Are You Not an Athlete?

Sprints with Miss Prestin (PrestinFit) from Laura Prestin on Vimeo.

And it’s not even workout Wednesday

Growing up I have always been a sprinter.

However, this does not mean that you need to have been a sprinter as well, to progress to a high intensity training regimen.

I love incorporating sprints into my workouts, for myself and my clients.

I have seen amazing progression with clients who never sprinted their entire life, and started at 33% body fat carrying a shit load of weight, making any form of interval training extremely difficult for them. They had to start at a slow walk of 2.0 mph.

Now their sprints are up to a 11 mph with amazing results 🙂

My point is that with the proper training, you can throw genetics out the window and get rid of the mentality that you were not athletic growing up.

Why? Bc you can ALWAYS improve your physical ability.

You can view clients testimonials and progression photos on my blog🙂

    Using with high intensity training intervals it can be very useful . The same mindset can be used in a pool if joint health is an issue of for variety

    I am athletic but never ran except doing sprints in college between workouts. For unknown reasons I prefer biking and incorporating really fasts bursts to get the HIIT effect. I will try doing these sprints again though on the treadmill and see if I can drop a a few body fat % points though. I am curious how long it took the clients to go from 2 mph to 11 mph.

      Hi Cori! Thats great!:) Make sure to keep your time under 25 minutes of high intensity. You’ll burn the fat right off!

      It took her about 6 months, but everyone is different:)

      It’s really amazing what you can do with consistency, dedication and determination.


      Let me know how it goes!

      Have you tried out my program yet? I think you would enjoy either of them if you like high intensity training
