If you were to walk into the sleek Exos training facility in Frisco, Texas, you would hope to run into Romby Bryant. Described by the Exos team as a “fixture of the facility,” he is a Trust Member and Former Player who embodies the importance of striving for both physical and holistic health years after one’s career on the field is over. “He is one of our most active and engaged Trust Members,” those at Exos said, and while “constantly setting the pace for those around him, he also has a lot of fun here.”
From training regularly at Exos to attending Breakfast Clubs (six-week programs that aim to enhance the lives and lifestyle habits of Former NFL Players), those who are lucky enough to work out with Bryant describe him as a constant source of motivation. His presence has helped build a locker room feeling for other Former Players, who have grown connected to the camaraderie and encouragement that he embodies.
While the Exos staff didn’t hold back when raving about Bryant— “He's in great shape and is probably as fit as he was when he was in his twenties”— Bryant himself is much more humble— “There is just no way,” he laughed.
