Learn the Secret To Being Fit Like a TS Coach
Though you may not see our coaches banging our reps while you’re in the studio, every member of our team is dedicated to practicing what they preach: consistent work to get the fitness results that they want. To get better understanding of how hard our coaches train to stay fit, Coach Henry shared his workout routine and nutrition program.
Inside Coach Henry’s Routine
Coach Henry likes to keep his exercise routine rather simple. Henry works out almost daily, about 5-7 times a week. “I get very antsy if I don’t workout so I try to get at least 45 minutes of gym time per day but sometimes that’s not possible” Henry said.
Two of his weekly workouts are actually intense and involve cardio. He likes to try studios around the city, such as recently working out EverybodyFights, or with a training partner. Aside from his high intensity workouts, the rest of his week is filled with 45-60 minutes of solo weightlifting sessions.
Recovery Is Important
“I try to stick to an upper/lower body split” said Henry. “This means I’ll do upper body (chest, back, shoulders, arms) one day and legs the next.” Each 45-60 minute sessions consists of 5 sets of each exercise for about 10 reps per set.
For upper body days, Henry employs the bench press, chin ups, dumbbell bench press, and cable or T bar rows. “For arms I do curls and tricep extensions” said Henry. His lower body routine consists of barbell squats or deadlifts, trap bar deadlifts, RFE split squats, or regular split squats, many of which you will find as part of our Group Personal Training programs that Henry designs. By sticking to his body split, it allows Henry to give his muscle groups about 48 hours to recover.
Eating for Fuel
Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of any fitness program. Coach Henry tries to eat fruits and vegetables daily and eats high calorie foods like red meat and pasta to maintain his weight. Henry makes sure that he gets enough calories in his diet otherwise he begins losing weight almost immediately. If you are interested in learning more about how to improve your nutrition and learn the best way to feed your body, feel free to reach out to any of our coaches.
Consistency is Key
At the end of the day, everyone has different fitness goals but they key to success is consistency. Like Coach Henry, we recommend you put the time in at gym to see the progress you want. Coupled with a quality nutrition program, you should be well on your way to seeing results. We are committed to developing the program that will get you to your goals, which is why every program kicks off with an assessment and goal strategy session and is constantly tweaked through reassessments and goal discussions.
