TRAINING DAY 1:
– Hang Clean
– Floor Press
– Split Squats
In order to physically function optimally,cardio and strength training is needed. Most of the time we don’t achieve the results we want because we lack the drive, focus and motivation to push ourselves past our comfort zone, a theory needed in all aspects of life. Working with Edgar, as opposed to working out by myself, made me realize I could be doing a lot more than I thought was needed, and that I could push myself harder than I thought I was capable of. He taught me I did need to do more and…
Before I began training with Edgar, I struggled with committing to a consistent gym routine. I would notice that I was not feeling or looking good and I would run to the nearest gym and sign up for a membership. I would go every day for a few weeks, then I would get burnt out, make excuses and ultimately stop going. I also struggled with my diet. I have never been a yo-yo or fad diet person, but as I moved into my mid-twenties, I knew something had to change with the food I was eating. With my …
Out of Body Fitness played a key role in helping with paving my way toward victory and achieving not just the physical strength, but mental, spiritual and emotional strength as well-Edgar is more then just a coach or personal trainer, he is a friend an encourager and a believer in something greater then himself, someone who will not let you give up when you feel like you want to!! I have been able to achieve many accomplishments from Championship Titles in Mixed Martial Arts to State Titles beca…
When I first started taking classes, I could barley do a couple push ups, couldn’t do a chin up, and could barely button my jeans. I have now been going little over a year, and I can do chin ups and push ups with out a problem, lost 20 lbs, several inches from my thighs, and 3 pant sizes. Not only is my shoulder and knee pain gone, but I can run and bike better then I thought I ever could. The strength and endurance I gained with Edgar’s motivation, and the change in my body even motivated my hu…
Fitness had always been a priority in my life until I was single, pregnant, and giving birth to a 10 pound baby via c-section with my stomach muscles severed in the process. I gained 80 lbs during my pregnancy; I went from 145 lbs up to 225 lbs. After giving birth, I went down to 195 lbs (I’m 5’8”) and began to work out periodically over the course of the next few years with my weight fluctuating between 185 and 195.
I was in a state of mind where I figured one of two things would occur: …
Prior to meeting Edgard, I had a major struggle with motivation and being able to work out in any way. This was creating a very difficult mind body condition particularly after having played a sport in college. Now in my 40’s, motivation has been a major struggle. Over the past 6 months, that paradigm has completely reversed, in that, I constantly look forward to working out – the motivation is there. Motivating myself has become monumentally easier from Edgard’s training resulting in greatly im…

1. What did you struggle with before we met?
I struggled with working out regularly with high intensity, losing weight and keeping it off especially during stressful periods of time, and eating healthy meals to keep my metabolism working correctly.
2. Do you no longer struggle with it – or is it less?
Training regularly has become an integral part of my life. I really notice a difference in both the way I feel physically and mentally when I miss a couple of sessions. I need the sessions …
What I struggled with prior to joining Outofbodyfitness is the motivation and discipline to be committed to an exercise program. I needed a trainer that was well educated in the process of cross training, and that could develop the proper physical program for me to achieve the physical results I was looking for. Personally, I was looking to tone up a body that hadn’t exercised besides daily walks, in over 44 yrs. As a “non” athlete it was important for me to have the one on one supervision so t…
