“Lose 120 pounds and become an Ironman … after beating a brain tumor.”
Damn impressive, right?
Colin Kaepernick thought so … and that’s why Charlie Jabaley was picked to be featured in Kaep’s new Nike commercial.

Charlie used to be 300 pounds. He also used to manage rap stars like 2 Chainz and Travis Porter — but quit his job to focus on health when doctors told him a brain tumor from his youth had come back.
Charlie tells TMZ Sports … he had always wanted to be a pro athlete — and after his health scare, he kicked his workout regimen into high gear.
He started biking. Running. Swimming … and documented the whole thing in a fan-made Nike commercial.
The spot went viral and caught the attention of Nike execs who were so impressed, they selected Charlie for a feature spot in the new Kaep ad … alongside LeBron James and Odell Beckham.
“They put me in what I believe is the most culturally shifting ad campaign of all-time,” Charlie tells TMZ Sports.
“It’s just an honor to be in it. I love it. It’s so inspirational. It’s talking about the crazy dreamers of the world, and that’s all I am. I’m one of the crazy dreamers. So thank you, Nike.”
Yeah … you hit the gym today yet or what??
