  trolled environment, respecting all the dangers and hazards of what you are going to do. You lead up to the level of no tether — all the training and practicing leading up to the point of confi- dence and ability to perform the act, and gradually you build your confidence. I honestly believe it’s 70% mental, 30% physical.
My family was involved in all aspects of the circus. My moth- er raised lions and tigers, and I grew up with them in our house. I grew up everywhere, but I do call Sarasota, Florida, my home. It’s a magical place and also the circus capital of the world.
AL: If you start a family, will you keep the legacy going? BW: Absolutely. I will do my best to teach them our heritage and culture that I was blessed to be a part of but will not make them feel forced as that would take the fun out of it.
AL: The Signature Prime Steak & Seafood was your restaurant of choice. What did you order for us to try?
BW: This is one of my favorite restaurants on Oahu, their steaks and seafood are incredible. Being in this profession, your body is your temple. I try to be as healthy asIcan,butmoreso,Iamnotjust an athlete, I’m also a performer. I do try to eat more proteins, veg- etables that are low in carbs and no sugars, and keep caffeine to a minimum. We do exert our bodies in training, set up, traveling and
keeping our minds stress free, but at the end of the day I know that I will be treating myself to a nice steak after my performance.
The Beef Carpaccio ($19.95) is one of the best carpaccios I have ever had. You can taste the ca- pers and tenderness of the beef. It’s a generous portion to start the meal.
The Prime New York Strip (16 ounces, $59.95) has a bit of a crunch with every bite and is buttery and tender. You can’t go wrong with this steak. Plus, it’s big enough to feed two people.
This restaurant’s cuts of meat are 42-to-48-day wet-aged USDA certified prime steaks, served with butter on sizzling hot plates heat- ed to 300 degrees fahrenheit.
It’s also known for an array of fresh seafood selections. I or- dered the Seared King Salmon ($43.95), which is also one of my favorites. The Truffle Mashed Po- tatoes ($9.95 or complimentary with a meal) is a must with every steak order. And, we can’t forget the Grilled Asparagus ($13.50). It also has an extensive list of wines by the glass.
AL: Anything else you want to share?
BW: I have set the world’s record for the longest headstand on the wire, and later on this year, which we haven’t publicly announced yet, I will attempt to walk the tightrope while a motorcycle jumps over me at the world’s largest motorcycle rally in Stur- gis, South Dakota.
