Earlier this week, Team Csweat had the privilege and honor of training the Special Olympics delegation from Columbia. We hit the gym at the LA Athletic Club, with Eric the Trainer, his crew and Chris Shelton of Morning Crane Healing Arts Center. It was an awesome day with some very incredible people. Celebrity Sweat were thrilled to meet and train with such great, enthusiastic people. We wish the delegation much success in the upcoming Special Olympics.
Earlier this month, Celebrity Sweat visited with the Atlanta Falcons for an upcoming episode of our reality series, and had the chance to catch up with one of our very first ambassadors – Devin Hester. In addition to filming fitness and training tips with several of the Falcons’ players, we donated some Celebrity Sweat draw string bags to Devin for his foundation’s work with the Play 60 initiative. Play 60 strives to get kids active and fit through an array of programs and events with participating franchise teams and players.

To make the toasted bread cubes, toss the bread cubes together with the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium low heat. Season with salt and toast, stirring occasionally, for 4-6 minutes, or until the bread cubes are lightly browned. Set aside.
