Fitness Director

FITNESS CENTER LOCATION: Samsung (San Jose)

INSTAGRAM HANDLE: @liuderek

MY INSPIRATION: Spider-Man

FAVORITE TEACHING MOMENT: When a new member nails a proper hip hinge or a proper squat.

FITNESS PHILOSOPHY: “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly, so get out there and move, no matter how little.”

FAVORITE WORKOUT:  Anything that involves less “traditional” movements, such as zercher squats or heavy bag tosses.  My favorite exercise is a cross between a lunge and a crunch. I call it ‘lunch’ (-;

FAVORITE PRE- / POST-WORKOUT SNACK: Pre-workout snack – coffee. Post workout snack – chocolate milk.
