Last min holiday gifts for those fitness buffs

Hey, sometimes we don’t know what to get people and we need some last min ideas. Here is what I personally recommend… in fact I hope to get some of these this holiday season (wink wink) 🙂

 

1. Resistance Bands – Any of my clients that have worked with me know that I’m a HUGH believer in resistance  band training. Why? Bands just put stress on the body in ways that gravity or free weights can’t, helps reduce injury time, helps prevent injury, more versatile than free weights (come on I have bands that go up to 200lbs, beats the hell out of carrying a 200lb weight were ever I go), the list can go on. Get a pair and I promise you can’t go wrong. Resistance Band Training <—- Click on the link

 

 

 

 

2. Foam Roller – If you haven’t found out about this secret to proper warm up and tissue quality then my friend you are missing something that will change your life in training… I’m not exaggerating about that claim either. Just trust me on this, it is the best investment that you can do.        Perform Better Foam Rollers

 

 

3. TRX System – Want to bring the workouts to another level? Suspension training is an amazing way to maximize bodyweight training in angles that can’t be done anywhere else. If you don’t believe me on this look at a gymnast and you’ll see what I’m talking about 😉  

 

 

4. Prograde Supplements – I won’t tell you how important proper supplementation is to training because I’m sure that you’ve heard it and frankly I could rant all day. One of the best supplement companies I’ve used and I highly recommend it. Feel free to e-mail me if you want my personal recommendation on what you should start with.          Prograde Supplements

 

 

 

 

 

5. Personal Training – I’m a trainer you knew that I was going to plug this in the list lol! On a serious note a few sessions with a good trainer can make the world of difference when it comes to someone’s workout. We can tailor workouts and exercises to fit that person’s needs and really cut the learning curve down exponentially which can save
you sooooooooo much frustration. For more info send an e-mail to Travis@fitnessrevolutionrowlett.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Food – Yes you read that correctly, I said food. Not just any food of course but healthy food for those healthy nutrition buffs. Sometimes the biggest hassle with that is the preparation of course but I have been using a company for the past few months and these people have it down! I’ll have more articles about this on down the road but they will have you a month’s supply of prepared, healthy, good tasting (I’m serious about that too) food to you the next day! As a fitness buff this just awesome! Click On this Link!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Massage – Recovery is just as important part of an exercise regime as the gym work, in a lot of cases proper recovery is even MORE important. How do I figure that? If you’re not recovering properly then all your doing is just continuing to tear down your body and never let it show the results of the work you put into the gym. A good set of hands is hard to find I know but e-mail me and I’ll personally send you the contact info on who I use… she is amazing!

Rate your trainer

Rate your Trainer

Does your trainer have a background in exercise science, kinesiology or athletic training? Is she certified?
(A) I don’t think so
(B) Of course, both
(C) I’m not really sure, she’s never brought it up.

 

When you ask her a question about health and fitness, what is her answer?
(A) Typically she doesn’t know. She always says she’ll get back to me but never does
(B) She knows a TON, but even when she’s not sure, she has a link of health professionals that she can ask
(C) We don’t talk much during our session.

 

Before you started training, did she offer you references or testimonials from clients?
(A) No
(B) Yes, several
(C) It didn’t come up

 

Does she know your spouse, children, dog, or other important factors about your life–your support system?
(A) We don’t really talk about it
(B) Definitely; she asks about the family at least once a week
(C) I know her boyfriend’s name

 

Does she create programs and track progress?
(A) No. She doesn’t do any of that.
(B) Yes. She gives me my workouts and tracks my progress.
(C) Why would I need a program?

 

Does she motivate you?
(A) I show up.
(B) She knows my good habits and bad habits, and encourages me to go further.
(C) I show up.

 

Are you seeing results?
(A) Some, I suppose.
(B) Definitely.
(C) Not the ones I wanted, but I’m getting more fit!

 

Mostly A’s:
Seriously consider hiring another trainer, or chat with your current trainer about these issues. Something isn’t working! You pay good money for great service, you should be getting every penny’s worth. If you need help, Contact Us!

 

Mostly B’s:
It sounds like you are seeing results, feeling great and have a well-educated trainer. Awesome! Keep up the excellent work and make sure that you two continue to communicate effectively.

 

Mostly C’s:
What’s the problem? If your trainer seems distracted, find out why. She hasn’t revealed much about herself, or asked much about you. She might just be a workout buddy. While fun and helpful, an elite personal trainer uses her education to design a program for you. Have a talk with her; if education or nerves are the problem, you’ll know after a heart-to-heart. If things just don’t click, get a new trainer. Breaking up with a trainer may be hard, but ultimately you are paying for results. For more help, just reach out! <—–click here
