Kirk DeWindt lost his shot at being The Bachelor, but he's still in the market for love. Our favorite scrapbook maker from The Bachelorette Season 6 and Bachelor Pad 2 is a Wisconsin native who now has his own personal training biz in Minneapolis, MN. He just gave a nice long interview to Melissa Drew of Inside Milwaukee — Kirk fans should read the whole thing, but here are some excerpts from his discussion of food, fitness, music and love.
You've always been active and taken good care of yourself. You used to be a competitive runner and now you are a personal trainer. What do your daily workout routines look like?
Kirk: Typically i workout 6-7 days a week. A typical week would look like this: Monday: Lift chest and core. Tuesday: Lift Back and play soccer. Wednesday: Run 6-10 miles. Thursday: Lift Shoulders and core. Friday: Lift arms and run 4-6 miles. Saturday: Run 6-10 miles. Sunday: Easy run or rest.
Do you have any "super food" recommendations for our readers?
Kirk: This may seem strange to some, but I recommend juicing (yes, like juicing fruits and vegetables). Juicing helps provide your body with soooo many nutrients and all the other good stuff live produce contains without having to bear eating tons and tons of fruits and veggies. A more simple answer? Protein smoothies. Take 1-2 cups of frozen berries, Greek yogurt, and protein powder and put it in a blender. Best energy packed breakfast or meal replacement ever.
I give you all of the credit for introducing me to good music. In fact, you called them "ear snacks" which has since stuck with me. Haha. What are your favorites playing on your i-Pod right now?
Kirk: Must listen to artists are: Bon Iver, Citizen Cope, Dave Barnes, and of course Michael Stagliano.
What 3 qualities do you find most attractive in a woman?
Kirk: Confidence (not arrogance), Ambition, and Empathy.
Lets be honest here. It's an obvious question! All of the girls are going to want to know! Are you still looking for love, or is Kirk off the market?
Kirk: This kid is looking for love :)
