Growing up in Hawaii, Jake had his falls as he was the stand out kid being the tall white kid. He also was quite chubby growing up which led to other kids picking on him. Not being convinced this is what he is stuck with, and also being bullied every now and then, he chose to fight it out by dedicating his time to sports and working out.
He ended up getting a full-ride scholarship for Basketball and nursing to the University of Jamestown. He became passionate about sports and balanced his nursing education through learning how to keep his days organized and on track. He shaped up his degree and the body together, and harmonious life as we know it.
He now runs his online health and body business that is customized based on client needs. With entrepreneurship in his essence and enthusiasm that drives his zeal, Jake credits his incredible success and happiness to his love for transforming the lives of everyone through the online training.
Within 90 days of inducing the online training platform, he came across Sarah Foley, who was a future Ms. Wheelchair Hawaii.
He poured his heart and soul in her training, and this journey was awe-inspiring, to say the least.
Check out these four manageable plans to get the most out of your fitness routine according to Jake Havron.
Don’t strain your body too hard. “Don’t try to kill yourself in the inadequate time you have committed to exercising each week,” says Jake. You should have a realistic strategy and realize that exercise solely is probably not going to produce wanted effects as it estimates for a small portion of your daily calorie burn. You need to take into consideration other factors like nutrition, sleep quality, stress management, etc.
Changing the focus. Pay more consideration to the minute touches and the secrets of actions (form, procedure, etc. to avoid injury) instead of the number of steps (squeezing a few extra reps to burn a few more calories), suggests Jake.
Keep the Smart Approach Principle in the subconscious. The Smart Approach Principle states that in order for a muscle to grow powerful, the body must be required to adapt to a pressure that is above and beyond what it has earlier encountered. “If you’re doing what you’ve always done, your body is never going to change. You have to contradict your body in position to change your body,” Jake reveals.
Learn to enjoy. “Training for many is not something they undoubtedly want to do, but somewhat something they feel obligated to do. It’s a means to an end,” Jake points out. “Learn to enjoy training to the point where you opt to participate willingly rather than out of some responsibility,” he says. “If you dread going to the gym, find a fitness class, a game, or some other exercise that enables you to have fun while you move your body,” suggests Jake.
In addition, work with a reliable professional who can effectively screen for action dysfunctions and coach good form, says Jake.
Ease into the habit.
If you’re new into the fitness world, start by concentrating on perfecting consistency first. Once you’ve achieved that, then constantly fine-tune variables like the regularity, strength, and span of your workout suggests the fitness expert.
Meanwhile, Jake suggests beginners to originally aim for the “2% movement” goal. “It means that they should aim to purposely move their bodies for 2% of their day, which works out to being about half an hour,” he points out. “People usually know that they’re deemed to exercise for 30 minutes per day, but you can always aim for more. When you re-frame that purpose as 2% and make it all about action, not exercise, it becomes much more doable,” explains the body transformation coach.
