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.
Hey, Fit Radio Fam! It’s your coach Keisy Myumi, and for those of you who have not tuned into any of the Fit Radio workouts, my name is Keisy, and I am a certified master trainer and unconventional strength specialist. I have been an Active Isolated Stretch Practitioner for 3 years and I make it my business to be an advocate for consistent stretching. I have a background in ballroom, latin, and swing dancing, so flexibility for me is a gift and a curse. It’s great when it comes to my range of motion, but in order to really get a good stretch, it can sometimes be difficult alone.
Hey Fit Radio Fam! We’re sisters, Lauren and Kelly of SISSFiT. We grew up in Orange County, California and have played sports our entire lives. We ran Division 1 Track and Field together at UC Irvine and upon graduating realized that we were not ready to give up our love for fitness! Though we chose different career paths, we were constantly exchanging workouts with one another and when possible, meeting up for a little healthy competition and accountability! We became the “go-to’s” in our friend circles for workouts and training and figured it was time to get certified and begin building something we were truly passionate about!
