Meet Zycco W, a TruBe trainer and bodyweight strength training expert.
What is your biggest client success story?
This would have to be Mark Fisher. Mark had a stroke over a year ago and the whole of the left side of his body stopped functioning for a year. When I first started training Mark, he ate quite badly and could not stand up or straighten out both arms. It took him 10-20 minutes to walk down a short road.
With my training, he has become a lot more confident, being able to stand up on his own and he can straighten both his arms. It now takes him 3-4 minutes to walk down the same road. His eating has drastically improved.
What do you enjoy about being a part of the TruBe Team?
TruBe is a lot like Uber for personal Trainers. I love the way TruBe has incorporated an on demand app into the fitness industry, making Personal training more flexible in London.
What was your biggest health and fitness obstacle and how did you overcome it?
I started my bodyweight training journey over a year ago. It’s been very challenging mentality, but I love pushing myself always trying to improve and get stronger. I am looking forward to being a well known bodyweight specialist.
What is your favourite piece of TruBe equipment?
The resistance bands. I use them on a regular basis and I’m always trying to think of new ways to incorporate them into my workouts.
How do you treat yourself?
I treat myself by doing other things I love such as photography, videography and graphic design. I also like a cheeky pizza.
What is your favourite motivational quote?
“If not now, when.” “Love and Give, and it shall be returned.”
What is the best piece of advice you have received from a mentor?
The best advice from a mentor would have to be “You are your own brand, everything you do represents your brand, so be the best you and be proud of you.”
How do you find balance in your life?
I find balance by practicing being in the moment, enjoying being with whoever I am with and doing whatever I am doing.
