziglar

    Too many white people in this country refuse to take responsibility for their own actions. I still see some people trying to blame Barack Obama for the hacking with one person on twitter saying a plan should have been in place to prevent cyber attacks. Well, there is little the federal government can do when it wasn’t the federal government that got hacked, it was the DNC, DCCC, John Podesta’s personal email, etc. Those are private institutions/people that don’t fall under the federal government so there was nothing the federal government could do. People like Maggie Haberman and the rest are grasping for straws because they know they’re responsible for this train wreck, but they want to spin in to blame others and especially the black man.

    • jds09

      The major receipt that everyone tries to ignore (except the IC) is that GOP leadership refused to address the Russian inference. Straight up said NO. That element of the federal government refused to act. Party before country.

      That moment is gonna go down in history. PBO has the presidential records to prove it and the IC has the audio and visuals to prove the reason why.

      • BoomerGal

        Tell it, jds!!

    • JojoRaze

      I also recall PBO creatibg a cybersecutiry division and. lobbying for a law that would’ve prevented the hacking if nuclear businesses reported this weekend, which repubs and big businesses were saying was gov’t overreach.

    • The Shy Lurker

      The big four beat the fire out him.

      He has a big game, but not the defensive skills or the mental toughness to match.
      He’s been rendered basic. (A path I see Tsonga has followed I’m afraid.)

      I truly think if he played in the late 90s and early 00s he’d have bagged a couple of slams.

      • Alma98

        I agree with everything you said and Tsonga…..sighhh. I didn’t realize underachieving Isner was 32 already. And I’m tired of folks thinking just because a player has a big serve they should automatically be a natural serve/volley. Some just don’t have it. i think Raonic, Isner suck at it lol. Also I can’t stand that fake Russian Kevin Anderson hahahaha!

    Jobless Rates for Hispanic and Black Workers Fall to Historic Lows
    A decrease in unemployment rates coincides with better wage growth and labor-force participation
    Jul 10, 2017 11:13 am ET

    A long, if unspectacular, economic recovery appears to be paying dividends for two groups that disproportionately suffered in the wake of the Great Recession.

    The unemployment rate for Hispanic or Latino workers fell to 4.8% last month, the lowest level on records back to the 1970s. The rate for black Americans was 7.1%, the second-lowest monthly rate, bested only by April 2000’s 7% reading, according to the Labor Department.

    The decline in unemployment for blacks and Hispanics comes with a significant caveat: Both June lows are higher than the 3.8% rate for whites, and the 4.4% overall rate.

    Still, low joblessness is a sign that the recovery, featuring 81 straight months of job gains, is reaching groups that experienced a harsher recession than white and Asian workers. Overall unemployment touched a recent peak of 10% in October 2009. Black unemployment reached 16.8% in March 2010. Hispanic unemployment touched 13% in August 2009 and stayed near that level for more than a year.

    Federal prosecutors step up probe of land deal pushed by wife of Bernie Sanders
    July 10 at 11:12 AM

    A federal investigation into a land deal led by Jane Sanders, the wife and political adviser of Sen. Bernie Sanders, has accelerated in recent months — with prosecutors hauling off more than a dozen boxes of records from the Vermont college she once ran and calling a state official to testify before a grand jury, according to interviews and documents.

    A half-dozen people said in interviews in recent days that they had been contacted by the FBI or federal prosecutors, and former college trustees told The Washington Post that lawyers representing Jane Sanders had interviewed them to learn what potential witnesses might tell the government.

    The investigation centers on the 2010 land purchase that relocated Burlington College to a new campus on more than 32 acres along Lake Champlain. While lining up a $6.7 million loan and additional financing, Sanders told college trustees and lenders that the college had commitments for millions of dollars in donations that could be used to repay the loan, according to former trustees and state officials.

    Trustees said they later discovered that many of the donors had not agreed to the amounts or timing of the donations listed on documents Jane Sanders provided to a state bonding agency and a bank. That led to her resignation in 2011 amid complaints from some trustees that she had provided inaccurate information, former college officials said.

      Career number 137 (you know I’ve had at least 218 careers) was at a private university. Moving an entire university is no small feat, and a capital campaign would have been underway FOR YEARS to facilitate such a move, after the requisite feasibility studies and change management implementation.

