Frankie Bougher, 26 Personal Trainer at Home and Forever Fit
Family: Wife-Krissy I played college basketball at Jacksonville State. Now, I workout 4-5 days a week doing weightlifting for strength, flexibility to stay athletic, and cardio to stay in shape. An example of my workout:
• Stretch and foam roll
• 15 minute core circuit
• 1 hour of heavy weights focusing on my upper body or lower body
• Stretch and foam roll to finish
“Look at fitness as a consistent lifestyle. Take it day by day, and enjoy the process.” A day in my diet includes lots of eggs, chicken, and fish for protein. I eat vegetables like broccoli, kale, and carrots along with carbohydrates like sweet potatoes, oatmeal, and quinoa. I also eat lots of bananas and mushrooms. My cheat meal is a Huey’s hamburger! The most underrated exercise is the sprint. It’s a true test of what kind of shape you are in. The core is the most neglected part of my body. Strengthening the core gives you so many advantages. The core of a building is its foundation. If weak, it will easily crumble to the ground. My favorite workout move is the pull-up because it’s a great test of pure body strength. Being able to pull your own body weight off the ground is always a challenge. My gym bag always has a pre-workout drink, Fat Gripz, and headphones. I’ve always looked up to athletes like Michael Jordon, Lebron James, Cristiano Ronaldo, Peyton Manning, and Michael Phelps. They all have passion for what they do and work hard for it. When I’m not working out, I love to travel and explore new cities. People would be surprised to know that The Tower of Terror at Disney World started my fear of heights!
