For the last seven weeks, we’ve followed Kris Gethin’s every set, rep, and step in his hybrid bodybuilder-and-triathlon video series Man of Iron. But we’re no longer the only ones! Just days before he undertakes his biggest challenge yet, a half Ironman, Gethin went on the local news in the northern Idaho town of Coeur d’Alene to talk about his training, his mad race-prep experiments—no AC at home, anyone?—and the unique charity you may not have known he’s been helping all along.

Kris’ race takes place this Sunday, June 25. You can follow it live on the Ironman site for the race, or just wait a few weeks to watch the adventure unfold in Man of Iron. If you’d like to contribute to the Unique Home for Girls, the India-based orphanage that Kris helps to support, visit his JustGiving page.
