Posted on 17 January 2010 by Jason White

surf lunge

This is one of those moves that is nearly perfect and benefits not only athletes prepping for their workout or sport but also for general fitness enthusiasts getting ready for their weight lifting routine.

The move is executed by lunging one way and reaching back across the other way. The key elements are to stick your rear end out as far as you can, lean forward a bit and lay the inside edge of your foot (on the long leg) on the ground. you will feel a good stretch on the inside of that leg while you fee he opposite glute loading up with your body weight. Spring up to the center and then switch to the other side.

Attention Surfers and Paddlers

Posted on 17 January 2010 by Jason White

Paddle: HARD is a one hour bootcamp designed specifically for aquatic athletes that paddle for their sport. We meet twice per week at Elysium Fitness at 117 West 72nd St. 2nd Floor. Wednesday night’s class is at 6:30 pm and Friday night’s class is at 7pm. The class begins with a movement preparation routine that warms up all the muscles and stretches tight areas.

It is followed by a core section that trains abs and low back muscles specifically needed for surfers (most famously and the part of the class with the most groaning is the “swim and pop” – 5 repetitions of simulated surf paddling followed by the all important “pop up” that every surfer needs to master to get in position quickly and efficiently).

We then play the “pushup game” using a medicine ball to challenge core and upper body strength.

The most challenging part of the class is a circuit that focuses on conditioning the pulling muscles needed for your paddle sports. There is simulated rowing, simulated surf paddling, and general conditioning to get you into great shape so that you can be more competitive in your sport, last longer in the water, and have more fun.

We finish with a cool down and stretch. The class costs $30 per session and you can reserve your spot by calling 212-721-1010. You must call to reserve before each class since there is room for only 8 athletes.

The class is taught by Jason White, CSCS a veteran New York Personal Trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach. He regularly surfs Long Island and is focused on helping as many people as he can to become better athletes and more competitive in their chosen sport.

Buddy Bootcamp NYC

Training hard at Buddy Bootcamp at Columbus Circle, New York City

Introducing Buddy Bootcamp the mini training camp that gets you fit while saving you money.

In response to a need created by the recent downturn in the economy Jason White the owner and Head Fitness Coach of Trainer Direct, LLC has started a new program designed to help new yorkers shed unwanted pounds brought on by ineffective training programs, build and tone muscle, and deliver a customized personal service all while saving clients money.

“The recent economic strife has affected everyone and with the holiday shopping season in full force everyone is looking to save a few extra dollars. It is as if everyone suddenly became a bargain shopper and is looking to cut corners.” says Jason.

“My business is Personal Training which means I give 110% to one client one session at a time, but with the economy the way it is I decided that the best option was to help clients save money while still delivering the personal service and attention that has been the cornerstone of my business for the past 10 years.”

Traditional boot camps offer a great deal of savings on a per session basis but that savings comes at the cost of personalized fitness routines. Many camps are great if you fit into their system, but if you don’t then you miss out on the customization and personal attention that benefits those who work one on one with their trainer.

The Buddy Bootcamp system is for 2 clients and one trainer. This allows the clients to get personalized fitness routines during a much more interactive workout session.

“We usually end up laughing a lot in between exercises” says Jason ” The sessions are filled with partner based exercises that force the clients to work together to complete the exercise objective which results in more challenging exercises, better results, a good feeling of partnership, teamwork, accomplishment… and TONS of fun!”

Buddy Bootcamps are for 2 clients only, there are limited time slots available and while it is not entirely necessary teams should already be at matching skill and experience levels.

The cost per Buddy Bootcamp is far below that of normal one on one fees.

“My normal session rate is $125 per hour so taking on two clients would make my session rate $250 per hour. Offering a steep discount on the bootcamp session brings the price per participant to far below normal session fees saving participants hundreds of dollars per month. As you can see this adds up to a win-win as the clients can save money while still getting personalized service.”

Please be sure to include all your contact information, preferred time of day, and method of contact in the body of the message form.
