HOURGLASS FIGURES(Interview with the trainer)

 

Walks in about 8 minutes late into the interview with sport like attire, black, felted hat and head phones with a smile on his face. Ezekiel Royer better known as Tiraww quiet demeanor is what first strikes me, as he greets me.

Coming from the community of Bath Estate, this 32 year old man (who looks about 26) sits and tells me about his life. Coming from a Christian home Ezekiel had a proper upbringing, he was often soft spoken and quiet individual, though his troublesome ways could not escape him. Being very troublesome Ezekiel found school years were somewhat of a challenge, but yet he prevailed.

Mr. Royer possesses many talents such as vlogging, gardening, modeling, hiking (member of the Next Level Hiking group).

At age 13 he fell sick and was often in and out of the health center, one visit proved he had a high trance of sugar in his blood. This set an alarm for Ezekiel knowing his grandmother died from such a disease, he became determined not to follow a similar fate. That became the genesis of an alternative life style, he decided to change his diet, get involved in Sports such as being on the track team and drink lots of water per day.

His love for the track field drove him to become coach for his old primary school for three years, working with students, giving rise to a few successful runners.

Ezekiel’s breakthrough did not come until he heard about this trainer in Barbados Kenny Griffin, visiting the island to give a training course in Cardio Vascular Respiratory disease fitness. The announcement was made at church and his friend advised him to join, since he was known to be sporty.  The training course was over a weekend and there he obtained his certificate in being a certified physical Community Exercise Leader.

Ezekiel  being a certified trainer was the stepping stone that paved the way to him starting his own personal training business named Hourglass fitness. Locals nick named him Tirawww a name derived from his love for hip  hop and artist Tyga who started a shoe  collection  called Tirawww,which Ezekiel named his youtube channel after.

The name Hourglass Figures speaks for itself as it is for individuals who desire to have not only an awesome shape but be in excellent health. The training are for persons up to the ages of 50, though he has mostly worked with persons in the health district as nurses, he works with anyone willing to put in the work to get definite results. Persons to include 2017 Carnival Queen

Winner Jade Romain, he was her personal trainer for months before earning that crown.

Ezekiel’s training includes private one on one training, gym, fun exercises as his motto is fitness made fun.

He offers one day session for $10(ec), monthly price of $90.00(ec) plus $15 for membership and personal one on one training sessions for $150.00(ec). This trainer stands out as he exercises lots of patience with his clients as he recalls his struggles of when he started off, his amicable nature also causes him to be approachable and easy to train with.

Taking his training sessions to the spontaneous places like the beach, gardens and the stadium. Though his biggest challenge has been getting his own spot to train in as finance has been a burden but he has found ways of making it work, For one he has partnered with a local gym to use their equipment and he gets a small amount of the profit, but the results he gives a well worth it.

He enjoys helping people and assisting them in their physical fitness goals and overall making them healthier.

The interview ends with him stating that being a trainer is no easy road, but being a good trainer is the best teacher”
