Jillian Harris

Focused On The Goal

Knowing your goal clearly when it comes to working out is one of the most beneficial assets to your fitness journey in my opinion. If we don’t have a clear picture of what we want, what we are willing to sacrifice and how hard we are wiling to work to get there. The road can become very long and extremely frustrating for you along the way.

One thing I know about training Jill, is that she has a very clear picture of what she wants out of the workouts and is willing to give 100% in every workout. I have never seen Jill drag her butt, complain or not show up for a workout. If Jill says she is going to do it, she does it hangover or no hangover 😉 Because Jill has her goals clearly marked out and always comes bringing her A game, I know every workout needs to be built to suit her needs.

Like many woman, Jill’s main focus in our workouts is that I challenge her core, butt and inner thighs. I know Jill has no desire to bulk, build a lot of muscle or start running marathons. So I build her workouts with the foundation of Barre, Pilates and Bootcamp style workouts.

Barre/Pilates is one of the best ways you can create lean muscle that supports the structure and stability of our body while making us look and feel longer and leaner. Barre is a series of movements that challenge our small muscles groups while having us sweat and cry out for mercy. These type of workouts are going to push you to a whole new level in your physical and mental strength.

Combining small muscle group training with resistance and cardio bursts is a recipe for success! Because Jill is not looking to build big muscles, we keep the weights lighter and the repetitions high while combining it with the perfect amount of cardio to keep her heart rate up and the calories burning. By creating a circuit style workout we are able to hit the full body and get the greatest benefit for the time we have together training.

    Hi Jillian/Rachel. What height plyo box do you recommend. I’m 5ft 4″ with good fitness. I’ve been wanting to get a box for a while now but wasn’t sure what height.
    Thanks and great workout. Love my subscription to Daily Routine Fitness. More TRX workouts please and anything I can do outside as that’s where I love to be. Some tips on using everyday household items instead of pricy gym equipment also welcome. I use a filled laundry detergent container instead of a kettle bell : )
