Late afternoon on a mild sunny sunday I skipped up the stairs equipped with my camera ready to shoot The Calisthenics King Hit Richards. I already knew Hit would be traveling a good distance from Queens, N.Y. to the Bronx, N.Y therefore I sat patiently in a nearby neighborhood restaurant having a bowl of soup. In a matter of 10mins Hit came through the door waving and smiling..you could pick up that Mr. Richards is a good spirit! Hit and I convo flowed as we talked about fitness and life until I finished my soup, afterwards we headed immediately to the park to shoot footage of The Calisthenics King!
George “Hit” Richards live and breath physical fitness from the time he could walk! Active in basketball, football and baseball Hit was always physically cautious and made the full transition by his 20′s to make physical fitness his second skin! That skin grew thick in the “Calisthenics” realm Hit sculpt his infamous body only using his body weight through hard work and discipline.
The sunset crossfade into the night and we headed to our next location for the interview. In this exclusive video interview Hit talks about his beginnings, training, workout routines, food tips and the making of his new book, calendar and dvds. Enjoy!
