Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: Miguel Gisbert

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Miguel Gisbert

Meet Miguel Gisbert, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! He is an avid rock climber and Personal Trainer who splits his time between Spain and the UK. He speaks Spanish + English and loves to work with people from around the globe. We recently had the chance to chat with Miguel and learn about his passion for climbing, trail running, and the great outdoors!

Tell us a bit about your background and where you’re from.

Miguel: I was born in the middle of the mountains in Spain, in a small town called Alcoi. I’ve lived in several other places over the past few years, like Alicante, Barcelona, and Cambridge, but have always remained in contact with the outdoors and my training.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Miguel GisbertWhat inspired you to become a personal trainer?

Miguel: I have always enjoyed helping people and sharing my passion + knowledge with others. I started working as a mountain guide when I got my International Mountain Leader qualifications to teach both climbing and mountaineering courses. After that, I decided to go to university to study Sports Science and I got my NSCA Certified Personal Trainer qualification so I could focus on turning my training into a career.

What are your training specialties?

Miguel: I would say that my strong points are climbing and trail running because they are the specialties that I love and in which I have the most experience. However, I have also spent a lot of time helping people with general/health training and weight loss.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Miguel GisbertWhat’s your favorite Workout Trainer feature?

Miguel: When I discovered the app, I immediately loved the way you can create your own workouts and even your own exercises. This powerful tool allows me to work with infinite possibilities for my own training and my clients, which I found really useful.

Who are your heroes?

Miguel: Kilian Jornet is a great example of a legend I look up to. Following his journey has taught me how to be really dedicated to my training, competition, and how to be connected with the mountains with respect. 

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Miguel GisbertWhat keeps you motivated to stay fit yourself?

Miguel: For me, training is mostly about my health and ability. I train to be healthy and enjoy a good quality of life. I also strive to reach some personal goals that I set for myself, this really helps motivate me.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Miguel: I have to admit that I love pizza and beer ūüôā

Do you have any go-to training gear that you would recommend?

Miguel: I like completing training programs in which you not only train to build your strength but also your balance, proprioception, and technique. I like to focus not only on the main muscle groups but also the supporting, synergists, and stabilizers. So I am a huge lover of all ‘unbalancing’ gear like Bosu, FitBALL, and TRX.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Miguel GisbertPlease share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…

Miguel: As a tip, I would recommend two things! Number 1: Go out and start training. Don’t think about the distance you are going to run or how hard you are going to train. Just get up off that sofa and start, because that’s the most difficult part, the rest will come. Number 2: Your diet starts at the supermarket. Don’t buy what you shouldn’t eat because if it’s not in your home, it won’t be in your belly. It’s that simple! Remember to always treat yourself to a piece of fruit (or other healthy snack) instead of that cookie you wanted to buy, to kill your hunger moments with healthy alternatives.

Thanks for sharing with us, Miguel, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your training biz!

Skimble’s Pro Workout of the Week: All Around Warm Up

Warming up is such an important, and often overlooked, part of any workout. Before you hit your next fitness session, try a short 10-minute warm up and see if you can feel the difference. Warming up your muscles can reduce the risk of injury during exercise and also gently increases your heart rate for a more effective workout. Use this short warm-up sequence or create your own variation!
