Randy Blair

B.S. Fitness and Human Performance
Crossfit Level 1 Trainer

I have been involved in fitness my entire life. I have had the opportunity to learn from the best. At the University of Houston, I trained under the guidance of Tom Tellez, one of the most decorated Olympic sprint coaches of all time. I also had the opportunity to run with and learn from track and field legend Carl Lewis and other members of the Santa Monica Track Club. I briefly ran for Texas A&M University as well. I graduated with a degree in Fitness and Human Performance from the University of Houston under the guidance of Dr. Eugene Coleman, Strength and Conditioning coach for the Houston Astros. I am married to my high school sweetheart and I am the father of three beautiful children. With the education and knowledge I have gained through many years of experience and great teachers, I will continue to seek God’s guidance and teach the importance of fitness and health; physically, mentally, and spiritually (1 Timothy 4:8).

I started training over 20 years ago while I was in college. After receiving my degree in Fitness and Human Performance, I continued to train while also teaching full-time. In 1999, I wrote a mission statement for a business I planned to one day open called Trinity Fitness. In 2003, Trinity Fitness became a reality. I trained for 6 years in a small, private studio where I trained with both free-weights and selectorized machines. In other words, I trained the way I was trained to train rather than the way I trained myself.

I had always trained very athletically and functionally. I have a great video that I shot in 1999 with a friend where we were doing what we called the "Obstacle Course" workout. In it we did push-ups, pull-ups, handstand push-ups, sit-ups and plyometric jumps all in one workout. I loved training this way but never even imagined training others the same way. That was until the summer of 2007 when I discovered CrossFit. CrossFit didn't necessarily teach me anything that I didn't already know about elite fitness but they did give me the confidence to start training others the same way I trained myself. In addition to my college degree in fitness, I have been a certified CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.

There are many trainers and facilities that train similar to myself. People have more than enough options and I think that we are slowly but surely turning the tide on becoming more healthy. I have done this my entire life and it is one of my greatest passions. I definitely practice what I preach and have every intention to continue doing what I have always done and that is to be healthy physically and spiritually. My goal with Trinity Fitness is to help others do the same.


Amber Blair

Crossfit Level 1 Trainer

After working out for nearly 18 years the traditional way (weights then cardio), I had totally burned out.  I have had three kids and my body was definitely not the same.  I was getting older and knew I better find something I could do that wouldn't take too much time but still be extremely effective.  My kids weren't going to give me 45 minutes to weight train and then another 20 for cardio.  I would be lucky if I could get 15 minutes before they found me in the garage trying to workout.  My husband has always done a variety of workouts such as obstacle course workouts, interval training work outs mixed with weight training and his fitness level has always been outstanding.  I was finally wondering how and if I could do those kind of workouts.  Several years ago, he decided to have his clients do what he has always done, which is now known to many as CrossFit.  He has followed many of the same principles that CrossFit does for many years with out even knowing of CrossFit.  I had watched a few videos of CrossFit and started to become a little interested wondering how in the world those people did those workouts!!!  I decided to try a workout.  I was amazed that I made it through the whole workout although it was modified.  But I got a taste of how a short workout could be so very effective!  I did more workouts on my own for a while and then was really missing working out with other people.  I had always trained with my mom for many years and loved it!  I asked Randy if I could come in on one of his classes.  After that first class, I was hooked!  I loved having others to share the "sweat" with.  It was fun to be nervous together, to sweat and burn together.  That is one of the wonderful things that CrossFit develops, a community.  You are all there for the same reason; to get in better physical condition than you were before.  After many workouts with these other ladies, I slowly began to get stronger and started getting closer to their times.  The clock became my competition.  I wanted to be the first one done!  I had never been a competitive person until then.  The friendly competition that arrives is wonderful for your workout.  Having someone to push you a little further than you may push yourself is awesome!  CrossFit workouts are functional workouts that prepare you for anything!  Sure I want to look good, but I also want to run and play with my kids with out getting out of breath.  I want to be able to run up a couple flights of stairs without giving it a second thought.  CrossFit is fitness for your life!  Once you get a taste of what being strong is like, there is no going back!  You feel younger than you are, happier than you were and proud of yourself for pushing through a tough workout!  I CrossFit because I can!  There is nothing like it!

The Garage

After years of training in a small climate controlled building filled with selectorized machines, I have officially moved to a more functional facility...my GARAGE!

