Fitness Fridays: Training
Friday, March 22, 2013
We worked out in a basketball court so it was a little different from the tennis courts that I'm used to. He definitely pushed me with motivation and it was a great first work out with him. It was mostly a leg exercise so I definitely felt the soreness for the following couple of days, but it's also a satisfying feeling.
Just a little bit more on my trainer, here's some details about him (mostly paraphrasing):
When did you start training? To get fit, I started in 2008. I started with wrestling, jiujitsu, and martial arts. I started weight training a little after that since I was competing. Competitors are twice as strong and to keep up I wanted to weight train. I started training people last year in 2011, around summer time. It started out training a couple of my friends and from there, people have referred me.
What made you get into it? I was fat, so I wanted to be fit and raise my confidence up. When you feel good, you look good. I recently became interested in being healthy internally and I'm into learning and taking vitamins, supplements, and nutrients.
What are some tips for someone who is starting to work out and have a healthier fitness lifestyle? I would say start with basic exercises and read up on the latest weight trends. Eat lots of proteins and fibers and no sugary foods. Take personal responsibility and actually start by doing, not by saying. Start off hard at the gym or anywhere you can, even if you might not know what you're doing, just try your best and change your diet immediately.
What are you interested in besides training? Brazilian jiujitsu. I used to compete and I'm actually going to start again so soon, I'll be training everyday to compete. I like to find out the latest ways to build muscle tissues in the least/fastest time. If you walk into my house, you'll see bananas, oranges, vitamins, supplements, and even posters of Brazilian jiujitsu.
I'll be training with him when I can, and I'll be taking a kick boxing class this weekend which I'll probably post about next week! If you'd like to link up to Fitness Fridays, see the widget below! xo
