Clinton Suh Biography
Clinton Suh was born in Los Angeles, CA. He attended the University of Southern California and studied at the Marshall School of Business. Clinton is of South Korean descent, as his family emigrated to the US in search of the ‘American Dream’.
In the early stages of his life, Clinton had the underdog mentality of “nothing to lose, and everything to gain”.
“The underdog should never feel that they do not have the tools or resources,” Clinton says. “My parents are a big inspiration, their relentless effort and selflessness are the principles and morals that I hold today.”
Clinton has a passion for marketing and building brands. He held leadership roles at name brands such as Vans and was the Senior Director of Digital Strategy for the luxury name brand, Coach, and currently is the Head of eCommerce for North America at On Running.
Since he can remember, Clinton was always into fitness as his outlet. He started weightlifting as he did not want to accept “mediocrity in terms of [his] immigrant upbringing”. After a short period, he noticed his physique and fitness started to improve progressively. He eventually worked his way up from high school sports to become a collegiate rower for the University of Southern California, for which he has presented the distinction of Pac-12 First Team.
“I tackle fitness across the corporate world, personal identity, and social environment. To me, life is a journey and you’ve got to make it a lifestyle,” Clinton says. Sharing his fitness journey with others has become a core element of Clinton’s identity over time. “This is something that folks would frequently ask me about,” he explains. “Enabling information sharing amongst something that you do organically is something that maximizes my overall fulfillment.”

Clinton Suh’s Diet and Nutrition
In terms of his diet, Clinton always knew the importance of nutrition to sculpt a shredded physique. You can find his nutrition plan for free on the footer of his website. He does intermittent fasting as this ensures that he has more energy without having breakfast in the morning.
Emerging evidence has shown that the health benefits of intermittent fasting stretch beyond calorie restriction and weight loss. A 2022 study suggests benefits in a metabolic shift in energy production, optimization of peripheral circadian clocks, and overall improvement in physiological markers of metabolic health.
Clinton plans his meals around lean proteins, high fiber, fruit, and vegetables. He cuts carbs out of his diet. “There’s no perfect solution, it’s all trial and error.” He emphasizes “the only thing that’s going to work is what you can sustain long term.
- Breakfast: lots of water
- Lunch: Chicken breast with grilled vegetables and Konjac rice
- Snacks: Blueberry with greek yogurt or healthy homemade ice cream
- Dinner: Chicken breast or tempeh with endless veggies
The main hack that helped Clinton stay lean is to limit his carbs intake from his diet and eat uncooked vegetables.
