Hard-working, family man, grit. These words can be used to describe the man that many fitness publications consider the “fittest man in the NFL.” This is why Steve and True Grit decided to collaborate: Steve takes pride in always being the hardest worker in the room, and True Grit provides the fuel!
Steve was born and raised in Indiana, showing amazing athletic ability from a young age. He went on to earn All-State honors in football, basketball, track, and soccer, and eventually went on to All-American in football and track. His success came after countless hours of time and sacrifice, early mornings and late nights. Once a mere 114 pounds, Steve knew that to become an elite athlete, he needed an elite work ethic. This type of grit enabled him to set franchise records and ultimately win a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2012, where he earned the championship ring in his home state.
Steve's commitment to fitness completely changed the direction of his philanthropic efforts, and his primary focus is sharing his passion and experience with children as well as members of the military. Under the umbrella of his foundation, the Steve Weatherford World Champion Foundation, Weatherford mentors close to 150,000 kids in his roles as Health and Fitness Ambassador of the Boys and Girls Club of New Jersey, and as ""head coach" for Wellness in Schools. The Steve Weatherford Charity for Ghana, Rush the Punter, which is held in his hometown of Terre Haute, Indiana, raises money for the United Way and Kicks for Kids. In 2013, Weatherford was recognized for his outstanding community service by his football team with the coveted Wellington Mara Award, and in 2014 was the Giants' Walter Peyton Man of the Year award recipient.
Steve's future is bright; he is passionate and focused on motivating and inspiring the next generation to find happiness through the commitment to one's self, health, and family. You can follow Steve and his journey on his social media channels.
