Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Farrice Cain

Meet Farrice Cain, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! With over 10 years of experience in the fitness space, this guy means business. We recently had the chance to chat with Farrice and learn more about his passion for helping others discover their self-worth and happiness.

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

Farrice: I’m originally from Chicago and just recently moved to Los Angeles. I’ve been a Health and Fitness Professional for over 10 years now and hold multiple highly recognized specializations.

What inspired you to become a personal trainer?

Farrice: I was bullied throughout high school and needed an outlet to deal with it. I figured out that if I worked on myself and worried about my own health and happiness first, life would follow suit. Now, I just want to help and give back to others so they can find their happiness too.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Farrice CainWhat are your training specialties?

Farrice: I ‘m certified as a Corrective Exercise Specialist, Performance Exercise Specialist, Behavior Change Specialist and a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach. I pride myself on designing and creating well-rounded programs that effectively help people achieve their health and fitness goals.

Why did you decide to certify with NASM?

Farrice: I got certified with NASM because they are one of the most recognized bodies in the Health and Fitness Industry. They hold a high standard that needs to be met to become a NASM trainer.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Farrice CainHow did you first hear about Workout Trainer?

Farrice: I first heard about Workout Trainer through the App Store on my phone. I was looking for something I could use, or my clients could use to have access to workouts (and to my guidance) on the go.

What’s your favorite feature in the app?

Farrice: My favorite feature in the app is the exercise library. There are endless amounts of great movements for clients and members to practice. Plus, trainers can create programs with ease as well.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Farrice CainHow do you use Workout Trainer as a part of your coaching business?

Farrice: I use Workout trainer in order to help my clients stay accountable to complete their programs and workouts. I can check to see if they did the assigned workout for the day, which keeps them on track to reaching their health and fitness goals in the desired timeframe.

In your experience, what are some of the benefits of online training?

Farrice: One of the main benefits of Online Personal Training is that you have the ability to reach a larger audience and help train more clients than you could if you were only working in-person.

What keeps you motivated to stay fit yourself?

Farrice: Simple, what keeps me fit is my love for health and fitness! Besides all the great benefits you gain from good health, I’m motivated to give back and help as many others as I can.

Finally, can you share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…

Farrice: I have many tips to share with the Skimble community… but the one I’ll leave you with right now is this. The path to health and happiness is a journey and a process, not an end goal that you achieve and stop once you’ve reached it. So start where you are, anything is better than nothing! It’s as easy as adding a 30 min walk to your daily routine to start feeling the benefits of a healthier lifestyle. 

Thanks for sharing with us, Farrice, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your coaching career!

Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: Darlene Taylor

Meet Darlene Taylor, one of Skimble’s featured Trainers!

She caught our eye because of her dedicated 15-year history of coaching people to become more active. After graduating from college with a B.S. in Health and Wellness including a minor in Coaching, Darlene began her coaching practice. When she’s not training clients, you may find her on Venice Beach serving herself a serious workout (she’s a 5x nationally-qualified bikini competitor). No excuses for this powerhouse!

We sat down with Darlene Taylor to learn more about her favorite workouts, as well as what keeps her healthy and motivated in her daily fitness routine.

 

 

Q 1. What is your favorite type of workout right now?

Darlene: My favorite workouts at the moment are high intensity bootcamp style workouts, like what is in the Body Blast Bootcamp program in Workout Trainer. I like that I can do these workouts anywhere, at home, in the park or even when I’m traveling. I LOVE these workouts because I hit every muscle group for a great full body workout.

Q 2. How does the Workout Trainer app help you as a fitness professional?

Darlene: Workout Trainer is great for my online clients! It’s helpful because the workouts range from no equipment to a variety of equipment, and some even include pilates/yoga poses. As a Verified Trainer I love that members can discover me and follow my updates, including tips and advice! Also, my clients have told me they feel encouraged and motivated by the online community within the app.

 

Q 3. What is your favorite feature in Workout Trainer?

Darlene: My favorite thing is to share motivational posts, like inspirational quotes, workout photos, and snaps of my healthy meal plans. It’s not just exercise you need to see results, food is a huge part of your plan to be healthy and even lose excess weight. It feels great when this fitness community gets inspired to eat healthy! I also love how I can create quick 5-minute workouts for people to try.

Q 4. What keeps you motivated to stay fit?

Darlene: For me, there are many reasons why I want to stay fit! Being healthy and fit makes me happy and gives me a lot of energy. I want to live a long and healthy life, look young, and prevent any chronic disease as best I can. Most importantly, I want to lead by example for my clients. I can’t preach it, and then not live by my own advice. That wouldn’t be right!

Q 5. Share a secret fitness/health tip with us!

Darlene: My secret is to do what I love to do! The key is to start small, find a trainer, a training program, or maybe a class that you enjoy. If you prefer working out at home, you can use a fitness app like Workout Trainer to find workouts and engage with a supportive community. I always play my favorite music while working out to keep myself motivated. Baby steps lead to big results, so take it as slow as you need to, and always think long term!

I also like to create healthy versions my favorite meals, that way I can still enjoy the food I love, while keeping my healthy eating goals on track.

Thanks for sharing with us, Darlene, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your coaching business!
