Brian L Herrington comes from a small town, of roughly 3,000 people were sedentary was second nature. While spending a good chunk of his childhood overweight, out of shape and not concerned with what he was eating – he decided that things needed to change. Jumping ahead to today, Brian has managed to lose nearly 70lbs, host group fitness classes for an NYC HIIT gym, and taking part in numerous Spartan Race events. His encouragement and motivation helps his siblings and friends to live a healthier lifestyle while being conscious of what foods I’m putting into my body. He loves meeting new and fascinating people on journies similar to his own. Things couldn’t be better!
Why do you Eboost?
If you’re like me, getting enough greens into your hectic schedule can be a challenge, Spruce is a gift from the supplement Gods. And to be honest, it tastes SO much better than that dry, kale salad you’ve been coping with for so long.
What’s your workout routine?
My training routine is very structured. Typically, I cycle three core muscle groups, every other day (i.e. Monday: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps—Tuesday: Back, Biceps, Legs). I’m also a firm believer in the effectiveness of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and without it, I would be lost. No matter what gym I’m in or where my day’s workout is taking place, my jump rope is always with me. In between each weight-training set, I instantly go into a minute of speed jump rope to maintain a consistent, high heart rate.
What’s your typical diet?
Much like my workout routine, my diet is structured and strict. Right down to the exact timing of my meals:
7:30AM (Before workout): POW pre-workout
10AM (After workout): 1 cup Oats w/ 1/2 cup frozen fruit & 1 scoop whey protein and Spruce
12PM: 4 Fried Eggs on 2 pieces of whole wheat toast
4PM: 8oz ground turkey w/ broccoli and 1 cup brown rice
6PM: Large apple
8PM: 8oz ground turkey w/ 1/2 cup brown rice
11:30PM: 1 scoop casein protein w/ handful of spinach
