Hot5, a mobile fitness startup based in San Francisco, just launched its newest trainer – Gerren Liles. Gerren is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor based in New York.
Gerren’s focus in the high intensity, quick workouts app is power conditioning. The workouts encompass total-body exercises with multi-planar movement, core strength and stability, deep range of motion, and explosiveness. Most exercises are done through interval training as a way to improve the metabolic conditioning and increase fat-burning potential.
Like all of the trainers on Hot5, Gerren brings his own philosophy, perspective and personal fitness story to the app. Fitness transformed Gerren’s own life and he’s eager to bring the desire to understand how the body works and how to improve it in a way that is unique and enjoyable.
As a former school teacher, he always understood the importance of motivation in any undertaking, being thorough in your approach, and consistency in your practice. Being someone who has also experienced health complications, he’s especially vigilant about helping others avoid the same pitfalls he did with his diet and exercise regiment. Hot5 is another avenue for him to share his love of movement, fitness, and life.
If you haven’t tried the free app yet, Hot5 offers quick video workouts with real personal trainers. It’s designed for people on-the-go to supplement their existing workout routine or get five to 15 minutes in as a way to stay active and fit.
Hot5 uses the principles of high intensity circuit training to a variety of short and effective five-minute workouts. From high intensity cardio, to kettlebell training to Yoga flexibility flow, anyone can find a perfect routine for how the mood strikes. The bite-size content is a perfect fit for an active mobile lifestyle.
The app launched in August and has enjoyed a great success so far. Collectively people have already spent more than 500,000 minutes working out with Hot5 – that’s a lot of calories burned!
Hot5 is available as a free download on the AppStore.
