Fit Folks: Kevin Carollo
Kevin Carollo, 29
I am 29 years old and a police officer with the University of Texas Police Department. I am hoping to join UTPD’s new bike unit. Outside of patrol, I teach basic self-defense courses to students and the community. I also am working to fight rape culture by teaching sexual assault prevention: teaching boys and men not to rape by redefining masculinity and discussing consent. I follow a whole-food, plant-based diet. I do weight lifting and interval training at Beyond Fit, a wonderful vegan fitness community. I train in mixed martial arts at Martial Way with friends. It includes sparring, conditioning and grappling. On weekends, I play co-ed soccer with the Austin Coed Soccer Association. I would like to improve my flexibility by practicing yoga.
