You can read the rest of the interview with him—and find out how he’s planning to turn Cleveland’s luck around—here. After catching up, Furthermore asked him to go through a football-inspired workout at Equinox Sports Club LA. His opponent: his brother, Austin-based Matt Mayfield. Now in the finance industry, Matt played baseball while at Texas A&M. Said Baker: “I wanted to work out with Matt because he takes it very seriously—every day. He's very fit, very healthy, and I figured what better way to have a good competition rather than having cameras around and the lights on?"
For Matt, 28, and Baker, 23, youthful competition evolved into a strong friendship. “I always admired Matt and loved watching him play and loved watching his work ethic,” said Baker. “But we were just always competing in anything we did—that was always fun.”
And while the two had plenty of trash talk throughout their session, they also personify brotherhood in the best of ways. Of Baker, Matt says his best qualities are loyalty and drive. And they agree on at least one thing: “If you're going to invest any time in something, why not do it 100 percent? Or else you're just wasting our time and anybody else's time involved in it,” said Baker.
The two put that mindset into practice in the video above. Scroll down to try the workout for yourself.
