First of all, Javier Torres we are so proud of you and are honored to have to as a trainer and coach here at Definition Fit. Secondly, thank you to everyone who came out to Tampa to watch & support Javier. Also, thank you to those who live so far but still took the time to watch him online!
- At the rules meeting the referee said this is your warning, any fingers in the eye will be a point taken or disqualified. Later the cutman that they supplied put vaseline in Javier’s eye before the fight, preventing him from seeing clearly before the fight even started
- The boxing commissioner saw this happened and went to Javier’s team after the fight and told them he saw it
- Javier then was poked 3 separate times in round 1 – this is highly dangerous and illegal in MMA
- During the bell the opponent hit Javier 3-4 times while referee was trying to stop the round
- The cutman never even put an inswell on Javier’s eye while in the corner
- The doctor was the one who stopped the fight
Currently Javier’s team is trying to get the fight under a review. They are attempting to get it ruled as “No Contest” which means each fighter receives a NC counted in their record and is scored as neither a win nor loss. Javier’s team hopes to push further for a DQ and see the opponent fined as well. They are also still pushing for a rematch. Thank you to everyone that came out to support the fight. We will keep you updated.
Dr. Dave Smith has a presence at Definition Fit even before he walks through the door. As one of our first Personal Training Clients, he has built his body into a well built brick house! He always has a smile on his face, is willing to be pushed to his limits, tries new things willingly and is a pleasure to work with! You can’t ask for more! That’s why a month was just not good enough for this guy! We affectionately nicknamed him Johnny Bravo because he is just that cool. Don’t even try to compete…as his endurance, strength and stamina is beyond compare. His workout buddy is more than 10 years younger and his challenges help give Dr. Smith his edge. After all, he’s got a hot wife and a beautiful baby to protect! Thanks for being so cool and tough Dr. Bravo!!! You make us look good.
Here’s his story-
I was introduced to Definition Fit and Tom’s TRX Power Class 4 years ago when I was looking for a trainer that could intelligently analyze my fitness level and personalize a workout for me. Too many other gyms just wanted to bulk me up and I was more interested in maintaining strength and lean muscle while losing body fat. Tom knew instantly that I needed to work on my core and on lengthening my muscles so as to prevent injuries and help me keep up my active lifestyle as I neared 50 years old.
My favorite hobby is helicopter skiing and even when there are no helicopters around, I still like to ski the more extreme stuff! The whole crew at Def Fit has always taken an active interest in every person that works out at their facility no matter which trainer has you as a client. Tom educated me in all aspects (workouts, core, TRX, cardio & nutrition), but I have learned a great amount of practical information from everyone there about proper form, different functional training exercises, dietary tips and more.
Tom’s TRX classes and personal training hours have definitely gotten me in the best shape of my life and with an incredibly strong core that serves me well not just in skiing, but in everyday life as well. It helps me keep up with my growing toddler! The best is when a new masseuse at a ski lodge asks me if I am a professional athlete or when a client at my veterinary practice asks if I used to play football. I have to laugh and say “No” but then I always give credit for the compliment to Tom Johnson and Definition Fit!
Ok folks, the early morning fun continues! We are thrilled to announce that Levi Root has joined our team and will be brining his awesome class ROOT CAMP to our schedule. Join Levi on TUESDAY mornings at 7am beginning November 4th!
Levi Root joins the Definition Fit team from Burlington, Vermont, where he was a four year letter winner on the Men’s Varsity Track and Field Team at the University of Vermont. Through the tutelage of his event coach he developed a passion for the human body and increasing athletic performance. After graduation in 2010, Levi became certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, holding their Certified Personal Trainer credential, as well as coaching Division 1 high school track and field at Mount Mansfield Union High School. Levi began working with corrective exercise and finding ways to make every body as efficient and pain free as it was intended to be. This lead Levi to golf fitness, and back to game that he has been playing for over a decade.
Levi became certified by the Titleist Performance Institute as a Level 2 Fitness and Level 2 Power Development Professional and opened Root Golf Performance in May of 2014. Following the TPI model Levi is able to identify physical limitations in a person’s body that cause inefficiencies in the golf swing, robbing it of power as well as consistency. Levi believes that every body is meant to perform at its peak, and only by starting from the ground up can optimal efficiency be achieved. When not training you can find Levi playing various sports ranging from golf, to cycling, to rugby.

When Bob Gorevan walks into Definition Fit everyone stops what they are doing and announce “Bob’s here!”. He is just that important to us all! Though he’s retired from his duties as a Sarasota Police officer, he is always looking out for us. His presence can be felt as soon as he enters the room and the clients and trainers appreciate his enthusiasm and effort. He has a great sense of humor and is adventurous with his workouts. He is always willing to try something new and usually aces it! His focus, determination and will-power keep everyone around him motivated! We are grateful this amazing man chooses Definition Fit as his gym!
Here is Bob’s story-
I retired from the Sarasota Police Dept with a lot of aches pains and bruises. I made getting back in to shape a retirement goal. After belonging to every “corporate” gym in sarasota I decided that I needed a different approach. I heard about Def Fit and know a few members so i decided to check them out. I found Tom Johnsons Power TRX class and after a few classes knew it was right for me. It offered the two aspects I’ve been looking for, “Core and Cardio” I’ve been going for a year now and feel great. I also go to Tom for my personal one on one training too. Working out on a regular basis has given me the oppurtunity to enjoy my second passion…….cooking and enjoying barbecue !
