What are your specialties?

I specialize in periodization, weight loss, hypertropy, power, speed, mobilty and post rehab. Before understanding all that, cooking/nutrition was the foundation. Growing up in 90% vegetarian household with a vegetable garden, I acquired a deep understanding of nutrition. In Addition, understanding how the body and heart adapt to certain hearts rates gives me an edge because I don’t have to just rely on external body signals which are less reliable. I use proven periodization principles. Primarily, I use heart rate zones which are first predetermined by a VO2max test to set workout intensity levels. This information from the VO2max test will help you lose fat, build muscle, and prevent injuries. A solid understanding of exercise physiology and the functions of workload is a must for any coach and be assured that I have the personal experience to help you achieve your goals. Also, I have the luxury of being able to consult with other mentors and clients who are involved an all aspects of society. 

Definitions:(source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sports_periodization)
Periodization is the systematic planning of athletic or physical training.The aim is to reach the best possible performance in the most important competition of the year. It involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a training program during a specific period. Conditioning programs can use periodization to break up the training program into the offseason, preseason, in season, and the postseason. Periodization divides the year round condition program into phases of training which focus on different goals.

Have you trained someone with my body type?
Yes. We have worked with male, female, big upper bodies with a smaller lower body, or vice versa. Body types vary so much, and so our understanding different bodies, while knowing how the body works, communicating effectively, and the abnormally high desire to succeed, will always bring positive results. It is our job to understand what you envision for yourself and help create what you see. We achieve that vision in the safest, most efficient, and cost effective way possible.
How much coaching experience do you have?

“Ive has been coaching his whole life. From a very young age I was a fashion coach… talking about to siblings on what “style” was.” Eventually that transformed  into a fitness consulting business.  2012 was the inception of FastesTTransition. Since than literally hundreds of people have achieved their goals with us.

 

What kind of client do you prefer to work with?

Our perfect client is someone who is hungry to better themselves, who will adhere to the training plan, and who communicates with my regularly. That being said, The staff at FastesTTransition pretty much get along with everyone. One of our favorite sayings is “treat others how you’d want to be treated”. Life is binary, you either increase self awareness or die with regret.

Where will I train?

We may switch workout locations. Places we will go, depend on what needs to be worked on and your availability. For Example, Parks, Pools, Lakes, Oceans, Roads, Studios, and our Studio & Workout Room. Training in different places will speed the effectiveness of these sessions. You musat be willling to travel 15 minutes to the environment that can have profound effects on you.

How will you track workouts when you're not around?

GPS, Accelerometers, Gyroscopes, Power meters, HR monoters… and any other technology that comes out that we can get our hands on. This is the new age of training. We stay on top of it and lead the charge.

Do we do house calls?
Yes. Many of sessions can be done in different locations depending on the season, what stage of periodization we are in, and the availability of the tools/equipment needed. Most of my training equipment portable. If you prefer to workout out in a particular place for whatever reason just let us know and we will determine if that location has the resources to achieve that sessions goals.
Can you garuntee results?

If you follow the plan. Yes. And I will make sure your ready before you even start. We will focus on the obstacels and channel your efforts.

Can I call you for training advice?
Definitely. For example, If you are feeling fatigued from a prior day’s workout and the next day you begin to think you might not have enough energy to do your upcoming workout we can certainly adjust your session for that day, try motivate you, or give you tips on how to physically get more energy before you begin. It is important to us that you succeed. Checking our email and phone regularly is habit. Your success is our success!

We believe that people can always make time for the things they truly want to do. Also, we won’t be distracted with other clients when you need our attention. Our time is your time. Although we do take pride in our ability to multitask, we will only multitask in session on things that are about you!

People of all ages compete in Triathlon. From ages 7 to 70 can easily finish a sprint distance triathlon with the proper training. So the sport has a wide variety of age categories, and we enjoy accommodating athletes in all of those categories including special needs age-groupers.
What if I need to cancel a session?

Life happens. We understand unforeseen issue can arise that can make it difficult to workout. If we have an “in person” or phone meeting you must let me know within 24 hours if you cant make. I will do the same.

Why Train for a Triathlon? Why not Train for just one sport?

Helping people train for triathlons to this degree is advanced. It was a natural progress from helping people put on muscle and losing weight. Training one sport can make you fit, but doing all three makes you more fit. Just swimming, can’t give you the developed calves and shin shin muscles than a cyclist and runner builds. Just cycling, can’t give the upper body of a swimmer. And running alone make you much more susceptible to injuries. The list goes on and on. Why not get the best of each sport? Each sport compliments each other so well because it creates a body that many believe is the most aesthetically pleasing. Its works every muscle in the body. It creates a body that is resilient, energetic, and beautiful.

How do you stay in shape?

Swimming, biking, running, lifting weights, BW exercises, and eating right. Doing contracting and renovating houses is hard work too. Other hobbies include rock climbing, skim/surfing, skating or yoga.

What are your long term Goals?

“To continue helping people become the best versions of themselves. Eventually, my mission is to achieve my level III USAT certification. That would enable me to contribute even more to the sport that I love. Id like continue to build a network of amazing people around to revolutionize the society we live in by being an influeners. I truely believe in one persons ability to help enrich millions of lives.”
