Currently, Tom is one of the top trainers in the Metroplex with over 60 client sessions per week.
How To Fit Working Out Into Your Holiday Schedule
Bernadette talks about how her daughter’s Italian cookies drove her a little crazy, crazy good! Tom says that we all are trying to get on track with our lives in general. Half of the battle is just showing up to workout, to move your body. At the end of the day, if you don’t take care of your health, no one else will. The most time and body effective workout you can do around the holidays is something high intensity. You want to get your heart rate up and give your all you can effort in that moment! The goal when Tom is training someone is to maximize their own benefits. During the holiday season, a combination of weight training and cardio is the best for keeping off weight!
Support from other people to workout is key. The last thing you want is no support. You don’t want someone who only eats pizzas and burgers around you. When you do have that support, you are allowed to have the small successes that lead to big successes. The journey began when Chris tried to seek out a shaker cup that would keep his drinks cold with the convenient easy-open pop-top lid. Chris also wanted to be able to use it all day long, not just at the gym. So, the Ice Shaker Bottle was born!
Chris Gronkowski is the owner and inventor of the Ice Shaker, vacuum insulated bottles that hold ice for over 30 hours. He first made a career for himself as a professional football player, joining the NFL in 2010 after being signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a fullback. During his years in the NFL, Gronkowski also played for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. Now, with the help of his four brothers, Chris Gronkowski puts all of his energy into running Ice Shaker, continuously updating the product line while improving the experience of protein shakers everywhere.
Chris Gronkowski’s Life Lessons from the Locker Room
Diane Gronkowski-Walters ran one of the best teams in the country. Her five sons. Chris’s mother made her sons go outside and play! That turned into backyard baseball, football, and impromptu ice hockey games! Once all the boys got into high school, their backyard sports turned into high school sports and that launched the brothers’ careers. Chris Gronkowski inverted the Ice Shaker Bottle and it took off after Chris appeared on shark tank!
