This week we caught up with Orangetheory Fitness coach, Trevor. We got to hear a little more on how he spends his time outside of the studio and how he is getting ready for the warmer weather!
What’s your biggest motivation to get into shape?
For me, it has always been about self-confidence. I have seen it both in myself and in clients. When self-confidence is increased, the human mind and body can accomplish incredible things. It brings out this energy in people that I can’t describe. It’s like the feeling of being able to accomplish whatever challenges are thrown our way in our day to day life.
How do you create new routines so your clients are always trying something new?
I like to establish benchmarks with my clients. By that I mean every two to three months I will have a specific challenge for them to see if they’re ready to progress to a more intense style of training. For example, I had a male client that was seeing great strength increases in his pressing movements. So, I had a day where we went both heavy weight with low repetitions and light weight with high repetitions to test both his muscular strength and endurance. Once we established his weak and strong points I programmed a new structure tailored to him.
What’s your favorite part about the warmer weather?
I love the fact that I don’t have to wear 10 layers of clothes! Also being able to run outdoors and try to get a killer tan.
How did you figure out you wanted to become a trainer at OTF?
When I got my first certification at the age of 21 I applied to a bunch of local gyms in my Texas hometown. Orangetheory was the first place to give me an opportunity. It was honestly a huge blessing and I haven’t looked back since.
What is your favorite thing to do on your day off?
On my days off I enjoy playing basketball, volleyball, virtually any sport or napping.
If you had the choice, what would your go-to meal be?
Dominos hand tossed large pepperoni pineapple pizza for sure!
What’s the most rewarding part of working out for you?
I enjoy both the mental clarity and the self-confidence. When I finish a workout and achieve that endorphin high is when I typically become the most productive.
