Cam Oja

Cam graduated with a BBA in Marketing and a Minor in Management Information Systems – he’s always enjoyed talking business but had an interest in technology so he pursued a path that combined the two disciplines.

After college, Cam spent 11 years at Turner Broadcasting (now Warner Bros. Discovery) in a variety of roles. He worked in project management overseeing various digital websites in the portfolio, traveled the world working with a global innovation team, and then worked in business development for NBA Digital.

Cam has always been passionate about wellness and living a balanced lifestyle so he is excited to bring that passion + his business background to STAT Wellness. He is also the husband of our founder, Kristin Oja, and they have two adorable little girls (Emery & Letty) that you might see running around Roswell or Atlanta occasionally.

INTERVIEW WITH CAM

How do you stay healthy with a busy schedule?

With 2 kids under 2 it definitely requires some planning to stay healthy! First thing I do is always go to the grocery store every Sunday and make it a priority to never miss it – this gets us setup well for the week so we all eat right and don’t end up in a situation where we have to eat unhealthy in a pinch. Second thing is to be consistent with my workout schedule and carve out dedicated time each week – consistency is everything so I’ve found the days/times that work best for me and I don’t compromise on them. Last thing I do to stay healthy is to always carry a water bottle with me everywhere. Have to stay hydrated (even if that means lots of trips to the bathroom)!

If you could eat one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Easy! Mexican food. There is so much variety, so many good flavors, and tons of dishes that are easy to eat on the go.

Can you share something about yourself with us we may not know?

My all-time favorite hobby is cooking. Starting in middle school I got really interested in it and watched a ton of Food Network (big Good Eats with Alton Brown fan over here!) – I was also very close to going to culinary school but ultimately decided not to. However, I still love to cook, try out new techniques, and build up my own personal list of recipes!

Do you have a favorite inspirational podcast or book?

How I Built This podcast – really cool to hear the origin stories of big brands and the journey the founders went on to build their businesses.

What’s your all time favorite song to workout to?

Anything from Kanye West’s Graduation Album – 2007 was a good year for music!

 

Tell us how you first got interested in health and wellness.

In my mid-20’s I wasn’t very intentional with what I was putting into my body and I started to feel it – not only with weight gain, but poor sleep, trouble concentrating, and lots of brain fog. I started to realize how impactful food was on all of those things and made changes to better myself. I also learned the importance of consistency and balance in making these changes so I stayed away from fad diets/wellness trends and instead focused on some of the basics: balanced meals, adjusting my sleep patterns, limiting alcohol, quarterly functional medicine visits, and getting strength training + cardio part of my weekly schedule. I also learned a ton from Kristin (our STAT Wellness founder) on all things related to my health!

 

What is your spirit animal and why?

A monkey! They are incredibly smart, playful, have an emotional IQ, and are just so human-like. It blows my mind.
