Rocco Mediate succeeded in losing 30 pounds of body weight, which he attributes to VersaClimber Cardio Exerciser Climber. According to an article by PR Web, the PGA golfer trained on VersaClimbing training, which helped him lose weight. VersaClimber is a total-body, vertical, non-impact cardiovascular exercise machine that works out all the major muscle groups at one time in a smooth, upward climbing motion. The machine seems to be working wonders for the professional golfer, as it helped him effectively burn fat and calories to drop 30 pounds.

The article mentioned that Rocco Mediate preferred to keep it simple when it comes to weight loss. He ate the right food items and consumed them in smaller portions. He avoided any sorts of packaged products and food high in sugar and carbohydrate. And he supplements his diet by working out one hour a day and six days a week.
About his VersaClimbing training method, Rocco Mediate had this to say: 'It's [VersaClimber] always an uphill climb, and this time was no different.' He was climbing 4,000-5,000 feet each night, which helped him drop pounds considerably.
Rocco Mediate had a drinking problem in the past, as there was no day in his adult life when he did not drink. He, however, was able to get rid of his drinking problem on October 23, 2017. He has even admitted to the press that he used to drink alcohol on the course during his matches.
Rocco Mediate suffered from a drinking problem.
'Absolutely I have (played while drinking),' he told, as per CBS Sports. 'Because it was just normal for me. It was just a daily ritual, let's say. You can put it in a lot of places. A lot of places. Was it every time? No. But most of the time, when the pain came in, it wasn't not going to happen.'
'I didn't need alcohol, I just wanted it,' Mediate added. 'I enjoyed it. Simple as that. If I woke up and I was like, 'Oh God,' then we have some serious problems called rehab. Didn't want to have to do that. Had a small headache for about four hours, and that was the end. Done.' Rocco's avoidance of alcohol was also one of the contributors to his recent weight loss, and he is thinking of staying that way.
