My name is Sophia Perez. When I help my clients, I make sure they download the Fit Radio app. I’m a huge dog lover and I spend most of my time outdoors playing with them. I have 3 dogs who live with me and my husband in Austin, Texas. I’m obsessed with the music scene, laid-back atmosphere, and the amazing running trails near the lake in Austin.
I joined the fitness community about 2 years ago because I was tired of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. When I reached 193 lbs at 5’4 I knew I needed to do something. I needed a good playlist to help motivate me and had no luck making my own. I came across Fit Radio and my workout didn’t feel like a workout. It was fun!
Feeling inspired watching the Boston Marathon? Thinking about lacing up the shoes and training for one yourself? Or maybe you want to start smaller, perhaps beginning with a 5K and working your way up. Whatever the decision, you’re ready to get moving! But where do you even start? We get questions all the time as to how to incorporate Fit Radio workouts into training for a race. First and foremost, know that there are a million ways to get from point A to point B when it comes to training. That’s why it’s usually pretty overwhelming for a newbie to google “Marathon Training Plan” – only 3,600,000 results! Easy. But even if you’re a veteran and looking to drop some time on your next race, there ARE common themes amongst these programs that lend themselves well to integrating Fit Radio into the equation along the way!
We had a chance to catch up with Fit Radio DJ, R Harvz to ask him a few questions about his all-time favorite DJ moments, where he draws inspiration, and his process for creating the perfect Fit Radio mix. (We also learned some interesting things about him along the way…) Here’s what he had to say.
