Fran Martin – While attending college, Fran sought out a gym regiment that would work for him and his lifestyle. He found a kickboxing gym where he was able to burn 700 calories/hour, and he was hooked. After he lost weight and improved his conditioning, a fitness instructor insisted that Fran get certified. But Fran didn’t stop there; he went to get his PT certification and TRX specialty training. Eventually, Fran obtained two more certifications in ‘HIIT’ workouts. He incorporates all of the following into his training with clients: kickboxing, body weight exercises, TRX suspension training, dumbbell/barbell training, and HIIT training.
