What can you say about a man who has literally succeeded at everything he put his mind to?
Obi Obadike has been taking the fitness industry by storm over the last few years. From magazine covers to the big screen and everything in between, nothing has slowed this man down. Obi has touched more lives in his career in the fitness industry than most people could imagine in a lifetime. His work ethic is unlike anything I’ve seen. While most people would sit back and look at their accomplishments, Obi is constantly looking for the next big thing to get his hands on and change lives. He is truly one of the best at what he does and earning his spot on Spike TV’s newest show, Sweat Inc., is truly fitting. Find out all about Sweat Inc., and why it’s one of the hottest new shows on TV.
Can you tell us a little bit about the show?
Sweat Inc. is about finding America’s biggest fitness phenomenon and our job as judges is to evaluate and critique 27 fitness entrepreneurs on their workout concept and decide who will be the next big thing. Each entrepreneur is put to certain competition challenges and they have to try to win that challenge every round. Each week an someone is eliminated based on how well they do in each competitive challenge.
How did this opportunity come about for you?
I received an email back in March from one of the production coordinators from 3 Ball Productions, who felt I would be a great judge on the TV show, and within two days I came in for an interview. Within a month and a half after the interview, I found out I got the gig.
How long was the process in the works before a date was set to premiere the show on October 20th?
We started shooting the show near the end of June, and in August, I was told of the premiere date of the new show.
