Skimble’s Pro Workout of the Week: Wall It Out

There are often times when no equipment is needed to get a good workout in. This is one of those times! The only “equipment” you will need here can already be found in your home: a wall. Look, you didn’t even have to buy anything! If wall space isn’t happening for you, get crafty: use a tree, the garage door, a fence, or even the side of your car.Female TRX Instructor doing Wall Diamond Push-UpsDo you have a fitness resolution?

Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: CaSondra LeBlanc

 

Skimble Trainer Casondra Leblanc paddling in a kayak

Meet CaSondra LeBlanc, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! Passionate about preserving her own mobility way past retirement, she’s dedicated her career to helping others join her on this journey. We recently had the chance to chat with CaSondra and learn about her biggest motivators and why she loves helping others achieve their personal fitness goals.

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

CaSondra: I grew up in a small town in Michigan. In college, I knew that my purpose was to help people to keep moving, so I completed my Associate’s Degree in Health Promotions & Management and didn’t stop until I had my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. My dream goals are to keep seniors and mommies moving while being safe for as long as possible.

What inspired you to become a personal trainer?

CaSondra: Seeing our aging population forget their life’s purpose and really just deteriorate by the lack of something to do aside from watching TV on a daily basis. Wanting to create a shift and encourage change for the next generations, that’s been my biggest driver, for sure!

What are your training specialties?

CaSondra: I’m an ACE-Certified Health & Wellness Coach and hold an ACSM-Exercise is Movement specialization cert. I also teach Water Aerobics, practice the importance of Brain Health & Exercise, and most recently became a Registered Yoga Teacher by completing 200 hours of yoga teacher training.

What keeps you motivated to stay fit yourself?

CaSondra: I want to stay moving for as long as possible and keep myself away from medicine as best as I can. In retirement, I would also like to be healthy enough to travel and continue to enjoy getting around.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

CaSondra: Who doesn’t?! Mine would have to be CHOCOLATE 🙂

Who are your heroes?

CaSondra: My parents! It sounds cheesy but they have always been my biggest cheerleaders. They also have a great work ethic, which was important to be around growing up. I try to live by their example every day.

What are your hidden talents?

CaSondra: I don’t know if I really have any hidden talents… I love to craft, puzzle, and read in my free time. Nothing that will win me prizes in the near future, but everyone needs a hobby, right?! 

What’s your favorite Workout Trainer feature?

CaSondra: I love being able to open up the app whenever I feel like exercising and just press the start workout button to get straight to it. Simplicity is key in sticking to exercise routines!

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

CaSondra: I love my Manduka yoga mat – it’s not only lightweight, making it conveniently portable, but I also find that it has just enough cushioning to make any impact exercises less strenuous on your joints.

Please share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…

CaSondra: Find the fun in your fitness routine, no matter what your goals are. It’ll be much easier to stay healthy long-term if you can find some enjoyment in exercising.

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

Skimble’s Pro Workout of the Week: Upper Body Hypertrophy

Hypertrophy with regards to strength training is the thickening of muscle fibers, resulting in strength and size increases. That’s the idea with this extended workout. Pick weights that will allow for difficulty on your last 2-3 reps. The rest periods are important so that when you approach the movement again, you’ll be as close to 100% recovery as you are able. The end of the workout will be topped off with a short high-intensity segment just to let your body know what it can do.
