Berries! Hope everyone is having an amazing new year so far. We wanted to feature Derek as HMOTB of the Week because he's a hottie and a total bad ass. I'll let him take it from here...

Hey Y'all. I'm just a fan, have been from the early days. Derek Weida from Saint Paul, MN. I'm 28. I was an Airborne Infantryman in the 82nd Airborne Division. I took a bullet in Iraq in 2007, side-to-side through my right knee. I'm just one of those kinds of guys that naturally lives the spirit y'all try to share. Over the years, through time and treatment, I've become more comfortable with sharing my stories as a means to inspire and motivate people to get up and get out there. I'm working on starting up my own gym here in Saint Paul, MN - military style group fitness classes led by myself and other veterans. That's all i'spose. Cheers.
