There is a way to eat stuff your face like a pig AND still lose body fat.

Strong is Hot

So you want to be strong and look good while doing lifting it.Strong is Hot - Fitness Revolution Rowlett

I have yet to have anyone complain to me that they were too strong and honestly who wouldn’t want to be strong enough to do just about anything that life throws at them.

Now the question comes up… how do you get ‘strong’?

Well the solution sounds easy doesn’t’ it; just lift more weight every time and you’ll get strong, but really how many people are doing that on a consistent basis?

Are you breaking records every week?

Are you where you want to be in strength or at least are you well on your way?

7 Things to Look for in a Personal Trainer

Since summer is just on top of us more and more people are looking to get a trainer. Hey this is great for me! BUT… I will say that sometimes Fitness Revolution Rowlett and the potential clients schedules just don’t align, it happens.

If a situation like that happens I NEVER want a person to walk away and wonder “Well now what?” So for those that are looking for a trainer but for some reason can’t make it here but still feel like you just need that personal attention, I want you to watch this video.

Side Note: I do have a program that is made for these individuals that are set on being apart of Fitness Revolution Rowlett BUT just can’t make it to our times. It’s our distant coaching program and its begining to become pretty popular. Take a look here <==== Click the link

I made this video a while back but just never had a reason to post it until recently.

 

7 Things to Look for When Hiring a Personal Trainer

 

There are some great trainers out there, heck some even I would pay for, and unfortunately just as in every industry, not so great trainers. So I made this video to give you an idea on WHAT I LOOK FOR when assessing a great trainer. This is my experience over the course of 10+ years.

If your going to spend your time and money I want to make sure that you get a GREAT one not just some Average Bro that has you do bench press and bicep curls till you can’t move.

Its a long video but it has some valuable info for those NO BS people that want the best.

Not your typical wall squat

Awesome Squat Technique!

This will be the final video that I will do, for the time being, on how to do proper leg work. Honestly I could go on all day about tips, tricks, form and technique but it can get a bit too much into the science of specific conditions. If you have questions though, post them in the comment section below and I’ll be more than happy to help 🙂

Better looking glutes… and safer :)

With all the videos that I have been doing over proper leg work I figured that I need to add in explanation on how to properly initiate a squat.

Most think that you need to bend your knees first but that is BAD… that is a fast way to wear them out. Instead we want to start the motion out with our hips. Take a look at the video and you’ll see how I teach this motion to ensure that anyone who tries this well not only build a better backside and NOT sore knees.
