Are you a Spartan?

Posted by on Nov 26, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

2 Years in a row I did the Tough mudder with my good friend Ashley and a client of mine, Mack.This year I did a small Run Or Dye Event with my girlfriend and good buddy Dillon. Next year brings on another challenge, Spartan Race. The race is held in Temecula and is on January 25 2014. Are you a Spartan?
Who wants to do this!?!?

I play by the rules.. Do they?

Posted by on Feb 21, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Story Time: As some of you know.. I train myself like I train my clients. It is kind of “Showy”, and the Trainers at 24 would remove equipment near me that I was using and move it to another location of the gym. Other trainers would take over a piece of equipment that I was using that had my towel placed on it as a “Reserve”

I’ve asked the General Manager to please have the trainers leave me alone while I work out during my lunch breaks.

Recently I have been posting Videos of Extreme Exercises on 24 hour Fitness, Irvine Spectrums wall and they kept them up for a few days.

Today they asked me if I could stop filming at their location because its “Against Company Policy”. I agreed and continued my work out as I usually do.

I went to my gym and filmed a exercise some of you saw today. Posted it on their wall to inspire others.

I never mentioned that I was a Fitness Professional but only wanted to have people to have fun while working out and change up their routines.

I just went to see if my videos were still up, and I can no longer post on their wall and all my inspiring videos have been deleted.

I am not playing the “poor me card”, because all my videos were “Show boating” but what else can I do when I have equipment being removed from where I am working out on a daily basis.

Next step? Bring my own equipment! Sleds, Equalizers, Sandbags, kettle bells, bosu balls and more.

Is this against their policy?

I have done many events like the Tough Mudder with my clients. A local newspaper decided to contact me in order to conduct an interview regarding my experience with Tough Mudder events.

Warning: Do not try this, this is for a personal conquest.

My roommate and I have had this on going conquest to do Plyometric on a stability ball. I started with 1 stability ball and decided to move onto jumping from 1 to another 1.

I feel that to reach your peak level of fitness, sometimes you need to push yourself just a bit harder.

Imbalances

Posted by on Jan 27, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I don’t know about most of my clients; however, I tend to put my wallet in my right rear pocket and never in the left. While driving, instead of placing my hands on the steering wheel at the typical 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock position, I place only my right hand at the 11 o’clock position. What do you do?
Also, think about how we sleep every night. Most people spend approximately 1/3 of their day sleeping. Do we sleep with our spines aligned? What position do you sleep in?
Do we exercise good posture at the dinner table, at our desk or even while taking a walk?
Every hour, day after day, week after week, and so forth, our body, a machine that was created to work in perfect harmony, begins to break down because we get lazy. Just like any machine that is not maintained, it will begin to break down.
We need to break this habit, and keep our bodies well-maintained as we would keep any machine, in order to live long, healthy lives.
In part two we will discuss how doing small things in our lives can have detrimental effects on our bodies.

Irvine Mud Run – Spartan Run

Posted by on Jan 18, 2013 in Blog, Events | 0 comments

Last year I had the privilege to meet Mack. He was very hyped on these events that would put his training to the challenge. He introduced me into events like the Tough Mudder, Spartan Run and other events that challenges your strengths and dominates your weaknesses. It combines sub zero water, thick mud, and only a few 15 foot walls all within the first few miles. If this doesn’t sound like fun to you, try doing it in a ostrich costume.

I have completed two tough mudders and plan on taking on the Super Spartan, January 26 2013.

This event I will be taking the journey by myself to see the limits I can push myself too. All we need is that little push.
