    🙋‍♂️ MEET THE HOST
    My personal training journey started in college. Before that, I was never really into any aspect of fitness. I ate what I wanted, ran a 15 min/mile and couldn’t tell you the difference between a plank or a pushup. That all changed in college when I began playing intramural sports. Through complete trial and error, I quickly learned the technique and became obsessed with the gym. It wasn’t long until I learned how I could change my life and realized I can now accomplish things that everyone told me would be impossible. 
    Personal Training has taught me how to pass this knowledge onto others. I truly understand what it feels like to be hopeless and lost. I’ve helped many different clients of all backgrounds achieve their goals; this allowed them to witness changes that they didn't think were possible. 

    Redefine Fitness is my answer to all fitness questions. It's not about having the biggest muscles or being the fastest runner, rather it is about helping you redefine yourself into the best version that you can be! My goal now is to spread the word that life isn't worth giving up on and anyone can achieve anything.  I plan on growing Redefine Fitness to a fully established brand, push myself into motivational speaking and eventually leave a permanent mark on this world

    The Best Exercise Program for Weight Loss #quicktipepisode

    The Best Exercise Program for Weight Loss #quicktipepisode

    As a trainer the most common question I get it is,
    "What is the best exercise program for weight loss?"
    The answer is always HIIT training
    HIIT stands for Hight Intensity Interval Training and is done by tracking Heart Rate Zones. It can be either done with cardiovascular exercise or through circuit training.  I prefer the later because circuit training also builds muscle and muscle helps increase our metabolic rate to keep the weight off.

    So how do I do HIIT training?
    First you need to calculate your Heart Rate Zones:
    Step 1: 220 minus Resting Heart Rate
    Step 2: Resting Heart Rate times the percentage of your Max
    Step 3: Add back your Resting Heart Rate

    After you have your zones, then you can work on going in and out over certain intervals of time.  For example, one minute on, one minute off.

    Do this at least 3 times a week and watch the magic happen!

    Should I Take Vitamin D? #quicktipepisode

    Should I Take Vitamin D? #quicktipepisode

    Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced when ultraviolet rays from the sun hit the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D is essential for many body functions and is particularly important for the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is also involved in immune system function and may have other roles in the body. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a loss of bone density, which can contribute to osteoporosis and fractures (broken bones). Severe vitamin D deficiency can also lead to other diseases. In children, it can cause rickets. Rickets is a rare disease that causes the bones to become soft and bend. Sun exposure is an easy and efficient way for the body to get vitamin D. The skin makes vitamin D when it is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from the sun. However, it is important to be safe when in the sun and to get enough vitamin D without increasing the risk of skin cancer.
    #vitamind 

    Here are some common questions:
    How much vitamin D do I need?
    What are the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency?
    How can I get more vitamin D?
    Can I take too much vitamin D?
    What are the risks of vitamin D deficiency?
    Can vitamin D help with certain health conditions?
    What foods contain vitamin D?
    Can vitamin D be harmful if taken in large amounts?
    How do I know if I have a vitamin D deficiency?
    Can vitamin D be taken with other medications?
