LXTV — Channel 4’s new 5 p.m. lifestyle show — is looking for a fitness expert, to host a weekly segment. He should be an expert trainer, a skilled communicator, an inspirational figure — and a hunk.
NBC New York’s website is pretty clear:
We searched the city for the hottest athletes and trainers we could find….We’ll introduce one “hunky” a day and you’ll get a chance to vote for your favorite in an online poll next week.
One of those “hunks” is one of our own. Dave Lipson — Staples ’01, son of Staples choral director Alice Lipson and Temple Shalom rabbi Mark Lipson — is a top 5 finalist in the NBC search.
After graduating from the University of Rhode Island, playing professional baseball and earning the highest certification as a strength and conditioning coach, Dave founded CrossFit Exodus in Manhattan. A broad, inclusive fitness program, CrossFit is used by police academies, special operations units and champion martial artists around the globe. Dave has established a reputation as a CrossFit expert — and a fitness coach who connects personally and directly with every client.
Tomorrow, Dave appears live on the 5 p.m. show. Channel 4 airs his bio, and he’ll answer questions. Viewers vote online, from 6 p.m. September 18 through the 21st, to pick the weekly fitness host.
Here’s hoping Dave piles up a hunk of votes.