After 6 months of testing it out, we have found the results to be profound. These workouts don't require a lot of equipment or take a long time yet are more effective than anything you have ever done. Give me a month and you won't want anything else. It becomes ADDICTIVE! All it takes from you is a desire to better yourself and the humility to do that in my garage. A recent client, who is a long term runner, said it best when she said, "You think you're in shape until you do this."

Comfort Zones

As a full-time teacher, I get a pretty good glimpse of our future and the differences between my generation and future generations. One of the alarming differences with our kids today is their inability to handle challenges. I understand that things are different now than they were 20-30 years ago but I definitely see that we can't afford to neglect passing on some of the important lessons we were taught as kids. One of those lessons that our kids need is the lesson of being uncomfortable and how to handle it.

Recently I had a 16 year old student refuse to walk home, although he had already been given permission from his parents, because he thought the walk was too far and it might make his feet hurt. I ask more questions as to where he lived and it was just under 3 miles. This student chose to wait 4 hours before his parents could pick him up rather than take a 3 mile walk on a beautiful 60 degree day that would probably have taken him less than an hour.

Life is not always going to be La-Z-Boys and video games. How do we expect ourselves or our kids to handle life's challenges if we don't train outside of our comfort zones? I believe exercise is one of those ways that we can train our kids with how to handle being uncomfortable. Before long, we can actually become comfortable with being uncomfortable.

I recently starting my own children on a workout program. What was interesting is that while they were uncomfortable temporarily during the workout, they had a since of pride and accomplishment when the workout was over. They are always asking when they get to workout again. I can't help but think that they will handle life's challenges better than had they not learned to leave their comfort zones.

My advice: Take the stairs sometimes. Park further away from the door. Hand-wash your car every once in a while. And when you workout, get comfortable with being uncomfortable.


Leaded vs Unleaded

Some of my clients have been asking about their diets in relation to their new workout regimen with me. We follow a high intensity, functional way of training that burns a lot of gas in a short period of time. So with that being said, I will once again compare our bodies with our cars.

This particular client is concerned that her diet is sabotaging her gains from this new way of training. She has been a jogger for years. Our type of training is basically the opposite of that. She is now craving more food and is worried about calorie consumption.

Along with our analogy, this person has been driving her car like an old couple taking a Sunday stroll home from church - steady-state, consistent, and very fuel efficient. Now all of the sudden, she is taking that same car and racing it like a 16year old with a new drivers licence.

It is real simple. If you want better performance from your car, especially on race day, you have to give it better fuel than leaded gasoline. The same goes with the food we eat. We need to eat as clean as possible to get the best performance possible from our bodies. If you are topping off your fuel tank with high calorie foods, you can't eat as many and it will definitely hinder your performance. The best part about eating the right foods is that most are very low calorie which means you can put more fuel in the tank.

I learned this lesson by actually writing down everything I ate along with the nutritional facts. I found that I could load my plate with lean meats and vegetables and still reduce my calories compared to when I ate half of that portion size in pasta, breads, and fattier meats. You could basically eat a plate of good food for the same amount of calories as a soft drink.

So the next time you are ready to fill your tank just remember what my football coach from high school used to tell us, "You can't drive a Cadillac on leaded gasoline."

Cheetah vs Lion

I was watching a documentary on Animal Planet the other day and I saw some video that was very interesting. The video was of a cheetah actually being chased by a lion. The videographer said that he had never seen a lion so aggressively pursue a cheetah for such a long distance. What I found almost laughable was the fact that the cheetah was clearly much faster and it kept looking back at the lion as if he were crazy. It was almost as if the cheetah was thinking, "Uh, you realize I am a cheetah don't you? You have no chance of catching me. You may be stronger and bigger but when it comes to speed, I am King of the Jungle!"

I immediately thought about some of the athletes I have trained recently. They are high school kids who spend the majority of their training working on getting bigger and stronger. Getting stronger is good and essential to being a great athlete but what was missing was speed development. Speed is arguably the most important factor for any sport from grade school through high school. College and professional sports is where speed must be matched with strength and power.

The fact is that on a football team for example, you really want a balance of lions and cheetahs. You may want to throw in some buffulo as well but my philosophy hasn't changed since high school, "I don't care how big and strong you are. If you can't beat me to the endzone, I WIN EVERYTIME!"

My advice to athletes is to train to be better athletes. That means to not focus too specfically on one thing but to become good at many things. Speed training needs to be one of those focus points. Being big and strong will help you but being fast will make you King of the Jungle.