      Furthermore, having worked in development at said university, as well as capital campaigns in and out of academia, there are strict best practices in place. One is a signed gift agreement by donors that details gift amount, payment installment dates (if it is a multi-year gift or pledge) and a copy of the check or checks. This documentation is forwarded to the CEO, COO, corporate counsel and board governance officer. Furthermore, a capital campaign is subject to regular quarterly reporting and special audits, as part of the system of checks and balances.

      How did this woman amass the kind of power that would prevent due diligence by the board, as well as corporate oversight from other senior university officials? Being seated on the board of directors carries a fiduciary responsibility for the safe stewardship of the university, so what the hell – why did they abdicate their responsibility?

      Somebody help me out here.

    Trump aides learn the perils of speaking for a president who changes his story
    July 10 at 7:18 AM

    Trying to keep up with someone who routinely shifts his story often leaves White House surrogates holding the bag.

    Aiming to satisfy a hard-to-please boss, many senior administration officials have sacrificed their personal reputations by making dubious or even false statements — only to be undercut by President Trump himself just hours later.

    Sunday brought three fresh illustrations of how perilous it can be to speak for Trump.

    — Immediately after Friday’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the president told his Russian counterpart that members of Congress are pushing for additional sanctions over Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election. “But the two presidents, I think, rightly focused on: How do we move forward?” Tillerson, who participated in the sit-down, told reporters in Hamburg.

    In his first comments since the Putin meeting, Trump tweeted yesterday morning: “Sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin.”

    Morgan Southern fires trucker who spoke about 20-hour workdays
    USA TODAY Network Published 9:50 a.m. ET July 10, 2017 |

    Rene Flores said he regularly broke the law as a port trucker in southern California, hauling shipping containers up to 20 hours straight between Long Beach and Phoenix.

    He kept a fake logbook tucked beneath his seat so regulators wouldn’t know he was violating federal fatigue laws for commercial truckers.

    He said his company paid him so little — and charged so much for his leased truck — that he had no choice.

    Flores said his managers at Morgan Southern knew about his hours, but for years the trucking company looked the other way.

    Then, the 36-year-old father of two talked publicly about his illegal hours in a USA TODAY Network story.

    On June 17, the day after the story published, Morgan Southern fired him.

    Flores couldn’t afford to pay off the $30,000 balance on his leased truck, so the company took that too. Flores lost $60,000 in lease payments he had made since 2013.

    Don’t Leave Health Care to a Free Market
    JULY 10, 2017

    When it comes to health care coverage, House Speaker Paul Ryan says, “We’re going to have a free market, and you buy what you want to buy,” and if people don’t want it, “then they won’t buy it.” In this model of health care, the patient is consumer, and he must decide whether the goods and services he wants to protect his life are worth the cost.
    But this is often impossible. And what Republicans, and many Democrats, forget to stress, is that in a totally free market health care system, you must be willing to let some patients die.

    Racy Emails! Charles Payne’s Affair With Alleged Sexual Harassment Victim, Exposed
    Posted on Jul 10, 2017 @ 9:24AM

    Charles Payne and alleged sexual harassment victim Scottie Nell Hughes‘ racy emails have reportedly been found, RadarOnline.com can reveal, and the evidence tells all on the TV personalities’ three-year affair.

    According to reports, the shocking emails come after Hughes accused Payne of having sexually harassed her and threatened her position at the company.

    “You are going to need every once [sic] of energy if we are ever given the chance of lots of time and no commitments,” read one of Hughes’ alleged emails dated back to 2013.

    In a email titled “Another sleepless night” she reportedly recounted a sexual dream she apparently had of the two, writing: “Do you know what I keep dreaming about.. You and I in the pool… My legs wrapped around your waste [sic] and you have me pressed up against the wall of the pool.”

    Hughes continued: “Skin glistening and smelling of coconut… You thrusting yourself deeper inside with each push… And your fingers grasping each of my cheeks. Holding me to you.”

      Hi Tunisia!

      The fallacy of US exceptionalism said that wypipo didn’t need no stinking degrees to get ahead. College is for those savages to try and get equal with wypipo, and then they surpassed wypipo – hence, college is for ‘the elites’.

    • jziglar

      It’s viewed negatively by a majority of republicans because the party has fully transformed into a bigoted, know nothing, anti facts, white grievance party. Also you have nut jobs on the right trashing the idea of pursuing higher level education.
