Athlete Profile: Date Nite

By admin | In Athlete Profiles | on September 14, 2012

Most of our members come to either AM or PM classes because of work or family schedule constraints so many of them only know the people in their classes. However, one of the few people in the gym that everyone knows, by virtue of the legends of his superhuman strength as told in the oral tradition by Jason B., is Date Nite. In honor of this CFI celebrity’s birthday, Keron (Mrs. Date Nite), wrote this lovely post:

Aside from his real name, there is a lot you may not know about Datenite. Here is a brief, celebratory birthday bio:

  • Matt is a natural athlete. He is a scratch golfer and former team captain of the Rice Owls golf team.
  • Matt wore a suit and tie everyday for 10 years while working as an investment banker in New York City.
  • After moving to sunny California Matt threw aside the monkey suits and started his own business, Accesa Healthcare, located in Torrance.
  • Datenite, Matt’s CF avatar, is absolutely obsessed with Crossfit. When I hear moans, groans and hip hop music emanating from our living room at night, I can roll over and rest peacefully because I know it is just Datenite watching CF WODs on the computer.
  • Matt has 2 little girls. Karma (age 3) and Maya (5 months). Karma calls crossfit ‘jump jumps’ and knows daddy’s best parlor trick is standing on his head.
  • Matt is turning 40 today and, thanks to CF and his incredible self discipline, he is stronger and healthier than he was 10 years ago.

There is nothing more debonair than a man who reads to his girls at night and makes his wife coffee before heading to the gym at 7 am. Please don’t make him do too many burpees if he is late.

Happy 40th birthday, My Love!

      A couple of other fun facts about Matt:

      -He and Troy started the Stupid Human Tricks Circus in the gym
      -Many 5pm guys regard him as their Rabbit and often begin their class with WDDND?
      -Has a man crush on gymnastics guru Carl Paoli

      Happy birthday Matt! Thanks for setting the bar in the gym for the young folks AND the old folks!!

    Happy Birthday Date Night! Hope you have a great time celebrating with the fam. Sorry I called you Mark a few weeks back when we ran into each other at lunch…..it’s just I never use your real name. I’m guessing that’s how it goes for people that know superheroes…no one ever calls them by their real name!

    Happy Birthday Matt!!! You and Keron are a huge inspiration to me, successful in your careers, lead a healthy and fit lifestyle, and are great parents to two beautiful little girls. I hope I can be as badass as you when I hit 40! Have a great birthday weekend!

    Love the post, Keron! :)

    You all are the best. Thank you for all of the awesome wishes. 40 certainly feels like a milestone, but chasing all of you keeps me young(er). I am looking forward to the “Masters” division though! Thanks again, Date Nite

    Happy belated B-Day, Date Nite!

    Okay, Keron shared some great facts about Matt aka Date Nite. But many don’t know the true story…..well here you go.

    01 Date Nite’s tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
    02 Date Nite counted to infinity – twice.
    03 Date Nite does not hunt because the word hunting infers the probability of failure. Date Nite goes killing.
    04 If you can see Date Nite, he can see you. If you can’t see Date Nite you may be only seconds away from death.
    05 Date Nite sold his soul to the devil for his strength and HSPU ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Matt roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn’t stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.
    06 When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Date Nite.
    07 Date Nite built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. As Oswald shot, Date Nite met all three bullets with glistening Abs, deflecting them. JFK’s head exploded out of sheer amazement.
    08 Date Nite has already been to Mars; that’s why there are no signs of life there.
    09 They once made a Date Nite toilet paper, but it wouldn’t take sh*t from anybody.
    10 A blind man once stepped on Date Nite’ shoe. Date Nite replied, “Don’t you know who I am? I’m Date Nite!” The mere mention of his name cured this man blindness. Sadly the first, last, and only thing this man ever saw, was a fatal roundhouse delivered by Date Nite.
