Jaiya Figueras, owner of Your Next Victory in Long Beach, visited our new gym in Costa Mesa. Jaiya has been involved in athletics, trained with some of the country’s best strength coaches and currently trains in Long Beach, CA. Check out what he has to say about the new facility and the future of strength, training and conditioning.
1. Open Space allows a good personal trainer or strength coach to be creative. If a gym is full of equipment and machines, it should set off an alarm.
2. Training to your limits and developing mental strength. Learning to develop your mental strength is just as important as developing your physical body. Most people do not push themselves hard enough.
3. People need an emotional reason to workout. There needs to be a deep rooted motivation that drives you when times get tough, or it is easy to quit. Maybe it’s survival, your kids, a big event…
4. Success breeds success. When you find a gym that pushes your limits, learning to persevere and pushing through your limits can transfer into all areas of your life. If you quit in the gym, odds are, you quit on a lot of other things too.
