Bio

Rodrigo Helal

 

I am a certified personal fitness trainer. After completing my degree in Exercise Science at the University of Memphis I truly began my experiment in fitness. I was once a very fit exercise enthusiast. I was an avid runner, kickboxer and mixed martial arts student. After an accident and injury, like many people, I became depressed and began a downward spiral that eventually led me to letting myself go. Because of this and my renewed drive to become a healthier person, I am able to relate to my clients in a way that most trainers cannot.

I can identify with overweight and obese people because I, too, have been challenged by obsessive overeating and a significant decline in my own health. My body is still a work in progress and, as a trainer, but I have chosen to strive towards healthy weight loss which is the “slow and

steady” method that has proven to have great and lasting results. I now benefit from conservative weight loss, lower cholesterol, lower resting heart rate, healthy blood pressure, decreased stress on my joints and low back, as well as improved mobility.

While I  do not match the standard profile of a slim, athletic or well-muscled personal trainer, I am equipped with sufficient tools and education to accomplish your fitness goals. No matter how small each step in the right direction actually is – each step forward is one step closer to better health.

I believe my journey in recovery and exercise can prove as a testament to what can be done even if you don’t think you are capable. I would like the opportunity to help you overcome your own challenges. Please contact me today to learn more.

Regards,

Rodrigo Helal
