With Personal Trainer, Debi Lofstrand, partnering with us on the launch of our #TrainForYourGame campaign, we just had to find out more about the inspirational lady behind the debijaneFIT brand…
The latest Net World Sports campaign launched just last week with the aim of challenging you to train for your game, no matter what the sport. We don’t want any excuses and definitely no mediocre attempts, so what better way to get you motivated than team up with some of the best Sports Performance Coaches and Personal Trainers around to provide you with workouts to take your game to the next level?
DL: I always loved working out as teenager in South Africa. I trained through all of my pregnancies and really enjoyed the endorphin rush it gave me, so when we moved to Texas nine years ago as a family, one of my friends offered me a job as a group fitness instructor. From that point on wards I decided to carry on my studies and become a Personal Trainer.
DL: I try and workout around six days a week. My favourite training has to be HIIT, which works well with the #TrainForYourGame campaign! I like to do my HIIT training with a treadmill and weights to ensure I’m really getting an all-round workout.
DL: A typical day for me starts by coaching a group fitness class. Then it’s home for breakfast and to get my son off to school, before I begin my personal training sessions with clients. I tend to get a workout in for myself late morning, followed by lunch and another client for personal training. By mid-afternoon I head home in time for my son to return from school and continue with admin work. I then coach another group fitness class in the early evening and sometimes finish with another client before returning home to prep for the next day.
DL: I stay motivated to train by having a goal that gets me to every workout I have planned in order to achieve that goal. I mark these workouts in my planner and am flexible to fit them in super early if I know my day is going to get really crazy. I always stay focussed on my goal so when I’m tired and my motivation may be somewhat lacking, I remember the awesome feeling you get when you smash it!
DL: I decided I wanted to reach more people, inspiring them to live their best life and create a lifestyle they could be proud of… what better way of doing this than through Instagram?! I continued to post and received some social media training which has led to the next steps of creating a website for online training and workouts.
DL: Fitness wise my future looks great, I’ve set new goals for 2019 that will definitely keep me motivated. So far I’m looking to complete an Ironman, my regular 100m bike challenge in the Texas summer heat called Hotter’N Hell Hundred and then a marathon in the fall.
DL: Good music is a must! Also, always have a plan! Don’t just wander into the gym and then see where the action is. Get a workout from a trainer or hire one if you feel that will help you get started in the right direction. You could even join a few group fitness classes to get you started!
DL: It has to be the Battle Rope, I will be recommending it to everyone!
