Adrian Del Villar, UC San Diego Personal Trainer
Adrian is passionate about helping others in their pursuit of fitness and making sure they are able to stay in that pursuit by focusing on proper form, fundamental movements, and injury prevention. The last thing he wants is for someone who is taking the steps to improve themselves physically to be hindered in that pursuit by pain or injury. We cannot all be Arnold but we can all strive to be just a little bit better than we were yesterday.

Veronica Lito, San Diego Personal Trainer
If there’s anything I’ve learned in my journey with fitness, it’s that anyone has the ability to set fitness goals and conquer them. Even the most elite athletes started as beginners. In fact, fitness goes far beyond physical abilities and being an athlete; it truly has the power to transform every aspect of a person’s life! Fitness has transformed my life in all of the ways listed above - and so much more. As a trainer, I take everyone on their own fitness journey and get them to their desired goals!.

Personal Trainer San Diego Iron Orr Fitness: KO Your Stress Quickly! 😰🥊

HIIT and How it Benefits Stress Relief

Stressed at home?

Stressed at work?


If the answer to any of the above is yes, well…we know how you feel!!
If you’re a student, have a job, or a stay-at-home parent, it’s almost inevitable that pressure and stress is going to get to you at some point. COVID-19 hasn’t helped in this area.

How you deal with that stress is what makes the difference. 
While people feel stress in similar ways, each person’s body reacts to stress in its own unique way.
You might have to figure out an effective way of dealing with your stress according to what works best for you.
However, there is one thing that has proven to be useful for almost everyone; exercise!
It is a known fact that exercise can help relieve anxiety and stress in people of all ages.
When you take part in any physical activity, your body prompts your brain to release endorphins.
These “feel good” hormones help stress management and encourage your mind to organize its thoughts, think clearly, and be more energized. That’s a great thing, right?!!
There are plenty of different types of exercise that can help you cope with stress.


One of them is known as HIIT.

HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a fast way to get a good workout in. The workout combines high-intensity exercises with short breaks for recovery in order to maximize their effect. The workout’s primary purpose is to help you build endurance and burn calories in a short amount of time. Moreover, HIIT does not have fixed exercise routines, which means your workouts can vary each time you train.

One downside to HIIT training is if you have joint problems, have been sitting a lot, or your muscles are tight, HIIT can be counterproductive. While HIIT is great, we strongly recommend you DO NOT jump right into a HITT training program without the following:

  1.    1.) Learning how to properly foam roll. Foam rolling any knots or adhesions that may have progressed during your “time off” will help with tissue extensibility and mobility; thereby reducing the risk of injury.


  2.    2.) Doing a structured warm-up program that gets your nervous system and body in a state to perform prior to “putting a load” on your body.

  3. Working on proper form and technique to gain knowledge and proper movement patterns with your core lifts prior to doing a ballistic, high velocity workout such as HITT. This is essential and imperative for you not to get injured during a HIIT workout.



Ask Personal Trainer San Diego Iron Orr Fitness  about how to prepare for HIIT workouts successfully, so you can gain the benefits of HIIT without the potential muscle contusions, tightness, extreme soreness, and injuries that can come from going from a de-conditioned state into a HIIT program.

Benefits of Hiring an Online Fitness Coach

Top 5 Reasons to Attend Virtual Fitness Classes During COVID-19

The coronavirus pandemic may have all gotten us stuck indoors but that certainly gives us no excuse to just let our fitness progress come to a stand-still. In fact, your fitness is very important now, more than ever.

So, no, you can’t just turn your back on your goals. Now is the time to look for ways for you to be able to continue your road to that chiseled body or, if not, maybe just an overall healthier and slimmer you. 

With that in mind, what could possibly be the best option for you, now that most of the gyms are closed or have severe limitations?

How to 10x Your Fitness Goal with Certified Online Fitness Instructors

Achieving one’s fitness goals is easier said than done. And the way things are right now, particularly the lack of accessible gyms, only makes it a double-whammy for everyone. 

That said, it’s definitely high time for you to start looking for alternatives to ensure you will achieve them. No buts.
What’s good is that certified online personal trainers pretty much offer a ready solution to these challenges. It’s not so much about the benefit of being able to do things remotely as well.

How Coronavirus Is Changing the Way of Exercise

The fitness industry, particularly gyms, was one of the first to close down when the coronavirus pandemic struck. Such a move has, more or less, dealt a blow on people’s motivation to exercise. How can you have the drive if there are no tools available or people you can work out with? As if people needed more alibis to not exercise, huh?
