Handstand Trainer of the Day: Meet Raymond
My Secret and Favorite Health and Fitness Tip:
Keeping my clients on their toes by making the workouts fun, intense, and always changing it up so they never know what to expect. My tip to anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle, is to be patient and trust the process. If you're putting the time in and eating right, you will reach your goals, trust me.
First Time Working Out With Someone New:
Communication is key when working with someone new. To get the most out of their workouts, its good to know your clients and their fitness goals. Getting to know your trainer is equally as important.
My Favorite Snack:
This is something that is constantly changing for me. Right now it's a smoothie I’ve been making as part of my morning snack. Great for an energy boost and curbs the sweet tooth (just in case you have one of those). If you ask I just might give you the recipe….maybe:)
My Workout Style And Some Tunes I Love:
If it's active, I’ll do it! I enjoy everything from cardio, weight lifting, HIIT, functional training, and of course, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Tunes are a huge part of my workouts. I listen to anything, AC/DC, Zac Brown Band, Sublime, Avenged Sevenfold..etc. If it has a good beat, it's probably on my playlist.
My Background in Health & Fitness:
I guess you can say it's in my blood. My mother was a jazzercise instructor and I was constantly around family involved in fitness. Ever since I can remember it's been a part of my life in some way. 7 years ago I finally decided to turn what I love into my Profession. I’m lucky enough to be a personal trainer/nutrition specialist, along with a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor, and I couldn't be happier.
You know what they say, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.
