MF: So obviously the showerpooling idea sticks out....
NR: I mean, if it’s available to you that’s awesome. I happen to be married, so it’s really easy and convenient. I guess we were showerpooling before we even knew what it was!
MF: But a lot of guys are too insecure to suggest it, even if they are dating the person. What would you say to them?
NR: Aw, that’s funny. You mostly hear about women with those insecurities, so it’s interesting to flip that. I grew up with such encouraging people around me and nobody was overly body-conscious in my family, so I think I avoided a lot of those issues. I mean, I still have very normal insecurities, but I’ve always been made to feel like a body is a body and it’s not supposed to look like what you see in the media. If I told you how many times guys on set get spray muscles...men need to realize that they don’t need to live up to what they think they need to live up to!
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
