Four years ago, you wouldn't have called Rich Kylberg an uber-athlete. He was just another beer-drinking guy who liked to kick back and watch the tube.

Not something you expect to hear from someone who competes in triathlons and Ironman competitions, won a CEO half-Ironman in Singapore, and is participating in the inaugural Denver CEO Fitness Challenge.

"After college for about 15 or 20 years, I did nothing but sit on a couch, work a remote. Ate pizza, drank beer. It was a wonderful life," says the CEO of Denver-based Communicom Broadcasting, which owns and operates radio stations in several U.S. markets.

"It was shattered one day by a friend who asked if I would participate with him in living his dream, which was to run the New York City Marathon," he says. "For the first time, I got off the couch and starting running. And I couldn't even run to the corner without being winded."

Four years and many competitions later, Kylberg is committed to staying in shape and having a ball doing it. He recently made a stop at Denver's Colorado Athletic Club to take a 15-minute test that puts him in the running for the Denver CEO Fitness Challenge, a competition that will select the fittest men and women executives in three age categories. The event is organized by Boulder-based CEO Challenges, which organizes sports competitions designed for CEOs all over the world and has sponsorships from AIG and Cigna.

Through Nov. 13, CEOs, presidents and C-suite executives of companies making at least $1 million in annual gross revenue can stop by any of the Colorado Athletic Club's four locations (Denver, Inverness, Denver Tech Center and Monaco) and show:

  • How many step ups they can do in three minutes;
  • How many pushups they can do in one minute;
  • How many crunches they can do until they fail;
  • How far they can reach from a sitting position to test their flexibility.

The top three women and top three men in each group (39 and under; 40 to 49 and 50 and over) will be invited to the CEO Fitness Challenge Finals on Nov. 16 to determine Denver's fittest CEO

The mess and the stink were not worth the trouble or the savings. Not only that, but what happens is what is supposed to happen for that ferret. If your ferret seems afraid, try using the tub method described previously.
