My Favorite Hamstring Exercise

The Glute-Ham Raise is by FAR one of my favorite exercises not to mention my favorite for posterior chain development. The video here talks about HOW to set this up even if you don’t have access to that piece of equipment.

I’ll say it may not be as great as the manufactured piece but its pretty hard and will do the job 🙂

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.

Jeep Wrangler Chest Press

Rowlett Personal Trainer Jeep Chest Press

Good ol' Jeep Presses

 

I wanted to change things up a bit this weekend and instead of posting up a training article I figured that I would showyou some of the fun things that we do in our workouts. I know that the word “fun” can be subjective, but I still think its pretty cool.

Sometimes at the end of  a workout I’ll want to do something a bit different so the last few weeks my partner and I have been using his Jeep for some of our exercises. For those of you who are just now reading this blog may be surprised by that but for those of you who know me probably aren’t surprised at all. Now to those clients that I have that are reading this they are probably just shaking their heads thinking “Oh my trainer is crazy”… well maybe a bit 😉 [Read more…]
