MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We’ve all seen Dick Enrico in the 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment commercials. Here’s a chance to get to know a few more things about one of the Twin Cities best-known pitchmen and CEO of 2nd Wind.

1. You know my first job out of high school — a long time ago in Chisholm, Minn. — was selling pots and pans to single working girls.

2. My favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities is Jake’s in Eden Prairie. Don’t even need the menu. Chicken chop, forget the bleu cheese and double up on the Craisinettes.

3. You know, if you were to show up in my house in Wayzata and look in my closet, what you would find an abundance of — an overabundance of — is long-sleeve monogrammed shirts. A lot more than I’d ever be able wear.

4. Being an Italian from the Iron Range, we all had nicknames. Mine was Gweedo.

    He’s an icon of the twin cities! I think his kid was on the bachelor tv show too.

    1. Really? says:

      Would you listen to yourself…and Icon? Really…the dude is on some cheese 2nd wind commercials, and in your mind that qualifies him as an icon?

      He is as much an icon as the lady who bagged my groceries last night.

      You sir….are a moron.

      1. Chuck says:

        Really? What the heck kind of comment is that?!

        Please spare us your lame opinion if that is the best you can do…
