Testimonial for TRX Training

I take pride in working with my clients, developing a personal relationship, and helping them achieve their goals. Read what one of my satisfied clients has said about my TRX classes!

“So there I was, at the WRONG end of my closet…not good. I’m turning 40 this year and am actually excited about it.  But, it was time to admit that I can’t fight Father Time forever. It was time to stop spending six months getting in shape and then letting it all go until those pants no longer fit, only to start all over again. I needed direction but couldn’t afford a personal trainer. Does that sound like an excuse? Not good enough? Well, I have two little kids and erratic work hours, making it really difficult to attend evening classes. That’s 0 for 2 so far. Did I mention I’m a night owl and HATE getting up in the morning to go to the gym? Three strikes. So that was it, right? Not so fast; all these excuses didn’t change the fact that I had three pair of pants (including the “mom” jeans) that fit me. Then, there were those two little kids at home who needed a good role model, not someone who would just keep buying new pants while ending up sick and frail before her time. Speaking of time…JUST IN TIME, Clarita found Jennifer Billings and TRX! No one and nothing else in this world could get me to the gym at 6:00 a.m.; but, just three classes a week for two months have me back at the right end of my closet! YAY!! I’m also stronger than I’ve been since my 20’s. The best part is that TRX is included in my Personal Best monthly dues! Am I using too many exclamation points? I can’t help it. Personal Best is the only gym in the South Bay that doesn’t charge extra for TRX. Since there are only 5 students per class, it’s really like having a personal trainer. Besides the fact that Jennifer is totally fun (EVEN at 6:00 a.m.!!), the small classes allow her to tailor the workout for those “extra special” areas. So, what are you waiting for?”

The search for the perfect pant…I love lucy!

As a fitness professional, I have been on the hunt for a pant that fits and looks great, and is functional for all activities. The search is over!

 The Hatha Power Pant by lucy is the best pant I have ever purchased. I wear this pant while training my clients and for my own workouts (i.e. weight training, running, TRX Suspension Training, and yoga). What’s great about this pant is that it fits like a glove with its maximum compression. No more having to pull your pants up in the middle of class. The moisture wicking fabric wicks the sweat from your body so it keeps you cool and yet somehow keeps me warm even at 6 a.m. on a cold beach run. Another great feature is the hidden front pocket that’s perfect for holding a key or money for a coffee 🙂

But by far, the best feature for me was the length, at 5 feet tall finding a pant that I don’t have to hem is just unheard of. Well, lucy has pants in lengths for all sizes. So, if you’re tall (5’9″ and up), average (5’4″ to 5’8″) or, a vertically challenged individual like myself, you can grab a short pair (5’3″ and under). 

What’s really cool is that on their website www.lucy.com, when you click on a tab i.e. Bottoms, you see models wearing the pants and they turn 360° so you can actually see what the pants look like on a person. This is so much better than just a static picture where you really have no idea what the pants (or tops) look like on.

The Hatha Power pant comes in black with black piping, black with fuschia piping, and navy blue with turquoise piping. It also comes in a capri length!

I now own 2 pairs of the Hatha Pant and plan on getting another pair very soon. The only thing I would like to see is the black pant with red piping to match the beautiful Power Yoga Halter I have in red. Thanks so much lucy for these amazing pants! Keep up the good work!

 

Pros: Flattering, Functional, Sexy, Sturdy, Stylish
Cons: They are a little pricey at $88 but, you definitely get what you pay for and compared to other retailers i.e. Lululemon, these pants are more affordable and you just cannot beat the fit and quality of lucy.
Best Uses: General Fitness, Strength Training, TRX Suspension Training, Yoga, Pilates, Running, and Sports Training

Bottom Line: I would highly recommend these to my friends and clients.

TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD Review

I’ve been watching and purchasing fitness videos and DVD’s since the days of Jane Fonda so, I believe I’m pretty qualified to judge a good one vs. one that’s just not so great. So, when I was asked to write a review for the NEW! TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD, I was honored and happily obliged.

The TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD focuses on strength, stability, and power. It’s a great full-body workout in just 30 minutes. Jessi Stensland, a Professional Triathlete, runs through 8 of her favorite exercises. I just finished watching it again and I’m very impressed with the combinations of exercises shown. The exercises are broken down so that the first 15 minutes are spent on upper body and the last 15 minutes focus on lower body and core.

She cues each of the exercises with a concise yet thorough explanation. What I really appreciate, is that she tells you what the length of the TRX should be and the correct positioning so there is no question. It is also shown at the bottom of the screen at the beginning of each exercise. She refers to the importance of bio-mechanics (spinal alignment) and proper posture throughout the workout. She also talks about unilateral training and how it can be used to correct imbalances in the body and help prevent injuries.

This is a great DVD for beginners and instructors/trainers because she clearly explains the modifications and goes through each exercise in a slow and controlled manner. Jessi has a great attitude and an amazing figure, she’s upbeat and you can tell she’s having a great time which in turn makes this a great DVD to watch.

Overall, I’d give this one 4 stars out of 5.

As a side note: I am a HUGE FAN of the TRX. I bought it as a tool for personal use and, since I’m a Personal Trainer became TRX certified so I could use it with my clients. What I love most about the TRX is that it’s great for ALL LEVELS of fitness because each exercise can be modified by just changing the position of the feet or the body. I bought several TRX’s and now teach TRX Group Fitness classes at a very reasonable cost. So, if you’re in the South Bay (Redondo, Hermosa, or Manhattan Beach, Torrance, or El Segundo area) feel free to contact me.
