Name Gabe Yanez
Who are you in 90 characters or less? LETS GO!
Why do you teach/train?
I train so that I can lead from the front. Health and fitness could never be more important than it is today. The only way I can lead people on their fitness journeys is if I prioritize my own first.
What classes do you normally teach / what is your training expertise?
I am a CCFT CrossFit L3 Trainer with over 8 years of experience coaching functional fitness.
How have you adapted your business to still inspire people at home?
At NCFIT, we have adapted our programming to require minimal equipment and minimal space. We want our members to have the tools to workout at the gym, at home, or on the GO!
Are you currently offering virtual classes? If so, when and how can people join?
NCFIT is offering live virtual classes through our NCFIT+ App and through our Facebook group every day.
What advice would you give to other fitness professionals to get through these times?
Stay positive, find your niche, and keep pushing forward. People need our help now more than ever. It is up to us as trainers to keep our community healthy and build a resilient society that can endure the tough times.
How can fitness professionals lift each other up right now?
Celebrate the good news and the wins, collaborate as much as we can, and keep perfecting our craft. A rising tide lifts all boats and our industry will only get through this if we work together.
What is your favorite non-fitness outlet to cope with the current stress of the world?
Baseball cards! I picked up a new hobby because I love sports and I miss them.
How are you giving yourself #permissiontopause?
Prioritizing my own fitness does not mean working out every day. Movement can be going for a long walk or getting some mobility done for the day. Not every workout will leave you on your back gasping for air and that is OK.
