Healthy Black Man of the Month- April 2016
Darrell Warren has never had a weight issue in his life. A former member of the military, he’s used to exercise and living a active lifestyle. In fact, he’ll be the first to tell you he has good DNA.
“I have to say I have parents who have always been active. I have good genes, but I definitely have to maintain what they gave me.”
Honest talk from a personal trainer who’s working toward having his own fitness facility. When you talk to Darrell you instantly become aware of his commitment to the fitness industry and his clients. In fact, he’ll be conducting the “ADONIS” Boot camp in Palm Springs this month.
Personal trainers provide direction and support to individual clients and small groups desiring fitness instruction and motivational support. They tailor fitness plans to the unique abilities and needs of each client and help them overcome psychological and physical barriers to living healthful, active lifestyles.
“It’s important to have a fitness trainer who is invested in you and your goals. Any trainer can run a client through exercises but you’ll find better motivation for your clients when they see you personally invested in their goals.”
Now in his forties, Mr. Warren also sees his share of gym members who do this one potentially harmful thing; “I see it all the time. People who don’t know how to use a piece of equipment and instead of asking, they pretend and do an exercise incorrectly. Some get an attitude if you try to tell them but they can hurt themselves.”
If you are in the Irvine, California area and seeking a great personal trainer, check out Darrell Warren for sure.
“I think I help my clients by also motivating and inspiring them. You have to have some intention to make health changes but I know at some point all clients need a cheerleader or a coach to help them stay motivated, I love that part of my job.”
