The Speed Date
We sat down with Danielle for a quick speed date sesh to get a little more personal and figure out the one thing everyone wants to know..."How did you get those abs girl???". Check out the interview below:
ZELO: So how did you land this whole trainer gig? It seems like you were made for the fitness world.
DF: 100% by ACCIDENT. My current roommates at the time came to me mid-lunch and told me that our Student Rec center was hiring group fitness trainers and that they would be pumped to take a class if I offered one. I had no idea that anyone would have desire to come to me for training, but decided I had nothing to lose. As I came into the office the receptionist said "Are you Danielle Fawaz?" They then said they had been waiting for me. Definitely something I will never forget, given the fact that I had never applied for the job-I WAS STOKED.
ZELO: What is your training style with clients?
DF: That all depends on the client! Taking into account any injuries, specific goals of the client, fears, and conditioning level. Most commonly, I love combining weights with sprints as well as high volume body weight endurance movements!
ZELO: What is your best fitness advice?
DF: Surround yourself with people who give a sh@# about their bodies and their health!! I am a huge advocate for surrounding yourself with people who you admire-this will yield more challenging and satisfying goals, with a major support team.
ZELO: Give us a play by play of what you eat on the reg...we need to know where those abs come from!
DF: I freakin' love eggs. 3 eggs sunny side up in olive oil with Lebanese bread. This diet isn't for everyone though - I personally need tons of carbs because I burn calories, FAST. I've always had a fast metabolism, so I have to try really hard to keep my muscle.
Other than that peanut butter & honey on rice cakes, avocado ANYTHING, and I am always eating leftovers for lunch from dinner that i've cooked the night before (so many easy recipes!) I eat clean the majority of the time, but I don't punish myself by missing out on fun events with friends just because I'm worried about eating clean. Personally, I think it is just as important to have a fun meal with friends, as it is to kill yourself in the gym every day.
ZELO: CHEAT MEALS...spill it.
DF: Mexican. All day. And a Zaxby's birthday cake milkshake. THE END.
ZELO: What is your favorite healthy recipe?
DF: Sweet Potato pancakes!!! SO EASY.
-1 Large Sweet Potato
Blend & cook in pan with coconut oil. AMAZING.
ZELO: What is your favorite gym in ATL?
DF: CROSSFIT 404 on Miami Circle in Buckhead. My boyfriend and I visited four CrossFit gyms in the area and knew we weren't going anywhere else when we found this place! Truly a blast to be apart of. From events, to frequent upgrades to the facility, and the belly laughter during every class, it is home for us.
ZELO: How many times per week do you workout and what do those workouts look like?
DF: I train 3-5 times/week depending on my travel schedule! I workout at Crossfit404, and as a trainer, it is a major relief to walk in and drop the reigns with programming for yourself. I enjoy that.
ZELO: What does your cardio routine look like?
DF: Cardio is so not my friend. Well, just running. Other than sprints I am always having to mentally prepare myself for anything over a mile, and it's something I'm constantly working to improve!
ZELO: How do you stay motivated?
DF: Keeping my goals visual and constantly checking myself and my values with my best friend, Mariam. You have to have at least 1 or 2 people you can be 100% honest with about where you are in life. Everything looks great on social media from the outside, but just being able to have a reality check is motivating enough for me.
