Tom is the original Definition FIt TRX Rat. What is this strange, gym dwelling creature? The TRX rat is quite simply the most savagely training mammal known to mankind. TRX Rats comb the gym looking for any equipment to shred into their workout nests. The TRX rat is a clever rodent, building insidious workout mazes without the benefit of a single piece of cheese or even a jelly bean at the end. How do you recognize a TRX rat? Look for TRX straps, cut calves, toned arms, chiseled abs and little piles of protein power left in the corners of the room.
Tom’s awesome TRX classes weave a super high energy combination of body weight, core, cardio and suspension training. His classes hinge on TRX exercises which allow fast transitions that get the heart pumping while focusing on both strength AND cardio. This class pushes your limits without pushing you into an injury. You’ll get stronger, leaner, tighter and the all over tone that Tom’s TRX classes are renowned for.
Tom is also the inventor of the “pinch, pucker and push” technique and a host of other Def Fit workout classics! He’s fun, focused and sometimes even intentionally funny. You need to rush out of your hole, scurry to the gym and get some of this results driven class with the rest of the DEF FIT TRX RATS!
When you step into the gym you better hold onto your hat when hurricane Daemian blows through. As owner of Def Fit she’s internationally known (Pitbull likes to call her “Mrs. Worldwide”) for a high energy class that gets you strong, mean and lean. Her class is responsible for making 7′s into 10′s – day in and day out. That’s 3 WHOLE POINTS of sexy. If you’re an 8 you can expect to walk out an 11! DANG! A few weeks of training with Daemian will leave you ready to rock Siesta Key thru the bikini season and BEYOND. When people from Daemian’s 9:30 class go to Ringling Museum Japanese tourists stop photographing the statues and START PHOTOGRAPHING THEM. Shes one of our most popular trainers for a good reason. Come in and get some for yourself!

You begin Dave’s class crushing hill circuits through the French Alps. The edelweiss smells INCREDIBLE but every fiber of every muscle in your soft, tender body is begging you to PLEASE stop the torture. After THAT, you start climbing Mauna Loa on the Big Island. You’re going to LOVE the feeling the dry Kona breezes blowing across your exposed skin. It’s actually a large fan but the class IS JUST THAT GOOD. After THAT you’re sprinting at the end of the 2009 Tour De France. As you pass that dirty cheater Lance Armstong you throw your clenched fist into the air and cross the finish line in your yellow jersey. Then class is over. Sometimes the Herald-Tribune shows up and takes pictures. It’s pretty cool.
This is supertrainer Nicole Carson, semi-affectionately referred to as “The Honey Badger” because Nicole quite simply doesn’t give a flying s*** how tired you are it’s time to do some freaking exercise – you marshmallow. Just kidding… She cares… A lot… About your lifetime health! So it’s imperative you exercise now! Nicole owns a whistle, a stopwatch and a mysterious journal. She uses all these top secret workout tools to execute some SUPER intense workouts. Her workouts are SERIOUSLY fun, high energy and always memorable. We love her and when she’s not dominating the triathlon circuit she’s here at Def Fit cooking up the best we have to offer in fat burning cardio-strength-badger awesomeness.
This is Liz Lowe, today’s featured trainer at Def Fit. Liz enjoys long walks on the beach, as long as you’re sprinting as fast as you can. Liz can be found training or teaching the most FACE MELTINGLY INTENSE classes we have to offer here at Definition Fit. Liz has a college degree in fitness science which seems like a funny degree until she starts naming all the muscle groups you’re working then demands you do burpees until those muscles bend to her iron will. She teaches a super high energy class and owns a giant rope which sounds cool but is actually quite awkward and heavy. She’s awesome – her clients love her and her enemies fear her. Come train with Liz! If you finish the workout you can have half of a cashew to celebrate.
When – 9:00am – 10:30am
Where – Def Fit Studio A and Parking Lot

Daemian and Dave led the kids through a series of agility and power drills. We used our SPARQ Running Parachute, our hurdles, the NIKE SPARQ Ladder, the rings and cones. We also brought a kid size heavy bag and our golden gloves and they punched their little hearts out! It was a beautiful day and all for a great cause- benefiting the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast. We helped preserve land today too!!
