We sat down with Streat to learn a little more about him, when you see him in the gym make sure to give him a big hello!

What song would you play on repeat?
Eye of the Tiger’
Not exactly a song I put on repeat but it gets me pumped before competing!

What’s your favorite workout of all time?
We will share this workout later during our Thursday classes.But his reasoning is as follows:
This has more to do with the fact that it’s the best I’ve ever done on a worldwide ranked workout, I don’t particularly love the movements. It gave me a lot of confidence going into the 2017 season. 

Where did you go to school and what did you study?
I went to the University of Iowa and got my degree in Industrial Engineering. As you can see my career path has changed a bit at the moment.
