Talk about bringing the New Year in with style!
I decided to go for my Personal Trainer Certification. In order to achieve this, I am going to need some "on the job" experience. In the personal trainer world, that comes in the form of leading people through one free trial workout.
There are only so many family, friends, and coworkers with whom I can do workouts in person. Therefore, I figured I would make a post here to look for virtual volunteers. I would need just 30 minutes of your time for one free trial workout. This could be done via Skype, FaceTime, or some other video chat program.
The exercise program I'd be teaching you is the same one that I have been doing since January 2020. It is called "High Intensity Training," which is NOT to be confused with "High Intensity Interval Training." (Note that I left out the word "interval.")
When I started doing HIT, I weighed 241 pounds.
By June 2021, I was down to 163.
That is almost 80 pounds...approximately ONE-THIRD of what I weighed when I began!
High Intensity Training is an exercise routine that is done 2-3 times per week for 30 minutes per session. It involves lifting weights in a slow, controlled manner.
This protocol is:
It is easier to show you how HIT is done, so here is a video in which my coach Jay Vincent walks me through a session. You don't need to watch the entire thing; feel free to take in just enough to get the gist of it.
A NOTE ON EQUIPMENT: You will not need access to the machines that I use in the video. I will be showing you a workout that can be done from home with minimal gear.
Items you may or may not need are:
If you don't have lifting straps or even know what they are, then follow this link:

FOR YOUR SUBJECT LINE, PLEASE WRITE:
"Interested in Free Virtual HIT Workout"
There is no pressure to continue training with me after this workout. However, if you wished to do that, then we could certainly discuss setting that up, as well as what rates would be available to you.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope to help some of you get in the best shape of your life soon!
