Skimble Member Spotlight: David Jones

Check out David Jones, our latest Skimble Member Spotlight!  Utilizing both our GPS Sports Tracker and Workout Trainer apps, David has played an active role in our super-motivated community for almost a year. We’re inspired by the tenacity of this guy, especially since he’s a busy doctor trainee! Check out his story here:

What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?

I’ve always been fit and fairly active, but Skimble has helped me to push myself more and to vary my exercise to include muscle groups I formerly didn’t focus on. The range of workouts is great! As a result I’ve increased my strength (particularly in my core and arms) and muscle definition.

What do you hope to accomplish, fitness-wise, before the end of the year?

I’d like to do a Tough Mudder or something equivalent – pain, mud, and company is my idea of fun!

Who’s your fitness icon and why?

No particular person – I’m inspired by anyone who is focused on calisthenics and can do amazing things with their body. Recently I’ve been awed and inspired by watching ‘Bar Starz’ on YouTube. If you haven’t seen them go see them – they’re amazing! I’m also inspired by yoga as it combines amazing strength with amazing flexibility.

What’s your favorite thing about Skimble? 

Great workouts, great community! With workouts as short as 5 minutes, who can ever be too busy to exercise!?

What’s your fitness mantra/motto?

“Practice what you preach” – I’m training to be a doctor, so I’d be a fool if I didn’t follow the advice I gave my patients by exercising regularly!
