CEO Q&A: Exercise in the Morning? Wine with Lunch?

CEO Q&A: Exercise in the Morning? Wine with Lunch?

In each issue of Franchise Update magazine, we profile franchise CEOs and presidents, asking each the same set of questions. Throughout the year, we'll be selecting one of those questions - and providing answers from those profiles.

This week we asked them: Exercise in the morning? Wine with lunch?


Jon Nobis, CEO, Two Men and a Truck
I have recently started exercising in the morning when my brain is still asleep, and I find it much less painful. Also, a $100 mini-elliptical machine under my stand-up desk was one of the best investments I ever made. Read the full profile here.

Rob Price, CEO and President, School of Rock
Since we are a child enrichment program, booze doesn't really have a role. And who has time for lunch when you are growing like School of Rock? I exercise about four times per week, usually at night. I work with a personal trainer twice per week. Read the full profile here.

Brian Petranick, CEO and President, RiseMark Brands
Exercise morning, noon, and night. I am a little bit of a fitness fanatic, so I need to be open to work out whenever the opportunity presents. I will always choose to do some sort of workout over wine with lunch. Read the full profile here.

Nicole Ossenfort, CEO and President, Liberty Tax
Do brain exercises count? I don't typically have wine with lunch. Read the full profile here.

Michael Poates, President and COO, Mr. Gatti's Pizza
Exercise in the evenings, wine on the weekends. Nowadays, more exercise and less wine. Read the full profile here.

Tammy Whitworth, Chair and CEO, Window World
I do love to exercise in the mornings, but I rarely have enough time in the afternoon to enjoy wine with lunch. Read the full profile here.

Larry Oberly, CEO and President, SpeedPro Imaging
I love a lunchtime run on a gravel trail or some strength training. This is why I love Colorado so much--there are trails everywhere. Exercise over the lunch hour is my time to recharge and free up my time at home with my wife and son. A drink with lunch, rarely, and certainly not while I'm running! Read the full profile here.
