This is a well-rounded cross training program that helps you strengthen and lengthen your tissue to encourage stability and health of your muscles and joints. The workouts in this program include strenuous and dynamic yoga poses to activate circulation and increase flexibility, static poses to move deeper into the muscle tissue, and breathing exercises for increased lung capacity. Cross training workouts are designed to be used in between other training routines, recovery workouts can be used after sporting activities, and pre-workouts are meant to warm up and stretch the body prior to exercise. Remember to breathe deeply throughout your practice to oxygenate the body and speed up recovery. Recommended prop: a towel.

Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: David Rivera

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: David Rivera

Meet David, Skimble’s latest featured Trainer! David is a nationally certified Personal Trainer with a B.S. in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training. This Georgia Fitness Coach developed a strong drive to help people after undergoing his own 80 lbs drop – talk about dedication!

We recently had the chance to chat with David Rivera about his personal fitness journey and how he uses Workout Trainer to help others achieve their goals.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: David Rivera

Tell us a bit about your shift from Athletic Coach to Personal Trainer?

David: I was an Athletic Trainer for various Sports Medicine Programs at High School, College, and Amateur/Semi-Pro level for over 10 years. Within that time I neglected my own fitness and no longer represented the knowledge and discipline I promoted. I took a step back to make lifestyle and priority changes that would allow me to find a healthy balance. After my own transformation of going from 250 lbs to 170 lbs for my first Half Ironman, I chose to become a Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach. I knew I was able to relate to individuals struggling to find a balance in life, work, family, etc. I felt compelled to help others as my educational background prepared me to not only rehabilitate athletes back from injury, but to assist individuals with any physical limitations to successfully attain their personal goals.

Having undergone such a big transformation yourself, what keeps you motivated to stay fit?

David: Feeding off the energy of other like minded individuals as we all grind through our struggles, but strive to be our best every day.

What’s your own favorite workout style?

David: I have evolved from triathlon and endurance training as a focal point and am now enjoying powerlifting. My favorite workouts are the Leg Blaster and Powerlifting Chest workout. I’m also dabbling in weightlifting at the moment, I like taking on new challenges.

How has Workout Trainer helped you build your coaching business? 

David: It’s been a fantastic way to stay in contact with my clients, send workouts if schedule conflicts arise, and give feedback for improvements. I can now provide one-on-one coaching from anywhere. The workouts are great for my clients to cross-train when out of town or on vacation. As the Skimble community grows, it’s become a great place to feed off the incredible energy and motivation shared throughout.

We’re so happy to hear that! Do you have a favorite feature in the app?

David: My favorite features are the playback and audio cues that accompany the exercises. They make it easy for my clients to do workouts when I’m not with them in person for guidance and coaching.

Finally, please share a secret fitness or health tip with our community…

David: Challenge yourself to your own standard of success and never let anyone dictate the path you choose in your fitness journey. There are 101 ways to attain the same goal, but it’s up to you to find the path that keeps you motivated, consistent, and progressive. Never let fear, outside influence, guilt, or doubt become a factor in your journey – Trust Your Process –
