Definition Fit's Member Feature: Joe Phillips

One day, soon after stuffing himself at Thanksgiving Dinner, Joe Phillips got sick and tired of feeling old and heavy! He took a good look at himself and realized that after his knee surgery he had come up with every excuse not to work out.

The days turned into months and soon it was a year or so since he hit the gym. The weight piled on, the pains got worse and then he decided he had enough! He called Coach Levi Root in early December 2016. The next day they started training.

Levi used his years of experience training high level athletes and began to develop a program for Joe to move more efficiently and to gain both strength and endurance. They moved slowly and precisely so there would be no more excuses not to work out.

Since then, Joe trains twice a week with Levi and they focus on a variety of muscle groups and do a combination of strength, speed, power and movement exercises as well as applying the principles of isometrics using the Isophit. In addition to his sessions at Def Fit, Joe runs 5 days per week.

He’s training for another Marathon this September and hopes to beat his previous 5 hour marathon time. Joe’s runs consist of speed work, repeats, tempo runs and long runs. He's following a plan that he and Coach Levi designed to get him to his goal. Joe says he will be happy just to finish as he knows he will cross that finish line 43 plus pounds lighter than when this journey began.

Joe’s focus was not on weight loss, but the weight started coming off week after week. At the time this article was written, he lost an astounding 43 pounds! He has added years to his life expectancy and is healthier and happier than ever. He takes good care of himself and takes Sundays off to rest and recover and gets plenty of sleep, uses ice, compression, ice baths and massage. Joe is sensible in his food choices yet he does not follow a particular diet. He burns the calories he consumes and then some.

Joe is still hot in pursuit of his goal and we are proud that he has chosen Def Fit and Coach Levi to help him get there! We are confident that Joe can and will crush it!

Johnny was born in New York, NY and his family moved to Sarasota, FL when he was about three months old. He now resides in Sarasota with his girlfriend of 7 years and along with her, is a proud parent to a beautiful baby girl. He is the son of an American Goju Ryu karate instructor and has grown up in the martial arts world.

At just 4 years of age, Johnny was introduced to karate by his father. When he was a high school sophomore, he earned his 1st degree black belt and by his senior year of high school, he decided to fully pursue kickboxing. It was that year he made his first trip overseas and traveled to Germany to compete in a WAKO Light Contact Point Fighting tournament.

In 2013, Johnny was the BLITZ Martial Arts League State Champion for Traditional Forms and placed 3rd overall for Point Fighting and Continuous Point Fighting. Johnny is currently a 3rd degree black belt in Goju Ryu karate and a trainer at a local Title Boxing Club. He continues his own training with multiple World Champion Erik Marshall at Erik Marshall’s Kickboxing, Muay Thai & MMA in Bradenton, FL.
