A fourth-degree black belt and international competitor for the national Cuban taekwondo team, Alain Alvarez is no stranger to hard work. After retiring from international competition in 1998, Alain decided to turn his talents to training others through fun, inventive, and effective Fitness Boot Camp and Personal Training sessions. Each class maintains a furious pace, as students sweat and bound through body-weight exercises, sprints, agility drills, and anvil juggling. Sessions also integrate fun group activities such as tug of war, potato-sack races, and tag-team butter churning.
Alain preaches that exercise can improve not just physical but also mental performance, and conducts classes on the beach, in a parking lot, or on the grassy fields of a local park.
When was established and what is the Objective of Miami’s Top Fitness?
Miami’s Top Fitness was created on March 30th 2006 with the objective of introducing our training philosophy based on the perfect combination of 20 years experience as an athlete, 10 years of great studies about training at the university level and 20 years teaching at different levels in several countries and states. Keep in mind that part of the studies conducted in this area coincided with the same time he was training then continued while he worked as a professor.
What motivated to establish Miami’s Top Fitness?
Working in the Fitness area as an instructor or personal trainer only requires one to pass a test that certifies you as a personal trainer or take a course with the company that you will be working for, both are very basic. Hence the reason that we observe so many errors in warm-up exercises, incorrect strength dosage in the number of repetitions, exercise organization, and there is neither control of work intensity nor a test that demonstrates the real student achievement.
In sports such as Taekwondo, all that is required to become an instructor is obtaining a black belt but earning such a distinction only shows that you have learned the applicable curriculum as a good student but it doesn’t guarantee that one has acquired the necessary knowledge and methodology to teach and train a young person. If that would be true then physical education teachers wouldn’t have to go to school and pass a state exam. Since not all ages share the same biological and psychological characteristics, we must know which method and procedures are appropriate to use.
To deal with such deficiencies, Alain Alvarez created a portal www.sobretaekwondo.com, the best and only site of this type. There, he shares his numerous articles based on scientific research and videos that help Taekwondo instructors and athletes to conduct their training based in scientific foundation and in the most efficient way.
